About Cat’s Meow

Cat’s Meow is a toy which is said to mimic the action of a rodent scurrying underneath a nylon cover. This is achieved by a ball attached to a wand controlled by a battery-operated motor.

How much does Cat’s Meow cost?

Cat’s Meow costs $19.99 plus $9.95 processing and handling for a total cost of $29.94. This includes two units, without additional shipping for the second unit.

(Note in 2013 the cost was $19.99 plus $7.99 P&H. The second “free” unit was an extra $7.99. This pricing changed in early 2014)

Our Cat’s Meow Review

We tested out a Cat’s Meow with two cats over a 7-day period. As with many cat toys, our cats seemed interested initially, but lost interest after a few days.

Not all cats play the same, nor do they all play like the ones depicted in the television ad below. For example, one of our cats didn’t just play with the toy, he literally assaulted the Cat’s Meow and managed to drag it around the house, nearly destroying it. The other cat watched it with interest, but she never actually played with it. Their initial interest in the toy was short-lived. Again, not all cats are the same. Yours may not lose interest as quickly.

Materials: Initially we had few problems with operation or breakage, although the unit didn’t strike us as crafted from particularly high-quality materials. After a few days, however, the Cat’s Meow was damaged beyond repair by our aggressive male cat.

Billing complaints. We have had complaints from consumers regarding the billing process when ordering online. In some cases, confusion in the online ordering process has led multiple orders being placed. You can find a couple of these complaints over on Ripoff Report.

Television commercial 
Below is a television commercial that has been airing – mostly on weekends – since April 2013.

Bottom Line

If you believe your cat would play with the Cat’s Meow without quickly losing interest, it may be an option to consider, but we feel it’s somewhat expensive for a cat toy of questionable construction. Local pet stores are filled with cat toys from a wide variety of price ranges, none of which require shipping costs or a month-long wait to receive. If you really want to try Cat’s Meow, it is available in many stores in the As Seen on TV section.

    Our cat is 20 years old which is ancient. We bought this for him. He looked at it at first but now he can’t get enough of it. He jumps on it, throws it in the air by getting his claws caught in it, sits on it and generally won’t stop playing with it. If he has a heart attack whilst playing with this, at least he’ll die happy. Brilliant toy.

    Save your money. This product is junk. I should have read the reviews before I purchased it. I bought it today, installed the brand new Duracell batteries, and it ran for five minutes max and quit. More new batteries did not get it going again. It is dead. Five minutes is all it ran and then died. The cat never had a chance to play with it. I’ll be getting a refund on this junk.
