You may have heard of the Cat's Meow toy--it's been advertised on television like crazy. Generally, I don't go for this type of stuff (our cats prefer the boxes the toys come in!), but our friend Roberta had an extra new toy, and she sold it to us. I thought I would do a review of it and share with our fellow cat lovers.
Benny, of course, could not wait for me to open the packaging.
The toy is pretty simple to put together. You'll need 3 C batteries and a small Phillips screwdriver to open the battery compartment.
There's a little wand that fits easily into a section on the side of the toy.
Hurry up and put it together!
There's a little cap that lifts up on the top, and you set the piece of fabric on top, then put the cap back on. To start it press the button that's in the middle (on top).
Benny LOVED this toy. Here's a video of the first time I turned it on.
Next, I called Tucker into room. He took a few seconds to figure it out, but even he played with it a bit. Notice Benny zooming in and playing too.
Lastly, I put Sadie in the room. The poor girl was afraid of it. Benny frightened her even more by zooming into the room while it was on. I took a video, but it's not very exciting and it might embarrass the poor girl. She walks far around it and then hides under the futon.
It's easy to set up
The motion of the wand seems random
You could replace the fabric if you have a sewing machine
The C batteries are not a common size
Not all cats will like it
If the cat sits on it (Tucker), the wand can't move
Benny gives this toy a big two paws up. Tucker gives it a one paw up. Sadie, sadly, doesn't give it any paws up.
