New OurPets® Catty Whack® Wins "Best New Cat Product" at SuperZoo, a Pet Industry Trade Show

The Hide & Seek Toy Where Instinct Meets Play!™

FAIRPORT HARBOR, OH--(Marketwired - August 19, 2015) - The OurPet's Company (OTCQX: OPCO), a leading proprietary pet supply company, recently received the New Product Showcase Award for its Catty Whack® at the pet supply industry trade show, SuperZoo. Pet industry retailers in attendance at SuperZoo voted for the OurPets Catty Whack as "Best New Cat Product" from the New Product Showcase. Select exhibitors were rewarded for their innovative efforts through the 2015 awards.

"The Catty Whack allows for pet parents to nurture their cats' natural instincts and combine interactive play with independent play so your cat never feels alone," said Gabriella DeSantis, Vice President of Marketing.

The Catty Whack is an unpredictable game of hide & seek designed for cats of all ages. Cats love the electronic RealMouse® sound and the erratic movement of the feather keeps your cat guessing as it darts in and out at random. On the top of the Catty Whack there is a carpeted scratching area where cats can groom their claws on a texture that they find satisfying. The bottom of the toy has non-skid rubber feet, which keeps the toy from sliding. There is also an auto-shut off feature and a replacement feather prey wand is included. The Catty Whack requires 4 "C" batteries.

The toy will be available to the pet specialty market in October.
