This toy is superb for a single cat household …
It is beautifully made, works perfectly each and every time. Our cat loves it- so do our 4 dogs, no one leaves it alone for a minute, it squeaks constantly sending each pet into paroxysms of joy, each one competing to see who will make us go crazy first. It now resides in the cupboard- we even tried leaving the plastic tab in (safely)so there is no noise but they still love it and the noise is replaced with loud barking and mews.
My cats love this toy. I prefer it being on a long plastic stic as I can launch it like a fishing rod and they go crazy. I also like that it makes as a noise as this adds to the excitement of the chase. Lastly it’s on elastic not string so bounces around easily.
Highly recommend and absolute bargain price for a quality toy.
The squeaky noise of this toy, annoying as it may be to human ears, has hit the right rodent pitch for cats as I've experienced something I can't recall in over 40 years of having cats i.e. a cat growling possessively over a toy it has 'caught'. Only ever seen growling over genuine prey. The cats absolutely love this.
This toy has a reasonably sturdy pole, an elastic cord, and a cute little plush mouse. The slightest movement causes it to make a shrill EE-EE-EE-EE-EE noise. You cannot turn this off.
My two cats love it - they get very excited by the squeaking and it's a definite improvement over silent toys. It is currently wrapped in a scrap of furry fabric and stuffed into the cat-toy-drawer. It goes off when I walk past.
Buy it if you hate peace, quiet, and the people you live with.
My cat loves this toy. Unfortunately, so does the dog! The poor cat has to play with a relatively boring toy while we train the dog to sit in the corner when we play. The cat is quite good at training the dog.
4 out of my 5 cats love this (this 5th considers himself too mature to particularly play with any toys). The 4 react to it more than catnip and gather around to try soon as it comes out for play. Once its worn out I'd most definitely buy another.
- Cat bloody loves it.
- Will play with it for absolutely ages, favourite toy.
- Squeaks every time you move it, so if you plan to 'hide it' when playtime is over (which I would recommend, for the cat's safety) you need to put it in a different room where the cat doesn't go and you're not going to accidentally knock it. Otherwise the cat WILL find it. And she WILL steal it.
- Feathers were gone after about 1-2 weeks.
- Squeaker is about to fall out after a month/ish
Received this toy this morning and wasn't expecting it to work from reading previous reviews. Oh how wrong I was! I pulled out the little battery tab and instantly it made a noise I can only describe as 'crickets on speed' and has not stopped since. It sounds a bit like a very, very fast alarm and it's not so quiet either. 9 hours later I've just about had enough and I wish the thing would stop working. I'm about to go bury it in the garden ;) on the upside, kitty loves it... And at least it worked, sort of...
