Tower of Tracks Solo Flight

Micah:  Whoa, where did this come from? 

Rusty:  I don't know.  It just appeared.  I'll bet Jan put it here.  

Taylor:  She said it's a Petstages Tower of Tracks and left it here.  The box says it's 3 levels for 3 times the fun.  What fun?  I don't see it having any fun.

Percy:  Yes, it just sits there.  I don't see anywhere to plug it in.  What do you think we're supposed to do with it?

Taylor:  I think we're supposed to keep an eye on it.  In case it wants to run away.

Cyndi:  What do you think would happen if you touch one of those balls?

Taylor.  I don't know.  They look so tempting but Jan didn't say we can play with it.

Percy:  When did we ever listen to Jan?

Rusty:  You're right.  We can't eat it.  Perhaps we can play with it.  You go first, Taylor.

Taylor:  I'm not too sure about this.  I just know we're going to get into trouble if we touch this thing.

Percy:  Jan actually didn't think we older cats would be interested in playing with this much, so she mainly wanted us to review it to entertain Taylor.  Chewy lists several key benefits -

  •    Durable toy consisting of three levels of exciting play, each level includes its own circular track and ball.
  •     Spinning and rotating action of the balls entices cats to play.
  •     Great fun for a single cat or multiple cats.
  •     Measures 10" diameter x 5" high.

Cyndi:  Taylor is nervous about trying new things so it took her a day or two to get brave enough to hit a ball.  Once she did, she was hooked.

Rusty:  Now we hear Taylor playing with it at odd hours.  The rest of us are a bit ho-hum about toys any more, but Taylor is only a year old.

Taylor:  The Petstages Tower of Tracks has non-skid pads at the bottom.  However, it flew off the counter between the washer and dryer the other day when I was playing with it, so evidently it could use a bit more anchoring.  

Micah:  It sits on the floor now, so Taylor can play with it but it won't try another solo flight.  We hope Jan remembers it's there so she doesn't take a flight of her own.  She doesn't have an aviator license.

Update:  Last night Jan put the tower on a bureau in the bedroom so she wouldn't trip over it.  Taylor will not go into the living room, for reason unknown, so the choices are kitchen and bedroom.  This morning Taylor was playing with it - not rough and tough - and it started sliding.  A minute later Jan heard the crash as it hit the floor.  The top track popped off.  She picked up the ball and put the track back together.   She wishes it had bigger grips on the bottom but suspects it might not help in the winter when this old house is cold since others have not reported having this problem.

We were not paid for this review, but the tower was provided by Chewy. Chewy is not responsible for the content.

  2. You kitties are so lucky - that looks like fun!

  3. Well, htat might be a fun toy. You were pretty lucky to get it to test.

  6. Wow, I love your new toy!!! You can have so much fun with it for a long time!!! Have a great day:)

  7. Our kitty friend would love that thing

  8. I've been thinking of finding a toy that Chuck and Angel can play by themselves...something with action! This may just fit the bill, and I'd leave it on the floor. Thanks for the review

  9. OMC OMC what a FUN toy fur you kitties. we are SURE that it will give HOURS of FUN.

  10. Nice review. My cats are mad at me for not choosing this, I got a litter genie instead.

  11. We saw that toy, but we do not play with other track toys so mom did not get it.

  12. I saw that toy and considered getting it for Purrseidon, but she hasn't been playing with her other balls as much in the past few months. Perhaps it is an age thing. I knew that M, who is older, wouldn't be interested, since he has never shown an interest in balls of any sort.

  13. wow you guys haz lots of funs!! You better keep playing with it so it doesn't run away. Katie Mom am kicking herself that she didn't open the last Chewy email and ask for this toy to review! Her saw it at Petsmart and wished we had the moneys to gets one for us kitties...

    Miss Peach who am bored and needs a toy.

  14. Oh, Brian, you are one beautiful kitty. And that SMILE...would melt a Doberman's heart.
    Love, Loulou

  15. It looks like a lot of fun. We find most toys need bigger suction cups around here too.

  16. Wow! I think my kitty cousins, Maddie and Tibie, would love this toy! I would like it too, but I'm afraid I would just chew it up to get the squeaky balls out.

  17. That looks pawsome Taylor, enjoy!

  18. My power pushers would send this skidding, for sure. But keeping it on a rug on the floor might help. They do love a good ball toy.

  19. We know our furbrer Groucho would have loved that, he would try to catch the hot wheel cars as they ran over the tracks...sheesh, that was eons ago...

    Not sure if we would enjoy it...maybe a bit but we like to take things to play with that we can bite, carry in our mouth or roll on...


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
