  1. Thank you Ingrid, for featuring Dezi & Roo! I have made several purchases from them, and my cats love their Pop-n-Purr toys, along with the Hide and Sneak Tunnel, Cuttlefish, Squid and Buzzer wand attachments, Wiggly Ball variety pack and the Silvervine. My cats play with all of these toys and I highly recommend them to your readers.

    I love to support small businesses, like the ones you have featured today, and I will be buying items from many of these companies soon.
