Saving the toy for the next cats we get
We bought the original Kitty Tease back in the 1990s and our cat at the time (Troy) loved it. We kept it for all his life and he still played with it until he got pretty old. Our other cat, who was younger, took over the toy and she played with it until she passed away in 2017.
Way before this point when Troy was still a kitty, in 2000, I found that the line was getting shorter and shorter and had some difficulty buying just the string pack. (Websites were much simpler then, sometimes too simple.) I emailed the original inventor John Galkiewicz who emailed me back with instructions for buying a 10-pack of string packs and so I bought new ones then. At that time the Galkie Company was in Harrogate, Tennessee.
Somewhere in storage today, we’ve still got the Kitty Tease and the remaining string packs. In getting rid of old records today, when I found the email chain with Mr. Galkiewicz I was curious if the Kitty Tease was still in business and was happy to discover that your fishing pole has kept up the tradition.
The fishing pole is a quite safe toy in its design and gave both of my cats a lot of exercise and pleasure. Troy used to like playing with it on top of our bed because he was able to do all sorts of acrobatics without worrying about hurting himself. Our younger cat liked stalking it on the floor so we’d have to slightly move the denim thing on the end and watch her wiggle her behind as she pretended she was hunting in the wild.
Someday we’ll get cats again and we look forward to carrying on the tradition of the Kitty Tease (known now as the Kitty Kaster). I hope that you have continued success.
The best cat fishing pole toy made!
The best cat fishing pole toy made! I had these 20+ years ago and they last forever, are so well made and the cats (and dogs) love them. So happy to find this toy again after all of these years!
Thank you for continuing this great product
Thank you for continuing this great product. I lost mine in a divorce 8 years ago and have been missing it ever since! I finally found a new one, my cats will be so happy!
i purchased a toy back in the 80’s at a pet expo called catfishpole that was the exactly the same as this one. wooden handle, fiberglass pole, string and denim. i lost misplaced the original toy and it has taken this long for me to finally find this one. all the other cat toys available that have a feather or a fishing reel are junk compared to this one. they all have a metal hook that catches on the cat’s nails. not very safe. every cat i have ever had over the years has loved it. there hasn’t been a cat i had or came in contact with that didn’t love to play with this toy. even strays that didn’t allow any human contact would play and eventually allow me to pet them. that’s how i got a few pets. i highly recommend this toy.
Love this thing!
My friend heard about the problem I was having of not being able to exercise my indoor kitty enough. He was wearing me out. She remembered the old Kitty Tease that she owned years ago. She did some research and found y’all. I received my kitty Kaster last week and it is the most awesome cat toy I have ever seen in my entire life. My six month old tabby, Leo, cannot resist it! He pants and we have to give him breaks. This thing is amazing. Thank you!
