Purr-fectly Spinning: A Coziwow Cat Wheel Review for Happy and Healthy Felines

If you are an avid cat lover like I am, you know that having a happy and healthy cat is important. A few months ago I decided to purchase a cat wheel for my cat Pumpkin, He is part Main Coon and has a ton of energy. Unfortunately, I live in a small one-bedroom currently and needed something to get his energy out, so I decided to try a cat wheel.

Putting the wheel together

The hardest part of putting this wheel together is the two outside rims. If you have help it won’t be very difficult but I put it together alone and it was tricky, however doable. I did run into a small problem where I wasn’t sure if I had the correct parts, I did, but the instructions were not very clear.

There are dowels with springs that have to be put together, the spring and the dowel are separate when you get them, however, the instructions do not show that you have to put them together and I ended up contacting Coziwow support. They were very helpful and explained exactly what I had to do.

The good news is that is probably one of the only bad things I have to say about this wheel. It’s sturdy and heavy enough that you don’t have to worry about it falling over. It’s also not so heavy that you can’t move it by yourself. Since I was putting this together alone I don’t have pictures of myself assembling it, but I did get a little help from Pumpkin and Dixie

Overall this is a well-made cat wheel and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good cat wheel for a small or medium-sized cat, however, this wheel might be too small for larger house cats, I will be updating this review once I have more time to work with my cats on the wheel.

Do my cats use it?

Not in the way it is intended to be used. It’s been about 3 months and they still only want to use it as a setting area. However, I will say I have not had time to really work with either of my cats when it comes to this wheel, so that may be the real issue. It may also be too small for Pumpkin to run on, he fits on it, but it seems a bit cramped when he does try to walk on it.

That being said, I have researched and found most people have great success with this wheel so I’m thinking it’s either my cats or the fact I need to spend more time with them and the cat wheel.
