Jake & Micah: Olives, Cookies and Sushi for Cats!

I’m all about cat toys and accessories that are an extension of my personality and aesthetic.  So I was super excited when Mei Zaums, founder of Jake & Micah (and former NYC resident), offered to send one of her cat-nip toy for the cats to test-drive.

Jake & Micah, named after Mei’s cats, was founded in 2007 when she found herself frustrated with the poor selection and quality of cat toys in the marketplace.

Perfect for a singleton inthe city - with cat(s)

Imaginative. Modern. Organic. Beautifully Handcrafted” sums up the company philosophy and they certainly live up to it!

While my personal favorites are the oversize martini olive and sushi we decided a fortune cookie would be fun to review in honor of National Fortune Cookie Day (who knew?!).

As for how the cats liked the fortune cookie? Well, a picture is worth a thousand words.

While beautifully packaged, I really appreciated the ASPCA pet rescue sticker we received with our toy. I’ve been meaning to get one of those! Great idea Mei!

I thought it would be neat to introduce you to the two beautiful mancats after which Jake & Micah were named.

While they are  no longer with us, thanks to Mei their memory will now live on forever. Jake,was a vocal highly intelligent Siamese who enjoyed macaroons, drinking from the faucet and cuddling while Micah enjoyed licking feet (his own or others I wonder) bird watching, and giving massages.

Mei’s current cats are  Jonah, Fionna  and Micky. You can meet them over on her blog.

  • OMC my Cody and I LOVE the Fortune Cookie toy and would love to win one! 🙂

    • Ihavecat

      Hi Caren! Thanks for entering! Good luck!

  • How amazing those toys are! I think my favorite is the fortune cookie takeout box – fortune cookies because they seem like they would hold up to a lot of playing, and the box, because it is several of them, as well as such a cute way to package them.

    • Ihavecat

      Hi there! I’m not sure the entire box counts as just 1 nip toy, but you could at least win one cookie! 🙂
      Thanks for entering! Good luck!

  • Kiki

    I think my kittens (Dexter & Roxie) would really like the Lucky Cat Fortune Cookies!!! They like to carry small things around in their mouths and hide them from one another. Very cute product and it’s Kitteh-themed!

    • Ihavecat

      Aw that’s so sweet Kiki! My boys don’t do that, but Haddie does sometimes, is so cute when she does! Good luck! Thanks for entering!

  • The fortune cookies are too cute, I love that they have actual fortunes on them lol! I think Birdie would love a cookie (not only does she have a crazy obsession with catnip but she loves tags on things as well). The Catmint Green Tea is really cool too!

    • Ihavecat

      My sister’s kitty is called Birdie too because she twerps! Does your kitty do that too? Thanks for entering and good luck!

  • Gina O’Connor

    How stinkin’ adorable is that ! Fortune Cookies for cats !Yet it is our good fortune that we have our furrbabies…..We MUST spoil them !

    • Ihavecat

      Thanks for entering Gina! I take it the Fortune Cookies are your fav? 🙂

  • Trevor M

    My Peyton would love the wasabi sushi fortune cookies. I can imagine her kicking up her back legs while holding one between her front paws, reading her fortune. They are just too cute!

  • Roxanne

    The rainbow cookies are adorable. I love rainbows and I know my kitties will love a sweet catnip treat. We like to buy them catnip cigars. May as well start them off on something better for them. ;p

    This is a cute site and I will keep them in mind for future catnip runs!

    • Ihavecat

      Roxanne, thanks so much for visiting and entering! Good luck to you and your kitties!

      Thanks for entering Melinda! Good luck to you (and your kitty!)

  • Stacey

    Love the catnip products!!! Gorgeous fabrics and colors – gives the usual toys a little ‘umph’!! 🙂 Both my furbabies are catnip crazy and would be proud owners of any of the toys – their catnip-mouse has been well loved and needs to be replaced soon.

    • Ihavecat

  • Donna Florio

    Wonderful toys. If the catnip is as potent as the toys are cute, cats and owners will love them.

    • Ihavecat

      Thanks for commenting Donna! If you’d like to enter, visit the Jake and Micah site and let us know which toy is your fav!

