Customer Reviews:

  • My child LOVES this toy!
    My 7 year old absolutely loves this toy. He won't go anywhere without it! It's really great for enforcing good behavior, such as staying quiet when guests are over, sitting in the corner on his bed when he's being ignored instead of scratching at the doors and breaking windows, and sharing his food instead of producing a blood-curdling scream when others come near. It's really made a difference, this little squirrel. It's changed our lives around for the better, and little Gunther's, too. I really recommend it for parents who have problematic children- ever since purchasing this, we haven't had any DCFS agents coming by or calls from the school guidance counselor. ...more info
  • Cat goes nuts for the squirrel!
    Admittedly, my cat will play with anything. She paid rapt attention when I was opening it and was attacking it and batting it around right away, trying to eviscerate the catnip from the squirrel's pouch with her hind legs. Great for a curious kitty; maybe not so exciting for an older and more dignified cat.
    Follow-up: January 2008: My cat still prefers this toy to any other, with loose catnip in the pouch. She has gotten the tail off one of her other rodent-like toys but not this one. It's really well made. I didn't buy her anything for Christmas because her newest thrill is playing paw hockey with a macadamia nut (in the shell) on the kitchen floor.
    February 2009: This is still my psycho kitty's favorite toy. She never gets tired of it. For Christmas I gave her some catnip in a lunch bag and watched her destroy it, but she hasn't torn the squirrel apart yet....more info
  • A dud
    When I introduced this toy to my cat he just glared back at me with a "you must be kidding" look and just strolled away, leaving me holding it like a fool. Later, I saw him biting it a few times but hasn't developed any further interest in it. It didn't cost much so no great loss. Just with all these positive reviews I had to write. I don't think catnip appeals to him....more info
  • Almost purr-fect cat toy.
    Our kitten loves her new squirrel toy. However, the catnip "tea-bags" that come with the item might not be the freshest. If you make your own insert the cat with be even more enthralled. ...more info
  • We Call Him Secret Squirrel
    I have two cats and they both love Secret Squirrel. He has a velcro tummy that you can open up and stuff full of catnip. He comes with two little catnip "tea bags" to stuff in him, but my cats prefer the loose leaf catnip inside him. That way if you give him a good rub between your hands the catnip is refreshed and smells new. They like to carry him all over the house and toss him in the air. It's definitely one of their favorite toys. They also enjoy the chipmonk version of the same toy....more info
  • This got Kitty's attention when no other toy would
    Fabulous toy. My cat loves it, and it's not just because of the catnip either. Whatever it is, it's great to watch her enjoy it so much. As a plus for kitty's 2-legged companions (Us), the catnip goes into a little velcro-sealed pouch on the underside, so it doesn't get it all over the place. Highly recommended. ...more info
  • When nothing else to do...
    I have a foster cat in the house, and she is well taken care of. I buy her a lot of toys, and this I thought was cute. When I got home with it, she could smell the catnip, and could hardly wait for me to get it out of its bag. She took it, shook it, dragged it out on the floor, and there it is, with all her other toys. When she is bored (which isn't often), she will go over to it, play with it a bit, bite down on it and shake it, then drop it. I had high hopes for this toy, as she seemed very pleased with it in the beginning. I think a cat that is less spoilt with toys may find this interesting.

    That being said, this kitty loved to fetch, and would rather do that....more info
  • Picky cats: caution
    I've struggled to find a toy that my picky cat enjoys. Currently, the only one that interests him is one of those spinning feather 'fishpole' toys. Based on the excellent reviews of this toy, I was hoping he would get into it. He didn't. The toy looks well-constructed as others have said, and I don't fault the toy for my cat not being interested. He's just picky. Hopefully we'll have better luck with the next one!...more info

  • Amazing kitty toy!
    My Dad found this toy and gave it to our kitties, six-month-old Gracie and six-year-old Zoe for Christmas. We knew that Gracie would play with it and she it lots of kangaroo kicks and kicking it around like a soccer ball. Then all of a sudden one night, Zoe, who rarely plays with any toys, suddenly picked up the squirrel in her mouth and started crying the most unusual meows.

    It has now become a daily and nightly ritual during which Zoe will pick up the squirrel in her mouth, meow while moving him, drop him and then meow some more. It is both adorable and hilarious and I never would have believed that a toy could affect her this way. I cannot recommend this little squirrel is so unique and has brought out a side of Zoe that is just priceless.

