I gave it a 4 because its expensive, as for the product my cats like it, I leave treats and food in the container for whenever they want to play with it, my siamese mix does it the most and is the best at figuring it out.
The materials used to make this toy are great. The problem is the rope is extremely short to drag this around for your cat to chase. I'm 5'8 when I'm standing up I have to hold my arm straight down my body for the squirrel to touch the floor, if my 18 pound cat does decide he wants to attack there's a pretty good chance my foot will be an inoccent victim as the toy doesn't have enough rope to go anywhere If the rope was longer this would be a 5 star product
I was going to give this product four stars, but that would only be because I didn't make the best purchase decision for my cats. I'm going to give it five stars because it's a really nice product that will probably last forever and is exactly as described. My cats would likely rate it four stars, though, because that crackling sound is pretty loud (but they're also big cats). My cats like laying (and chewing, unfortunately) paper and plastic, so I thought I could substitute my plastic and paper for this tube that could simulate the destruction of my stuff. It's just too loud for them. I introduced my three cats to it, my brave one shot through it first, and then they all looked at me like I had completely betrayed them. Now, a couple of weeks later, their shell-shock from that sound has subsided, so they all smell it, rub it, and occasionally even crawl through it. My most creative cat drops mice in the top hole and tries to fish them out of the sides, which he seems to enjoy. If I was creating the perfect product, this tube would have a softer crinkly sound, which seems like an absurdly picky thing to say, but there it is!
