    Cats love it – maintenance seems to be a pain., December 21, 2008
    By 
    Jen Wiehl (Sacramento, CA) –

    Easy assembly and when I hooked it up it only took seconds for my three cats to start pouncing. It also took seconds for the thing to stop working.

    After about an hour of tinkering and debating on returning it, I figured out the motor was working fine, it seemed to be the elastic band was too tight – that or the roller was stuck. I put some cooking oil on the bottom roller and everything started working just fine.

    It’s been less than 24 hours and my youngest cat started crying at me this morning – he never talks. I turned the Fling-ama-String on and he was totally happy. It’s even getting my oldest cat (14 years old) off his big rear end and exercising.

    All in all, the cats love it. I just wished they had send some troubleshooting instructions along with it.

    Great, sturdy toy- but use COMMON SENSE, November 16, 2011

    I bought this toy and my cats abuse abuse abuse it- and it still works and they still love it 6 months later. I am a veterinary student and I run a rescue mission. I have very young cats, very old cats and special needs cats. Every one of these cats loves this toy, even the 2 1/2 legged cat ad the 15 year old diabetic. However, as with ANY CAT TOY only allow play while supervised. Any toy that has string, loops, or any parts that can be dislodged should never be left unsupervised. This is not a babysitter. This toy, like many toys, should be put in a safe place unless there is direct supervision for play time (this also makes a toy more desirable because it is not always available). I have read the bad reviews on here and I agree that a cat can potentially get into trouble with this toy by getting caught up on the belt, getting wrapped up in the attachment belt, or eating the string. BUT that is the case with most cat toys! If you supervise your animals you will have absolutely no problems. It is when they are bored and alone that they get into the trouble. AGAIN- this is NOT a babysitter and it does NOT take your place for attention. I have seen many animals, not just cats, in the clinic after digesting some well intended toy: cats, dogs, guinea pigs, snakes, birds, reptiles, etc. This toy is much safer than many many toys that I have seen marketed for animals, or small children for that fact. Furthermore, I have bought many expensive motorized toys that didn’t last two days before being broken by this group. This toys has been tugged on, slammed into the door and tortured for 6 months by 15 cats and, while it shows a little wear-and-tear, it still works perfectly and they still come running when I bring it out. It is a great buy and I highly recommend it. Remember, for cats (and many domesticated animals) – half the fun is impressing you with their play and getting noticed for their “slick moves” (they are show-offs just like the humans!! and need recognition, too). Cheap entertainment for me and good exercise for them!!

    Keeps my cats entertained, April 28, 2009
    By 
    Amazon Customer (NC) –

    I’ve got 5 cats, and despite the fact that I have cat toys all over my house, they’re perpetually bored and looking for more entertainment. I play with them one on one when I get the chance, but when they’re looking for something to do and I’m busy, I can turn this toy on and it keeps them interested for about half an hour.

    It came with a satiny thin string, but the string eventually started fraying, and then the safety feature would kick in on the toy as it met resistance and the motor would pause. I had to keep getting up to get the toy moving again. I tried cutting the string a little shorter but then the whole string came apart. Instead of chucking the toy, you can buy satin cord to replace it for very cheap or go with a flat shoelace if you want to worry less about your cats ingesting it. I’ve tried both options, though I did notice my cats were less interested in the shoelace as compared to the satin cord.

    There are two features I’d like to see in future versions. One would be a timer that turns the toy off after a certain period. Sometimes, if the string gets stuck and the toy pauses you can forget that you haven’t actually turned it off and waste battery life. Second, I’d love if they made some kind of snap on plastic cover for safety reasons so the cats can’t access the string when the toy is turned off, so I wouldn’t have to constantly pull it off the door to store away from them during downtime.
