Multiple cat household and this SEEMED like a good idea. It is an epic fail. "Cheap" in design and fortunately to buy. It requires a heavy touch to activate in one specific place and catnip included is apparently to be put in the same pouch as the mechanical mechanism. This would be a mistake as the mechanism has openings and hinges where the nip would get into. None of our cats would engage with it.
The fish is a moderate size, and once charged flops around like a fish that has been caught does in the bottom of a boat. Very enticing to me and I’m confident that it is to some cats. Unfortunately once it started flopping my cat was scared of it. Still, it was worth a try.
Hard to give this stars because our scaredy-cats are afraid of it. Good grief! Yours may not be so I chose the kind of middle ground as far as stars go. I’m going to recommend it because you won’t know until you try. Snd it is a bit hilarious watching them try and be brave and play with it.
Followed charging directions exactly. Neither fish would run for more than a couple of minutes. Within a two days, both fish ceased working and would not charge.
My two little boys love this fish and the catnip seems to have really gotten them initially interested. Highly recommend to get older kitties moving.
I really love this idea of a interactive floppy fish. Unfortunately, my cat, who loves interactive toys, would paw at the fish and it would not move. It actually takes a good amound of human force to find the spot of the fish to make it flop. But it's the cat that's playing. So it renders it pretty useless if once it stops flopping, and my cat's interaction doesn't make it move, my cat gets bored. Not so interactive.
Two cautious cats had an hilarious reaction to this toy's movement each time one of them tapped it. They were entertained until my large dog swooped in to join the play. Thankfully he dropped the toy on command.
Both my dog and cat played with this for a couple of days. Unfortunately their Mom has misplaced the charging unit so for awhile they can't continue having fun with it.
I have four cats that range in ages from seven years to 9 weeks. I had high hopes for this toy. But they all just ignore it and the kitten is just terrified Of it, I think it's the noise it makes when the tail is flopping.
I thought it would be a great toy but very little excitement shown by our cats! Oh well I tried!
