I think I enjoyed the flopping fish more than my cats. They grew bored with it rather quickly. Their favorite of the many Chewy toys is still the Frisco Butterfly cat track. The butterfly is long gone, however the rolling balls are whacked frequently throughout the day. I know, cause I can hear them!
I have a very needy, play focused cat. We got the floppy fish in hopes that we can Rest every once in a while And get things done during the day. Day 1 and it's been amazing. She immediately went after the fish and took it to her favorite play spots and played with it until she was done playing and started cleaning herself. This is the first automatic toy that has captivated her for this long. Very Pleased so far. I hope it keeps working as is!
My cat received this from my boyfriends mom for Christmas and he LOVES IT! When I first got him two years ago he would play with plush toys. After awhile he became bored of them. I bought new plush toys and he just sits on them, never actually playing with them. I tried using catnip with them and would only lick the catnip. This toy however gets him interested and encourages him to play. He still sits by it to claim it but he actually PLAYS with it and that makes me so happy to see.
Ok. To start, I thought I had gotten a broken fish. Charged it, turned it on, and.... nothing. Put it back on the charger, turned it on and.... nothing (again). Disappointed, I tossed it on the counter and it promptly started flopping around. It just didn't occur to me that this fish would be motion activated. D'oh. Cat thinks it's ok. He likes to slap it and watch it flop around.
We bought this fish for Christmas, 2022, and followed all of the instructions and it never took a charge which in turn meant it never worked. The battery pack and port for the charge cord do seem really cheap, so I am thinking it has something to do with that. Was really hoping to have this toy for my babies for Christmas. Oh well.
I was sure at least ONE of my kitties would love it. I took videos of them to show that they had NO interest at all. Unfortunate but going to pass on to a friend. Hoping her kitties love it.
Charged the battery pack fully and it seems ours is defective. The fish moves for about 5-10 seconds, stops then doesn't turn back on. The instructions say to touch its belly to start movement. Despite touching the entire fish and the whole battery pack even when outside the fish, it doesn't move.
My cat loves this toy brings it to me when it need charging, didn't care for it much as a kitten but now that he's bigger he loves it
The charging took too long. It was too hard to get the fish mechanics to work. Turning it off was just as bad. Sometimes it turned itself off too fast other times couldn't get it off even after taking mechanism out. Smudge avoided the fish when moving, had trouble attacking heavy toy. Finally settled for tossing mechanism and just stuffing the fish with catnip.
Purchased early for a stocking stuffer Christmas present for my new kittens, opened on Christmas and it won’t change it will not turn on. I charged it all night and still nothing. I’m glad I purchased other toys for them but very disappointed with this fish
