Egg rolls for cats you say? Why not, as long as they’re catnip egg rolls that is!
These realistic catnip egg rolls ($22) are the latest addition to the Asian-inspired line of cat toys by all-American company Polydactyl Cats. The collection started with modest soy sauce packets cat toys ($12-$14) and expanded from there!
My gang was fortunate enough to be asked to “taste test” these latest Asian additions, and as you can see from the photo below, they were up for the task!
I must admit I’m partial to the fact that Polydactyl Cats is founded by one über hot cat woman by the name of Randi Warhol. You’ll never guess the product she originally set-out to make before turning to cat toys or how she raised the funds to start her company.
I’ll have to convince Randi to write a Cat Woman Wednesday column to spill the beans! In the meantime you’ll have to give me your best guesses in the comment section – can’t wait to hear what you come up with!).
All Polydactyl Cat toys are made in the USA (Philadelphia and New York City) from locally sourced and recycled materials. Randi’s fabrics are one-of-a-kind having been created from photographs she’s taken of Asian food procured from New York City’s very own Chinatown!
The catnip used is all-organic (it’s from Canada but we’ll cut her some slack on that one since her local Connecticut catnip source went under!).
Granted they’re not inexpensive cat toys, but the unique textiles combined with the fact they’re made locally is a big plus in my book. Plus, a portion of proceeds go to help animal organizations.
And hey, aren’t your kitties worth a little splurge now and again?! Love the packaging; these would make great holiday gifts.
Check out the before and after scene below. Looks like a frat house! I’d say between this and the video it’s pretty clear my kitties are egg roll fans!
And last but not least, Randi’s very own good-looking felines! Elliott, the orange polydactyl is posing by the company’s first product, soy sauce packets (they come either “squirting” as pictured, or “sealed“).
Bowie (a grey girl named after Davie Bowie) is striking a pose behind some won ton soup and lo mein. You can see more of their professional modeling portfolio on the company website.
