Rated 5 out of 5 by BellasDad skateboard!
At first my cat would not go near this thing. That was then. She now loves it....especially at 4am, when I awake to what sounds like someone skateboarding around my apt. That would be her smacking the ball around. She also loves scratching it as well as sitting on the cardboard area for long periods of time. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mommakitty very entertaining
I have 2 kittens and several adult cats. They all loved this turbo scratcher! Catnip is included and was a nice bonus. Not one can walk by and not stop to scratch & play for a while!!
Would like it to have rubber feet for wood/tile floors so it doesn't slide, but I used non-slip drawer liner to stop any sliding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MowMeow Love at first scratch
From the very first scratch, Mow knew what to do with this toy. It is a scratching surface and a controlled "soccer" ball track. She lies down and bats the ball first with one way, then the other. Round the circle the ball goes. Up jumps Mow batting her paw and hitting the ball around the circle, changing directions and hitting it again.
Every day, whenever she comes in from outside, she plays ball with herself, or with me and loves it. And, at the same time, she uses the scratching pad regularly, scratching the upholstery and carpets less, yet scratching the Bergan Turbo Scratcher Cat Toy more.
This toy just keeps on giving. Regular exercise and amusement are the name of this game, plus there are no parts that can shed or go missing. This toy is loved by all!

by EmmyLCH My kitties love it!
My friend's cats love this toy so I thought it was worth giving a shot but I was highly skeptical that my cats would be interested in it. As soon as I unwrapped it and put it on the floor my cats were all over it. They were scratching it and pawing the ball, I was shocked. The best part is that this toy gets my biggest and least active boy running around and playing. Out of nowhere he'll go charging towards the turbo scratcher, push the ball around, scratch the middle, throw himself down on it and then dash away. Seeing him run around and be so energetic with this toy is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Okiegal2 A "Classic" cat energy work out!
I call this a classic because it neatly combines two thing cats adore: chasing and scratching. I have two 8 year olds who loved this toy when they were kitten to 2 years of age. Then they lost interest, so I donated my dear turbo scratcher to a local animal thrift store. But, a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to bring this back for them to "mix up" our regular play regime. They didn't want to love the Turbo . . .but they couldn't help themselves! I love sprinkling cat nip on the scratcher area to pique their interest. (And, of course, they are always sooooo interested when any new box from Chewey.com comes.) I like how portable the turbo is and how I can sit on the floor and move the ball around to draw my 8 year olds into a play session! My fave is hearing one of them playing with it when it is in another room. They may only play for a moment or two,but I know that they have had a moment of "stalk/chase" action that lets me know they are happily walking through their inside world finding ways to exercise their cat instincts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Th3Beard3dOn3 Just like advertised
I have 3 cats who have all played with this toy. It shipped with some catnip, so that was nice. My one complaint is that it doesn't have feet that grip so it keeps sliding across the floor.

My cats love this toy. They are using the scratching part of it, some of them are sleeping with it, and all of them play with it.
