1 hour into test the end of the tail was ripped off. (See evidence here) Some stuffing was removed. A fin had to be removed from Emrys' mouth. In spite of all the damage, the squeeker remained intact for a week.

Lifespan:

One week.

A bit pricey but very durable. This is our third catfish toy and the two previous ones lasted a month. They kept their squeekers for a long time, the dogs can't seem to get past ripping the tail and fins off without a lot of effort and time.

Safety:
toy test rating

Needs supervision. Contains a squeeker. The squeeker contains a fairly big metal piece. Crackle sound comes from thick inner plastic lining. The first two toys no plastic came off with the canvas - but the third one I had to take a small piece from Emrys' mouth. I would not leave a BT unattended with this toy.

Boston Proof?

Good but - No.
