Toy Gifts for Cats

Be sure not to put the Stix into your cat’s stocking too soon—they might catch that catnip scent and rip the stocking off its hanger. The Kitty Kick Stix comes in a thin paper wrapper, and chances are your cat will be stimulated by the smell of catnip that they’ll rip the packaging open on their own.
