The Cat Catcher by Go-Cat will provide endless fun for you and your cat. Cat Catcher has a tiny, cute mouse attached to a flexible wire at one end and the wire is connected to a 6" glitter wand at the other end. The incredibly durable Cat Catcher gives you fantastic action just by turning the handle with your thumb and forefinger. Your feline friend will have loads of fun trying to catch that mousey as it is squirming, skidding, and flopping to get away. No couch potatoes with this toy!

Handcrafted in the USA. Colors may vary.

We suggest to replace your Cat Catcher Mouse when it is worn. Simply unhook from the swivel attachment, discard the worn mouse, and attach the replacement mouse onto the swivel.

My cat is obsessed with this toy!

Comments about Go-Cat Cat Catcher:

My cat loves to play with this toy. She plays endlessly with the toy with or without me! This toy came in my VetPetBox. I'm now looking for new and different replacements for the mouse.

    Comments about Go-Cat Cat Catcher:

    I've got two one year old cats who were primarily playing with this toy. I bought the wand and two replacement toys. The cats had a good time playing with the toy for the first few days and the original mouse was holding up well. The wire the mouse was on got a little bent after one of my boys chewed on it, but not too bad. It didn't seem to compromise the integrity of the wire and the toy was still perfectly usable. We were all pretty happy with the new toy until the third play session, when Sir Percival the Terrible had managed to catch the mouse and was attempting to run off with it. Apparently the force from his little body was just too much for the wand, and the red cap at the very tip of the wand just came clean off. I guess I should've waited on ordering replacement toys...

      Comments about Go-Cat Cat Catcher:

      I couldn't be happier with this purchase because my both cats love it! I was quite skeptic ordering this toy.
      I didn't believe I could make my two adorable cats enjoy any more toys. One of them likes to chase mice and birds outside, another one is plain lazy, and wants to eat and sleep all the time.
      But once I opened the package, they were all over it! We love, love this magic GO-CAT CAT CATCHER!

      I believe this was made with love. Very pleasant to look at and to hold, and the package itself has all the cute pics, descriptions, references. Made in USA too. Thank you, GO-CAT!

      Whenever I have to lure them in from the porch, this does the trick. Only drawback is I sometimes find the wand in my bed--when they're playing, they'll drag it anywhere.

      Comments about Go-Cat Cat Catcher:

      I found out that this toy works a lot better when taken off of the rod. We have two rescue kittens (well, now they are over a year old) and they absolutely LOVE picking up the mouse and trotting off with it like they have a real mouse! The one cat (we believe to be a Maine Coon mix) can't wait for special play time when I will pick up the mouse and throw it and he races after it and brings it back to me, drops it on the floor (or if my slippers are available by me, insists on hiding it in them) and meows for me to toss it again. It's so adorable! The only thing I dislike about these mice is they don't last very long. Other than that, it's purr-fect for our cats!

        Comments about Go-Cat Cat Catcher:

        Summary at the bottom if you need a TL;DR.

        My two boys love toys like these, so seeing this advertised as very sturdy and then reading reviews backing that claim I had to have it. Well, sad to say that my cats managed to break it, but it did last a heck of a lot longer than every other toy of this type that I have tried.

        First thing they managed to do was completely detach the cord from the stick within the first play session. It was not attached very well, but taping it back on sufficed and it didn't come back off after (and boy did they try, they love the crinkly sound of the tape).

        After the first play session I decided to attached the toy to their kitty tower so they could play with it constantly and the bigger cat was starting to gain too much weight so I needed him to be more playful like the smaller cat. I attached it by using the rope that they had detached from the tower and twisted the rope and stick together (stick is very flexible), then tied it off. This worked out very well and they quite enjoyed trying to climb the tower and get to the toy at different angles or carrying it up the tower.

        Next, after about 2 weeks, they managed to remove the mouse while I was at work. I'm not sure quite how they did it because the connector clasp was still attached. Perhaps they just bent the connector in with their teeth and the mouse came loose? I still haven't found the mouse, so I have no idea what the state of that is in currently, but it did seem to hold together very well and the last time I had seen it the only issue was a single thread was starting to come unraveled.

        They still had a lot of fun playing with the wire, so I left the stick and wire attached to their tower. After a few more weeks I had to remove it because they were bending the wire up so bad I was afraid they might manage to break it off and swallow it. If it can be done they could do it and I didn't want to wait to find out if it could be done.

        Summary:
        This toy is definitely a lot sturdier than other toys of this type. The stick is flexible but not weak, the wire is solid, and the toy seemed to be well made. You may need to tape the tip of the stick where it connects to the wire because that was not connected well. If your cats are a little rough on toys and normal ones are just not up for the task, this is a definite buy 'n' try. However, my boys still managed to break it within about a month.

        I opted for 4 stars because I believe this toy is above average and would recommend it to most people, despite what I experienced with it. Before these two, I have never nor witnessed cats that were so talented at breaking their toys, so I'm sure for most people this toy would be great.

            Comments about Go-Cat Cat Catcher:

            My 5 month old cat goes wild for this toy. When I use a clicker to signal him that it's playtime w/this particular toy, he comes running from anywhere in the house. When he's caught it, and has it in his mouth, he enjoys it when I tug slightly, as if it's trying to get away. After 2 or 3 play sessions per day for 4 wks, the mouse finally broke off the end of the wand's wire. My local pet stores are sold out of this model, so it's good to see the company sells replacement mice to attach to the end of the wand. I would caution owners to not tug too hard when it's in the cats' mouth, as my cat holds on so tightly, that if I pull too hard, the wire can cut his gums.

              Comments about Go-Cat Cat Catcher:

              This quickly became a favorite with my six-month old kittens, perhaps because it looks like a real mouse. It's taken a beating but hasn't broken yet, thanks to use of wire instead of string to attach mouse to wand.
