Exercise Wheel For Cats

Exercise Wheel For Cats If you have a fat cat, a stationary exercise wheel might be just the thing. Or it might not. But if the One Fast Cat wheel has cats scratching their heads and wondering what the heck it is, the new product has many human believers. Creator Sean Farley's Kickstarter campaign has raised over $250,000, more than $200,000 over his goal.

On his website, Farley notes that cats are sprinters and use short bursts of energy to hunt. The wheel might appeal to that short burst of energy instinct. But with nothing to hunt, many cats might wonder what's the point. Attaching a dangling toy to the top of the wheel might make it more interesting.

The wheel is four feet wide and is made of recycled plastic. The run surface is closed cell EVA foam that lets cats run naturally, using their claws for safe footing. It's available online from Farley's Kickstarter website for $199, including shipping.
