Hello future fledglings!
What is that? You want to know some of the fab places to get a duckie? Allow me to assist! I shall give you information on my recommendation and some options.
I want you to get your duckie where u feel most comfortable! There is no requirement to where you get your duckie or what type of duckie you have. The brand I recommend (KONG) offers both doggie and kitty duckies. My recommendation comes from personal use of the brand. The Dr. Noys stuffed animals with refills are the only ones that have never ripped for me or needed a limb sewn back on! Yet, they are very soft and machine washable! Also, as you read about the USA options you will notice a company Cattoys.com and Dogtoys.com. They have agreed to donate toys based on sales to an animal shelter. I am simply trying to have some good come from all the purchases.
FYI: @boriskitty, @PimpTheCat and @RosieandCheeto have also had their KONG Dr. Noys Duckie for years and they can attest to the duckie! The duckie comes with 2 catnip refill packs. You can purchase a 6 pack of catnip refills for the duckie, and other Dr. Noys stuffed toys.
The KONG Dr. Noys dog duck has x-small duckie (looks like cat toy 3") and (I think) 2 sizes in the "Platy" duck. I believe the sizes are 5" and 7". I have only found the 5" online. Each comes with 2 replaceable squeakers, and you can purchase a 6 pack of refill squeakers for the ducks and other Dr. Noys toys.
USA Cats and Dogs
You have may options.
Cattoys.com and Dogtoys.com have buttons on my blog. They sell the KONG Dr. Noys Cat Duckie and the Kong x-small Dog Duckie, and additional duckies for larger dogs. Cattoys/Dogtoys has agreed to donate 1 Kong Duckie to a shelter per every 25 KONG Dr. Noys duckies purchased through my blog, and you will receive a discount on everything you purchase - so long as u purchase it through this blog. Look at the button to the left to see the current % off your purchase. There are many other online stores that sell it too. I got my duckie at a Petsmart store (they sell the dog Platy duck too). I suggest if you are going to go to a store, that you call ahead to ensure it is in stock.
I understand that in the UK and through many parts of Europe it is harder to find pet stores, compared to the USA. I am going to list 2 online stores that I found and have heard others recommend from their own usage.
- Amazing Animal Co. - the Cat Toy
- Amazing Animal Co. - the Dog Toy x-small
- Amazing Animal Co. - the Dog Platy Duck
- Amazing Animal Co. sells the refills
- Doggie Solutions Co. - the Cat Toy
- Doggie Solutions Co. - the Dog Toy x-small
- Doggie Solutions Co. - the Dog Platy Duck
- Doggie Solutions Co. sells the refills
- Many times the Cat Toy will be listed under: KONG duckie, KONG Dr. Noys duckie, and Dr. Noys duckie. I have seen the dog toys listed at times as KONG duck.
- Many times the Dog Tog will be listed under: KONG,KONG Dr. Noys, Dr. Noys - and the x-small is called duckie or duck and the larger is called Platy duck.
