My 2 year old Platinum Mink Tonkinese female cat is being introduced to the Toy-Go-Round cat exercise wheel. I had to get my kitties accustomed to the way the wheel moves by tempting them to follow treats! (more...)
On this session, she got in a good ten minutes of walking above her normal activity. At the end of the evening she got into the wheel on her own and started walking at a controlled pace and prevented the wheel from rocking!
Not all cats take to running in the wheel immediately. In fact many cats need some type of training to get them started and are motivated in different ways.
I must have a couple of the few cats in the world that have no interest in laser lights to get them running! My two also prefer to ambush their teaser toys instead of following and chasing those.
My youngest here in this video, has never seen anything like this wheel and is not quite comfortable just yet with trotting and running. But within two days of practice, she is becoming more confident and familiar with the way the wheel will move.
I use one hand at all times to have control of the wheel so it doesn't begin to spin or rock back and forth when she stops walking or she begins to feel insecure and will climb out. The treats they eat are 100% protein, no carbs with no additives or preservatives.
