One Fast Cat Exercise Wheel: If you have more money to invest, and are adventurous, you might want to try this fantastic exercise wheel. Granted, it’s pretty expensive at close to $600 and requires assembly, but it can be the best thing you can do for your cat. Some cats are naturals for it, and others will need to be trained to run on it, and it may even take up to a month. Reportedly high-energy breeds like Bengals and Sphynx take to very well, but any other cat from Persians to Tabbys like to run on it. For cats that do take to this it’s a super healthy calorie burning activity. It’s wonderful fun and helps your cat stay happy, avoid boredom or even anxiety and excessive energy which can end up being manifested in unwanted and even dangerous, possibly damaging behaviors such as jumping on furniture, scratching, racing, or getting in trouble. This wheel is cat powered, so no electricity is involved. Cats tend to go on it on their own anytime they feel, usually a few times during the day. Just like their owners, inactive cats can easily gain weight, which shortens their lives. This is a very simple and effective device which helps keep your dear cat svelte at a normal healthy weight thus extending their life and improving their health.

Either way due to free shipping and free returns, and a free return label included, you take no risk, and your cat will probably love you so much it will lick your face!
