My cat is obsessed.
5/ 5stars

This was the best purchase I've made for my cat outside of the necessities of course. He is like most cats and doesn't like everything I've purchased for him to play with, but he does have a handful of things that can hold his interest from time to time. This is leaps and bounds ahead of even his ot her favorite toys. I've bought 10 packs so far. Saves us from having to dig them out from under the couch as often. Basically I throw them overhand or I toss them like I'm bowling and he goes flying after them. Sometimes he starts running before I even throw it. They are so light weight he barely touches them and they go flying again so I don't have to do all of the work. They don't bounce quite as well as the marketing would make you believe, but they still provide endless engagement for the cat. And it's easy for him to carry in his mouth. Sometimes he will bring a spring over to me to throw. Or I will see him randomly walk by and realize he has one in his mouth. Sometimes I hear him making subtle noises and wonder what he is doing and he will be laying there playing with one. These are a life saver. It's nice to see the cat so enthralled with something. And something cheap. Woo hoo! Read more

Keeps kitty's attention! They loved these!
5/ 5stars

Kitty tested, kitty approved! Meow!! I recently got LOTS (too many...ugh) kittens. I had two sets of them. Really little tiny ones that didn't even know how to eat solid food yet, and then 3-4 month size. I discovered these around Christmas/New Year, and all the kittens, whether teeny guys or older kitten size just loved these springs! They have all gotten to be so much bigger now than they were when I first bought these springs, but they all still love them and chase them all over. They even pick them up and carry them around in their mouths like a fresh 'kill'. They are durable too, I've accidentally stepped on them before with boots on, but they didn't break. I love these... and highly reccomend. I don't need any more right now, but I would definitely buy these again. Great product! Read more

Potentially very DANGEROUS -- please be careful
1/ 5stars

Please use extreme caution if you purchase these toys for kittens in particular. My 12 week old kitten started to lose weight and was failing to thrive when he was always the largest and strongest of a litter I am fostering. I weigh the kittens continually to track their progress. A barium study rev ealed 5 broken pieces of these springs in his GI tract which will now have to be removed either endoscopically or by surgery if the pieces migrated to his intestines. This would have killed him and/or caused perforation if not caught in time. Despite careful supervision of the kittens during play with the springs, the one kitten ingested them a few days ago. We supervise very carefully as my spouse, a veterinary internist, has had to remove many unusual items from dogs and cats that one would not expect they would/could swallow over his 20 plus years in practice so this happening was especially distressing.UPDATE:My lucky kitten is now a healthy cat in our multi-cat household. I wanted to clarify that the spring pieces removed and returned to us were both the plastic Ethical WIDE Colorful Springs Cat Toy and Ethical THIN Colorful Springs Cat Toys. The wide ones do not break easily, however, cats can break them and chew the edges making them sharp. People can also break the springs unintentionally. I do not think the vast majority of cats would ingest the pieces, however, I wanted to share my experience so owners are aware that it can happen even if it is a rare occurrence. Read more

Maine Coon Kitty Crack
5/ 5stars

Maine Coon kitty crack. That's what these springs are! I buy them frequently because my Maine Coon kitten is obsessed. As soon as she sees them she starts talking and doesn't stop until she's lost it somewhere in the house. It's a game to her to see how quickly she can lose these, and a game for us to see how long she can go without losing them. They pop all over the place, they're perfect for kitten paws to throw around and they provide endless opportunities for activity and chasing. The only downside is the losing of them. They disappear like crazy. I'm sure when we move out of this house we'll find hundreds of them in the most fascinating places. As it is now they appear to disappear into thin air. Thank goodness they're cheap! Read more

The perfect cat toy -- after modifications
4/ 5stars

These have been a staple for our cat's enjoyment since we got him three years ago. They're everywhere throughout our house. Guests have returned home only to find one in their suitcase.However, sometime back our cat had a sore in the corner of his mouth and lower lip. The vet could not determine wha t it was and gave us a liquid medication to apply as needed. The condition would get better and then come back. These springs often get tangled in electrical cords or stuck under a piece of furniture, and the cat will pull at them and sometimes the end will snap back out of his mouth. That got me thinking that the relatively sharp ends might be grabbing at his lip when they snap. So I tried blunting the ends of every, single spring toy in the house by using needle nose pliers to bend back about 3/16 to1/4 of each end onto itself as shown in the photo. I've been doing this for about four months and there have been no issues with lip sores. Having to make this modification is the only thing keeping this from being a 5-star review and ending with the first paragraph. While it would increase the cost, it would be wonderful if the manufacturer would blunt the ends so this modification isn't necessary. Read more

Hazardous toy for any cat to play with. The springs are very,very small and only when I received them and read the warning label, was it clear that my cat should not be left unsupervised while playing with this toy.l do not recommend buying this for any size Cat's to play with.Ridiculous that Ethica l Products would sell such an item.

