Overview

Our take on the FroliCat Bolt Interactive Laser Cat Toy

It's been a couple of years since I had a cat in my home, but Tara from our video department used the Bolt to entertain her feline friends while she was busy cooking. It was an instant success!

When you're not using your laser to slowly dismember a mouthy British spy, it can also entertain your cat.

Entertain kitty with a laser

It's been a couple of years since I had a cat in my home, but Tara from our video department used the Bolt to entertain her feline friends while she was busy cooking. It was an instant success!

"I hit the button on the side and placed it on my ottoman," she said. "The cats immediately started chasing it, which is pretty good, since they're 13 and 14 years old. It definitely got them moving more than I've been able to with the standard toy-on-a-string."

Product Highlights:

  • automatic mode moves the laser in random patterns for your cat to chase
  • automatically shuts down after 15 minutes
  • manual mode lets you aim the laser with adjustable mirror
  • powered by 4 AA batteries (not included)
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

FroliCat Bolt Interactive Laser Cat Toy

Crutchfield customer from Sagamore Beach, MA on 12/14/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Keeps the young ones chasing it as long as it's on. Older cats are not as excited but gets their attention. The younger cats get so excited especially when the program brings the laser beam close to the toy that it's knocked over. We went to Michael's and bought one of their 8" diameter pieces of wood and also self-sticking Velcro and put one piece on the toy's bottom and the other on the wood to "Velcro" the toy to the wood base and solved the problem of them knocking the toy on its side. It can be taken apart to replace the batteries and then replacing the Velcro portions back together. The negative is it should have come with batteries.

Pros: Keeps their attention, especially the younger cats

Cons: Should have come with batteries and can be easily knocked over.

Craig from Perry Hall, MD on 9/23/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My cat loves this toy. When I turn it on he can hear the little motor running and he knows what's going to happen. He watches it for a few moments while the light scoots across the room and suddenly it stops! That's the moment he pounces on the light and he can't understand how the dot got onto the top of his paw! It is providing endless enjoyment for our cat and us.

Pros: Runs for 15 minutes and automatically shuts off.

Cons: Uses 4 AA batteries (not included).

Great value

LOVE IT! Or, my cats do! Thank you so much. The price is reasonable and I will be giving them as Christmas gifts. I love that the toy turns itself off after 20 minutes.

Pros: Cats love it and it turns off automatically after about 20 minutes.

It works, but the angle is a bit steep for placing the unit at a high location. But it is a nice unit.

Crutchfield customer from Lagrange, GA on 12/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

i dont want to overuse this, but my kittens walk over to it and meow to turn it on. i'm not interested in the hand held pens. what sold this is that it operates on its own. the only downside is that it goes through batteries too fast. great product.

Pros:

Cons:

Entertaining for both my cats. It's an idea I thought of because of doing it by hand.

Pros: Cats love lasers

Cons: Battery operated, so buy plenty batteries, and maybe different speeds

Features

Overview: The PetSafe Bolt (PTY00-14244) is an interactive laser toy that provides hours of entertainment for you and your cat. Bolt has two modes, Manual and Automatic, and is powered by 4 "AA" batteries (not included).

Modes: Bolt has two operating modes:

  • Automatic: The Automatic mode is for hands-free play time, as the built-in mirror moves the laser light in random patterns. Simply set the device on a safe, flat surface, such as a table or floor, and sit back and watch your cat chase the laser light along the floor, up the walls, and across the furniture.
  • Manual: The Manual mode lets you hold Bolt in your hands to point the laser wherever you want. The built-in mirror doesn't move, so you'll be able to control the laser light.

Timer: Bolt is equipped with an automatic timer that turns the laser off after 15 minutes.

Adjustable Mirror: The PetSafe Bolt has an adjustable mirror so you can control the height of the laser light and aim the laser across a variety of surfaces. The sliding control on the top of the device changes the tilt of the mirror.

Advisory: This product emits laser radiation*. Direct eye exposure to the laser beam or its reflection should be avoided. Use of this toy by children is not recommended.

* Diode laser < 5mW max output at 650nm. This is a Class IIIa laser product.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Actually for my dog and my son's dog who both love to chase laser pointers for cats. The videos on the page sold me! [ Kenneth  Dec 14, 2018 ]
Excellent Xmas gift for my daughter's new cat that she rescued. [ Tim  Dec 05, 2018 ]
I ordered it for my cats and they love it! It shuts off automatically after about 10-15 minutes. I am ordering this as a gift for a friends cat. I haven't seen it anywhere locally and I live close to a PetSmart and Petco. [ Paula  Dec 02, 2018 ]
My cats love any kind of lite or lasers. They will go crazy over this. [ Karen  Nov 26, 2018 ]
After trying to login to my account with no luck and having being your customer since the 1980's I really wonder why I still bought the products. [ Daryl  Nov 18, 2018 ]
MY CAT IS CRAZY ABOUT LASER TOYS - HAVE BEEN USING HAND HELD - [ richard  Nov 15, 2018 ]
price [ Froylan  Oct 07, 2018 ]
I bought the 1st one from the scratch and dent department but it already is not working. The cats LOVE this toy, so I just bought a NEW ONE.. [ susan  Sep 10, 2018 ]
I love my cats and want to give them something to play with... [ Kevin  May 07, 2018 ]
So I don't have to entertain them all the time. [ Robert  Dec 16, 2017 ]
My cat needs a good toy. [ Annette  Dec 09, 2017 ]
For smaller children, automated laser is hopefully safer for eyes than one in the hands of a 5 year old. Cat exercise enjoyment with hopefully less eye risk to all concerned. Anything that is pet calming is worth a try. If Crutchfield/people like it, I expect I will. That's what "trusted" is all about (plus there is an ironclad return guarantee which I have used once over 20+ years of dealing with them). [ B  Nov 23, 2017 ]
Kitties love it. [ Kenny  Sep 18, 2017 ]
I was looking for somethig to entertain our two cats without our intervation. [ Ronaldo  Jul 24, 2017 ]
Cause i know he will love it. [ JUSTIN MICHAEL  Jun 11, 2017 ]
