Bergan Turbo Scratcher Cat Toy
Best cat toy we've bought
Typically our cats will like the packaging of a toy we've bought them more than the toy itself. This is not the case for the Bergan Turbo Scratcher. They LOVE this thing. We actually had to buy two because only having one was starting little arguments between our boys, Charlie and Gus. (We also have two medium sized dogs who show no interest in this toy) We also decided that since they liked it so much we would buy the replacements for them. We haven't had to use the replacements yet (and I do believe the cardboard part can be flipped over so you're really getting the most for your money). But this is something we will definitely continue to purchase (replacements for sure, possibly more actual scratchers to put around the house as well).

All three of my cats have their claws intact and they all enjoy this toy. They love the cardboard scratching, the ball track, and sometimes they enjoy just taking a nap on it. The only thing I don't like is the glue that is used to put the label on the cardboard. For each of these I have purchases I have had to use a tool to dig in and remove the last bit of glue left behind. It's not a big deal though because after you have bought the toy you can just buy refills for it. The refills do not have the same problem.
I highly recommend this to any cat lover! Even my mother's declawed cat plays with it!

HOURS OF ENTERTAINMENT AT A REASONABLE PRICE
MY CATS AND KITTENS JUST LOVE THIS TOY. EVEN MY ENGLISH BULLDOG TAKES A WHACK AT IT AND CANT DESTROY IT. THEY PLAY WITH IT FOR HOURS AND THE PADS LAST QUITE SOME TIME. WELL WORTH THE MONEY. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Absolutely a favorite!!
We have purchased several of these over the years and it is always the most-used toy in our home. We recently adopted a cat from a shelter and she is front declawed, but still loves to "knead" the scratcher in the center all the time. It's also where she takes many naps - for some reason she loves laying on the cardboard scratcher pad. When we first adopted her, she didn't know what the Turbo was about, so I sprinkled just a pinch of the catnip that came with the Turbo onto the scratcher pad and she has been playing with it ever since. Hats off to Bergan for creating a fantastic toy - and you never lose the ball!!

A Must-Have For Any Cat
The first time I purchased one of these was at an adoption event held at one of the local retailers. The cat's foster dad said it was by far the best cat toy ever invented and encouraged me to buy one. If not the best, it's pretty darn close. I've had five cats since purchasing my first "Turbo" more than ten years ago. They all used it in their own unique way. Most all loved batting the ball around, something they don't need human participation to do. Several used the scratching pad (one who was front de-clawed especially loved it) on a daily basis. One of my cats even found it the perfect place to curl up and take a nap. This is a great toy that is easy and economical to refurbish with a new center scratching pad and a periodic sprinkling of catnip.

all of our cats loved it! we had another ring already that had a top on it with holes around to push the ball. this is way better. If one is playing with it the others can watch and get excited too! I also didn't expect them to use the scratch pad in the middle and they ALL have! A+++

Best thing I've bought for my cat
My cat loves this thing immensely. She uses it for scratching, playing, and sleeping.

I purchased 2 of these for my 2 cats, and it has been a big hit from day 1. I put a twinkle ball as well so there are 2 balls in each, which makes it even more interesting - something like playing pool, they pounce the white one, then the white hits the other one and the cats are proud of themselves for making it twinkle. They can play with this toy for hours, which is not usual for my cats. They don't care for the scratcher though, but they love making the balls rolling around. After a couple months of use it is still very popular, both when we play together and for solo play sessions. Sometimes I put in some treats too, and they have to push the balls away and to get the treats out - lots of fun and hunting excitement :)
Just purchased the Bergan Turbo Track as well, to give the cats even more challenge.
