Silent Sunday on Frequently Feline: Cat Toy of Interest?

I have tried so many of these toys with our cats, and most of the time they fall on deaf "paws". So quickly they get bored.. sigh..

But when I first watched this video by Aaron Rift (who has done it again with another new charming addition to his series), I was struck and purrhaps more hopeful that our cats might be drawn to this toy.

The calico kitty seemed to be entranced and so involved playing with the toy that I had hope.

This said, wait till you watch the end of the video however, and you decide if this is such a captivating contraption.

Isn't it amazing how quick they learn to make up their own games? It took about 30 seconds to figure out it could lay down in one spot and bat it back and forth between paws! Cats are soooooo smart!
We have two of those in our house and the cats just love them.

Our boyz soon lost interest in their turbo scratcher we bought them recently.Their favourite games always involve mammies doing the running about lol

How cute is this kitty? It didn't take him very long to figure out how to play with this toy. I bet he could play with it for hours.

I think one of the keys with both cat and dog toys is to NOT have all of them available all the time. Rotate toys in and out of circulation so that they really don't get the time to be blase about any individual toy.

It's so true that cats, like humans, like variety! and they love new toys. So rotating them is a good idea. My cats don't care much for the hard plastic toys -- they prefer "da Bird", "Cat Dancer", and soft toys with catnip, or sparkle balls. Aaron must have a secret cat attractant he puts on this toy!

This toy was a favorite of my daughters cat, Harry Monster." His twist on the toy was to wrap his front legs around the inside post and capture the ball. Then he would grab the ball and pull it right out of the track. Once out of the track he lost interest. LOL

Mine just can't be bothered with this type of toy. Ho hum... it doesn't move by itself, not interested.
