    My kittens love this toy. It gives them exercise agility and a lot of fun. My children run around with it and the cats cannot resist. True to its name! Well made and good price, best of all: Made in the USA!

    My cats absolutely LOVE this toy. My only complaint is that I wish it came with a spare mouse. The cats have played so hard with this one, that I will have to pay almost as much for a replacement mouse as I did for the entire toy, etc.
    ConsNo spare mouse.

    my cats love this toy. I bought it as an add on on another website and they fight over it?!? no idea why they love it so much but it was the cheapest on this website so i bought another so they both have one. the best thing is my cat likes to eat the strings off toys so he can't break this one which makes me love it more!

    Learned my lesson! Boo likes mice more than the dangly things.

    Other than for his preference,this is a good toy-no complaint on its construction.

    The right type of cat should like the Cat Catcher.

    My cat, Blu, loves this toy. He chases it and then when we let go of the wand, he takes it off to his corner. We have hours of fun! I hate that I waited so long to purchase this interactive joy!!!

    Cat Catcher - My Cat loves
    April 12, 2016
    My cat loves this toy and it's not easy to get a 14 year old cat moving. She actually did a back flip going after it! Unfortunately I can't give the toy a 5 star rating because the toy broke after a couple of days.

    Deceptively simple looking

    The Cat Catcher is just a small mouse-like object attached to a wand, but cats go crazy for it. Many of my petsitting clients have to hide the toy in a drawer or closet whe it isn't in play. I think the attraction is in the rawhide tail, which seems to wag a bit when the toy is trailed along the floor. Do NOT let the kitty get this toy in her teeth - you'll have trouble getting it back.

    Our own cats, and the cats at the shelter where we volunteer, LOVE the Cat Catcher. This is a great toy to engage kitties, and help them get some exercise.

    Used to Be My Cat's Favorite Toy
    May 25, 2015
    This used to be my cat's favorite toy. Indestructible ... and he's a beast. They changed the product and now they fall apart on first few plays. When my cat spit up a few days back, we found pieces of the mouse. We bought three and all three broke immediately. Not a good toy. Not even sure it's safe.

    Cats love cat catcher - glad it's cheap

    My cats went crazy for this thing even though they've had another similar toy for some time. One of my girls even brings it to bed a couple nights a week.

    However, when I received it, the attachment had a sharp edge that would catch on carpet and furniture. I wrapped it in tape. Then, one part of the mouse got caught on something and completely unraveled into hundreds of fine, small threads. We still play happily with the rest of it.

    so my cats LOVE this toy, its their favorite ever! but sadly after only 1 - 2 weeks of normal play, the wires (right where they insert into the wand) always break. and it hasnt just happened once, it happens every time :( i keep replacing it cuz they get so much enjoyment out of it, but its getting pretty pricey. might have to try to find a new toy that is made better.

    My cat went nuts
    January 30, 2015
    My kitty absolutely loves this toy. He meows at us to play with him and he's never done that with any of his other toys. There are only a couple of minor drawbacks. One, it didn't take him long to chew the tail off (two days after we got it). Two, the wire broke 3 weeks after purchase. Fortunately, it broke near the wand, so it was fairly easy to repair. Other than that, the toy is great. Kitty brings it to bed, carries it to every room we're in so we can play and even lays on it when we're not playing.

    Excellent purchase!

    Great toy for exercise
    December 13, 2014
    This toy is excellent for getting your cats to exercise. When drug on the floor, the bobber end moves like a running mouse. The tail on the toy may not last long, but the toy will still work and is attractive to a cat that wants to play.

    This is my cats' favorite toy! (And they have a lot of toys!) This type is always a good choice: wand, wire, natural-looking "lure". They love it=:)

    One of our cat's cat-sitters introduced this toy to our cat who never liked any toy we got her, but who LOVES this. She did eventually break one of the wires, so we got her not one, but three, replacements. She sometimes catches it showing great athletic ability and I just wait until eventually she lets it drop, only to go after it again.

    It also makes a great gift for any cat.

    I bought this because it has fishing line, my cats are brutal with toys. And they LOVED it! It's made well and fun to use.

    Ever see your cat smile and laugh? Do they sit by the drawer you keep their toys in, waiting for you to take one out to play? They will with this toy. There's something about how the mouse wiggles on the end of the wire that makes kitties go nuts. Get your bored (and maybe a bit chubby) cat leaping into the air with this toy. I'd never let them have it unattended though -- just take it out for 15-30 minutes a day when your relaxing and watching TV -- except that watching your kitties will be even more entertaining!

    Always have on-hand!
    December 4, 2012
    My house has been using Cat Catcher wands for years now...we cannot be without them --- my 3 cats LOVE this toy. I have to keep extras on-hand at all times. Unfortunately, the wire breaks/frays rather quickly. We have come up with our own methods of extending the "life" of the wands...before giving it to the cats...we remove the red tip at the top and use Gorilla glue inside and on the outside. After it dries, we wrap duck tape or clear packing tape around the red tip, wire, and onto the wand. This really helps. Also, when the wire frays. We remove the wire and use fishing line instead (re-wrap with tape also). This has extended the life of the wand for months now. NOTE: be careful with the fishing line as it can get wrapped around cat legs, tails -- always supervise play with this toy. Happy Playing! =^..^=

    Every cat needs one of these

    This is my cat's favorite toy. This is his 2nd one. I had to buy a new mouse refill for the first one because he chewed it down to nothing. Then he chewed the rubber ends off of the wand and the wire started to unravel. He drags it around all over the place. He brings it to bed. He brings it to me when he wants me to play. I actually ordered 3 this time: one for my cat, one for a backup, and one for my friend's cat :)

    Both of my cats LOVE this is clever, well-made and acts like a really mouse skittering across the floor. My male cat brings the toy to us up 4 flights of stairs so that we will play with him. They used to chew through the string of other flying toys, but this one they can't chew through. I hope this toy will always be available. I have already purchased another for my daughter's cat.
