A real hit
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. 😃
Good fun for kitties
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!
15 minutes to tidy
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.
saved my sanity
when my cat isn't chasing a laser she shouts at me to play with the laser. this has honestly just about saved my sanity.
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.
A toy that actually sneds my cat crazy
From setting up this toy, my cat became a kitten again. Full of energy chasing it all over the house. He prefers us holding it. This is the first toy that my cat will play with. Well worth the money.
Good but a bit too random and quick
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.
AWESOME toy for exercise!
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!
Best toy ever
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.
Greatly loved while it lasted...
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.
Peace at last!!!!!
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!!!
best cat 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 loves it
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.
The best toy ever!
My indoor cat absolutely loves this!Great product and even when switched off, he taps it as he wants to play with it more.Not noisy as previous reviews may suggest.
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!
Good lazer beam, slow tracking, quite noisy
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.
I've lost my cat to a toy
I was expecting my cat to turn her nose up at this toy like she has so many others. I am ecstatic to say I was wrong. The first day this arrived, Molly played with it for 13 hours with hardly a break. She loves being able to chase round and round the room like a nutter without having to nag her slave to break her wrist swishing a toy about.
What a good buy! I have four fat lazy Persians that need to be entertained and stimulated to play. This does the trick so effectively without killing my finger holding down a laser pointer or swinging a toy around - they love it! The noise doesn't phase them but be sure to allow them to catch a toy afterwards so they have the satisfaction of not just hunting but catching their prey. I use a fishing rod toy afterwards. They love the toy, I love the product - satisfaction all around!
My cat just love it, and if she was the "boss" in my home it wouls be turn on 24/7 .....And when we had kitten´s they loved it too ...
Bought this toy for my two 7 month old kittens and I must say I think it is fantastic. My kittens loved the basic laser pointer but my fingers didn't so when I saw this automatic one I thought I would give it a try. People have said it is noisy and yes it is a bit but if you have the TV on or people are talking then you cannot hear it and even if the room is silent the best place for this toy is up on a shelf about 6 foot from the floor so that the beam moves around the entire floor and the kittens don't notice the noise or the unit then. Of course the kittens are going to be more interested in the unit if you just sit it on the floor in the middle of the room, it took me about 5 minutes to realise that was not the way to go. I cannot praise this toy high enough and I would urge everyone to buy one.
Yes, you've heard it all before - best thing since sliced bread etc. etc. Now I'm kicking myself for waiting as long to buy this (thinking the price is steep). It is SO well worth the money. At the moment, poor kitty spends all day inside not liking the cold and wet then is bored at night. I sit there trying to watch tv while pointing a hand held lazer and getting fed up quickly but feeling infinitely guilty when she's sat staring into space waiting for something to come along and play with. The FroliCat Bolt keeps her going for hours. If you want abit of extra action, it's great doing it manually! Also great to leave on when off out walking the dogs as you know it switches off after 15 minutes. Kitty is endlessly entertained and you don't even have to be in the house. Additionally brilliant because one of the dogs chases Kitty chasing the lazer thinking she's wanting her to play, too :-D Just need to refine your "Search" IWOOT so it comes up when you type 'cat' or 'Froli' or 'Bolt' or similar.
Perfect toy; our cats love to play with it! They want it every night..
