Feline Exercise Wheel Takes Kickstarter by Stormthe daily dish
Got a fat cat at home? Perhaps a cat exercise wheel is just what the veterinarian ordered. A Kickstarter campaign is making the stationary feline fitness product a reality, having already raised more than $280,000.
The campaign's original goal was to raise $10,000, which it achieved in only seven hours.
One Fast Cat allows indoor cats the chance to get some exercise from the safety of their home, according to Mashable. Created by Sean Farley, the patent-pending product is available for preorder in four different colors. It costs $199 with shipping included. The wheel's running surface is made from closed cell foam to protect your pet's claws from getting stuck in the device.
The One Fast Cat website boasts that the product is made from recycled plastic, simple to assemble and easy to clean.
"The most important thing you can do to prevent boredom in your cat is to make sure their environment is stimulating," the website reads. "In field testing, our cat wheel has proven to not only enhance the physical well-being of our cat but altered [the cat's] disposition to be more relaxed and calm."
