About Pet Zone
The Pet Zone product line features a variety of high quality toys, accessories, feeding solutions, and waste management solutions designed to awaken a pet’s natural instincts at affordable prices. The essence of this is captured in the Pet Zone Fly By Spinner Toy.
The Importance of Play
Cats need mental stimulation from play to keep from being bored and to fulfill their hunting instincts.
Physical activity from play acts as a workout, keeping cats physically fit and enriches the pet’s quality of life and fosters a healthy relationship between the pet and their parents.
Cats sleep most of the day, about 16 hours. When they are awake they need to move around and exercise. In the wild, cats get their physical exercise from hunting. Inside cats receive their exercise from playing with toys that simulate prey. Play provides more than just exercise. Play also relieves anxiety, stress, and boredom. When indoor cats do not have toys to play with, that is when they supplement their playful instincts with anything they can find around the house; curtains, toes, shoe laces, etc.

When I put this toy in front of him, I did not expect the reaction I got.
WHAT IS THIS TOY LIKE?
The toy has a little plastic base on it with a circle on top. This circle goes around but has a wire attached to it. On the end of the wire is a butterfly. The butterfly is made of sheet plastic. Due to a coil at the bottom of the wire, the butterfly bounces as the disc on the base goes around and around.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO OPERATE THE TOY?
This toy takes 1 AAA battery which does NOT come with the toy.
HOW DID OUR CAT REACT?
At first our cat jumped on the toy and tried to play with it, knocking it over. Then he pounced in it. Surely this was a hit.
Then he did something which was so odd that we sat there laughing. He began to watch the butterfly go around and around and around and his head began to go around and around until he entered into what resembled a hypnotic state. He flopped over and closed his eyes and laid there with his paw out as a half hearted attempt to act like he was active, but like he was out cold.
The next day I tried it again. He was ready to go out, but I turned on the toy. Again, he began to watch it go around and around and his head began to bob up and down and his eyes began to get heavy. He flopped over on his side and acted like he was dead for a while. His paw was extended as if he was showing that he had an intention in mind but was too sleepy to do anything about it.
After several experiences like this, I was ready to give this toy a 1 star review (unless you are into training Manchurian Candidate kitties) but then I began to notice something happening.
Our cat began to train himself how to not watch the butterfly go around but to stand there and play with it without tipping it over. He has gotten the rhythm down pretty well and like jumping rope, if you have ever seen the groups on the playground doing it, he has gotten the hang of it and is playing with it like a lost art.
THE BOTTOM LINE
At first this hypnotized our cat repeatedly making us think it was a lost cause, but our cat rose to the challenge as he figured out how to play with this butterfly toy without tipping it over and making it malfunction. He likes to stand there and bat it like a ball as it goes by. When he gets tired of it, he sticks his paw forward and knocks it over and walks away. When he wants to play with it, he stands next to it and meows. It does take a few " hypnotic" episodes before he can play though.
I wonder if there is any valuable use for a hypnotized cat..
I give this four stars but it is more like a 3 and a half. I wish the base was a bit sturdier and did not tip over quite as easily.
He knocks it over a lot, but it has a great feature that stops the motor when it senses resistance so the motor won't burn itself out.
The butterfly holds up surprisingly well to chewing, but inevitably comes off. That's when I found that they find the wire just as entertaining! It is possible to put the butterfly back on, but it keeps falling off. I'm still looking for a better solution. You can also tie a ribbon to the wire for variety.
Be aware of the plastic butterfly body when it comes off--it will break into two choking-hazard size pieces.
So yes, there are a few flaws to this toy, but the toy's concept is so amazing that it makes up for these shortfalls. I bought 3 for my cats and 2 for my brothers' cat's!
Perhaps if you have more aggressive cats, you will need to monitor their playtime with this rather than just turning it on and walking away.
Overall - very clever and a great price!
UPDATE: I complained to Amazon and they sent a replacement for free. Same general outcome. Bye bye butterfly in no time at all. She didn't break the wire off on the second one. I did figure out a way to get the wire back on the other one. And I bought some garden ornament butterflies that someone else recommended in a review. However, they are a bit too heavy, so when I can get them to stay on, they don't have the same motion.... and eventually, they come off. So basically, I have two of these sad toys. Very frustrating because it's such a good idea, but the execution is just terrible.
