The Whimsy Cat Toy

The Whimsy interacive cat toy for solo feline fun

The Whimsy is an automatic teaser toy that connects to almost any counter, table or other sturdy surface and dangles a fun teaser ball for your cat. It also has a  Play While You Are Away mode so your cats can play throughout the day.

SeaCat and Flapjack’s Mom attached it to a windowsill in the dining room, where the cats like to hang out.

” It makes a bit of noise, (whirring etc) but the cats seem to like that and the movement of the dangling toy part is erratic and unpredictable – so they don’t seem to be getting bored with it. I think this one is great especially for people who have to leave their cats home alone, as this provides a nice way to keep them busy. I also like that it is very easy to install / move – it really is versatile in terms of where it can be attached.


“The directions that come with it are pretty clear, and battery life is good (we’ve been using it for a month or so now and have not had to replace the batteries yet).  It is solidly built and attaches firmly without harming the surface – so perfect for cats that play rough without being tough on your  your household interior.”

Product testator were Flapjack and SeaCat.

The Whimsy gets the Must Have Stamp of Approval.

tip of the day

The legendary Dr Roger Mugford with the Halti Optifit

Exercise is healthy. A nice walk before a meal will ensure that afterwards, your dog will relax and snooze. However, on very hot days, limit exercise excursions to either early morning or early evening to avoid the punishing heat of the middle of the day. Be sure to take water with you – even on a short walk. Winter or summer — ALWAYS  tailor your dog’s walks to his age and general mobility. Consider walking inside a pet-friendly indoor mall if the weather is not conducive to outside exercise.


The Must Have Stamp of Approval is based on my personal opinion and the test experiences of the Reigning Cats and Dogs product testers as well as my personal knowledge of the product category. The Must Have Stamp of Approval is designed to advise pet parents on products that will in some way improve their pet’s health and well being, or, their own experiences as a pet parent. Manufacturers are welcome to submit information and samples of new and innovative products for testing. The product testing team consists of dogs and cats of different temperaments and activity levels etc in an attempt to cover a lot of bases and produce worthwhile reviews. The team loves what they do and get to keep the products so they can show off to their friends and further spread the word.
