This device automatically slings a colorful string to entice frisky felines with the opportunity of perpetual play. The toy hangs on a doorknob and rapidly casts the 26" string and promptly reels it in, triggering a feline's instinctual attraction to quickly moving objects. When the cat clutches onto the string the belt stops, restarting only when the feline lets go. The device has two speeds suitable for either lethargic or spry cats. Requires three AA batteries. 29" H x 5" W x 1 1/2" D. (1 1/3 lbs.)

All three of our cats love it. I can't believe it is still in one piece after two weeks...similar cat toys haven't even lasted a week in our home!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When my cats first saw this toy, they were really intrigued, to varying degrees. After a few weeks, they still are interested in playing with it, although not for as long. It is holding up well to some rough playing and tugging. If they get bored with it, I don't turn it on for a few days and give them other toys to play with and sometimes they will let me know that they want to play with it by batting at it and trying to pull on the rotating band. This toy holds up well to kitty tugging and biting. Definitely recommend that it should be part of cat's toy chest. Recommend getting rechargeable batteries with it. My Sanyo batteries [eneloop] work really well with this toy and it will run well over 24 hours of constant play before running down.

The idea itself is good and I think some cats really enjoyed it but construction of the item needs work. 2" of the multi colored string was eaten off the first time used and there are signs of damage on more parts of the string. The black elastic band that is used to attach to door is frayed at the bottom and will not last to much longer, this is after 3 times in use. The white elastic has signs of pulls but seems fine after 4 uses. The orange housing seems good. I would only recommend this for "small" cats unless different materials are used. I will continue to use this product until I can't use it anymore. I may be able to repair the string and elastic myself but will have to first find something the same.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I hung this on a door handle (not a knob) which works fine. Place it near where you can monitor your cats playing with it as it is string. I have two cats. One was a little afraid of it and the other went right for it playing and having fun while the other watched. After a while, the other cat started playing with it too. The string did get caught at the bottom of the toy a couple of times. I just pulled on it a little and it released. If my cats grab the string and start chewing on it I make them let go of it.
