My lazy cat loves this toy. Worth every penny to get him on the move. Buy decent batteries and they last a long, long time in this toy. Really engages him for quite a long time and gets him jumping around for much needed exercise.
Apache is a very finicky cat & has no interest in most toys, but we got this about 3 years ago & it has been fantastic! She LOVES it & plays with it daily, for hours at a time. We have almost as much fun watching her hunt and try to catch the red dot as she does. It's not quiet, but if we need quiet we just go to another room while she's playing. This has made our cat happy, which has made us happy, and better still is that she isn't bringing in so many voles and field mice now. 😃
Both my cats like this laser, but my Birman girl demands I put it on in a very loud voice. She gets upset when it stops and shouts at me to put it back on. Both love to chase the light. Great fun for them...not so much for me cos of my impatient Nikita!
This toy keeps the cats occupied and enables you to get on with housework. Two of our older female cats go quite scatty and our youngest (6mths) enjoys watching them and also playing. The only negative point is the direction of the mirror means you have to have it on very low height or aim the laser at the ceiling.
This is a good product and fun for my cat but the side effects not so much. I've had to stop using it because now every flick of light from a phone, reflecting water, my laptop or a mirror sends him insane. My curtains get attached daily when anything reflects on it. So in short, it was fun at first but I think my cat thinks Aliens are coming to get him :-) Some serious long term paranoia has set in. I probably wouldn't of bought it if I had known it would do this.
While my cat(s) do like this toy, they lose interest after a few minutes because it is too random and sometimes too quick and they cannot follow it. It will shoot in areas that they cannot see and when they lose track of it, they stop playing.
I bought this laser cat toy for my cat to shed a few pounds. She is a very energetic cat, but by being indoors and in a small house, she doesn't get much exercise. I put this automatic laser cat toy (which looks like a modern robot- like a roomba!), I leave the room and I can hear her running round! I am so pleased that she is getting exercise and I hope this helps her to lose weight!
i brought this at Christmas and it is the best investment ever.
I have 2 British Shorthair indoor cats, this is a big breed and as they are indoor trying to keep them active is a mission.
They love this toy so much that they sit and meow at it and me to turn it on. It is best if you can put it on a shelf or unit. I love that it turns itself off as well.
I highly recommend it and have had no problems with it.
My cat (Heimdal) is very sad today because his 2nd favorite laser toy fell off the table and now won't move the laser around.
This toy is ok, he seemed to enjoy it while it worked. However, there are a few drawbacks to this one.
It's very fiddly, it only moves in 2 specific ranges. One is very far and one is too close. Placing this on the floor the circle only projects slightly in front of itself and adjusting the mirror puts it on the wall. So the solution is to put it on a table or windowsill.
This is a new set of challenges, you now have to find the exact spot of the -edge- of your table or sill. Otherwise the cat will only get to play half of the time.
Which is how mine found itself falling to the ground every time my laser loving cat tried to make the laser work. He discovered where the button was and started pushing his head into it. So of course, it makes it fall. Of course, anything will make something fall if it has to sit on the edge of a table.
The first fall made the mirror no longer stay in position, so we had to stuff a piece of paper in the slot to keep it positioned (only one position makes the laser stay on the ground) and that was literally on day two of owning this toy.
We've had this toy for 2 months and now it will only work in manual mode. And this is slightly unwieldy to use it that way.
So if you have a very curious cat who likes to investigate things (i.e. knock things off of tables sometimes) don't expect this to last very long. Also, when it falls on the ground all 4 batteries pop out. The cats found that amusing.
Otherwise, he really loved it and often would ask to play with it.
Fabulous!!! My delivery has just arrived and couldn't wait to set up the FroliCat Bolt Laser Cat Toy... My youngest, 2yr old cat is having a wonderful time chasing the red dot... and giving me some peace to work!! Best toy ever!!!
My two critters have very low boredom thresholds but this toy gets them going every time! One cautionary note: this toy is not silent & the noise eventually attracted the attention of one of my cats! It was up where she couldn't reach it - best leave it out of reach is my advice!
My cat has always loved laser pointers but sometimes I'm too tired to stand waving it about for him for hours on end.
This toy randomly whizzes about a laser for quite a while, before it switches itself off (at which point my cat, Percy, meows and I switch it back on again!) It is random enough to keep him interested, and bright enough for him to see. It is a brilliant toy and I would recommend it to anyone with an easily bored cat.
My cats love this, one sits and watches the other go mad chasing the laser around. I feel like the timer goes on a little too long, sometimes they are falling asleep and the beam is still whizzing around them!
Overall a good buy. It is noisy & the base can draw more attention than the beam sometimes but when the beam has her attention it works brilliantly. We already knew she was a laser fan & have frequently tired our arms out keeping her entertained...this hands-free alternative does a way better job than us!
My cat loves following this lazer, but still prefers when I use the hand held function. I find on automatic the dot tracks quite slow, then suddenly jumps to a different location and she loses it briefly. She prefers when i move the dot in a smooth but fast motion and will run around after it, less so when its on the automatic function. In principle its a good idea and I don't regret the purchase, but I will be on the look out for a future replacement which is quieter and tracks in a smoother manner.
