Fresh out of a fairy tale (or should that be furry tail?), these gorgeous gingerbread toys will spice up your cat Christmas presents list! And they will add a little Holiday spirit for your kit, as they come stuffed with catnip. Made from claw-proof polyester, this pair of non-edible gingerbread pals are tough cookies when it comes to your cat’s playtime and their dangling arms and legs will certainly keep your frisky pet on their toes. While they may look super-cute, these gingerbread cat toys are actually designed for rough and tough play.  Although due to the catnip inside, you do need to limit the time your cat gets to spend with their new soft toy playmates.  And they are not quite suitable for younger kits under six months of age.
