Dee - KONG Kickeroo

"I ordered KONG Kickeroo catnip toy for my cat, which he absolutely goes mad for and, despite playing with it these last few months, it is such good quality that it is still intact. I’ve also ordered catnip mice and edible treats, delivery is always on time. My cat loves all these purchases and I am very happy with this company, looking forward to using again, Dee"
