About this deal

This cat toy has a 30-inch teaser wand with a lobster-claw clasp that you can attach a motion-activated floppy fish. The best cat toys mimic insects, rodents, or birds and allow your cat to chase and simulate hunting. These include electronic mice, fishing poles with objects dangling from them, and many others. With a fishing rod and reel being a fun way to play with your cat by tying a toy to the end of the line, casting, retrieving, and all of that I wanted to give a warning about a potential danger. It is in regards to line diameter, break strength, and abrasion. To a certain extent this applies to all string and types of line/cord but especially fishing line. I do a lot of fishing and over the years have cut myself many times with fishing line, in particular braided line. Basically a lot of line is thin enough to cut skin (deeply, like a blade) and able to withstand enough pressure to not break before doing so. Braided line can be extremely thin and strong and if a reel is spooled with it or a toy is tied to it and a cat gets caught in the line or runs around with it there is a HIGH likelihood that the line WILL cut the cats skin. Even nylon lines can cut skin in certain situations. I am giving this warning because of the experiences I have had playing with my cats and the experiences I have had fishing. If you happen upon a reel spooled with braided line or have braided line and want to use it as/with a cat toy I would STRONGLY caution against it. Thankfully I have never injured either of my cats with fishing line but I know that if I played with them the same way I do using elastic cord or shoe laces but instead used thin line with a high breaking strength there would certainly have been a very, very serious injury.

Are you saying these are dangerous in combination with a reel (because of the speed the line moves at) or just in themselves?

Thanks for your warning, I was about 60 seconds away from buying some fishing line for a cat toy and was looking up what a good lbs weight for the line would be.
