Kevin Duck, founder of DuckyWorld Products and creator behind the award winning Yeowww! brand of catnip and catnip toys, he’s made some real changes to the catnip industry. He is a man of many lives and talents, from production manager for Pink Floyd to selling cars, Kevin is a been there-done that kind of guy. Some would consider him to be a career connoisseur.
His creativity and curiosity kept him on the hunt for work that really satisfied him, as an office job wasn’t going to work and he wanted to find something that people dream of and would be fun. Being a part of something creative like film got Kevin’s own creative juices flowing. The work really set him up for wanting to do something on his own. He started off in the pet industry by making disposable dog beds out of coffee bean sacks but became frustrated with the issues with making and shipping large, bulky items. He loved making things for animals and that lead him to catnip toys. In the past, he made his own cats toys and stuffed them with catnip, from that idea a company evolved, Duckyworld Products, Inc.
