My cat liked it a lot for a few weeks. But now has tired of it. The problem is that as soon as she catches it, it flips onto its side and no longer tries to escape. I understand that's inherent in the design of the product, but it does mean she no longer chases it - just watches it run around now for a while, then walks off.
Nice but broke after limited use.
My cats enjoyed it. Regrettably, it broke after about a month of light use. Replacing batteries didn’t fix it. It appears that the build quality is not very good.
The battery seems to have died after a few weeks
I wish these were not so pricey. My cats love them! The mouse stops and then starts when the cat touches him. Interactive great!!
Cat No interest
My two very playful cats just stared at it and watched it but no interest in playing with it. I think the noise it makes is not realistic and they know it’s fake. I have a cat that chases a string or ribbon all day with intensity like it’s a real snake.
the cats like it
it is VERY cute! I had a little trouble at first as the instructions on back didn't jibe with the real thing, but after a phone call, it has worked fabulously.
My cat loves this mouse all she had to do was hit it and was able to chase it.
Very Realistic for the cats
My cats loved this mouse. The only problem with it is that it’s not waterproof. Sadly my female cat decided to drown the mouse in the water fountain. It was the perfect toy for her though so I did buy another one. This time i’ll make sure to keep it in a room that is not accessible to water.
My cats love it
My two Bengals love it. Bonnie likes to pounce on it and Clyde keeps grabbing its tail.
My kitten Chester loves this toy! At first he was afraid of it. But now he's been chasing it for hours.
Cats Love them
cats really enjoyed them.
thank goodness I found this toy You did a great job!!
Emmatu is so interested in Hexmouse and , as my wife implies, she's not sure who is enjoying it more...me or Emmatu. It is so satisfying to see her having such a good time...
Great toy that fascinates my cat.....she loves playing with it.
Needed adjustment to work properly
It didn't work properly out of the box. Once I bent the contacts to make a better connection, it worked fine.
My kitten love it to death, the other cats like to play when the kitten gets tired.
Our cats love to chase it up and down the hallway, does not work on carpets. Battery life is pretty good.
The cats tend to catch and hide the mouse.
Our original mouse has had an ear chewed off, the touch and move is what my cats love best, they play till they get tired and come back hours latter to do it again.
Shows promise but dissappointed, maybe defective?
Can't figure out if my toy is defective or not - in either mode it seems to stop doing anything pretty quickly and no amount of play by the cats will wake it up. But they are interested while it is moving. And then it stops and wont start again.
My kitty adores this toy! Plays with it all the time! Love it!!
How to change batteries?
How do i change the batteries in this thing? It operares very erratically but my cat likes it.
Like many other reviewers here, mine also stopped working after a short while. I got it to work again by scraping the battery connectors and bending the connectors to apply more pressure on the batteries. It now works reliably.
kitties really loves this toy BUT it went out quickly.
It would be a great product if it lasted more than a couple of days.
I bought two of them, and I bought extra batteries. My cats loved them, but unfortunately, they both stopped working after a couple of days, even after changing the batteries. There must be a problem with the connections.
Cheaply made, broke in first ten minutes.
I bought it and my cats loved it for about ten minutes and then it started only responding to one of the remote buttons. When I use the right remote button it spins around in circles in place, but when I use the left button it just slightly moves and then stops. Tried changing the batteries, checking the axle for debris, checking the battery contacts, nothing works. I'm frustrated I spent money on something so poorly made that it broke after ten minutes of use.
Awesome Toy to tire out your Nonstop Cornish Rex
Indy n Nyco Cornish Rex Cats, Brothers, today is there 5th Birthday and they are Non stop Action.
A Co worker mentioned the Hex Bug Mouse we got 2 of them and the Hexbug 3 of them.
Wow they played for hours even after catching the Mouse Nyco would bring it and sit by my feet and wait with it in his mouth till I put my hand out he would drop it in my hand u could hear purring then he rubbed up against me so proud then turned it back on oh it was on.
Indy loves both bug and mouse and goes nuts.
Here him purring and playing at sametime.
Best Toys ever for a Cornish Rex wish the batteries would last longer as cheaper to buy another mouse then the battery. .for nonstop cats they outlasted the mice and the bugs.
But they slept like rocks at night and all I want to say Get one for your Cornish Rex they will love it.
Doesn't interest a cat
Cat had zero interest in this. He just stared at it annoyed for ten minutes and then walked away. Save your money.
Great for the small amount of life span need lots of BATTERY "hex"BATTERS THAT ARE EXPENSIVE AND THE TOY TOES NOT OFTEN SURVIVE BATTERY CHANGE
Does not last very long goes through batters very fast and DO NOT LAST MORE THAN ONE BATTERY CHANGE IF AT ALL.
Cute, but drains batteries fast
My cat LOVED this toy. Unfortunately, the batteries didn't last long.
Good but doesn't last
My cat loved this! So much so that I bought 2! However, after 2 battery switches, both mice just died. It seems like the batteries aren't connecting anymore. There's some problem with the fitting. Same problem in both mice. So in summary: there's some internal cheap construction so this doesn't last that long.
