There one thing to keep in mind before you purchase this – especially if you have aggressive chewers (cats or dogs). The squeaker is pretty small (~½” wide and ¼” thick) and the batteries have a watch size. Make sure to keep an eye out if you suspect your pet(s) may want to chew this part out as the small parts are a potential choking hazard. Aside from this though, it’s an excellent toy!

Contains catnip to keep your cat(s) engaged
Impressive battery life for the built-in squeak sounds
Recommended for small homes and/or apartment due to the small nature of the toy
Does not move on its own (the battery only powers the sound)
Is not waterproof and water exposure tends to mess up the squeak sound
Not recommended for homes with large dogs and/or aggressive chewers as they are prone to biting into the battery compartment

What the User Reviews Say

The Good

Highly interactive and even small dogs enjoy chasing and playing with the toy

The battery life is impressive and can last for weeks into months depending on how often your cat(s) engage with the toy

The toy only squeaks when you play with it, which makes them extra tantalizing for the cats

The squeak is not loud at all

Great size, small enough for cats to play with and not cause accidents in homes or apartments of any size

The Bad

  • Batteries not easily replaceable when the squeaker dies
  • There is no ‘off’ button which can be an issue if your cat(s) play with these toys at all hours of the night.
  • If you have aggressive chewers, make sure to monitor their use since these toys are small enough a good strong bite can access the battery compartment
  • The catnip scent is not too strong and can almost seem non-existent (both a good and bad thing depending on your cat)


The Play N Squeak brand is truly one of the leaders when it comes to interactive cat toys and this Play N Squeak Mouse Hunter cat toy is no exception.
