Cat Exercise Wheel — If it's good enough for me, why not Gray Cat?

Constant readers know that's I've used a bespoke treadmill workspace since 2006, with very pleasing — at least for me — results.

Now comes this Toy-Go-Round Cat Exercise Wheel.

The YouTube caption: "This video is to demonstrate one way to help get the cat used to the wheel. This was the first time this kitten had been on a wheel. Eventually the cat gets used to the wheel and will run on it without coaxing."




Gray Cat?

Using a Bengal Cat in the film was a smart advertising move ;)

Somehow, I think cats are smarter than hamsters. I'm not sure why the little critters run, perhaps because they are cooped up and have a natural instinct to elude predators. Cats, on the other hand, run to capture prey, and conserve energy the rest of the time. Once kitty figures out that it's a futile effort on the wheel, it's game over.

Teach GC to lap you! Use what's in the room!

Cost, shipping - outrageous. But that's not why I think you shouldn't. As long as GC is an outdoor/indoor kind of kitty, she's getting plenty of exercise. If the day came when she had to be permanently inside (for whatever reason), then something like that, maybe. But some cats never EVER take to exercise equipment, so you couldn't be sure she'd want to even then. My cat before the two present ones was a little 6-pound tortoiseshell stray who'd lived on the street her whole life, and when she became my adopted indoors-only she just naturally started running The Motley (her name) 500 - loops around and around the house at top speed - every night before bed. She didn't need no stinkin' exercise wheel. I have faith that GC will tell you what she needs.

$100 for shipping? 33% shipping cost added? No, Joe, no.

$300 plus shipping and taxes for this eyesore? NO. Howabout a diy?