    • Ihavecat

      Thanks for entering Maree! Good luck! Make sure to visit us on “the” facebook if you aren’t already a fan!

  • We love all of those cool toys. The martini olive and the sushi are our favorties, but the fortune cookie looks like fun too.

    • Ihavecat

      Good luck! Thanks for entering! Winner to be announced tomorrow!

  • Catnip Martini Olives are my fave. The cats enjoy them, too, as they’re always batting them around the house. Of course, they’ve destroyed two fortune cookies and a Swiss Catnip Roll, as well as yanked the tag off of a Catmomile Catnip Teabag, so I don’t think they have a preference…

    • Ihavecat

      LOL! I love those too! What lucky kittens you have – so many Jake & Micah toys! good luck to you and thanks for entering!

  • This is so exciting that we might be able to win one of those wonderful toys. We just never seem to have enough green papers to buy any of them and they are lovely toys. We went and looked and liked the Wasabi Sushi fun cookie. They are really pretty. Thanks so much for giving us this opportunity.
    Have a great day.

    • Ihavecat

      Hi there! So sorry I didn’t reply to your entry earlier! The winner will be selected and announced shortly! Stay tuned!

  • We kitties like the catmint green tea best. Jan has tea bags around the house but none of them are catmint, so we think we should have a teabag of our own.

    • Ihavecat

      I totally agree! Thanks for entering and good luck!

  • Tootie

    I like the green tea bag toy.

    Sometimes my mom puts tea bags over her eyes and those little dangly papers hang down. Grrr, i want to play with them so bad! But I somehow resist. If I had my OWN tea bag toy this would no longer be an issue.

    Oh, and the catmint sounds DElish.

    • Ihavecat

      That sounds like a great idea! A teabag your very own! I’m not sure how you resist the temptation with your mommy’s teabags! You must be a VERY well behaved kitty! Thanks for entering – good luck!

  • We’d love to enter! Our favorite toys are the atomic retro cookies. We love all things retro!

    • Ihavecat

      yay! thanks for entering! good luck to you!

  • Tamar, I love the fortune cookies toys, I might just have to order some for Pearl and Jack. Keep up the great work with the blog, I LOVE it……

    • Ihavecat

      Rebecca, my cats really loved the cookie! thanks so much for entering and for being such an amazing supporter of IHAVECAT! squeeze the kitties (and the kids) from me!

  • Lisa Hill

    My girls would LOVE the Fortune cookies! Consider us entered!

    • Ihavecat

      Consider yourself entered! Thanks for visiting – hope you check out some other posts! good luck!

  • Wow — what a wonderful website — I’m always amazed at (and a little jealous of) the talent out there. The kitties took a vote — they would most enjoy the Catnip Sushi Handroll because they are bright and colorful and of course have little “handles” for ease of carrying around. and they did PROMISE not to bat them under the stove, refrigerator, washer or furnace closet.

    • Ihavecat

      it IS a pretty neat website isn’t it! thanks for entering and GOOD LUCK! 🙂

  • Shani

    I think all the toys are adorable, but my cat would love the catmint green tea! He loves anything with string on it that he can hunt, chase, or swat at!

    • Ihavecat

      so cute! thanks Shani for entering! be sure to visit us on facebook if you haven’t already ( you can upload a photo of your cat there!).
      good luck!

  • Amy Roach

    I love the sushi rolls, but I was overruled by the cats,
    Nala, Lucy, And Tess. They have chosen the fortune cookies as their favorite!

    • Ihavecat

      Those fortune cookies are pretty cool I must admit! Thanks for entering Amy and good luck to you and your kitties! If you haven’t already, be sure to upload pics of Nala, Lucy and Tess to the I HAVE CAT facebook page!

  • Debbie Buckley

    We like the Biscotti Fortune Cookie. Mom gets Chinese takeout and she always gets a cookie, and we would like to have a cookie of our own too.

  • jmuhj

    Since green is a favorite color around here, we love the Wasabi Sushi Fun Cookie Box. But gosh, it’s so hard to choose! We have a zebra-striped fortune cookie from Jake & Micah and it is one of our most popular toys. 😉

    • Ihavecat

    While I am particularly attracted to the sushi toys, I have a feeling my cats would vote for the fortune cookie toy and since it’s for them…
