Easy assembly and when I hooked it up it only took seconds for my three cats to start pouncing. It also took seconds for the thing to stop working.

After about an hour of tinkering and debating on returning it, I figured out the motor was working fine, it seemed to be the elastic band was too tight - that or the roller was stuck. I put some cooking oil on the bottom roller and everything started working just fine.

It's been less than 24 hours and my youngest cat started crying at me this morning - he never talks. I turned the Fling-ama-String on and he was totally happy. It's even getting my oldest cat (14 years old) off his big rear end and exercising.

All in all, the cats love it. I just wished they had send some troubleshooting instructions along with it.

My cats loved playing with this toy. Then, after a long period of supervised play, I turned the unit off and stowed the string according to the instructions on the box. However, a short time later, my cat figured-out how to pull the string from behind the rear side of the elastic band to which it is attached. She had managed to swallow most of the string, which is about 16"-18" long. Luckily, I was home, noticed what was happening and intervened by pulling over 12" of swallowed string from the mouth of my cat!

Of course, I immediately removed the toy from the door knob, studied the unit more carefully to understand how this had happened, then finally repackaged it in the box, putting it where my cats couldn't get to it.

In my opinion, there is a design flaw in the unit. Simply shutting off the toy with the string behind the back side of the belt is not enough (obviously) to prevent a cat from finding the string and then swallowing it. If the design were modified to place a solid plastic wall between the front side and back side of the belt, attaching the plastic to the sides of the belt housing, then the string couldn't be pulled back out by a curious cat.

In an effort to help improve safety and potentially to save a cat's life, as well as to help the manufacturer of an otherwise nice toy, I later called the manufacturer to advise her of what had happened and to present my suggestion.

The call was answered by a machine stating no one was available to take my call. But as I was leaving the message, a woman picked up the phone (sounding like I had woken her up. The call was placed at 10am EST on a Tuesday).

I began to tell her why I had called.

I bought this toy and my cats abuse abuse abuse it- and it still works and they still love it 6 months later. I am a veterinary student and I run a rescue mission. I have very young cats, very old cats and special needs cats. Every one of these cats loves this toy, even the 2 1/2 legged cat ad the 15 year old diabetic. However, as with ANY CAT TOY only allow play while supervised. Any toy that has string, loops, or any parts that can be dislodged should never be left unsupervised. This is not a babysitter. This toy, like many toys, should be put in a safe place unless there is direct supervision for play time (this also makes a toy more desirable because it is not always available). I have read the bad reviews on here and I agree that a cat can potentially get into trouble with this toy by getting caught up on the belt, getting wrapped up in the attachment belt, or eating the string. BUT that is the case with most cat toys! If you supervise your animals you will have absolutely no problems. It is when they are bored and alone that they get into the trouble. AGAIN- this is NOT a babysitter and it does NOT take your place for attention. I have seen many animals, not just cats, in the clinic after digesting some well intended toy: cats, dogs, guinea pigs, snakes, birds, reptiles, etc. This toy is much safer than many many toys that I have seen marketed for animals, or small children for that fact. Furthermore, I have bought many expensive motorized toys that didn't last two days before being broken by this group. This toys has been tugged on, slammed into the door and tortured for 6 months by 15 cats and, while it shows a little wear-and-tear, it still works perfectly and they still come running when I bring it out. It is a great buy and I highly recommend it.Read more ›

When I inserted the batteries for this toy and turned it on, our 3 kitten/cats (now a year old), went crazy over it.

Unfortunately, it only lasted 4 times before it died.

My electrical engineer husband thinks it's the internal switch that allows cats to grab the string and then let go. He tried fresh batteries, etc., and the product still works, but not long enough for our kitten/cats to grab it more than one time before it dies again.

Whatever the reason, it's pathetic to find a toy that cats really love that breaks after a few plays or just one.

This would be a most wonderful cat toy if it were more robust.

I second R. Bray's safety warning on this toy. We had the same issue with our cat swallowing the string. When not in use, I would hang the toy on the doorknob inside the closet, then close the closet because one of our cats was determined to mess with the machine even when off. A few days after purchase, I set out the toy, but did not yet turn it on because I was distracted by our second cat asking to be pet. I turned to pet our second kitty and 15 seconds later here a strange smacking noise. I turn, and our 1st cat had unwound the string from the machine (it was stored according to instruction), severed it with his sharp teeth, and swallowed it. I literally turned my back and it was gone. I grabbed our string-eating friend, but by the time I pried his mouth open, the string was gone. This was 5pm on New Year's Eve. Our vet was closed. I ended up calling an emergency vet to see if they were open, they were, but advised I just wait it out. Strings are quite dangerous, the vet said, but chances are the cat would pass it. The vet instructed me to watch the little bugger closely and if he seemed in any discomfort, was not acting like himself, or ate or drank less than usual, then to bring him in. The vet said to check the kitty's poo to make sure it passed. I spent 12 awful days searching that silly cat's poo with latex gloves. Ugh, the stench! We never did find the string. My vet told me he either vomited it up somewhere I couldn't find, or he digested it. Apparently not that unusual.
Anyway, my cats loved this toy, but it was not worth the potential vet bill, the stress, the worry, and searching my kitty's poo for 12 days. The kitty himself didn't care and found the entire poo-searching exercise fascinating. Me, I do not ever want to repeat that experience.
