Kitty Chase is a toy for cats of all sizes and ages. It features two durable imitation butterflies connected to a base that'll sit on the floor or an alternative base that will attach to any glass surface ( like a door ). The butterflies will "fly" around and your cat will have fun exercising their natural feline hunting instincts as they bat at and chase the critters. As the butterflies move, they'll even make noise that sounds like that made by real butterflies outdoors.
The cost of Kitty Chase is $14.99 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Kitty Chase by paying an extra fee of $0.00 for a total price of $19.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at mykittychase.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Kitty Chase and has taken down the website. Kitty Chase may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
Before you start using this toy, you'll need to decide whether to start with it on the ground or attached to a glass surface, such as a door or window. If you want the toy to rest on the ground as your cat plays, attach the blue bottom with attached butterflies to the larger brown base without a suction cup. Alternatively, if you want to go with the glass surface, attach the rest of the toy to the smaller base that does have a suction cup.
Depending on the base you've chosen, place the toy on the floor ( or ground, if you're outdoors ) or use the suction cup to attach it to your chosen glass surface. If you want the toy's butterflies to fly in sequence, slide the small blue connector wrapped around both of them up to the top of the wires. To get the butterflies to chase each other, simply slide the small blue connector down.
On the blue part of your device, you'll find a small black "Power" button that you'll need to flick on. Once you do so, your butterflies will start to move in your chosen pattern, making realistic butterfly noises as they move.
After you've turned Kitty Chase on, your cat will likely be attracted by the sound almost instantly, and they may find the toy's bright colors attractive, too. If not, you'll need to call the cat over and show them how to bat at the butterflies yourself. You could also rub some catnip on the toy to make it even more enticing.
Both the connectors and the butterflies used to make up each Kitty Chase are durable, so they'll be able to withstand almost any tug, cuff, or chew from the most enthusiastic cat.
The base that sits on the floor is sturdy, even though it flutters like a butterfly, so regardless of how strong your cat is, they'll be unlikely to knock this toy over. If the smaller base is being used on a glass surface, it'll hold tightly to that surface without falling off under almost any circumstances.
Not only do the butterflies attached to this toy sound like real ones when they move, they look pretty real, too. They'll also move in a couple of the same ways that butterflies move outdoors—either flying alongside or chasing each other.
The butterflies attached to each Kitty Chase won't just move from side to side. They'll travel in a full 360-degree circle as your cat chases them around and around.
As long as the cats get along fairly well, two to five cats will be able to play with this toy at the same time. They may find it challenging to see who can grab a butterfly first, or if there are more than two playing, who can get their paws on one at all.
Cats have a natural instinct to hunt, and playing with Kitty Chase will allow them to exercise this instinct by hunting the butterflies. Therefore, they won't choose to "hunt" your toilet paper or lace drapes instead, or frequently drop a mouse that they've caught outside at your feet.
Indoor cats, especially older ones, tend to get lazy and may start to pack on the pounds. Fortunately, this interactive toy will give them some exercise right in the living room ( or kitchen, or bedroom ) so they'll have a better chance of remaining healthy and svelte.
If your cat does go outdoors sometimes, this toy isn't just an indoor one. You can place it on some flat ground in the same way you'd place it on a floor indoors, or attach it to the outside of a glass door or window. Keeping the toy near you may cause your cat to play close by instead of venturing into the neighbor's flowerbed!
Kids will likely find watching a cat or a group of cats play with Kitty Chase incredibly entertaining, and the youngest ones may want to join in. Even adults, after a long day at work or doing chores at home, will find it uplifting to watch the cat romp around instead of snoozing.
You'll need batteries to run this device, and none are included, so you'll have to get the first set yourself. Plus, if your cat frequently plays with the toy, you'll need to regularly obtain replacements from a store or online.
If you're busy on a particular day, you won't need to spend time holding the end of a string or tossing a small toy to your cat repeatedly. Once Kitty Chase is powered up, the cat will be able to play for up to hours on their own.
