Rated 5 out of 5 by Tikirust Great Toy!
My 4 year old cat, Dottie, LOVES this toy! She loves to wrestle with it and bite it. She pretty much demolishes this toy after a few months and only then will loose interest in it. But when I give her a new one, she attacks it with gusto. She goes through about 2-3 per year, but the price is low enough that I don't mind indulging her. The ears do fall off early on, but my other cats like to bat them around so it's a win-win for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by firstcoyote Cute design. It's just too big.
I read the other reviews from other customers, about how this toy is too big. And I ordered it anyway. They're right, it is too big for the average cat to play with. I consider this to be the perfect toy for a giant Maine Coon. My girl Samirah seems interested only when she sees me with it. I've never seen her play with it, not even when I sprinkled catnip on it. I thought she'd use it as a pillow when she took a nap. She did that once. Otherwise she ignores it.
The other reviewers are right: cute idea, it's just too big.
I do like the color and the construction though. It's well made. I like cardboard art, so I decided to claim this mouse for my own. He's now sitting on my computer desk.

Rated 3 out of 5 Very cute toy!!!
It's about the size of a small football. I do catch my grown kats playing with it. However, I spray it with katnip spray. Without the spray, they seem uninterested. But it's cute, and it does make a nice crinkle noise.

My 3-ish year old male cat is an enthusiastic, energetic player and he really enjoys destroying (ripping w/ teeth & claws) his cardboard boxes and other cardboard items. This Petstages Wrestle & Scratch toy does not appeal to him. Actually, it's the least wrestled and scratched of all his toys! When I first introduced it, one of the ears fell out with his very first bite. The ears are poorly secured but it's the add-ons/features that can attract Grady, especially the undersized tail, but only if I wiggle it. The toy is large prey for a cat and the middle is too bulky to get a good grip. Therefore, no wrestling. The cardboard is wrapped so tightly (good construction) that there's nothing to grab and tear! I'm considering using a tool to pull some edges free so Grady can can have something to work at. I bought the item thinking that it was worth a try for such a low price. If I could go back, I'd think differently and give Grady another empty paper towel roll :)
