Review 1 of the Bergan Turbo Scratcher Cat Toy
Sigh. Cats are so picky. You never know what they’re going to like. If I had a nickel for every toy I have purchased that they never gave a second glance…
One trick I have learned is not to make a huge fuss over a new toy. They seem to like to discover things on their own, so when I bring a new toy home, I just set it on the floor and walk away. Don’t even act like it’s for them. I find that they respond better that way. One of my cats loves this thing and the other won’t even look at it. I rate it a 5 because the cat that does like it goes crazy for it, and I don’t even use catnip. He loves scratching on it, swatting the little ball around and he even falls asleep on it sometimes. Too cute! I have bare floors, but I don’t have a problem with the toy sliding around, because my cat stands on the outside of the toy and it rests against his hind paws as he scratches with his front paws. He figured it out on his own and he doesn’t have any trouble with it.
Also, make sure you turn the refill over and use the other side as well.
Review 2 of the Bergan Turbo Scratcher Cat Toy
I have two kittens which are spoiled rotten and have more toys than they can ever wish for. This is by far one of their favorites. They love the moving ball and use the center scratch area often (keeps them off the furniture and other areas.) I know they play with it daily. Very reasonably priced and definitely a must for cats!!
Review 3 of the Bergan Turbo Scratcher Cat Toy
Our neighbor gave us this toy for Christmas and our younger feline has been entertained almost non-stop ever since.
We have and have had several other felines, canines and equines, (previously also have had tarantulas, turtles, parakeets, zebra finches, pigeons, chickens, pheasants, rabbits, lizards, ant farms, etc., not to mention human younglings, also one particular precocious horned toad named Bob), and in our expeience, the only two real questions for a pet toy are: Does it truly entertain? AND does it hold up to the entertainment?
This toy is awesome on both counts. Our two cats play it like tetherball or racquetball, but mostly the younger one entertains himself, even dragging some of his more mobile toys onto it (hoping they will somehow learn from it?) Then, having tired himself out he drapes himself across it in sleep… Only to start this series of events all over again at 2:00 a.m. (Hint: At night put it where he/she can’t reach it if you want an uninterrrupted night’s sleep.)
He can’t strip it of any feathers or fuzzies, or bat it semi-permanently under the fridge. He can’t run out the batteries and doesn’t tire of its full potential gamut, as it just gets more challenging to him the more he learns.
And it’s just as entertaining for us to watch the play!
Plus it’s a great deal. The best cat toy we’ve ever seen/ bought/ imagined/ been given so far in a combined some 70 years of experience with cat friendship. Buy it… if you’re a cat person AT ALL (and who isn’t?… don’t answer that!) then you won’t regret it! EVER! Mike & Michele
