Winner of Cat Fancy's Editor's Choice Award and Backer Show's Best New Product
Challenge your cat to catch the constantly moving string on this award-winning, battery-operated cat toy. Elastic belt continuously rotates from top to bottom, flinging the long, colorful, sewn-on string. Once your cat lets go of the string, the belt automatically starts to rotate again. Convenient on/off speed control slide allows you to switch between two different speeds (fast and slow) to satisfy the frisky or faint feline. Easily hangs on any standard doorknob with included metal S-hook hanger. Black elastic belt at bottom secures toy firmly to door, so toy doesn't bang against or damage door. Requires 3 AA batteries, not included. No assembly required. Measures 4" x 1-1/2" x 28-1/2" high (31-1/2" high with hanger).
Please click on "More Information" for instructions and tips.
Place 3 AA batteries (not included) into back compartment.
Hang S-hook to knob on front of any standard door.
Pull the black elastic belt (at bottom of toy) under the door. Pull one of the loops around back door knob. Choose the tightest loop to best secure toy.
To prevent kitty from pulling/pushing door, keep door closed.
Turn on by moving slide to the right. Choose speed 1 (slow) or speed 2 (fast) according to kitty's preference.
Your cat will catch the string from time to time by biting, clawing, or pawing. When kitty lets go, the string will immediately start to rotate again.
Tips for you and your cat
When toy is turned off, please make sure string is hidden behind the elastic belt.
The black flat elastic belt is not to be used as a toy. Keep it attached to the back doorknob at all times when kitty is playing with the toy.
Please do not attach any objects to the end of the string. This will cause serious damage to the toy.
When to replace batteries: The batteries will last for hours and hours and hours… But then the string might start to catch on the frame, and you'll notice a reduction in the speed of the string. Do not worry. The toy is working properly, it's just time to change the batteries.
Scaredy cats: You might have to show him the ropes (or in this instance, the string). Turn the toy on. Kneel down in front of the toy. Play with the toy by catching and batting at the string (don't worry, we won't tell anyone). Or, pull the string out as far as it goes. Dangle the string in front of kitty. As he gets interested, turn the toy on and let go. Your "fraidy" cat will turn into a courageous lion in no time!
Genius kitties: Your over-achiever might want to advance past conventional Fling-ama-String play. You can mix things up by: (For doors that have a bit of space under them) Putting your kitty on the other side of the door/toy/you. Close the door. Turn the toy on. Kitty peeks under the door. Next, a paw will appear. Then, an entire leg. Finally, you'll witness two wildly flailing paws and legs trying to catch the string! Or, kitty might want the challenge of a moving string and a moving door. Turn the toy on, and keep the door open. (We apologize for any loud, door-crashing noises that might occur!). He can also stalk the toy from behind the open door, and then pounce on his prey (the string) when the time is just right.
Note: This is a cat toy. Do not use as a child's toy (does not conform to ASTM-F963-96a). Please have an adult supervising your cat while playing with this toy.
