Product Review – Bergan Turbo Scratcher Cat Toy
This week’s product review is the Bergan Turbo Scratcher Cat Toy. It is a blue, round toy, with cardboard in the middle and a track around the outside of it for a ping pong ball to roll around in.
The idea is that if your cat doesn’t like to use a scratching post, sisal rope scratcher, or any other kind of scratcher, they may use the cardboard as a scratcher/claw sharpener.
The cat is supposed to bat the ball around the track and is supposed to have hours of fun playing with this toy.
At first, Isis wasn’t into the cardboard, but we took some catnip and rubbed it into the cardboard, this caused her to scratch and bite at it, so that did the job well.
She will sometimes bat at the ball in the track, other times it seems to freak her out. If we play with it, with her, she will get into it for a while, but grows tired of it sooner rather than later.
Final Verdict: This one is a toss up. While Isis does play with it and does use it as a scratcher (she uses her kitty condo and sisal scratcher as well), she wasn’t too keen on the ball in the track. I would recommend it for younger cats who are just learning that the furniture is not their playground/scratching posts. Also cats who like to chase things will love the ball in the track. Isis does like it, just not as much as I hoped. Slight recommendation.
You can buy the toy here.
