Hey everybuddy!  Wally here…along with Ernie.  Check out this really fun toy the people at PetSafe® sent us to try out.  It’s called the Flitter and it’s one of the newest cat toys in the PetSafe® interactive toy line.

Wally with the PetSafe Flitter

The PetSafe® Flitter is an automatic teaser toy with two dragonflies that fly around and around just asking to get caught.

The Flitter is very easy to use.  It comes disassembled but snaps together easily…the mom had no trouble putting it together.  She popped in 3 AA batteries (not included, of course) and turned it on.  And then the fun began!  The random flitting of the dragonflies and the cool sounds they make really got our attention.

Hey, Ernie…show everybuddy how much fun the Flitter is.

Hey Fly…do you really think you can get away from me?

Beware the Paw of Doom!

Hey, Ernie!  You need to work a little harder to catch those dragonflies.

Just like the other PetSafe® interactive cat toys, the Flitter shuts off after 10-15 minutes of play so humans, you don’t have to worry about turning it off.  And it also includes the “play while you’re away” mode where it will turn on 3 separate times about 2 hours apart to keep us cats entertained while you’re not there.  Of course, you should first monitor your cat’s play with the Flitter before leaving him or her alone with it.  The dragonflies are attached to the arms with string, so if you have a string-chewing cat, you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on him or her.

  3. George loves this kind of toy. Of course, he is that kind of Dude. And, he really wants to fly!

  4. We don’t think we’ve ever played with any PetSafe toys, so winning this one would be pawsome! Dragonflies are our favorite!

  5. Oh, Mudpie would have loads of fun with that! And would you believe she has NO PetSafe toys??? So deprived.

  6. I don’t think we’ve ever tried out any PetSafe toys, and by the look of it we’ve really been missing out! This Flitter toy looks purrfect for keeping kitties happy and active. Thank you for sharing this great review with us, and for giving us a chance to win one! Purrs!

  7. Not entering because we have one that we will be reviewing too! Great review!!!

  8. i tried their laser light automatic toy, but for some reason my cats didn’t really like it (I think the light didn’t move enough for their taste). I think they’d love this one.

  9. Say Ernie and Wally this looks like a TOTALLY fun toy……did ya capture them?

    Hugs, Sammy


  11. I would love to see which ones of our herd would like this!

  12. Ernie, good job! We’ve never tried toys like this for Angel and Chuck, so we hope to win so we can see if their 11-and-a-half year old selves will move it!

  13. looks like having extra toes is helpful in catching the dragonflies…

  14. That is a fun looking toy. So Ernie, did you get it stopped??? Great review.

  15. That is surely a fun toy. We would love to swat those flying thingies all day long.

  16. Ernie, we’re sorry to say we giggled when those dragonflies sneaked up on you and bopped you from behind. We didn’t giggle nearly as much as our mommy did though!

  17. That looks a fun toy! I like that it shuts off automatically and also you can set “play while you are away” mode.

  18. I haven’t tried any of their toys, but I’ve recently started using their water dispenser (recently meaning I just set it up for my kitty today.)

  19. This definitely looks fun! I wonder if two of my cats would play with it at one time, since there are two dragonflies. Hmmmm, I can dream, right? Thank you for the review and for the opportunity to win one!

  20. Looks like so much fun! Our house is full of toys, I imagine one or two is PetSafe!

  65. A wonderful, wonderful toy. And as I said in my comment upon entering the contest, I am not very interested in any cat toys so far, maybe because I play outside a lot, but basically, I really am looking for a turn-on and this really might fit the bill. Er…muzzle.
    What good minds those toy people must have to think up these things.
    Dragonflies in the garden aren’t half as interesting…
