---"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"

Sisal for Cats

Cat scratching posts are often wrapped in this appealing material

MetPet.com: rope for scratching postsSisal rope is commonly used to wrap cat scratching posts.  It provides a rough and natural appearance that appeals to many cats.  It has long, strong, rough fibers that are useful in catching and holding on to the tips of claws. 

The thick, medium-brown sisal rope is glued and/or tightly wrapped around a plastic or wooden post or plank.    Some companies offer posts that are wrapped in sisal fabric or a sisal mat that resembles a heavy burlap.  Sisal scratching structures can also be flat mats secured to planks or square boards with or without a vertical scratching post. 

Sisal rope is made from the leaves of the Agave Sisalana plant.  This sturdy shrub grows in arid climates around the world.  It has thick, rigid, spiked leaves that grow up to 6' long spiraling out of a central core.  Inside each leaf is a bundle of fibers that provide the leaf its rigid structure.  When the outside tissue is removed, the fibers are washed, dried and spun or twisted into yarn and rope.

Sisal fibers are long, strong and reasonably durable.  Sisal has any number of uses including as rugs, casual shoes, door mats, paper and any number of basic rope applications. 

This also means that if you get a nice sisal rug for your living room, your cat will appreciate it for the very large, horizontal scratching pad it is!
