These are incredible!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I know these have been talked about on TCS before, but it looks like the last post was in 2007...

I just discovered Pawbreakers catnip balls, and OMG Max and Ferris are going BONKERS over them!

They played HARD for more than an hour when I first got them, then crashed just as hard for the afternoon. Now I hear Max upstairs knocking one into the walls and talking to it - he's having a complete blast!

Just thought I'd throw this out there to you folks, since they are bengal tested, approved and recommended.

I just ordered some. I've never heard of them before but they look like they'd be a big hit.
post #3 of 29
well, i have some... the girls are just not that into them.
haven't tried them, tho, since my resident catnipaholic arrive. i found them [still in the packaging!] when i got a new entertainment center. they were behind/under the old one.
will have to see if Chip's interested!

I wish I could get some for my kitties, but my dogs would confiscate them, chew them to pieces and it would probably involve a trip to the vets. I love having both cats and dogs but sometimes I really think my cats get cheated. I've tried to teach them to leave the cats toys alone, and they do with some. But I guess they don't recognize new ones as "cat toys".

I'll have to get some of those. Are they on-line only or available at bigger chain stores as well?
post #6 of 29
My cats would love them.
Do you know any pet stores that have them?
Theyeach have their favorite ball.

Well, I have to wait till pay-day, but marked the website on my favorites!! Did you read towards the bottom that the employees at DiamondV are healthier from working there and being exposed to the pet nutritional products

If you order them from that site (they are the manufacturer) they ship free - I bought the 8 pack, is less expensive than buying them individually.

I don't recall seeing them in pet stores, then again, I haven't set foot in a pet store in months and months.

Ginger loved hers, too, but she just wanted to lick and lick and lick and lick and lick it.

Ferris rolled around on his, got all protective, Bonnie isn't quite old enough for nip yet so she just thought it was a cool ball, but would have been more interesting with a bell in it.

Penny enjoyed trying to steal Ferris' out from under him several times. She's quite mischievous, she is. Then later she came into my room when I was watching TV and demanded - and I mean DEMANDED a scritching session.

I guess pawbreakers get her in the mood for being loved on.

They even ship to Canada....free shipping on some of em.

I just ordered a 4pk, 2 Pawbreakers and 2 Pawbreaker Plus.

GingersMom: did u get the original or plus or both? I'm trying to figure out the difference.

Wow, imagine getting the $150 tiger/big cat sized one for our house pussycats! It might stop Stumpy from MOWing around the house at 5am...

Cleo is always losing balls under the sofa.

If minimum order is the 8 pack, why not just give an 8 pack price? It really annoys me when businesses do that!

I'll probably be getting some of those! Maybe it will help Whisky get some more exercise!

I got both, and it looks like the Plus version simply has some added kitty vitamin nutrients. They look and smell the same to me.

Because you are getting 8 single packages at a discounted price, PLUS you get free shipping. What's irritating about that?

You can order individual ones through thecatconnection or petfooddirect.com for more than $3 each, not including shipping. I think that ordering them in bulk, when I KNOW they'll get consumed, and I am going to save money overall, is the smartest way to go.

Yes, but then it would sound like a bowling ball is slamming into the furniture all night.

Ahhh, okies. Thx.

I understand that you can buy them individually.

If they are selling an 8pack, give the 8pack price, not the individual price of each of the 8 balls. THAT is what is irritating!

My cats love them, but I had to put them away when we got our last dog Lola. She's finally learning to leave the cat toys alone so I might try again. I bought a case of them when I first heard of them and I have about 3 left.

Pawbreakers won't hurt the dogs. They are like compressed catnip and dissolve when they get wet.

Riley had one a long time ago that I bought at a cat show. He seemed to like it, but mostly because it would roll really fast on the wood floors

I imagine its still around somewhere under the furniture.

Ah, I gotcha. See, I'd rather have the individual price so I can see what I'm saving by buying in a larger quantity. But that's just me.

I wonder about these - do they stain carpet when they get rolled around? I know my boys would lick them like crazy and then roll the wet balls, and most of my apartment is carpeted! I went to order them a couple but if they stain the carpet I’ll have to say no!

Yeah, but it would be hard to lose them under furniture or appliances.

No more than regular catnip would - which is to say, none that I have seen.

There is no color added, it is simply highly compressed catnip.
post #24 of 29
oh my gosh!! Those look so cool! That humongous 12 lb one

I have a couple that really enjoy some 'nip I think I will order the 8 pk too, although realistically I should order the 16 pack
post #25 of 29
I ordered the 4 pack. Thanks for the recommendation

I have 3 cats, and if each had a ball, how long would these last if they used them daily? I

guess it would be more of a treat then a play toy in the long run. Luckily they all love string and the fishing pole toys :P

I think it depends - I now have several of the 8 I bought jammed under the couch. I guess that's half the fun - they jam them under the couch, I get them out, repeat, repeat.

I am well trained, huh?

Well, our pawbreakers arrived today! I haven't even given them the actual pawbreakers yet because one of them is busy with the shipping box over his head and the other is chasing around the crumpled up invoice [both of which smell like catnip]. I'm sure they'll be thrilled when they see that wasn't all their is.
