In the category Best New Cat Product of 2018, the Petronics Mousr was the gadget that ticked all of our boxes.

Welcome to our 1st annual PetGuide Best Of Awards! This inaugural contest brings you the best of the best in the pet industry. And we’d know what are the most pawesome products at the moment, as we’re always researching for our news section or visiting pet trade shows where we get the chance to see these nifty gadgets in person and try them out before everyone else. Our goal was to find products that promise to change the life of our furry companions for the better and make ours much easier. Winners were decided upon based on innovation, features, ease-of-use, durability, design, and functionality. In the category Best New Cat Product of 2018, the Petronics Mousr was the gadget that ticked all of our boxes. This interactive robotic cat toy will give your kitty the time of her life and offer both mental and physical stimulation. And all the while, the innovative technology behind the product ensures that you won’t have to be the one swishing the toy around for your feline to have fun!

At first glance, the Petronics Mousr might seem like another battery-operated toy your finicky feline will take one look at and decide it’s not worth their attention. However, looks can be deceiving, as this rodent-like robot is guaranteed to pique your pet’s curiosity. Mousr is equipped with sensors and built-in artificial intelligence which earned it the title of the world’s smartest cat toy on the market. Without any help needed from you, this toy will move around your apartment in a manner that engages any feline- as it plays on their innate hunter instinct. However, if you’re keen to join in on the fun your kitty will be having with this toy, you can skip the auto mode in favor of directing Mousr yourself via a smartphone app. Don’t worry, you won’t have to get up from the couch either way!

To get in front of the problem of feline indifference to any toy after a period of time, the Petronics Mousr offers a variety of tails for their robotic rodent. Different lengths and styles will keep your kitty on her jellybean toes- switching from Bounce Tail to Flick or Chase type is sure to preserve your fickle feline’s interest indefinitely.

But why is a toy the overall winner of our Best New Cat Product of 2018 category? Because playing is equally crucial for a feline’s health, same as good nutrition or preventive health care. Cats simply weren’t “designed” to sit around and wait for their pawrent to serve them kibble. Sure, they certainly don’t seem to mind this new arrangement, but it can be quite detrimental to their overall well-being. Felines that lack stimulation and entertainment often to turn to destructive behavior and become depressed. Not to mention that the lack of activity is what contributes to cat obesity, a serious issue that severely affects the lifespan and health of pets. Having toys that manage to engage them and give them an outlet for their natural hunter behavior will ensure that your furry bestie is truly living out their best life.

The Petronics Mousr employs the latest technology to give your kitty the much-needed indoor prey, and, at the same time, let you off the hook from having to swing teaser toys around until your hand falls off or your cat gets bored– whichever happens first. As a durable, entertaining toy that is designed to impress felines and their parents alike, The Petronics Mousr definitely deserved to win our Best New Cat Product of 2018 award.
