Brought to you by zaKatz toys, the Mackerel Touch Activated zaFish is an innovative interactive tech toy for dogs and cats that realistically mimics the flopping of a stranded fish.

The life size zaFish comes with a cat nip attractor that is activated when touched and the mechanism can be removed and used in a replacement fish cover. Watch the video to see how cats throw the fish into the air.

– Motion sensor activated, but there is an off switch
– The tail flap has 3 realistic movement modes of a stranded fish
– Re-fillable porous Catnip bag for initial attraction to start the movement
– Re-chargeable battery through a standard Micro USB cable and charger
– Fully charged in one hour, one charge provides 150 movement cycles

The 3 realistic movements of a stranded fish will keep your cat entertained for hours. Made from a soft fabric, the zaFish contains a porous re-fillable catnip bag that will entice your cat to touch the fish, which will activate the motion sensor and the tail flap will cycle through the three-movement modes sequentially.
When not moved after a cycle completes, the zaFish will go into auto-sleep until it detects motion again. There is no need to turn off the zaFish unless you don’t want it to move (e.g. at night).

When charging the Mackerel Touch Activated zaFish using the micro USB cable, wait for the light to turn green before using. To replace the catnip in the re-fillable catnip bag, pull apart the Velcro on the side of the zaFish and insert the catnip bag in the pouch. Do not use loose catnip in the pouch as this may damage the mechanism.

The zaFish is not waterproof and for indoor use only. Water will damage the electronics and the warranty will be voided.
The mechanism contains a rechargeable Lithium battery and at the end of the battery life span, should be disposed as appropriate for batteries of this type.
Do not burn.

Additional information

Product Information

If your cat love it when it crackles, rustles or shines, then the Glitter Refill is just the right addition! The silver-green glitter is composed of tinsel-like paper foil, is extremely light and flexible.

It swirls through the air noisily or swings across the floor, the reflective and sparkling strands attracting even the comfiest cat from its cushion. It is the easisest of the Refills to pull away from your cat when it has been caught. Carefully handmade, the Glitter Refill will endure many hours of play with your raving natural hunters.

We recommend using the Glitter Refill with the zaBird cat rod, it can however be attached to many cat rods. The replacement is fast and easy!

Please Note: The zaBird is an interactive cat toy and should never be left unattended with your cat. When your cat has caught the end piece, take it away from it right away. The game is about catching, not chewing. The rod is collapsible for a reason, to put it away in a draw where your cat cannot get to it, which it will try!
