Cat Exercise Wheel
- Product Review (submitted on February 22, 2016):
- We have two bonded kittens from different litters: one turned into a tiny Siamese with no food issues and the other is a mischievous, spider-monkey Bengal with a gluttony problem. The Siamese is too skittish to really enjoy running on the wheel but when her brother plays she gets revved up too and plays with her mouse up on her cat tree. The video instructions said it would take a Bengal about a week to learn the wheel. Indeed, 7 days later he runs on the wheel for fun without prompting and he has lost his pudgy tummy over the month. At first he tried lazily reaching out his claws from nearby furniture to get the hand with the treat. We moved the wheel to the center of the room and used a long feather wand to save our skin. Now he particularly likes when we help spin the wheel so he can run even faster and meows at us when we get home so he can get a really good run... and we get exercise too. The favored treats are pill pockets because they can be broken into very small yet very smelly pieces.
