We had a cheap plastic cat wheel for half a year. My cat, Yuki, loves it. He runs on it all the time. But the problem is that cat wheel is not well made at all. It's extremely noisy and shake violently when Yuki does a full speed sprint. After 6 month, couple plastic components broke so we ultimately decided to replace it. After some research, I found the Tonx Modern cat wheel on Etsy. It is expensive, but it is worth every penny I spent. It's super solid and smooth. There is barely any noise, which was the biggest problem I had with the previous cat wheel. Plus, it's much much better looking. Yuki spends about 30-40 mins running or walking every day. When he's not running, he also uses it as a bed lol. I guess he really like the carpet on the wheel. 100% recommend if you are also looking for a cat wheel.
