I and love and you cat food review

The only thing I can say is you were not my first test subject so no harm. However, I will say that I'm not an expert on the subject. My husband and I have owned all of the kitty foods for over 10 years now. My husband is a big foodie and has a lot of knowledge when it comes to nutrition and food. He has been eating a cat food for about 40 years now. If it works for him, it works for me and I stick to what we know best.

I was happy with all of the products you sent me but was particularly impressed with KONG. I did purchase the KONG for my cats (they were my first test subjects for kitty foods).

This is a simple product - you push a button and the kitty gets a squeaky toy. They can move away from it at their will - it's not a toy with a ball. It is the most expensive KONG toy I own. I have two cats so I only needed one. We have both cats for about 10 years now and have never had any issues with toys or even scratching on things.

The KONG has never squeaked or lost its shape and is easily cleaned when they get a bit too rough with it. I am very pleased with it.

The first few months were rough. The kitties are used to the cheaper toys that have a squeaker inside. This was just a new product. They would start by just trying to use it like they would use a new toy. They wouldn't want to play with it at all.

I slowly introduced the KONG to them. I started with about half the amount of time. If they didn't want to play with it in the first half hour, I put it back and had a few others at the house in the next half hour. I didn't see any improvement at all in the next 3 months. Finally, about 3 months after we started giving it to them, they started playing with it and loved it. Now they play for hours with it and are willing to share the toys with each other.

I am very pleased with the KONG. The squeaker lasts much longer and they aren't as rough with it. I am very confident that this product will last for many years.

What was the inspiration for this product?

My cats used to love to scratch and destroy everything. The KONG is the first time that I've found a product that has solved this problem.

What did you learn from user testing?

The kitties were pretty sure they didn't like the KONG at first. They would hide and try to avoid it, usually with some scratching. So, I slowly introduced it and had them play with it. I put it back if they didn't want to play for the next half hour. It took 3 months before they finally were willing to play with it.

We had to be very careful about what we gave them. We made sure to separate them so that they wouldn't be fighting over the KONG. I made sure that they both had toys that they could play with, but didn't have to share. They weren't allowed to be rough with the KONG, so we used our paws.

How do you plan to grow your business?

I am very excited about the KONG for many reasons. It has helped to keep my cats from destroying our house, which is good. However, the mn reason that I am so excited is that it has allowed my husband and I to keep our pets during the entire day and not have to pay for a boarding service.

What advice would you give someone starting a similar business?

I would encourage them to have all of their orders prepared before they begin. It will be a bit nerve-wracking at first, but with a little patience and research, it will go well. Make sure that you use all of the tools that you are given, as they will make the process much easier.
