No, it just stays on until you turn it off. It never changes speed or variation. My cat was bored with it. Try a flin-ama-string instead.

Hi, no this toy doesn't turn itself. The pet has to flip it with their nose or paws. My dog uses his nose or picks it up with his teeth and throws it, haha! Its a great toy for dogs, not sure about cats.

Question

Any protections from cat eating string?

This toy looks ingenious. My cat would ADORE this. But ... he also ADORES eating string. As he has used up two of his lives already in close calls - what guarantee do I have he wouldn't eat this?

That is tough...there is no guarantee possible. After all, it's string and not stainless steel. The most your cat could get is probably like 4 or 5 inches...we lost the string after a couple weeks at our house and have not sound it or seen it again, so no telling if it as eaten or played with into a corner. The cat is still going strong, and one I fixed the toy, it is too, so far so good. You can always monitor the toy for the first couple of times and put it away otherwise to see what you cat does... Good Luck!

There's nothing you can do to stop him from eating the string. Perhaps spray something bitter on it. The string would pull off if you cat tugged enough. The problem is that this toy offers no variation in motion or timing. It just repeats the same spin over and over. There's no tease to it. Try a fling-ama-string. I think it's more fun than this, but again the cat can easily get the string and eat it if not closely supervised. Could be very dangerous!

I hear ya! I can't guarentee that he can't eat the string, but I can tell you that both of my kitties are British Shorthair (i.e., strong, "cobby" builds) and although they like to grab the string and hold it so the motor strains and the string can't whip in-and-out... the string has stayed attached to the toy.
I'm not sure I would trust it to stay out and for them to play unsupervised, but otherwise it appears to be well made and sturdy.
Hope this helps...

Yes, my cat did the same. It's a great toy, so I set out to fix mine. Contrary to other posters, it is really easy to open up and fix if you can use a small Phillips screwdriver. 1) There are 5 screws to remove from the bottom. They may get hung up in the housing, so 2) turn the unit over on a towel to keep the screws from bouncing when they come out. The top is one piece and the guts are all in the bottom, so it's easy to 3) lift the top off and see everything inside. The string is held by a knot to a piece of plastic screwed to the end of the arm. 4) Take a picture with your cell phone of how the plastic piece is oriented and what it looks like, it's easy to get confused about how it goes back together. 5) Take the plastic piece off the arm (it’s one screw and the little square knob on the plastic fits into a square hole in the arm). 6)Dig out the old knot & string with a straight pin or similar tool. 7) Use a piece of boot shoelace or similar densely woven small diameter string around the same length as the old piece. It is a little tricky to get the string routed in the plastic piece, but you can do it! I made the hole a little bigger with a hobby knife to make it easier). 8) Tie a simple knot, push the knot back into the recess (use a tiny bit of white glue to hold it in place, cut of any tail that might extend past the knot, 9) reattach the plastic piece (use the picture you took and take care to get it the same way as it was), 10) put the top housing back in place, turn it over, put in and gently tighten the 5 screws and you are good to go!
The first time I opened the unit up, I kept the boot lace tip on at the flicking end, but it makes a lot of noise and moves very quickly. I cut it off and the lace frayed quickly, so I did it all over again and used a little white glue to hold the fibers together at the end and it's been going strong for months! Good luck!
(if the company included 3 extra string assemblies and simple instructions, they would go a long way towards improving customer good will for a very effective cat toy!)