    Thanks Dad!...more info
  • Fun Toy
    We have two cats. They enjoyed this toy a lot...for about ten minutes. That's actually quite a lot for these cats. Just like most cats they have short attention spans. They definitely did not ignore it -- one of them tossed it up in the air a few times and the other one attacked it in a very playful manner! They do go back to this toy on occasion and play with it again. Generally it was a pretty good hit. As for quality of the product, it appears to be safe -- no loose parts and good construction. The pouch for the catnip appears to be secure (the cats have not opened it yet). It was shipped very quickly and came in excellent condition....more info
  • We luv this toy
    Our kitten Henry was really the first to notice "mr squirrel" even though we had the squirrel toy for a year before we had Henry, as well as several other Dr. Noys toys like this for cats. Henry carries Mr.S all over the house. The funny thing is he and our beagle boy play with it, its like a game as to who has the squirrel. Sadly the original Mr. S went to the great kitty toy heaven when after 5 months of this game the beagle finally figured out the right way to tear him open. But in true fashion we had a spare on hand as we were terrified something may happen to Mr. S and kill their game.
    This is a great product, tough, durable, and cute. We have also since bought "Nuts" the Mr Noys dog version of the squirrel that squeaks. And in real life the squirrel doesn't look quite so odd like in the Amazon pic, it doesn't look nearly as road kill-ey. :) ...more info
  • not necesarily for every cat
    I don't want to detract too much from what is obviously a quality cat toy. But its not "da bird"- a toy that seems to work with any cat. My cat seems to prefer bird-like toys and no amount of catnip or cuteness from this toy is going to change that fact.

    From an owner perspective I've seen my cat go for this toy more than the usual "dead animal" toy, and it seems like a durable toy, but its not a guarantee that your cat will like it....more info
  • Nice toy
    Good toy that the cats like to occasionally play with. I thought it would be larger, it's more like the size of a chipmunk than a squirrel. but I doubt that it matters to the cats....more info
  • Our cats (all 12 of them) gave it a "4 out of 5 paper bags" score
    We rescue cats and thus have become somewhat knowledgeable on cat toy preferences. Basically they are as diverse as humans, just don't respond well to advertisements and how much it costs, nor do they worry about what the cats next door have. Ours are the type who may turn their noses up at a $40 toy and play for hours with the paper bag it came in...hence the "5 paper bags" score. With regards to Dr. Noys Cat Squirrel all but 3 of our cats spent considerable time bitting, kicking, throwing, dragging and slobbering on this toy. Therefore they gave it 4 paper bags and since they do not believe in a perfect cat toy we figured that was worth 5 stars on Amazon...more info
  • Cat Toy - Cat Nip Squirrel
    Super Squirrel. The cats LOVE it. We find that poor Squirrel everywhere. Sometimes we put it in one of the tunnels and 2 of the cats go nuts diving into the tunnel and attacking the squirrel. It is one of the best toys I have seen. And the cats agree....more info
  • Kitty goes crazy over "Kill & Groom" Squirrel!
    This is our kitty's favorite stuffed toy. She loves it better than her catnip mice, better than her plastic jingly ball, better than her crinkly fish. It has a velcro closure on its tummy, where you can insert one (or both) of the catnip teabags it comes with. Kitty chomps down on the squirrel, trots around with it, and then tosses it up into the air and snares it with her front paws. She'll even fetch it if we throw it into the next room. The funniest thing is that, when she's done attacking it, she'll flop on the ground and serenely groom its fur and bushy tail with her tongue. So, we've decided to call it -- in the vein of Primp & Polish Barbie -- Kill & Groom Squirrel!...more info
  • Cat Toy
    My two, 3 month old kittens, absolutely love this toy. Whether it's getting cuddled or thrown up in the air, it get a lot of playing time. ...more info
  • There are catnip toys, and then there's Dr. Noys Cat Squirrel
    I could write a lot of frilly words, but suffice it to say that this toy has to be hidden in a cabinet with a latch. The cats go bonkers for this hideous little bundle of fluff, and I have ordered additional squirrels to avoid territorial fights over who gets to kill it next. I have actually seen the thing fly past my knees while I was sitting on a chair reading, and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when my semi-feral runt breaks its neck. Fun days. ...more info
  • LOVE IT !!!
    Our cat just LOVES this !!! This is the 2nd one we bought, cuz she lost the first one. We will always buy these for her. She throws them up in the air, flips it across the room, stalks it, rolls with it.... omG. It is hilarious watching her! We don't use the catsnip pouch in it hardly at all.... but there's SOMEthing about this toy she absolutely loves. Hopefully your cat will like it too....more info
