Pet toy manufacturer Jolly Pets recently acquired Kitty Kasas, a company that designs cat houses, scratching posts and recreation areas for felines.
Kitty Kasas, which secured an investment on ABC’s "Shark Tank" earlier this year, "aligns perfectly" with Jolly Pets’ enrichment products, company officials said.
"We were very impressed by Kitty Kasas’ quality product lines, as well as their focus on design and innovation," said Robert Miavitz, CEO at Jolly Pets, which is headquartered in Streetsboro, Ohio. "We are excited about the acquisition and look forward to supporting Kitty Kasas’ growth ambitions as well as entering the cat market. Nikki and Rusty’s expertise will be invaluable for future product development and their influence in the cat community cannot be overstated."
