Give your kitty the thrill of the hunt with the Petlinks Dizzy Thing Electronic Spinning Cat Toy. Designed to activate your pal’s prey-chasing instinct, it spins and rolls erratically to grab his attention and get him pouncing, swatting and leaping in no time. It has felt “ears” and a poofy feathery top to keep your pal engaged, and provides much-needed exercise to keep him fit, even if he loves being inside. Plus, the battery-run motor is ultra-quiet so it won’t startle even the most skittish of kitties.
Activates your kitty’s prey-seeking instinct with felt “ears” and poofy feathery tuft on top.
Erratic spinning action stimulates your kitty so he’ll be ready to pounce, swat, chase and tackle the toy.
Turns playtime into exercise time to keep your pal fit and healthy, whether he’s an indoor or outdoor kitty.
Works on carpets and hard floors so your feline buddy can play anywhere in your home.
Ultra-quiet motor so it’s ideal for skittish cats, and includes replaceable batteries so you can start playing right away.
Cats are creatures of habit with short attention spans—that's why brief, scheduled play sessions with your feline are best. Just two or more 10 to 15-minute sessions of interactive play a day is paw-fect and can also help preserve the battery life in your cat's favorite toy. The expected battery life in this toy is 15 hours, so remember to turn it off when it's not being used!

This is a cute little toy. Unfortunately, the package instructions were not very clear and it took a couple of days to finally find the "on/off" button which is just a slight indention on the smooth body of the toy. So, the first outing, it ran down the batteries because we couldn't figure out how to turn it off. The kitten I bought this for is very energetic and had a great time batting it, running away from it, and hiding under cover to "attack" it. She had fun with it. When it spins, the top "wings" swirl out and make it look like a little "critter" rolling around the room.
You never know with cats, but this one was a hit!

This was Yoda's main b/d gift. It took a minute for him to decide the spinning could be easily stopped, then he began dragging it away (as if to say "Mine!"). I like that it turns itself off if left alone. We have mainly tile flooring, so it often tracks along or gets stuck in the grout lines. Just wish it was rechargable, instead of battery operated.
Awesome Interactive Battery Toy

I’ve had this toy for a long time. My cats have played with it without it actually being “on” because I totally forgot it was battery-operated. My new kitten was playing with it and pushed on the button and it started spinning around, I was startled LOL. So you do have to press the button, but it is possible for the cat to press it by accident. It turns itself off after a while or if you get annoyed you can press the button and turn it off. My kitten loves it even when it’s not “on”, it rolls around on tile and berber carpet like a Weeble Wobble. When “on” it spins in one direction, stops, then spins the other direction, so really it doesn’t matter if it is on carpet or not it will work fine,I’ve had this toy for a long time.

It is very entertaining for the cat and the leaves are very soft so it doesn’t hurt when it hits him in the face or you in the foot. It’s a little smaller than a tennis ball. I’m going to buy several extra because it is awesome. I’ve had this for probably four years and it still works fine, I haven’t even replaced the batteries, but of course until recently we haven’t been using the battery operation. It looks brand new but my cats are not rough on their toys. I highly recommend this toy.… more
Cat gets bored
on Sep 3, 2020
Doesn't come back up after being batted:(
She likes to watch it for a little but quickly loses interest
Doesn't stay up right

This toy attracted my cats right away but as soon as it tips over they lose interest as it does not stay upright. A bit disappointed.
Dizzy Thing review

The toy is cute and held the attention of our attention deficit cats for a little while. It came without instructions and took a little while to locate the on button camouflaged in the body of the toy.

My cats are 10 years old so maybe not right for this, but while interested to start, a slap in the face helped them lose interest quickly. I ordered two, first one kept losing the top and when glued on it stopped spinning. 2nd one worked but spun so fast, cats could not keep up. Good idea but a little slower and with a longer break between spins might have worked better for my cats. Also kittens may be more of an audience.
Awesome, well thought through toy

The random action gets even our seasoned huntresses playing!! It wasn't mentioned but this toy must have an auto shut off which is perfect for times our kitties chase it under something getting it stuck! Now, if only there was a dog toy like this for our golden retriever!!!

7/10 cats showed interest. At least 5 cats smacked the thing around, no one avoided it. Throwing a sheet of brown wrapping paper over it increased interest. Putting it in a box of ping pong balls freaked out some cats, interested others. Elderly cat was content to watch as spectator sport. Pros- a happy spinning flapping, simple auto toy. Cons- only an on off switch. Typical and not surprising but cats tend to respond better to more erratic movements. Rating system. I don't reject every cat to play with toy with wild enthusiasm. If it attracts interest, adds to their environment and keeps them entertained. We Bought two petlinks dizzy links.
Cute Toy but.....
on Mar 14, 2020
This is cute and held my cat's attention for about a minute. IT's just not strong enough and stops when up against anything or when the cats hold onto it. I would not recommend it.
