Kitty Roo Sweatshirt Review
Sometimes an As Seen on TV product hits the scene and seems to gain as much scorn as it does accolades. It would appear that Kitty Roo Sweatshirt may qualify as such an item. This gray sweatshirt has a hoodie with cat ears and a “snuggle pouch” in which you can hold a small pet. The pom-pom drawstrings can also double as a cat toy.
As ridiculous as such a description may sound to the uninitiated, I can tell you that there are some pet owners out there that will absolutely love such an item.
Those who see the advertising and feel compelled to buy it probably won’t be disappointed, as it should look and perform exactly as shown. The biggest concern will be whether or not your pet actually likes being carried around in such a pouch. Perhaps the easiest way to find out would be to carry your pet in something that functions similarly, like a blanket or open bag. If your pet seems to enjoy being carried around in this manner, then Kitty Roo Sweatshirt will probably be a good fit for you and your pet.
Ironically, although I have a small dog and a cat, my cat is much less likely to enjoy being held in a pouch like this than my Chihuahua.
Kitty Roo Sweatshirt is marketed to females of all ages, but it seems best suited to girls and teens. I don’t think that non-cat owners will really “get” Kitty Roo Sweatshirt, but “crazy cat owners” will love this nonetheless.
There is a virtually identical item on Amazon called the Mewgaroo Pet Holder, although I’m not sure which one of these two products came first. The Mewgaroo variant has comments dating back to October 2015, which is only a few months after the Kitty Roo website was registered. The good news for those interested in Kitty Roo is that the Mewgaroo holds a rather solid rating among those who have purchased it.
