So far, my jungle beast is in love with his Senses series entertainment. I got him most of the components, except the food, water and treat portions. He is pretty picky about how he receives his treats and such...
Anyway, he was biting at the wrapped box on Christmas, some catnip had spilled from the container. So far he plays with the ball tracks most, so I'm going to use a different catnip or spray to entice the chewing more.
I was surprised at how much the cats like this...

I set this up and followed the directions (but I did sprinkle a bit of the supplied catnip over the plastic “scratchers” on the sides of the base.) Within just a few minutes the cats were rubbing all over it...especially the scratchers. I ordered a second unit the next day and put it in the other end of the house. Great item...I was surprised!

We have a few of the Catit elements and our cat, Marshall, loves playing with them. But unfortunately, this was a no-go. He usually rubs up against whatever we put by his play area, whether it’s a box or a brush, but for some reason he avoids this thing like the plague.
My Cats weren't interested
on Aug 15, 2020
I tried and tried to get my cats interested in this. Especially, since I have one cat that LOVES hair brushing. My two cats, which are two years old, I found that they aren't interested in catnip! My previous two cats who lived to 18 years old absolutely loved catnip. So I have this toy and I don't know what we are going to do with it. Seems like a carefully thought out toy; just, my cats weren't interested.

I bought this to try and replace the larger version I owned for years. It is very small and flimsy. Bring back the larger version!!

Although my cats haven't quite gotten the jest of this. They are interested in it.
Cats Did Not Like

All three of my cats were and still are uninterested. I've tried everything to get them to learn how to use it. Catnip spray entices them for about 5 mins. Otherwise it sits in their playroom.
My Cat Won't Go Near It!
on Jan 24, 2020
My cat first was AFRAID of this when I put it out and went running. Then he would walk far around where it was placed to avoid going near it. I tried lots of different locations and tactics to try to get him to feel comfortable with it but he avoids it. I don't feel right giving it low stars because it's only his sense of it - not that it isn't a good toy other cats would like. I hope they do! But for mine, this was a bust.
cats had no interest

Someone brought an unused one of these by to the cat hotel I work at and I set it up and put it down and out of 50+ cats there, not a single one had any interest in it. I should’ve looked it up but I didn’t see any markings on it so that I could google it, otherwise I would’ve tried putting catnip in different areas rather than just on the grey pad. They looked at it like it was an alien and we wound up tossing it because it got peed on a few times, which always makes me sad. I guess some cats like it but none of the cats at the hotel did.
Really impressed with this toy
on Oct 3, 2019Top 500 Contributor
The cat loves it. Took him a while to warm up to a new toy but once he did really enjoyed it. Great to rub his chin on his favorite thing to do. Chews on the tooth chew on top which I never thought he would do being as he’s not a chewing cat usually. Impressed with how well made it is and different textures to rub against for cats to enjoy. Would recommend this for any cat owner that has one needing to rub on an item to get satisfaction they need.
