Cat Exercise Wheel
- Product Review (submitted on June 13, 2015):
My cat loves the wheel. It took him a while to get the idea of it - probably about a month. He is 6 years old and we weren't sure if he was going to use it because for a while all he would do is lie down and get comfy on it! We used treats and a lazer pointer to train him as people have done, and also showed him how to do it by sitting beside the wheel and "walking" on it with our hands to get it moving - as if we're going for a walk with him. It took a while for him to realize that he can move it on his own but got the hang of it and slowly got comfortable running faster. Now he loves it and always wants us to do it with him - as soon as we come into the room he'll jump onto the wheel and start meowing! He uses it on his own as well but seems to view it as something fun we do together. He purrs like crazy. He is at a much healthier weight now after using it for only a couple of months.
No complaints. The only thing we found strange was the instructions made a big deal about how you have to leave a gap between the pads when you are putting them on, which we did but then when we got to the end there was an extra pad. So we could have put them on with no gaps and then just cut the last one to size.
