How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Place on Floor

    To get your cat interested in the Flippity Fish, the first thing you'll need to do is place it on the floor near your cat. Once your cat sees the new toy, they may come right over to investigate, especially since it so closely resembles a real fish. If not, you can call them over, and if they're still unresponsive, you can even carry them over and place them beside the toy.

  2. Watch Cat Play

    As this toy's motion sensor senses that your cat is moving nearby, the toy will begin to flop around in the same way as a real fish would. To make things even more interesting for the cat, its tail will move at alternating fast and slow speeds. When your cat picks up on this flopping activity, their hunting instincts will likely be activated almost immediately, and they'll start batting the toy. If not, you can bat the toy a few times yourself in order to encourage them to get started.

  3. Store or Leave in Place

    Once your cat decides they're done with this toy for the time being, and walks away, the toy will automatically detect the lack of motion and turn off. Following that, you can either leave the toy where it is so your cat can come back and find it, or store it in a safe place.


  • Rechargeable

    The Flippity Fish contains a rechargeable battery, which means you won't have to worry about keeping spare batteries on hand to add to it. When the toy needs to be charged, all you'll need to do is use the included USB cable to plug it into a digital device for recharging. It's specified that one charge may last for multiple days.

  • Durable and Non-toxic

    This toy is made from durable material that can withstand aggressive chewing, so even if your cat likes to attack their toys, they likely won't be able to destroy this one. The material is also non-toxic, which means that chewing on it won't cause your cat to become ill.

  • Machine Washable Cover

    If you remove the inner mechanical parts from the inside of your Flippity Fish, you'll be able to wash the fabric cover in your washing machine. This may come in handy if cat food or waste happens to end up on the toy, or if it just becomes excessively slobbery. If you don't have a washing machine, you can also wash the cover in your sink with soap and water.

  • Catnip Pouch Inside

    To add to the fun of this toy, each one actually has a pouch inside that's meant to be filled with catnip, if you like to give this treat to your cat. While it's not necessary that you fill the pouch, the smell of catnip may aid with your cat's initial attraction to the toy. Similarly, it may keep them interested in it for longer than they otherwise would be.

  • Fishing Pole Included

    Another way to add some more excitement to your cat's life, when it comes to this toy, is to add the included fishing pole. After you attach this pole to the toy, you'll be able to dangle the toy in front of your cat, or run it along the floor, and have them try to catch it. This game can be especially fun for one or more small children to play with one or more cats.

Positive Points

  • For Cats of All Ages, Sizes

    Cats of all ages and sizes—even kittens and senior cats—can enjoy playing with this interactive toy. The toy isn't so big that it'll overwhelm kittens, but it's big enough that it'll seem like an exciting piece of prey to a burly, athletic tomcat. Kittens and younger cats may dive at it super-quickly, while senior cats may bat at it more lazily, but all cats should be able to have fun with it in their own way. If you've got multiple cats, and they get along, they may even want to play with this toy together.

  • Can Aid With Weight Loss

    Some cats can get fat very quickly, especially aging cats that are living in small apartments with busy owners who may not have a lot of time to play with them. Fortunately, if your cat is overweight, they may be able to shed some pounds by playing with a Flippity Fish. Once you introduce them to the toy's flopping action, they can play with it alone while you get things done, instead of just lying on the couch (or snacking). Even if your cat's not overweight yet, getting them into a regular play routine can help prevent future weight problems.

  • Makes a Great Gift

    A Flippity Fish makes a great gift for anyone who's a cat lover and has at least one cat, due to its widespread appeal among felines of different sizes, ages, and breeds. To make this gift even better, you might want to add a small bag of catnip to the package, so the recipient can add it to the toy's catnip pouch. This gift idea is especially ideal for seniors who may be bored during the day, as watching a cat play with this flopping toy will almost certainly cure boredom.

Negative Points

  • USB Charging Port Required

    Most people have access to a USB port these days, but if you don't have a digital device with a USB port, you may find it difficult to recharge this toy. It can only be charged via the included USB cable, so you'll either have to obtain a digital device for that purpose or find a friend with an available USB port. To better suit some seniors and anyone else without a computer, it would be beneficial if the toy could also be plugged into wall outlets for recharging.

  • Humans May Activate Sensor

    The Flippity Fish's motion sensor likely isn't smart enough to distinguish between a cat's motion and a human's motion. As a result, if you go near the toy, it'll probably start flopping around and making noise, as it would if your cat were to approach. This could become annoying, especially since there's no way to turn the motion sensor off, aside from removing the toy's inner mechanical parts altogether.
