KONG’s Kitty Fuzz Bugs Give Cats Plenty of Catnip and Options in a 3-in-1 Toy

Kitty Fuzz Bug Dragonfly

GOLDEN, Colo. They may not fly, but they’ve got the cat world buzzing!  Kitty Fuzz Bugs from KONG are an adorable collection of cute and cuddly catnip filled bugs that cats everywhere can’t wait to get their paws on.  But unlike other catnip toys, these Kitty Fuzz Bugs have a secret – they’re actually three toys in one!

Kitty Fuzz Bugs are charming, brightly colored characters made from a super-soft plush material with a texture cats love, and a crinkly, rattling sound that together offer a total sensory experience, bringing out the hunting instincts in cats.  Each Fuzz Bug is a fun and enticing teaser toy consisting of a winged body and a springy tail with a ball at the end that invites kicking, flinging and chasing.  While that’s normally enough to ensure a toy becomes a cat’s favorite, the Kitty Fuzz Bugs take fun a step further – the tails separate from the bodies, turning one toy into two…an enticing ball on a stretchy tail and a cuddly catnip toy, perfect for downtime.

As if the soft, plush fabric and crinkly noise weren’t enough, KONG has filled Kitty Fuzz Bugs with a generous portion of KONG’s own Premium North American catnip, to make them even more enticing to cats.  This catnip is widely known as the Caviar of Catnip because it uses only the choicest and most potent parts of fresh catnip plants – the leaves and flowers, which is where the nepetalactone (the substance that attracts cats to the catnip) is the strongest.

Because cats like to chew on their toys almost as much as dogs do, colorful Kitty Fuzz Bugs were designed with playtime safety in mind.  They have richly embroidered details and faces with securely-anchored cotton braid “antennae” and are made without buttons or glued-on pieces that can become detached, making Kitty Fuzz Bugs safe for cats of all ages.

KONG’s Kitty Fuzz Bugs are available in bright Butterfly, pastel Firefly and black and yellow Bee.  They are approximately 11.5” long and 4.5” wide and have an MSRP of $5.99.  Kitty Fuzz Bugs are available online and at pet retailers nationwide.  For more information, contact the KONG Company at 303-216-2626 or visit
