The best cat toy.....ever!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
To celebrate my girls' new found freedom from their e-collars, I decided to buy them a new toy. The girls were already excited about not having to wear the collars anymore but when they saw their new pressie, they went wild!

I got them a Panic Mouse - you can see a picture of one here http://www.petplanet.co.uk/shop_stor...use_p3451.html It is absolutely brilliant and it's been hilarious watching the girls play with it. I've never seen them do their "Meer Cat" thing so much

I'm glad they like it so much! What a nice present!!
I have heard a lot about it, everyone says it's a really good cat toy. Never seen a pic of it though! It looks great. Hey... my cats' b-day's are coming up really soon!!!

And congrats to your cats on being freeeeeee!!!

I'm glad your girls are enjoying it!

I thought of buying one once, but I know for a fact that Tibby would have it destroyed in an instance!

I bet Bella and Cinders are thoroughly enjoying their freedom again! Especially with such a fun new toy!

We need pictures in fur pics of them enjoying it

I thought about one of those but i didn't know if it would scare Rosie because they have a mouse that you whind up and it shoots across the floor and she runs a mile! Is it noisy?

That's hysterical. I don't know if it would keep the girls intrigued for hours or scare them to death!

It's funny - took me ages to work out what an e-collar is. In Australia, they're called buckets. Seriously. Not bucket collars, just buckets!!

I know what you mean. I was told by my vet that they were called buster collars and no one knew what I was talking about when I called them buster collars

Susan, have a look at the link in my first post to see what my one looks like. It doesn't have a mouse that you can wind up - my girls don't like them either. It's not noisy at all and if your girls like things like Fish on a Stick, it's great because the concept is the same except you don't have to wave the wand because it has a robotic arm. It also has variable speeds as well which is good if you want to introduce it slowly. My girls love Fish on a Stick so I figured they would like this too. They absolutely love it and even when I have turned it off, they still like to bat and pull at the mouse

I made a video of Cinders playing with it using my phone but need to figure out how to change it into a format that everyone can see

I bet that is SO cute watching them play with it!

I'll move this to Care & Grooming where we talk about toys and such.

"Meer Cat" is a perfect description.
Pictures please...

Oh well if they don't really make a noise i might get them one, because they do like the fishing toys and the cat dancer.

I watched the video at the panic mouse site. It looked really cool for cats!

I just want to be clear - it ISNT noisy? right? Smidge runs from anything that has noise involved.

Abby loves her Panic Mouse. The toy does make a noise as it swings around. Abby was a bit frightened, but when I slowed the control down, she was Ok with it, and LOVES it!

Like AbbysMom said, it does make a noise when the arm swings but it isn't loud IMO and it doesn't bother the girls at all. If you start it off slow and then gradually build up the speed, I think Smidge and Rosie will be ok. The trick is to start by showing them the wand with the mouse attached and play with that on its own. Then when they get used to it, attach the wand to the panic mouse and away you go

My girls go mad for anything like mouse or fish on a stick so I didn't have to introduce it slowly. I actually had trouble attaching the wand because they were already dragging at it as I was putting it together for them!

I'm glad they're enjoying it! I got one for Jamie, and he just sat and watched it, although he loves wand toys. Teufel had so much fun with it that I sent it back home with him and Kaylee.
