Mouse In The House
The Mouse in the House motorized cat toy is designed for cats to play with when they are alone in the house. Each year millions of cats are left alone locked in homes and apartments for days at a time with no companionship, no activity and no stimulus. In some cases this can lead to separation anxiety, overeating, laziness, obesity and even health and behavior problems.
Mouse in the House can be activated manually by pushing the red button, by either a human or a cat, or by setting the timer to activate toy at set intervals. Upon activation the motorized cat toy emits small chirping sounds to signal the cat that the mouse is coming out. The mouse makes two revolutions of the track and then announces he is done with a humorous cuckoo sound. This sequence can be programmed to occur at intervals of minutes or hours apart.
The motorized mouse operates on a hidden belt with a clutch, if the cat attempts to hold the mouse it will not hurt the mechanism, in fact the clutch will continue to provide resistance, further enhancing the reality of the toy until the cat lets it go on its� way to end the sequence. Should the cat hold the mouse for too long the mechanism will turn itself off. The mouse cannot be removed from the toy by the cat. The Mouse In The House operates on 120V.Measures: 17" x 6" x 6"

My cat loves this toy! It was simple to teach him how to turn it on by himself by putting his paw on the red button several times and he finally got it. I hear it turn on when I'm in another room and I know he's having fun playing with his Mouse in the House cat toy. I had to trim his nails as the mouse didn't last long as the mouse is almost furless. It's such a great toy that I ordered another one to have on hand should the other one ever stop working. Yes, the toy is a bit loud but worth it for the joy it brings to my cat.

I got a Mouse In The House toy for my cat Angie to play with while I was at doctors appointments. It seemed like a good toy that would entice her to play while by herself, but we had lots of trouble with it. First, the toy has a somewhat loud motor, which made Angie take caution approaching the toy. Second, despite following everything in the instructions, I couldn't get the timer to set on the toy. The screen would act like it was ready to set, but then the numbers would start to fade and the screen would be blank. Finally, we couldn't get the red button to work on the toy for Angie to turn on the toy by herself. This toy was a waste of money.

Our 4 cats are in love with our Mouse in the House. They sit entralled waiting for the mouse to emerge and enjoy trying to catch it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Our male Siamese "Tai" can't understand why the mouse cannot be caught. He loves the toy but has not figured out how to press the red start button. His mother "Yeowtu" likes to sit and watch him go for the mouse just before it disappears. So far, she is an observer. It was well worth the money. Most toys are a waste of time as cats prefer boxes.
