The KONG Squirrel Refillable Catnip Cat Toy is another favorite amongst cats and cat owners. Not only is this cat toy a great plush toy, but it also has the benefit of catnip. Rather than having to throw out the cat toy when your kitty looses interest, you can simply refill it with a fresh batch of catnip and it’s like having a brand new toy.

KONG has an assortment of these refillable catnip critters to choose from. The adorable 5” long squirrel is a very popular pick. Just keep in mind that the KONG Squirrel is a bit smaller than some of the others. Another thing to consider is the fuzzy material of the tail. If your cat has a tendency to chew on things, the tail on this squirrel toy might not last very long. The KONG Beaver Refillable Catnip Toy on the other hand has stood the test of time with a very aggressive chewer.

The KONG Squirrel Refillable Catnip Cat Toy is sold with a small vial of natural North American catnip. Simply open up the Velcro-lined pocket and stuff it full with fresh catnip. Another great feature with this cat toy is the fact that it is washable. Just remember to empty out the catnip before washing.

Tip: Keep your catnip and catnip toys in the freezer to preserve the freshness of the catnip. It’s also a good idea to keep your catnip toys in rotation so your cat doesn’t get bored as quickly.
