My cats LOVE this toy. But in the span of 2 days, I had to return 3 of them because they kept breaking. This product is a total piece of junk. But there is hope!

Solution: Buy a child's fishing reel - those plastic ones with characters on them (maybe 10 bucks, max) and the replacement Catfisher Lures, or any sort of catnip mouse. Attach catnip mouse to child's fishing reel, and enjoy. Our Finding Nemo children's reel has lasted over a year, and we have to hide it when we aren't playing!

This is a great cat toy, but there is a design flaw. When reeling the mouse back in, the line can very easily get tangled inside the handle or completely miss the reel. However, there is a secret to using it successfully. The only thing you have to do is hold the line at the opening of the cat's mouth as you reel in the lure; just let the line go between your fingere gently pressed together. That way the line is not curled as it enters the handle, which is what causes the problem. My cat got this from Santa Claus several years ago, and it is till going strong. GOOD LUCK!

I only spent $10 on this at my local Pet Expo, and it wasn't even worth that. My cats got to play with it for about 10 minutes, then the line tangled up, snapped, and now I can't get it back together. Definitely not worth more than maybe $3.00. The saddest part is that your animal will LOVE it, and then sit next to you on the couch watching you try to fix it for 2 hours. Do NOT buy this product, get a children's pole instead and just tie a toy to the end.

Like another reviewer stated, my cats LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this toy. But, functionally, it's horrible. The line comes off the reel (this is internal so you have to try to take it apart to fix) and then it's impossible to reel the lure back. We also managed to break the rod into two pieces at which point you really can't cast the lure anymore.

I've accidentally smacked my curio cabinet numerous times with the weighted lure (obviously I don't have good hand and eye coordination) and am glad I haven't broken the cabinet, yet.

Most importantly, do NOT leave your cat unattended with this toy available as they will chew through the line and, if they swallow the line, this can lead to severe, and possibly fatal, intestinal blockages.

I'll probably buy another one because my cats do adore this but it will be with the full knowledge that it won't last long and I'll be very careful to remove it when I'm not actively playing with my cats.

We bought this cat toy after Christmas and within two weeks it broke. Fishing line tangled inside the reel and we couldn't get it to work correctly even after we took it apart. Poorly made and I don't recommend it.

I agree with what most people have written about this toy. My cats absolutely loved it, but it broke literally within the first two minutes of playing with it. I'm a pretty handy do-it-yourself kind of girl and opened it up to fix it and the only thing I can come up with is that this thing is DESIGNED to break and be impossible to reel back in. It would be a very simple change in design and engineering to have made this a properly working toy, but the construction of the reeling mechanism is just illogical.

It's odd because otherwise the materials seem to be high quality. I hope they've not made it so just so that people have to replace it more often and pay the exorbitant price for the toy.

And I agree with the person who said that the worst part of the toy is that your animal will absolutely love it and follow you around as you spend two hours trying to fix it.

My Cat loves this toy, I mean LOVE... she loves to play all night. But I am on my second one, the first one broke and boy she was so tiffed the rest of the night after it broke, the next morning I went to the store to return it and get a new one. Nice invention, but could be more well built. It tangles and gets stuck or caught and then you have to take it apart and good luck getting it working again. I am on my 2nd one, thought I had to take it back. I may try that barbie fishing rod idea, for the price you pay, this is ridiculous to replace all the time...

My cats go crazy for this toy. Best of all, it allows you to be interactive but stay sitting. True, it does tend to tangle inside the spool. You just have to unscrew it, remove the bolt you'll need a wrench), lift off the silver plate and untangle it. Sounds like a pain, I know, but there ins't a better cat toy on the market, and you will laugh so hard cat become a kitten again. Note that I am not the slightest bit handy, yet I was still able to figure out how to fix it.
