How cute is that?


Installation was supurr easy, and it took less than 1 minute to find 3 x AA batteries and set up.

Next, locate the 'on' button on the left side of the unit, press and off mew go.

Finally, find a suitable place to put the dancing Laser Dot Toy and let the fun begin.

Watch our video below to see how we got on, so sit back, chillax and hit the play button.

If for any reason to video doesn't play, please click here to watch direct on YouTube.

Mew can select One Time Play by pressing the button once, and the session will last 15 minutes, or for even more fun hold the button down until mew hear 2 beeps and mew can have the Play All Day mode set, and every 2 hours it will turn on for a 15-minute session. So purrfect for getting snoozes in-between playtimes. 

It does make a little bit of noise as the motor whirls the laser dot around but aftur a few minutes mew hardly notice it. Mew purrobably can't hear the motor whirr on the video because of the mewsic, but at approx 57 secs, mew can see Melvyn's very furst reaction to it. Though it didn't take long for him to furget about the noise and get chasing the dot!  

Fudge got supurr curious at 1 min 34 secs and batted it to face the other way! MOL

We would suggest from this that wherever mew site or position it, make sure that it's safe and secure so it won't get knocked off anything, though as we were moving it around for the video we didn't secure it.

Our closing thoughts

We've been having great fun with this toy for weeks now and let us tell mew why.

We love laser toys here and the P.A. often entertains us with the little handheld ones, but this laser toy is so much more than one of those.

As we said, there are 2 play modes, so if mew just want a quickie session mew can get that sorted or if your peeps are going out and leaving mew alone while they go to wurk etc... the Play All Day mode is purrfect for this scenario.

It has a little strap attached to it so mew can hang it from door handles, cupboards or wherever mew like, or mew can just place it on a shelf or flat surface; though if your kitty is a bit like Fudge mew might want to stick it down with something like a command strip to stop it getting toppled off.

 We also liked that the laser patterns were random and changed constantly, plus the higher mew put it a bigger and faster pattern is projected on the floor, so if mew have a huge room put it as high as mew safely can to use the floor space for maximum zoomies or for a smaller room, lower down for a smaller chase, and as mew can see in the video we tested it on various heights to demonstrate this. 

We think that the bigger faster pattern is definitely the way to get a better wurkout, especially for any kitty that's looking to shed a bit of weight if they've been overindulging during lockdown.

This is a totally top toy, and we give it ten out of ten paws as it:

has 2 play modes

is supurr fun 

is great for feline enrichment 

is highly entertaining with or without pawrents in the room 

increases daily exercise 

nurtures natural hunting instincts

keeps your daily step rate up which is especially good for indoor kitties

prevents boredom when alone

plus it looks ameowzingly stylish too in gloss white, so will suit all decors

This toy ticks all the boxes, and mew only need 3 x AA batteries to enjoy hours and hours and hours of fun.

In summary

This toy is the cat's whiskers!


We would like to say a big thank mew to the supurr peeps at PetSafe for sending their wunderpurr Dancing Dot Laser Cat Toy for us to try ~ THANK MEW FURRY MUCH!

We'll be back next weekend sharing another review post from the PetSafe product range, so do join us for that if mew can.

Until then

  1. I could not see the video; says that it's private either way I tried.
    I think Manny could use an interactive toy like this; he's got more energy than his peeps most times.

  2. Fudge and Melvyn had such fun with it. They both made me laugh near the beginning when they had to check it out.

  3. That was lots of fun and we enjoyed your video!

  4. That looks like a lot of fun for a Cat. I never tried laser toys with my Cat so don't know if she likes them or not. Sound fun. Glad kitty Cats liked the laser toy.
    Thanks for review.


  5. Pipo and Minko would have totally loved something like that!!

  6. That looks like a lot of fun. Cute video. XO
