The most important thing you can do to prevent boredom in your cat is to make sure their environment is stimulating. This means an environment with things to do – windows to look out of, things to watch, places to climb and safe toys to play with. Climbing posts, scratching posts, cat grass, windows perches, window beds, and a view of birds or squirrels to watch are all great ways to enrich your cats life and prevent boredom.
In nature cats would use their energy to hunt. That hunting requires short bursts of energy then they'd spend the rest of the time sleeping and grooming so they'll be ready for the next hunt (grooming is important so prey won't smell them coming). Without the need to hunt prey they need other outlets for that pent up energy. It’s good for cats to get some sort of workout and changing it up to keep them interested is important. There are many ways to keep your cat lively, giving them access to energetic companions, making a play session part of their day, and/or offering them tempting exercise equipment for use when you’re not at home…that’s why we came up with “One Fast Cat™” cat wheel.

- My cats love it! Review by Kim
The wheel arrived ahead of schedule and assembly was very straight forward and easy. It does take more force to snap into place then I expected, especially when getting the last ends of the track to meet. Don't be afraid to give it some elbow grease and use the mallet provided.
All of my cats started using the exercise wheel the first day, they love it! All but one of my cats was food motivated and the other took to it right away after getting out the laser pointer.
After the first day two of my cats would use it with out encouragement and the rest started using it without help after two days.
I love the cat wheel and have every intention of getting another since my cats have started not wanting to share it.
My only complaint would be that the outside of the wheel does not look the best but I understand it's functional and keeps the weight down. (Posted on 9/4/2017)
- Once assembled it's the coolest thing ever! Review by Byrdie
I work on film sets and I was worried about the long days away . I was worried Byrdie would be bored and depressed all day long so I went ahead and purchased the onefastcat wheel. I was grateful for the coupon code and just pushed the button and bought it . II'm really so glad I did . The shipment was fast, but to be honest with you it remained in the box for a minute until a friend came over to help me . We watched the video you have on your website twice and it really was super helpful . Byrdie is so much happier now ! She sings when she's on it ! I can't even tell you how much joy your product has brought to my
household. Thank you so very much . It really is so great :) (Posted on 8/31/2017)
- Mixed breed used it by herself within an hour! Review by Ciara
- Tigger Approved Review by Stephanie
The entire time my husband was putting it together Tigger would sniff it and run away, he is a 9 week old f3 Savannah Cat. To be honest I was getting worried he would be scared of it. As soon as it was up I used his favorite feather wand like the training video showed and off he went. In a matter of minutes no toy was needed to entice him. Tigger is now resting from all the running!
This wheel is the best money we have spent on him next to his cat walk tube. This wheel is the perfect size, I have no doubt he will be using it for a long, long time!
Thank You One Fast Cat for a Great Wheel at a price we could afford!!! (Posted on 4/29/2017)
