Who's On MY Wheel?

Uschi was sleeping with "his" Santa pillow,...
(Yes, it is still out, and the "M" labels it as my childhood Santa pillow,
my sister's Santa pillow has a "J"

What is that noise?,... Who is on my wheel?

Is it Tanji?

Nope, T-grrr is asleep on the red blanket.

That means it must be "hiiimmm",...

Vladi happily strolls along on Uschi's wheel.

V like to walk both directions,...
(Uschi predominantly heads south, to the right)

How cute! Little V is ambidextrous. Almost all of my kitties go to the right, as well.

I wondered about the direction. Any U tube videos I have watched all cats seem to go to the right. We finally finished building our cat wheel last weekend and when I put Cheetah on it for the first time he backed up and was running backwards till he finally made a mad leap outa there. Now I am just trying to get him to sit calmly on it with no movement till he get used to it. It's going to be a slow process.

I would love to see a picture of your wheel/design.

You might try using a feather want to entice Cheetah onto the wheel then use it as a "carrot" to get him/her walking slowly,... then it is just progression.

Keep us posted.

Cheetah's wheel is made totally from stuff hanging around the house...Plywood cut into a circle with bearings on both sides. Panelling for the running part, covered in carpet..all on a stand made of 2x4's. The only thing we had to purchase was a piece of shaft.
I spent the last few days just getting him used to sitting on it with no movement. Last night I actually got him to walk 2 revolutions with holding him lightly to keep him on it. I have a photo of it on my blog almost completed. More to come this weekend!

I want a cat wheel soooo bad. My girls loved the one they had at their breeder's house. Do want.
