Hide and Sneak by Dezi & Roo - The Purrfect Place to Play!

Hello, everyone. This is Lexy checking in, and I have a spectacular toy to tell you about. Today I bring you the Hide and Sneak by Dezi & Roo! Before I dive in, I wanted to tell you that Mother originally wanted to do the review for you all. I had to put my paw down because only a kitty (a real expert) can really tell you how fabulous this toy is.

Mother wanted to do the review because when she was at Jackson Galaxy’s Cat Camp in May she had the opportunity to chat with Dr. Lynn Bahr, The Cat Doc and founder of Dezi & Roo. When she saw their company name in the directory she just had to find them and chat because she had heard such wonderful things about their products.

It turns out Dr. Lynn has roots in NYC so they had lots to chat about (in addition to cats, of course. Right, Mother? I hope so.) Mother had a great time meeting Dr. Lynn and was very happy when we were offered a Hide and Sneak to review. (I’m thrilled! Mother did very well at this convention, that’s for sure.)

The Hide and Sneak by Dezi & Roo

Okay, on to my review! The Hide and Sneak is… wait for it… a paper tunnel! That’s right, kitties, I said a paper tunnel! And it’s glorious.

There are no bells and whistles here, only paper. It’s like a giant paper bag! Lola and I like simple toys, and as soon as a paper bag comes into the house, I’m on it. Literally. Give a paper bag loving kitty a tunnel made from a bag and we’ve reached nirvana.

The Hide and Sneak arrives folded flat in an accordion-like fashion. It’s super easy to set up. Just unfold it and voila! You’ve got a tunnel which will provide hours of fun.

There are openings on each end (which are reinforced with cardboard) which allow for great games of tag.

I love stalking toys from inside!

I also love the crinkly sound. It’s also fun to squish!

Dr. Lynn calls this the “Hide and Sneak Crush”.  No, it wasn’t ruined.

All Mother had to do was fluff it back up and we were back in business. Another nice feature is that it provides a nice, quiet, cozy resting place. Especially right in the middle where it’s the darkest and hardest for humans (and pesky little feline sisters) to find you.

Here's a little video of me enjoying the Hide and Sneak. 





The Hide and Sneak measures approximately 12" x 12" x 35" when fully expanded, and is made of entirely of biodegradable paper and cardboard material. And it’s made right here in the good old U.S.A. Paws up for that!

Who is Dezi  & Roo? 

Dezi & Roo was founded and created by veterinarian Dr. Lynn Bahr to improve and enrich the lives of cats and their owners. “Recognizing that feline behavior problems often lead to abandonment, re-homing, relinquishment to shelters, and even the premature euthanasia of a healthy cat has lead to me find ways to strengthen the partnership between people and their pets.” Dezi & Roo offers products, tools, and training to successfully solve issues that cat parents encounter. I can’t forget to mention that Dr. Lynn named the company after her cats. Now that’s a smart human because she knows who the bosses really are.

We love everything about this company! We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; we here at Lola The Rescued Cat love a company that gives back. Dezi & Roo is no exception. A portion of the proceeds from every sale is donated to animal-related charities such as The Paw Project, Animal Medical Center of NY, and Elephant Sanctuary. Paws up for that, too! 


You can purchase a Hide and Sneak for your cat at Dezi & Roo for $10.99. I highly recommend the two pack for $19.99. It never hurts to have a spare, or even better, have one in multiple rooms.  While you’re there, check out all of the other fab cat products available. (I saw Mother eyeing some bowls that are purrfect for whisker fatigue.)

  8. We love that we can hide in there and jump out and scare the mom! What fun!

  9. "Does your cat like drinking from a fountain?" Mmm, maybe! But I know she'd enjoy a Hide and Seek Cat Toy!

    ReplyDelete
  10. That looks like a fun game. Odd question for the giveaway, but yes, most of mine do :)

  11. Your video was pawsome! You two are so cute. Love all the pics too. This looks like a fun toy.

    ReplyDelete
  12. This seems like it would be great for contagious kitties undergoing vet treatment- just toss when the danger is passed

    ReplyDelete
  13. Great review! And yes, it makes sense coming from a kitty rather than a human. :-) I've seen these around on social media and always wanted to try one out! I think at least a couple of my cats would like it (Sophie, perhaps Dexter, possibly Woodrow!).

    ReplyDelete
  14. We love paper and crinkly toys, especially ones that make a whole lot of noise when we jump on it! Looks like you're having fun playing hide and sneak!

    ReplyDelete
  15. yes, they like to climb into them and jump on them. they like to hide in them as well.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I wouldn't say bags, necessarily. We've never had a paper bag in the house. However, my cats both enjoy boxes! So, I know this would be right up their alley!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Bear used to love paper bags. I'd cut a hole in the bottom and stick stuff in there. He still loves packing paper - he'd probably be more likely to be the "Hide and Sneak Crush." This seems like the perfect toy for multi-cat households - how much fun to hide and pounce! We hope you got a turn, Lola.

  18. That looks like so much fun! Mudpie likes paper bags...sleeping on top of them, actually. She's so much like Angel Tara sometimes it scares me.

    ReplyDelete
  19. My cats LOVE bags!!!! They will play with all of ours

    ReplyDelete
  20. Several of our cats love boxes and bags, but none as much as our Arata. I bring groceries home and he's climbing into the bags even before I empty them! He'd especially love this!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great review! That is totally something my cats will love!

    ReplyDelete
  22. YES!!! I have two cats, and one of them is especially fond of all things paper-- especially boxes, newspapers, and paper grocery bags! He's currently resting on one, on the floor.
