Love the idea and once my cats aren't scared of the noise I'm sure it will be a great toy

Agree with everyone else, the toy doesn't work as advertised. It doesnt roll around to chase it just kind of jiggles on the spot. My cat would like it if it actually moved.

Good toy, poor construction
It’s great, it’s just that the off switch doesn’t work! So every time I want to turn it off I have to unscrew the battery compartment…

Even with new batteries, the motor is too weak.
The motor inside the ball is very very weak. The ball itself is sturdy but the issue lies with the motor.

Bought for my cats for Xmas and it just makes loads of noise and doesn't move about very disappointed
Poor instructions, was difficult to work out how to get in to the battery compartment, which way up, how to turn on etc - having got there it's really noisy and my cats are scared of it. It moves for a bit then starts just rocking on the spot for ages not even moving the mouse, then moves a bit then just rocks - does the same on the hard floor not just carpet. Will probably be getting rid of or may untie the mouse and keep that as the cats like that bit!

Play chase for hours!
Excellent! This is now my cats favourite toy & he has dozens!
Think it actually tired him out!
Would highly recommend 👌

Noisy and erratic
My 2 kittens love mice so I thought they’d like this toy. I couldn’t be more wrong - it is so noisy and erratic that they are scared of it. They are not shrinking violets when it comes to playing either. The ball is quite heavy and when it lurches forward it makes them run away - not a good purchase at all.

My 10 and 8 month olds seemed a bit freaked out by it by it initially, but it got them to work together to investigate what the noisy intruder was all about it. But then they just watched it from a far.

I was looking forward to receiving this, but as yet, I cannot fathom out where or how to insert the battery. It is completely beyond me and I am not a stupid person. Very irritating,

This is such a waste of money. Got this for my cat and first of all the feather just tangles up so ends up trapped under the ball so the pet can’t get to it, and second it makes such a noise that whenever they get close to it it scares them off, and my cat normally isn’t bothered by noises like this, so don’t waste your money!

Even my confident boy hates it!
Read the reviews and bought this anyway as my cat is the cockiest, most confident cat I've ever met. He was super into this toy before I turned it on. On carpet it barely does anything, on hard floors it is SO. LOUD. He could only watch from afar and jump out of the way if it came towards him.
Bonus though is it never got stuck under the sofa like I expected it would, always managed to get out again.
Second bonus - now I've turned it off, cat is all over it. Confidence has resumed.
Scared my cats
This is an easy to assemble toy. The instructions regarding the battery were not clear. It said A4 so we ordered this battery type especially. Turns out it actuallly takes AA batteries.
The boys like it when the motor is off but it terrifyd them when turned on.

This toy lasted all of 5 minutes and no longer worked. A complete waste of money. Even for the 5 minutes it did work it was useless. The string with the mouse attached gets all tied up and the cats are no longer interested. Save your money buy something else

I bought this for my 2 young kittens but it only got played with for a short while as the mouse kept getting tangled and we had to keep picking it up and sorting it out. As mentioned below didn't work on carpet and was noisy on wooden floor. Had to take it apart in the end as couldn't stop it as it got stuck!! Kittens not interested in 'broken' toy with mouse attached.

Noisy.. Cats interested but also a little scared
I have two nervous chaps and they were a little scared of this. It's a bit noisy but it travels all over the place. Maybe would work better with a more confident kitty
