Moody Pet Fling-Ama-String Electronic Cat Toy Product Review
The Moody Pet Fling-Ama-String is an electronic cat toy that comes already assembled and ready to go! It hangs on any standard door knob. It runs on three AA batteries that are not included. The long multi-colored nylon string is sewn on to a elastic “coveyor belt” which rotates to bring the string out and back in, as you can see in any of the videos below. Fling-Ama-String has two speeds.
The little rolls on the conveyor belt can get clogged, but it’s very easy to clean and took a long time for that to happen for us – in other words, it didn’t happen right away – and was back to new once I had cleaned it.
My cats reacted very similarly to the toy as my cats did, as you can see below in the videos. My cats always played with the toy when I turned it on, but I wouldn’t say they were nuts about it like I have heard about other cats. Would I keep this toy or buy it myself? Sure – the cats seem to enjoy it and as my sister pointed out – it’s a nice toy because it’s out of the way, hanging on a door – not something you’ll trip on, etc. It’s fun, something different that they can play with while I am fixing dinner, for example.
With that said, with any motorized cat toy, I would never leave the cats to play with it unattended – I wouldn’t turn it on and leave the house – as long as I am a few rooms away or in the same room, I let it run. But if I am not nearby or if I am not at home, the toy is off and the string is tucked away, as I show in the review video below.

Hi, I’m Jenny Dean, creator of Floppycats! Ever since my Aunt got the first Ragdoll cat in our family, I have loved the breed. Inspired by my childhood Ragdoll cat, Rags, I created Floppycats to connect, share and inspire other Ragdoll cat lovers around the world,
I’m Jenny Dean, and I am pictured here with my two Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg. I met my first Ragdoll when I was 3 years old. Christmas 1989 my parents gifted my brothers and me, two Ragdoll kittens – Rags and Cosby. Rags, who lived 19 years, is the reason why I started Floppycats in 2008. Continue reading about me here.
