Probably attractive for kittens
on 2 November 2010
This cat toy can be put together into either a circle or an S-shape (end caps are supplied for the S-shape) and features a ball that runs along a covered track. The cat or kitten is supposed to play by batting the ball through holes cut into the top of the circuit, which are designed to be large enough to provide access to the ball but small enough to stop the ball coming out. We purchased one pack but the toy is designed so that you can buy multiple packs to increase the size of the circuit (but it is probably worth getting just one to start with to test whether it holds any interest for your cat or kitten).
All of our cats had a look at the toy once it had been put together but the youngest and oldest (11 and 3) did not even try to play with it and have just ignored it. The middle cat (9) was interested enough to try batting the ball but appeared to find the holes a little too small for her liking and, after only a brief go, has joined the others by giving it a wide berth.
Whilst our cats were not interested, I suspect kittens would find it of much greater interest, particularly as the access points would be more accessible to smaller paws.