You May Learn Your Cat Can Fetch!
5/ 5stars

I figured the cats would enjoy these for a bit and then tire of them. Imagine my surprise to find out they absolutely love them. Especially my 7 month-old kitties, littermates Izzie Ollie. They both play with them a great deal but this has become Ollie's favorite toy. You will see him carrying them around the house in his little mouth, up and down the stairs and, much to my delight has begun bringing them to me to throw so he can chase them and bring them back. My cat fetches! And I discovered this because of these little springs. (The video I've included is the first night I realized he wanted to play fetch with them)I'm not sure if they love these because they look like something they shouldn't be playing with, but all three of my younger cats play with them all the time (the two 7 month-olds and our 10 month-old). The older cats (7 and 12 years) will bat them around sometimes, but the younger ones seem to get the most fun out of playing and carrying these around.I highly recommend these if you have kittens or young cats. They really do seem to enjoy them and they're easy for them to pick up with claws or bite and hold in their mouths. They've also held up, I haven't noticed any chips or any broken ones (yet). I do know another reviewer had an issue with this and their cats but we've had no breakage. Read more

The LIST
5/ 5stars

These little springs are the fourth (4th) most popular cat toy I know of:1. Anything they can steal.2. Boxes or bags, especially if they are not supposed to have them.3. Wadded up paper, the krinklier the better. Large sheets of Amazon's brown packing paper all wadded up are the ultimate.4. The spri ngs.Seriously, my bunch loves these things, and the colors don't run when somebody plunks them into the water dish, either. Little mousies fail this last test miserably. Read more

DANGEROUS for kittens! And NON-RETURNABLE!
1/ 5stars

I bought these based on a reviewer who said he used pliers to bend back the tips so they weren't sharp. In his photo it looked like these were metal spirals covered with some kind of plastic coating. I was willing to bend back tips, if that's what it took to make these safe. But it turned out that t hese are 100 brittle plastic. There is no way to bend back the tips without them snapping off and becoming not only sharp but jagged. And the tips are extremely sharp to being with! While I was experimenting with trying to bend back a tip, the kitten got hold of one and by the time I got it away from her (only seconds later) she had a cut/puncture on her upper lip. If these had been actual metal springs coated with plastic, and tips were not sharp to begin with, they would have been great cat toys. They are a good size for kittens or cats, and are so lightweight that a kitten could easily carry it to play fetch. For some reason when I tried to return these (within the time limit) it said they are not eligible for return. Despite the name, this company is NOT ethical in the least! Read more

Wonderfully fun! My cats favorite toy.
5/ 5stars

I had to buy more of these spring toys because of their AWESOMENESS. Theyre so light, springy and the best part is theyre QUIET, so no annoying jingle bell to hear. Ive never seen a cat LOVE a toy so much. They bounce across my hardwood floors so easily and they boink just as great on the carpeted a reas of my house. My cat will literally play with these springs for hours. He has over 20 of them, so one can always be found when looking. If hes not whacking them across the room hes carrying one in his mouth or he is sleeping with one. This one particular spring matches his neon green nails perfectly. Lol (Hes wearing kitty caps to cover his sharp claws instead of declawing). He has learned how to play Fetch as he will drop them right in front of me and I will throw it back out for him to chase. He will do this in excess of over 10 times before he tires himself out. So fun! There are 10 colorful springs in each pack, so its definitely affordable. I bought this several times so I could give the springs away, individually, as gifts to friends cats and to my patients cats. (Im a Homecare RN) I see the price went up a lot on these, but theyre such a hit, its worth it at 45 cents a spring. Life gets real hard sometimes... so being entertained for a few minutes while watching your cat rolling around the ground, completely intrigued with flipping around a cheap bouncy springy thing, is strangely healing in itself. I cant believe I spent this much time reviewing a cat toy... but Ive found a winner and I love sharing the fun, and my cute kitty photos, with others. Read more
