Feline Friday: Rosie Meets #Sockitty

Since we have been so focused on the #houndsandholidays giveaway, it seemed only fair that Rosie should have a giveaway of her own. Actually, she demanded it and even threatened legal action, but that's a story for another time.

Rosie reviews her new Sockitty

Sockitty® and Go Cat Toys
A few weeks ago I discovered Sockitty®, a super cool, one-of-a-kind toy by Go Cat Toys. Is it a friend, foe or traveling feline funhouse - cats can lick it, kick it, tease it or squeeze it. It jingles and jangles, crackles and crunches and even throws punches (not really).

Each Sockitty® is individually hand-crafted in the USA by the cat enthusiasts at Go Cat Toys. They are extremely durable and made to stand up to natural feline behavior - kind of like a plushy cat scratcher. Although they vary slightly, the average size body is 19 inches long by 4 inches wide, perfect for playtime and nap time.

Leah, the founder of Go Cat Toys, is an old rescue friend of mine. We had lost touch, but ran into each other recently at a holiday bazaar for a local shelter. She started Go Cat Toys out of love for her own cats and Sockitty® is the result of creating fun toys for her feline family.

Sockitty® has received lots of praise from movers and shakers in the feline world, winning Cat Fancy's 2014 Editor's Choice award, Modern Cat's Fave Find in 2015, and featured product in Hauspanther Gear Guide.

Rosie and Moo Shu Meet Sockitty®



As you can see, Rosie and Moo Shu LOVE their new Sockitty® both as a toy and as a pillow! Sockitty® is a perfect stocking stuffer for the special feline in your life. For ordering information, please visit Go Cat Toys


Rosie's Sockitty® and Shelter Donation Giveaway

Rosie is giving away one Sockitty® along with a few of her favorite treats! As part of this special prize package, she will also make a donation to the cat shelter or rescue of the winner's choice. One winner will be selected randomly. You have from now until Sunday at 11:59 p.m to enter by leaving a comment with the name of the shelter or rescue you would like to receive a donation.

What a superfun toy for Rosie!

Emma said...

Looks like fun, but wouldn't stand up to our cat bro Bert who eats toys like that. He is a cat monster!

Three Chatty Cats said...

That is the BEST video of Rosie playing. I love it and that toy looks awesome. I'm pretty sure that Sophie would go crazy with it! If we're selected, I'd like to nominate TNR of Warren.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

We should see more of Rosie!! {sorry, biased}. I like PAWS (PAWS - Pet Animal Welfare Society of Norwalk, Connecticut). I don't live anywhere nearby - but they have so many awesome programs!

That is one enticing kitty - Rosie sure seems to be loving it.

Aww Rosie hugging Sockitty is the sweetest thing ever! :D Sockitties are so cute, I wanna become a cat and play with it! :D North Central Animal Shelter is where Happy comes from and there are many cats there. Thank you for having this great giveaway! <3

The Island Cats said...

We would love to kick a Sockitty! We would nominate the shelter the mom volunteers with, Wyandotte Animal Shelter.

Pawesome Cats said...

Sock kitty ~ what an awesome idea. And, good on Rosie for requesting a kitty giveaway! Thumbs up from us!

Ruth Epstein said...

What a wonderful idea, love it - enjoy Rosie

Hindy Pearson said...

Cute! Rosie sure is having a good time with it, and I love she's donating to a shelter. Very compassionate kittie!!

LP said...

Wowsers! Rosie and Moo Shu look so adorable with their Sockitty! It is obviously a hit for both of them:) We would donate to PAWS or RAPS a shelter here in Canada if that were possible. We hope everyone is well at your house and that you are all looking forward to the holidays :)

The Menagerie Mom said...

I don't know how I missed this! Thank you for bringing this to my attention, and I'm sorry for neglecting to see this earlier. That aside, the Sockitty is beyond adorable, and such a fantastic idea! It's no wonder you love it so much, Rosie! Thank you for giving us a chance to win this pawesome prize, and for being so generous as to give a donation as well!

meowmeowmans said...

OMC, that does look like a lot of fun. Go, Rosie, go! :)

We'd choose PAWS of Norwalk, CT, if we were lucky enough to win.

Hugs!

Madi and Mom said...

