I had this toy years ago but threw it away when Geisha got a URI, paranoid me threw everything away when that happened.  Anyway for Christmas I decided to get another for them as a present.  I did not even get it out of the packaging and Topaz was attacking it she remembered the toy. 

This toy is a riot to watch Topaz play with she turns into a spring chicken with this toy, she is all over it upside down, on top of it she would even get under it if she could.  She goes so nuts with this toy that I only get it out for her to play with when I am home to watch her, scared the crazy cat is going to throw her back out again.

Geisha just likes to sit in the center of it an keep Topaz from being able to play with it, the typical little sister being a PITA syndrome.

I've had this toy for years, and my cats loved it!  One cat, who has gone to the Bridge, used to love to curl up and sleep right in the middle of it.  I get it out periodically, but my current kitty loves to lick and eat the cardboard scratching area in the middle.  So, when she starts that, I have to put it away.  If your cat doesn't start doing that, that I can recommend it as a great toy.  We put another ball in the channel to double the fun when 2 cats were trying to play with it at the same time.   Cheesy

Cato has one of these and he loves it!  The sound of the ball going round and round can sometimes drive me nuts when I'm trying to fall asleep.  I've had to hide the thing recently  Embarrassed - what an evil meowmie I am sometimes!

Kaffe,

The one I had when I lived in my studio apt Topaz you to started playing with at like 2AM, YIKES I had to start remembering to turn it upside down before bed.  Now with this new one I put it away, when I am not home and when I go to bed.

MandyCat,

Neither of mine seem to try and eat the cardboard in the middle YET anyway.  that is one of the reason I like this toy for them, because they can play with it by theirselves.  My eating experience was with one of those fishing poles, Topaz pulled it down one time and decided to eat the string from both ends and ended up getting a trip to the ER and  exploratory surgery to remove it.  Till this day both my cats will eat ribbon string etc.... First Christmas I had Topaz I was clueless of what cats do, so I had nice curl ribbon on all my packages, come February topaz threw up a big greean and red wad of curling ribbon.  YIKES

I had a kind of mini version of the turbo scratcher for several years.  It didn't have the pad in the middle, and the cats would knock the whole thing all over the living room.  Someone would get an arm stuck every once in awhile because the track was different.  The dog eventually got the ball out, and I put a rattly ball in that was 10x worse to listen to.  They got bored with it after awhile so it went to the thrift shop. 

Bet mine would love this one, they really like the cardboard scratch pads with 'nip on them.

I think it's the catnip in the scratch pad that makes her want to lick and eat it.  I should probably get a new pad and not put any catnip on it.  That way she could still enjoy the ball and scratch the pad without being tempted to eat it!   Wink

MandyCat,

The catnip probably is the culprit, I have never put catnip in my cardboard, I have use catneip to entice them to try out new beds in the past, LOL but I never need to encourage them to use this toy.

BTW the catnip in the round donut beds never worked they would just tip it over eat teh catnip and sleep elsewhere, Angry
