Is it time to accessorize your cat's exercise wheel? This set of 4 small roller blade wheel covers will conceal the support wheels and make the large wheel look even sleeker than before.
This is currently for only Second Generation wheels. To determine if your wheel is First or Second Generation, look to the roller blade wheels. All Second Generation roller blade Wheels are black. We are in the process of creating a retro fit for First Generation wheels to make covers available to them as well.
We came up with the idea for wheel covers after customers contacted us in regards to their cats "riding the wheel". This is when a cat lunges high on the wheel, grabs onto the sides, and then rides it down to the bottom. Most cats know when to let go, but some customers expressed concerns about the possibility of pinched paws
With these Wheel Covers in place, cats will be discouraged from "riding the wheel". If they do exhibit this behavior, the Wheel Covers will safely sweep their paws away from the small roller blade wheels.This avoids any startling moments for you and your cat, and helps keep them running! It will also discourage curious cats in multiple cat households from playing with the roller blade wheels.
Compatable only with 4th generation wheels.
- Kittens need these Review by Bengals in Love
Kittens learning the wheel definitely need the wheel covers. I bought a wheel secondhand and it didn’t have the covers. The kittens still learned, but there were some sore paws at first. I recommend all of the families who adopt my babies get one.
My intact adult male spends so much time on the wheel that I happily had to double his food. He is so muscular, healthy, calm and happy that I can’t recommend One Fast Cat enough. He does fine without the wheel covers;)
I took one star off as I wish the covers connected more firmly, otherwise a great product! (Posted on 5/20/2018)
