Cat Exercise Wheel
- Product Review (submitted on October 1, 2016):
Our torbie cat is now 8 years old and I wish I would have known about this product years ago. We bought the cat wheel about two months ago and cannot believe how much of a difference it has already made in our cat. She has always been kind of hyper and high strung and anxious, and often destructive and at times even aggressive. She's an indoor cat so we figured being indoors and her personality are the contributing factors, but even with cat videos, window perches, various toys, spending lots of time with her and on occasion trying "calming" natural remedies, nothing seemed to change her behavior, so we just accepted it. Then by some kind of luck I saw an ad for the cat wheel on another website and clicked on it. After reading about how it especially helps indoor cats, I decided to give it a shot. I must say the instructional videos and training videos are great, because that's all we needed to get it set up and start training her, however, it really didn't take much training. Before we knew it, she started getting on the wheel on her own at various times throughout the day, and now she absolutely loves it. She runs on the wheel on her own about every hour, and only for a short minute or two, but she does it throughout the day and night. Sometimes she slowly runs on it, and a few times she really gets it going, but again, she doesn't run on it for a long time but in short spurts but she does it almost every hour all day and night. We cannot believe how much she has changed since she started using the wheel. She has a much calmer demeanor, hasn't attacked either of us in weeks, is not destroying anything in the house, and seems very content. Just like the website says-a bored cat is an unhappy cat-and now we feel like all of these years she was acting out because she was bored and had pent up energy that the other toys and things we tried weren't helping with. This wheel has done wonders for our cat, and she has lost weight too-rather quickly. She looks like the muscular svelte kitty she's supposed to be. So we no longer feel guilty that our cat doesn't go outside to run around, and our cat seems much more calm and content, and we couldn't be happier that we purchased this wheel. Whomever came up with this product is a genius! We live in a very small place too but the wheel really doesn't take up a whole lot of room either, which we were nervous about when we bought it, so we are happy about that too. We highly recommend this product and are so glad we found it!
Made in the USA too :)
