HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) -- For all you cat lovers out there, the Cat's Meow is a battery operated chase toy that resembles putting your hand under a sheet but without the effort. A hook attaches to a battery operated base and then a yellow canvas sheet goes over top. With just the touch of a button, the hook slides under the sheet, circling around and reversing for cats to watch and chase.
Ranae Spiers has two cats, MeMeow and D-T, which stands for double trouble. She was excited to test it out. She recorded her cats over several days to see how they would react to it. D-T absolutely loved it. D-T would sit and watch it for long periods of time and then would chase after it, especially after Ranae made the hook stick out from under the sheet and even more so when she decided to attach a feather to the end. D-T seemed to really enjoy it, and so did two of her dogs.
MeMeow was more afraid of it, and you can imagine, not all cats are going to like it.
Ranae said she would absolutely buy it. She thought it could be improved if you added a remote control with it. I also noticed her cat's claws would get stuck on the yellow canvas, but just for a quick second, not enough to stop the hook from circling.
We found the Cat's Meow online, two for $19.95. Batteries are not included.
