My kittens have all kinds of toys, some of which I spent much more money on, but these are by far their favourite. I have hardwood/tile floors through the house, so the springs roll/bounce/skitter satisfyingly. They are a perfect size and shape for the kittens to pick them up in their mouths or their claws to throw them around, so they can play by themselves easily. They do get lost in small spaces easily - every day I am retrieving them from under the fridge, the TV cabinet, the computer desk... I thought they would need frequent checks for chew damage, but I'm finding they stand up to kitten chewing much better than I would have expected. In conclusion, I am ordering a second packet of these!
These are such a simple idea, but my kitten absolutely loves them. She hasn't stopped playing with them since we got them, its the one toy I can leave out all the time and don't need to rotate to keep her interested. Safe enough that I feel confident leaving them out for her to play with when i'm at work too. Brilliant cat toy!
I am back to order the third packet of these. Our kittens have only been here 15 weeks...before they arrived, having been owned been cats before, we thought we knew what they'd want. There are three of them, so we got one of each toy for each kitten, figuring that would be fine. We bought the huge tree/gym thing. Scratching posts galore. Squeaky mice. The odd catnip toy. They gave them all a cursory glance, maybe a paw-pat here and there, but on the whole it was all about the boxes the stuff came in (and oh, there was so much stuff...). I watch a live kitten cam in Canada and saw that their kittens were playing with these springs. As everybody else has said, they looked dangerous to me, but here were really tiny kittens having a ball with them, so I decided to give them a go...our kittens are MAD about these springs! They carry them around in their mouths and growl if anybody comes near them. They bat them up and down the kitchen, and throw them in the air. All of the other toys have been put into the toy box and barely touched since the springs arrived in the house. The only problem is that they are SO possessive that they keep hiding them, and hiding them well; they're not allowed outside so we know that there are 20 of them secreted so well around the house but we can't find them. So here I am again, buying more. And as long as there are paws thundering around the house, no doubt I will be back again and again.
