Finally, Petie Cat(nip) Toys!


When queen of cat women and founder of Moderncat Enterprises, Kate Benjamin offered to design an I HAVE CAT edition of her Modkicker catnip toys, I didn’t think twice! I had so much time collaborating on the fabric pattern, and it was exciting to see the final product!

Cat with toys

As you can see from the above photo, each cat toy has been checked by Petie himself for quality assurance (and to impart his scent). So now you can have a little-bit-o-Petie in your home.

And, not only did Kate design these fun catnip toys, but she has them made in the USA with organic catnip grown in Bend, Oregon.  So support a domestic business and buy one or three! They make great gifts!

But don’t take my word, see what these happy customers have to say!

Merlin and Gracie were both attracted to their new IHAVECAT catnip toy!  I’d like to think they smell Petie…but I’m sure it’s the cap nip.   They both took turns licking it and I’m sure that when Raven wakes up, she’ll sit on it affectionately, like she does her other toys she likes.” – Sharon from Bayside Queens (and Mother of Gracie from Vieques)

Ginger and Erwin – two happy customers!
