I bought this toy a couple of months ago. My cat was not interested in it at all at first. I put her in front of it and I would push the ball around and around with my hand. As she was watching me, she started to put her paw on the ball and pushed it around just like I did. I swear she understood how to move the ball after watching me. And they say cats aren't as smart as dogs, LOL! Give your cats a few days and just keep showing them how it works. A satisfied mommie and cat!
This is a well constructed yet very simple toy. My guys not only play with this all by themselves but enjoy playing together with it. The scratch pad in the middle was a great idea! Even my old guy who has a bad leg loves this toy.He can't really chase after things any more and since the ball remains in the turbo wheel he can play without having to chase after it. He is really enjoying being part of the fun with his little sisters again and we are seeing improvement in his mobility!! Buy it!! You'll enjoy it as much as the cats do!
I've purchased more expensive cat toys, but for years now, this toy has been a beloved necessity for Syn Jyn and Indigo. They can get that ball flying around the track and have learned how to do it lying on their backs! This is an essential for any cat parent. The simple cardboard scratching surface is inexpensive to replace, and my kitties use it regularly....especially when "seeded" with some cat nip.
My kitty loves this toy! She plays with it often! She loves the sound of the ball on the track.
She loves that scratch surface.
My cat loves this toy. I sprinkled a tiny bit of the catnip (included) on the track/circle to introduce Russell to the toy, and played with him the first time. Now he plays by himself, and I often hear him playing with it at night. He's an old cat and is usually unimpressed with the toys I buy, but so happy I bought this one. Recommend it highly!
Maybe it's my kitten but everyone claims this is the world's best cat toy. However, my ragdoll cat used it for the first couple of days and never touched it anymore which is why I rated it as such. However, each cat is different maybe mines has a short attention span, or was sick of it quick. Either way I felt like I wasted money but that's how it works when buying something for kitty, you never know. It maybe a pleaser or a no go. This is not a pleaser and he HATES the cardboard in the middle I even put the catnip in the middle and he is still not attracted to this toy.
I ordered this because it was relatively cheap and looked like something my cats might play around with. I have two female cats. One is 12 and one is 8 months. I would expect the older female not to play with this toy, HOWEVER, she loves scratching her claws on the center. But save your money and just buy them a cheap cardboard scratching post. My other cat, the kitten, I thought would play with it. I would play for awhile to get her interested and at first she was, but now a week later and it's been ignored the entire time aside from them scratching their claws on it. If I were to recommend another product - please consider buying Catit Design Speed Circuit!!!!
I did buy this one and BOTH cats love it!! The ball moves easier on it's on and way better design in my opinion.
MY cats love these, saves on the furniture, keeps them busy and happy, I usually add a little catnip which they love. I have been buying these for many years, at least 15 years. highly recommend!!
My cats love it. I also sprinkle a little catnip on the scratch area and they go crazy. helps to encourage them to use it for scratching and not other areas of your house. This is heavy enough to stay in place, which I love.
WHEN I TOOK THIS OUT OF THE BOX AND PUSHED THE BALL AROUND THE TRACK A FEW TIMES ,MY CAT WAS HOOKED!SHE HAS PLAYED WITH IT EVERYDAY SINCE THEN,AND IT'S HILARIOUS TO WATCH AS SHE CONTORTS HER BODY, INTO ALL SORTS OF SHAPES AND WHILE ON HER BACK AS WELL, TO MANEUVER THE BALL AROUND THE TRACK!I AM VERY HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE AND I BELIEVE KITTY IS ALSO!
3 cats give this toy paws up,
The cat played with it for about 5 minutes and looked at me with an expression of ...yeah, cool... and has never touched it again. It is well built as i have stepped on it several times in the dark and it still works. I think I have more use out of it. Would also make a neat serving tray for beers or anything else that's drippy.
I have 4 cats they all love it and my parents and in laws each have 4 cats they all love it. I've never seen another toy that is that universally used. Generally someone will have no interest. The center scratchy portion and the ball are replaceable. It comes with a little bag of catnip, although it was tested pre catnip application and was still a hit.
My cat loves this toy and I love it because it keeps her entertained. She plays with it every day. It keeps her busy. Worth every penny.
This is a must have toy for cats! Even fat lazy ones who haven't played in years will play with it. More fit cats like it too.
All my cats love this toy and the scratcher is a plus. Great toy for a great price. A must have for cats.
Kitty's Christmas Present and he loves it! He is rather lazy and has spent hours chasing this ball around and around. The first night he popped the ball out which is not easy to do but replaced it and he hasn't popped out again. He will not use the center for scratching but has hours of fun playing with this everyday. At night we tuck under a chair in living room and he will reach under and pull it out himself which is really comical. This is his favorite toy and will buy again when this one wears out.
My 2 cats love the scratcher part of this toy, but they could really care less about the rolling ball around it. I can get them interested if I roll it, but when I walk away they immediately lose interest. Regardless, the scratching area is awesome, and they are using it all the time. Even my cat that is declawed loves it. I guess it feels good on her little soft feet. I would recommend this toy to anyone...hence the 5 star rating!
my cats go NUTS over this thing. and it's ungodly entertaining to watch! My only complaint, and this is pretty loose, is that the paper label's glue that attached it to the scratcher part stuck to the scratcher. I'm sure eventually my cats will scratch it off but so far it's just clumps of glue stuck to the cardboard.
