OK DIYers Cat Wheels

I want my honey to make me a cat wheel. The big ones are so noisy so the bicycle wheel one is cool since its not noisy. Has any CFers made a cat wheel. If so Id like your input.

the person said he used the lazer dot to lure them on the wheel but needed no encouragement after that!

From comments:
Thanks to your video, I made a wheel based off your design.
Cats DO NOT get their tails stuck, cats do not wave their tails when they run. Never. Your concern is totally misplaced.
Secondly - If you have a large cat (mine is 15#), you need a VERY heavy center axle pin. The one I am using for my 26" bicycle wheel with a 48" sonotube outside and 1/4" plywood back is a 3/8" bolt, and it is too lightweight. The wheel rocks when my cat runs full out.
Make the base HEAVY.
