Many pet parents are familiar with the Kong brand of toys, which is known for making highly durable, rubber chew toys for dogs. The Kong brand has since expanded with more dog toys, and even toys for cats! The Kong Hugga Wubba Cat Teaser is one of those toys, and it will keep your cat happy and busy time and time again.
The product description reads:
Kong Hugga Wubba Cat Teaser offers fun, interactive play with your cat. Simply assemble the two-piece teaser pole and let the fun begin! Kong Cat Wubba is specifically developed to appeal to a cat’s instinctive desire to stalk and capture prey. All Cat Wubbas rattle and are infused with natural catnip.
The design of the toy has the classic, bulbous Kong shape on top, and is covered with a bumpy, fuzzy wrap that extends past the bottom of the toy with four soft “legs” that dangle to entice cats. These legs also let them pull the toy around if they capture it. The inside of the bulb has a jingle bell to wake up Kitty’s ears during play time. The toy is attached to a string with a long stick so the human can move the toy around accordingly.
The Kong Hugga Wubba is very durable and won’t shred or come apart during play sessions; however, the handle that the toy is attached to tends to split apart easily (it is packaged so the stick breaks apart for storage) during play, and isn’t as durable as the rest of the toy. Two two pieces of the stick screw together. The elastic that attaches to the string is also easy for cats to chew through, so if your cat likes to chew, it is a good idea to put the toy away when it is not being used (which is also important for safety).
Even if the stick breaks or your cat chews through the string, this “octopus-style” toy is still a winner for cats, as they will chase it and wrestle with it as is.
Kong Hugga Wubba Cat Teasers are often featured on pet deal websites like Barking Deals, so if you want to try it out with your cats, keep checking back to get a discount. The toy is also available on Amazon for $5.58 plus shipping (prices may fluctuate with time and vendors).
