Rated 3 out of 5 by CatLady305 I am down the middle with this one.
I have a year old cat and a 9 year old cat and a few year old feral-turned pet. He doens't look twice, the kitten doesn't look twice, and the older cat just freaks out because i sprinkled some catnip on it.
It comes with a tiny baggie of catnip but no instructions on what to DO with it. There is no "holder" that I can see. It's just the cardboard center which the older cat goes crazy sniffing and scratching, and sitting on, after I sprinkle it with catnip.
For all 3 of my cats the ball may as well not exist. My kitten eyed it when I first swatted it, but then decided not to investigate.
This is also a bit loud, as it has nothing to keep it in place. It slides all over the tile floor - it's quite lightweight -- nothing to keep it sturdy. Little rubber gripper on the bottom or non skid pads would improve the design. With pets, we don't use rugs. Not sure that would do much good but would probably help.
I hope they would play with the ball but they only care about the catnip smell. I'm still glad we have it to give our older cat something else to scratch on, she is big on scratching.

The cat loves it and so do the dogs. The lights are motion activated which add to the stimuli. I don't let the dogs play with it however because they can remove the ball but they love to watch it. It keeps the cat busy and the family can play along as well.

My cat plays with this toy more than I have ever seen her play with any other toy I've bought her. If I had known she would like it so much, I would have bought it sooner.
I recommend this toy for cats of all ages.

This product is wonderful. We have 2 kitties and they both play with it all the time. They play together with this toy.
You want amusement from your kitties? This is the item to get.

Two of my three cats LOVE this product. My one cat, who was a feral, is now an indoor only cat. She will play with this for 15-20 minutes at a time. It is a really good workout for her. Having been a feral, she is used to a lot of exercise. She gets it with this toy.
My other cat plays with this, and my third cat does not play with this at all, but likes other cat toys.
As Meatloaf said: "so don't be sad, cause two out of three ain't bad!"

I bought this in addition to the arch attachment primarily hoping to help my three legged kitty scratch himself when I am not there to help him. All three of my cats seem to love this scratcher toy and play with it frequently. I would recommend this to any cat pet parent
