National Geographic™ Electronic Caterpillar Cat Toy is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slightly troublesome but worth it! There are pros and cons but overall I love this toy! Pros: - It keeps my cats' attention for long periods of time - Its movements are life-like - Its ability to self-correct (Roomba-style) and find its way out of tight corners keeps the game going and keeps my cats guessing as to which way it will go next - Its low center-of-gravity prevents it from being knocked over by a batting paw Cons: - It's not well-suited for carpets - It doesn't have an automatic shut-off, so if you don't remember to find it and turn it off the batteries will go dead - Dust gets caught up in the wheels easily and can cause it to stop (the right pair of tweezers make for an easy fix) - You need a small Philip's-head screwdriver to open the battery compartment

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I put the batteries in it and it ran for all of 10 minutes. Kitty's reaction? Not happy or playful with it at all. Annoyed, in fact. Just... annoyed. And this is a cat who will pounce on anything that moves.... well, except for this, it seems. I'm going to return it for a refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought this thinking National Geographic would have made something very durable and something my cats would love. It made for a cute Christmas stocking stuffer, but didn't live up to National Geographic's name. I have 3 cats between the ages of 5 and 8, all of whom would watch it, but not chase it or play with it. It gets stuck on the edges of the Oriental rug, and even along the very shallow grooves in my Congoleum kitchen flooring. It's only good on the hardwood floors, but it will pause every few steps before resuming. The center body cavity gets stuck on the locomotive wheels and I have to keep re-aligning that piece to get it running again. It's cool the way it senses obstacles and turns around, but my 3 cats are not engaging with it at all. If my guests hadn't thrown out the package, I would have returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fantastic I have two kittens and started the bug up for them. For the first few minutes they were a little afraid of it, backing up when it came toward them. Soon they were chasing it around and batting it with their paws. They played with is for one hour straight, and even ignored my filling the food bowls (normally they are all over me). My only problem is they ran out the batteries and now I need to by new ones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breaks easily Not worth the money. Cats loved chasing it on linoleum/tile floor, but once it got batted across the room it never moved again. Doesn't work on carpet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love it! I have three senior cats. Since the first few minutes they saw this small caterpillar running through the living room they began to chase it. A nice motion make the cats to be interested in it, and the caterpillar is smart enough to avoid being trapped by furniture. I definitely recommend this toy.
