---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

---"I can't believe how your company understands cats so well"

Burning Calories While Exercising Your Cat

Vigorous exercise with cats is not only possible but fun!

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Actively playing with your cat is not just good for her, it is also a good substitute for a trip to the gym or a walk around the block.  Along with providing a great bonding experience and stress reduction, active play can burn a surprisingly large number of calories for both of you. 

We based these estimates on a 135 lb individual. A smaller person will burn fewer calories while a larger person will burn more calories.  In addition, the more active you are, the more stairs you climb the more calories you will burn. 

We've also provided comparisons to other activities which show the really great benefit of active play with your cat.  So the next time you see someone jogging with Rover, you can tell them that you and Fluffy have already done your exercise for the day.
