Satisfies cats' desire to stalk and hunt, keeping them physically fit

Includes two foam spiral balls for tantalizing "toy hunting" games
Measures: 14" x 14" x 3", with 1.75" diameter holes that have smooth edges for your kitty's safety
I bought this for my kittens because they love to do what many cats do: hide a toy under a door, piece of furniture, etc. and fish it out. They also love playing with a cardboard box on its side and many toys they can knock in and out of it.
This toy confused them. They really couldn't see why they should care about it. They knocked the balls snd some toys out of it twice, but that was it. Once my kittens hide a toy, they want to get it out and then hide it again and repeat. Once they had the balls out, the game was over. I filled it with other toys, but that still wasn't as interesting as taking one of the toys they like more - or a darn milk ring, bottle cap, or wadded up pall of pape -I bought this for my kittens because they love to do what many cats do: hide a toy under a door, piece of furniture, etc. and fish it out.

It's too easy for them to see the toys and get them. Now, if I take several pieces of tissue paper and tent them on the floor with toys underneath, they will play for ages, digging their toys out, hiding them, hiding themselves, etc.
I tried putting treats in this toy and, yes, they will fish them out. It doesn't take long and when they've finished the treats, they move on to something else. Not what I hoped. :(… more
It's a hit!

My cat loves to stick her favorite spring toys under my bookshelf so that she can fish it back out. Unfortunately that means that she often cannot retrieve her all of her toys. Fortunately this toy box exists! Now kitty can drop her toys in a box and fish them out with no problems. I might cover a few holes to make it harder for her but for now she is happy. The key with cat toys is to know your cat and how he or she plays. If your cat does not show any play signs that would relate to fishing out toys then do not buy this.

After receiving this toy for my two kittens, I was very disappointed. If you are hoping to keep your pet entertained for more than a minute or two, you won't be happy with this. My kittens removed everything I put in it very quickly. I think the design is flawed. There are too many holes on the sides. This makes it extremely easy to get the toys and treats out. It would be nice if they redesigned it or made the difficulty level adjustable with sliding panels on the inside. Great idea; poor design.
Nothing too special here...

Unfortunately the cat could take it or leave it. He steps in the holes rather than plays with the toys I put in it. Most of the time he can't be bothered. I have a predatory cat who likes things that move. If he has to move it himself, he isn't interested.
Keep it exciting!

My cat liked this toy when it first arrived, but he started to get bored quickly and didn't care to get the toys out.. Then, I tried putting treats in the holes and he had to work to get them out. If your cat is like mine, and is more focused on food than toys, this could work for you if you put treats inside.
Grownup cats are not interested!

Unless you have a kitten, no sense of buying this toy box. I have six cats (all over five years old) and not one showed any interest in the box. I offered it to a friend that has a kitten but the kitten also didn't care for it. I hope to return it!
Great Mental Activity for Cats

My cat loved this toy! It's well built, which is hard to find in pet toys, & the fact that you can add other toys is really nice.

The cat's aren't obsessed with the toy, but we catch them playing with it when we're not looking, and after we get home from work, there are toys all over the front room that we put in it.
I love this product

Hours of fun for all your feline pets.

Even the fat cat will partake of this toy stuffed with surprises for them to explore and catch. Inside Kitty's as well as outside cats love this toy which I filled with mice, balls, and other toys. Hours of fun for your furry friends.
