We recently adopted a rescue cat that hides under the bed in the guest room. I have been trying some different toys to entice him. Decided to try this catnip banana. He showed no interest when I went under the bed to show it to him, but I left it in the room anyway. The next morning - - it was very obvious that he had played with it during the night :) and it was the only toy he played with during the night. He is now playing with other toys during the night - - but he really loves that banana, it's his favorite. He has played with it so much that he needs a new one, so I am ordering 2! We have had him for 3 weeks and still runs under the bed when I walk in the room but at least I know he is having a blast with his banana when I am not there.
This purchase was well worth it. My male cat uses this toy multiple times a week. He likes to walk up to it, roll on the ground and lick it. My female cat, when she is able to play with it in peace, she likes rabbit kicking. This purchase is months old and it still gets them going. And it's held up to licking and scratching so far. And they are still interested. Well worth it.
I purchased two of these banana toys. My cats loved the toy and started playing with it immediately. Unfortunately the material is very thin and flimsy. Both banana toys were torn and leaking catnip after only about ten minutes of play time. Also one of my cats got his fang stuck in the thin fabric. Very disappointing experience since the toy was expensive and provided such short term entertainment before it was destroyed. I won’t purchase this again, there are similar catnip cat toys that my cats love that are sturdier.
I have been buying these for years and they kept my cat occupied for hours - he would play with them until only a dirty limp peel was left. Unfortunately the last few I bought were not the same - he batted them a few times and ignored them until I threw them away. Maybe a different cat ip source? Sad day for kittydom.
As a petsitter I have given these catnip bananas to many cats over the years. The cats were usually crazy about them and so excited to get them. I replaced them periodically as they wore out. The last 2 batches I have purchased (at a higher price) were rejected by every cat I tried them on. So something is wrong with the quality of the catnip. Won't buy again.
My cat can smell this before I even open the box. It doesn't last long but he loves it. I just wish I could get a painting of my 15 year old senior kitty. Everyone on Twitter is getting one and I am so jealous. Doesn't Rocco deserve one too? LOL
My cats absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this toy! Especially my 21 year old! She rubs, kicks and rolls all over it! It’s great seeing her play like a kitten again! BEST cat toy I’ve ever bought! They last a really long time…I’ve never had one fall apart. Easy to wipe off and vacuum the hair off. Once it gets to a limp, really worn state I just buy a new one and watch them go catnip crazy!
Maybe my cat is just a monster idk! She liked it but after a few play sessions, she had punctured the Banana and now it spills catnip everywhere! Maybe it is not meant for rough play but come on, I expected it to last a little longer. She is an old lady too and it could not take her bites
I bought this and within the hour my kitten destroyed it. It broke at the seams and when she bit into it she ripped the fabric. It looks like she’s had it for years. She obviously loved chewing on it but it’s not durable.
Our two cats were each gifted these catnip bananas several Christmases ago. They eventually demolished them. I found them again on Chewy and they took to them as soon as I took them out of the package. I should’ve had my camera handy for a video. These are the most fun cat toys!
