I have now passed on and other than replacement
string pack orders through my son Adam, there is no one left here to take
over or fill orders.
If you need replacement string packs Adam can take care of those orders because I left him lots of them,
that information is below.
(Cat toy/Exerciser "Trims The Fat From Your Overweight Cat")
I'm so sure your cat will like the Kitty Tease that I offer you a

of it's major parts.

In order for my son Adam (9 at this
writing) to see just why I enjoy making and selling the Kitty Tease so much
I have turned over the little "string pack" operation to him. He now
gladly fills those orders when they come in and is more
than happy with the spending money it provides him. When he gets good
and use to the "easy" side of the string pack operation I'll start having
him make them up too so he can see just what it takes to get to the "easy"
part. That should give him a good firm business foundation for later
years. So if you just need string packs please
send your order directly to him at the address provided below.
The original replacement string packs (Line & Cloth) for the Kitty Tease are still just $1.00 each. I have turned the string pack division back over to my son Adam, a young man now, and he can put up to 10 string packs into a business size envelope (#10, 9-1/2") with $.97 cents of postage. Depending on the mood of the Post Office people, you may or may not get charged a little more for additional postage at your end. For the little 6-1/2" personal envelopes he can get 6 string packs in with about 60 cents in postage. If you don't include the envelope, Adam will subtract Two Dollars from the order to do one up for you and put on the postage. Adam asks that you only use envelopes with good tasting glue since he has to lick them.
Please make your string pack order and check out to:

Voted, "Best Cat Toy in the Last 30 Years" by the readers of CAT FANCY magazine
In 1983, John Galkiewicz's neighbors
suggested that he manufacture and sell that cat toy he had invented and was
always using on his cats. John applied for a patent on the toy and
started taking the buggy whip like cat toy to East coast cat shows.
His "Kitty Tease" soon became
a hit on the show circuit. The cat shows soon led to sales to pet shops
which then led to the beginning of a small mail order operation as well.
When asked why his Kitty Tease worked so well on virtually all cats his response was, "Because it was originally designed for a cat and not someone's purse or wallet. You control all the action, cats can't kill it and it just keeps getting away." John then remember his father's words when John told him he was going to go into business selling his cat toy, "Don't make a cheap product; make a product you will always be proud of and give it a warranty that reflects that pride." John did just that and the "Full Year" warranty on each and every Kitty Tease rod, handle, and tip is still unmatched in the industry today. Each Kitty Tease also comes with its own informative and quite extensive "Owners' Guide", something you just don't expect with a cat toy but then again this isn't your regular cat toy.
When CAT FANCY magazine had their 30th Anniversary they held a contest where their readers could vote for the best cat products, by category. Though no single product was the sole winner in any one category, when the balloting was over only 2 cat toys made it to "First Place" and there was the Kitty Tease, voted "Best Cat Toy In The Last 30 Years."
My "Blue Point" Apple head Siamese
The very first Kitty Tease kitty
For Kitty Tease
There Use To Be Three Sizes
of Kitty Tease
to Choose From.
Kitty Tease My most popular model by far. It is 38" long and was designed so that you could play with your cat from the comfort of your favorite chair while watching TV. It is for full room use and will produce all the jumps, spins and flips that made the Kitty Tease famous.
(No Longer Available)
Kitty Tease Jr. The Kitty Tease Jr. is just 18" long and was designed for kitten use and for lap play with older cats. The Jr. model is also popular with cat show people for playing with their cats while in their cages.
(No Longer Available)
Kitty Tease Deluxe The Kitty Tease Deluxe is the 2 piece Traveler Version of the regular size Kitty Tease. It is the same length (38") as the regular size Kitty Tease but incorporates a high quality ferrule that allows it to come apart for ease of storage in virtually any suitcase. This is the size I highly recommend for overseas shipments. (See Foreign Orders)

Probably the most exciting part of running a mail order business is getting to read all the nice letters that people take the time to write to me. Most bring a big smile to me but some bring a little sadness when they share the loss of a life's companion. For a lot of people out there, their pet carries official "People Status". I would like to share one of these special letters with you. It comes from Mary Louise Brennan in Mahanoy City, PA who had just lost "Melody", a very very special cat that brought much meaning and joy into her life. I now share this with you in memory of Mrs. Brennan's "Melody".
The Rainbow Bridge
(Dedicated to all those who have lost their best friend, their pet)
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is call "The Rainbow Bridge" because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills, and valleys with lush green grass.I have truly been "blessed" by having been given the necessary "tools" in order to bring the Kitty Tease and my other inventions to market. Since 1983 I have been self-employed and boy have I ever enjoyed it. How nice it is to look forward to Monday while so many others do not. How nice it is also to be here with my young son and be able to juggle my schedule to fit into his world of activities. How nice it is to work out of one's home and be able to wake up each morning knowing there is no set schedule to adhere to. Like I say, I have truly been blessed!
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are made young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.
There is only one thing missing, they are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up. The nose begins to twitch, the ears are up, and the eyes are suddenly starring, and suddenly this one runs from the group.
You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed and licked again and again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.
You then cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never ever again to be separated.
(August 9, 2004, Karen Spicer, of Tillamook, OR has kindly informed me that
the author of "Rainbow Bridge" is Paul Dahm who now resides on the Oregon Coast)
