This certainly didn't smell like catnip but I thought maybe it was just sitting on a shelf too long. I decided to 'gut' the toy and fill with fresh catnip. It was stuffed with polyfil and not any catnip whatsoever. Cute toy but falsely advertised.
This was a winner

One of my cats has adopted this as one of his toys to beat up on. He's a big bunny kicker and I wanted him to have more opportunities for this exercise. I did spray it with some Feliway initially, but now that he's not afraid of this new thing in his territory, he goes to town on it all on his own. I'll just rub a little catnip on it now and then in the future. I like the way it's made, no parts that can be dislodged. Like his Lamb Chop, I'll just have to take needle and thread to it here and there when he's had it long enough to rub the fur off and expose the stuffing. No big deal.

I thought this platypus was adorable but as soon as I took it out my cats sniffed at it like, “ why did you get us that?” They preferred the chewy box, which is a sleeping box for one of them and my other cat loved the crinkly paper inside.
Great kitten size kicker

The litter of kittens we are fostering love this kicker! They like the crinkle tail and it’s a good size for them to kick and wrestle with.
Leo played with it straight away!
on Jan 5, 2021
Leo LOVES to play with the wrapping paper after presents are opened, so when Leo got his toy to my surprise, he stopped playing with the wrapping paper, walked over to his new toy and started playing with that instead! It went on like that the rest of the morning. Now he still plays with it occasionally, but he is not as excited because he ripped a small hole in it and some of the crinkly stuff came out, so it doesn’t make as much noise. He ripped the hole within 3 days of Christmas, I would mark the durability 3 stars, but since he still likes it a lot I will give the overall 4 stars.
My cat’s favorite!
on Oct 6, 2020
This was the perfect kicker toy for my cat. He loves to wrestle with it in short bursts and often rubs it against his face or chews it. While it took him awhile to warm up to the toy, it’s now surpassed his other kicker toys as his favorite.
A couple notes about the toy:
1) I trimmed down the fur on the platypus’ tail a bit before giving it to my cat, as he has a tendency to groom his toys. I would recommend doing the same to anyone with a cat with similar habits.
2) I’ve recently noticed a small hole in the seam where a bit of stuffing pokes through. Since my cat usually doesn’t tear his toys, I wouldn’t recommend this platypus to anyone who has a cat with more destructive tendencies.
Both Kitten and Puppy Approved

I have a 5 month old kitten and a 2 month old puppy. Of all the toys I bought for both of them, this is both their favorite. It crinkles in its body which makes kitten love it as a kicker toy and it makes it interesting for puppy to chew on. Even if it’s destroyed down the road, I will definitely be replacing it time and time again.
tail pulls apart to easy

Thought this was going to be bigger, my fault for not looking at the dimensions. My cat was only interested in the tail and was able to pull clumps of the hair out. Had to take it away because I was concerned about her ingesting the.

This has been my cat Pajamas's favorite toy since we got it! She loves the cat nip and has absolutely gone to town on poor Plat E. Puss's torso. He withstood a good 2-3 months of playtime with PJ, which is very impressive considering how sharp her claws are! Would definitely recommend this toy if you are looking for a cat nip kicker toy that is absolutely precious to look at.

Did not like. The tail "hairs" come out real easy. The furry body snags. Too expensive for its size. Thought it would be bigger.