MOL MOL MOL ROSIE SHOW THAT SOCK KITTY JUST WHO IS BOSS OF IT!!
I LOVE THE AERIAL PHOTO
HUGS MADI YOUR BFFF

Marg said...

That sure looks like fun Rosie. I know a bunch of kitties here that would love to have a sock kitty. We would like a donation made to Tabby's Place. They do so much good work.

angelswhisper2011 said...

That truly is some creaking sock, Rosie...MOL :D Very cute! We're from the Netherlands and I don't know if sockitty likes to fly that far, but if we have a chance to win, you can donate to any shelter in your environment. Good Luck to all :) Pawkisses for a Loving Day :) <3

Marie Symeou said...

It looks fun! We're from England, so maybe we can't enter. But if we can, we'd love to.

Purrs xx

pilch92 15andmeowing said...

That is a great giveaway. Rosie is a cutie. We would love to win for PAWS in CT.

Jana Rade said...

HAHA, so cute!

Erin the Cat said...

This is the best use of a sock that I have ever seen, though I do not recommend using my peeps socks, that just would not be safe for any kitty. Mouses! As I'm in England, if eligable, I would love to nominate The Woodside Animal Centre in Leicester, if that is not possible then a Rescue of your choice. purrs ERin

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

That would be a super kicker for Minko who loves to do things like that. Pipo is more reserved, but maybe he too would go nutzo with one of those. We would donate to Froggy's Pond in Battle Creek, MI. Its a vet run shelter for FIV and FLV positive kitties and others who are considered not adoptable. This pawsome vet is our vet, too.

Minko is a string chewer, so that would have to be adjusted:)

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Could those sockitties be any cuter??? Thank you so much for the fun giveaway, Rosie!

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Oh, and we would choose Franklin County Animal Rescue in St. Albans, VT. Thank you!

Tonya Wilhelm said...

OMG That is just the cutiest sock kitty ever! I need, I need! It looks like Rosie is having a blast. Thanks for sharing.

Cathy Armato said...

What a great cat toy, your video is awesome. I love the sounds that it makes and you can see just how much your cat loves this toy!

Amber Ketchum said...

What a great toy! Our first cat loved one of our dog's toys that was shaped similar to those, so I can see where these would be super fun for cats. My current cat is waaaaay too lazy to play with anything or anyone for very long lol! Thanks for sharing this! I'll need to look into getting one for Trout anyway :)

FidoseofReality said...

That looks like so much fun. This cat is a riot. I would be down on the floor playing, too.

Sweet Purrfections said...

I can see Truffle having a fit with this toy. We like to give to Pawmetto Lifeline in Columbia, SC.

Dolly theDoxie said...

That's a perfect cat toy! According to mom at least. Not sure if Rhette would like it or not but it's great idea your friend came up with. We'd love to see Ruby and you again! Love Dolly

Dash Kitten said...

Can we nominate our fave NYC rescue Place for Cats a foster network. They would LOVE these fabulous toys!!

Jamie Williams said...

Best Friends Animal Society is who Id like to nominate.thanks.

Beth Patterson said...

That is a really cute sock kitty.

Denise Gruzensky said...

This looks like every cats DREAM toy! Hopefully now your feline family members will hold off on legal action as they have a special giveaway of their own. MOL!

Sandra said...

Princely Paws said...

Sadie and Co. said...

Those are adorable! What a great idea. And, obviously quite a hit!

Jan K said...

Wow, they seriously love that! I'd love to see Samantha be that enthusiastic about any toy!
We would choose a local cat shelter - Sullivan County Humane Society in Claremont, NH.
What a sweet giveaway, thanks, Rosie!

FiveSibesMom said...

Oh, Sockitty is so cute! What a great idea! I wonder if our adopted feral kitty Binx would love one?!

Robin said...

OMC! These look like a ton of fun. I love the video. Your cats are so cute playing with these soc kitties. My cats love socks. I may have to look into this for them!

Kimberly Freeman said...

Jessica Shipman said...

Go Cat Toys said...

Hi Emma, We hear this quite often...folks insisting that their cat will tear it up. The toys are actually a unique blend of textile completely durable to withstand all kinds of cat abuse. Sockitty® will get well-loved looking, however, it is very unlikely to rip open and will remain in-tact for the long-haul (5-10 years.)
