Even my cats are irritated by the noise. A couple of them are scared of it. It'd be great if it were silent...
The line is a bit too short and the mouse is too heavy. I added a shiny string with the bow made from a noisy sweet's wrapper to the end of the line and now it is a cat's favorite toy.
Driving us mad!
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...
Feathers are a waste of time!
If it's a mouse why has it got feathers, and if it's got feathers why aren't they fixed on better? My cat destroyed them within the first day but otherwise likes playing with the toy and the squeak is quiet and so bearable even for human ears!
One of the few toys Mog will play with
After arriving, sadly found that it made no noise (quite realistic for a dead mouse). So I (not the cat) played with it anyway, and the feathers came off pretty soon. I decided at this point that I had nothing to lose, so cut it open. There was a faulty contact, which I fixed, and now it squeaks nicely, and Mog goes beserk! So if you're willing to cut it open and stitch it closed again, the batteries can be replaced.
