The Balancing Ball is a a plastic ball that has a plastic stem on it and hanging off the end is a bunch of feathers (see photo). It has a weight on it, so that when a cat bats at it, it will re-balance itself to stand up straight again, encouraging the cat to bat at it again and again.
I brought the Balancing Ball over to my friends’ house to have their cat, Diablo, test it out. However, when I was over there, I never was able to get a good video of him playing with it. So they were able to shoot a couple and send them over to me to share for the review. Check out the videos below of Diablo, a polydactyl cat, playing with the Balancing Ball.
You can buy the Booda® Balancing Ball by Petmate online through Amazon.com for $12.99. I think you can also find it in Petsmart and Petco.
