It’s empty in here!
One of the cats goes absolutely nuts with this toy. Straight out of the box, he started playing with it (the other one has less interest in it). Within about an hour of playing, the small surrounding feathers started breaking loose, and it has also lost a few of the larger quill feathers. The floppy feather end of the wand has also broken loose from the hard plastic wand end. I am disappointed with how quickly the whole thing fell apart, but the cat still loves it.
My name is Zenith. I am a very large, long cat. I have been attacking this invader for the past three years. It takes a month of daily chasing and vicious mauling of the creature until finally its feathers fall off. However it respawns, in different colours. Again I attack and attack and attack...but still it lives. My friends, I may need your assistance in dealing with this persistent menace. Send help...and snacks.
A firm favourite, they never tire of this toy.
Got this for my five month old kitten after seeing the reviews, was a little sceptical as we had bought a large number of toys already, which received a mixed response... Until now!! As soon as this was taken out of the box he literally went bananas, leaping about in a frenzy, even growling and hissing at it (never heard this from him before!) He never seems to get bored of it- and despite mauling it vigorously and relentlessly , it is still in one piece. A few of the feathers have come out , but this does not affect the overall quality of the product, which I would thoroughly recommend for kittens with energy to burn , however I will also be buying some for my friends' cats (including 2 senior citizens) as this toy keeps them entertained, and is great for both physical and mental fitness. You will not regret this purchase!!
This is a fabulous toy for a cat that has to stay indoors - I have a 1 year old adopted cat from a rescue who is adjusting to moving into her new home. She absolutely loves this toy and it is really helping us to bond. she has to stay indoors just now so it helps a lot with burning up energy and keeps life interesting. Bursts of playing madly allow her to settle and rest as she gets used to being here. I have found the danger feather toys are too much stimulation but this is just fab.
My two bengals have been spoilt with all the toys you can think of, from expensive to cardboard boxes.....but this is definitely BOTH their favourite toy!! They go crazy for it and gets them moving and active. We're from Australia and I thought 'Da Bird' stick with feather and sound was the best, but I think this toy has replaced the no. spot! Highly recommend and especially for the price too!
This is a fantastic toy, it's well made, and robust, it arrived today and we've spent three hours playing with it while my cat attempted to kill it. I've never seen her so animated, from the very first start she perked up, and she's being intent on killing it ever since. Of all the toys we have, and there are many, this is the one that has grabbed her attention from the beginning. If she does manage to kill it I will be getting another one!
My 6 cats go mad for this feather bouncer toy. They know where it's kept so wait outside the cupboard door for it. Any cat would love this toy & I have 6 cats. I've never seen them more so fast before but with this feather bouncer - they love it!!! I've donated several to the local animal sanctuary who have cat cuddlers who come in to play with them so this is brilliant fun. A***** Excellent product
A great toy for a super bouncy Bengal. Daxter has not yet managed to wreck the dancer yet and he has played with it for a few weeks now!
My very energetic young cat adores this. It has been his favourite toy since we got it months ago, and it is just now looking as worn as all the other feather toys do after a couple of weeks. It is also the only toy that he doesn't tire of. He even carries it from room to room and plays with it himself if no one will play with him!
The only good part about this is the bendy end. The feathers came out in the box they were delivered in and the item itself was very skimpy. The handle is a clear plastic , not worth the money and no good for large active breeds.
This feather toy is my cat's favourite. No other toy comes close to it. Highly recommend it!
They both love this one, seems a little stronger. The sticks on the others easily snap and the feathers come out easily but this one is still alright. Even though the black bit keeps coming out you can easily put it back on the stick. Overall it's a great toy and my cats enjoy playing with it, it should last a little longer.
I got a cat and my friend introduced me to this toy site, she has various toys but said this was the best one (only one) to get.... So I didn't listen and bought quite a few toys, but this IS the only one she plays with, indeed it's fair to say I too have to hide it as she goes so mad for it!!
This is the best toy i have ever got our cats. They love it and cannot get enough of it to the point we have to hide it away so they cant get hold of it when not playing. Also another great point its pretty robust, other dangler toys seem to get destroyed within hours of having it but this last about 2 weeks with 4 cats playing with it! Thoroughly impressed!
My cats are adults and they go absolutely crazy for this no other toy stands up to it, and its fairly robust. Alot of feather toys seem to get broken sometimes within 2 hours of buying them, but this lasts for maybe 2 weeks! So thoroughly impressed with this toy i buy one every time i buy there food!
Bought this for my two little kits who went wild over this. Really well made and unlike so many other toys with feathers, there is no chance of them being pulled out of the stick. Highly recommended!
I have two young very playful cats and they absolutely LOVE this toy! They both pounce for it once we bring it out and they take it in turns to have a play - they got so competitive for it at one point we had to buy another one to appease them both! It is durable and has withstood the test of many chews and shredding! I would recommend this 110%!
Since we gave a home to a 6 year old Persian cat two years ago, we have never been able to encourage him to play at all. However, since introducing him to this toy he has turned into a kitten again. It's a delight to see how much pleasure and fun it has brought him. Highly recommended.
This is the best toy that I have ever bought for my 2 cats! One of them goes particularly crazy about it and leaps in the air doing frenzied backflips! I have bought 2 and they won't be seperated from them - carrying them around the house, up and down 4 flights of stairs. Brilliant!!
My two kittens absolutely love this. I'm amazed it's still in one piece, because they rip at the feathers doing their very best to destroy it, and yet it remains unscathed. My cousin bought us a different cat pole and they have ignored it completely. This one however, only has to be shown to then to make them go crazy!
I have an extremely large tom cat. He loves this toy and carries it around with him after he has finished jumping around after it like a lunatic so the other cats can't have it. More importantly it is very robust and has lasted quite well so far. As a comparison he completely destroys a typical 'feather on a string' type toy in under half an hour. This has lasted for two days so far and looks none the worse for wear. Highly recommended.
He can pounce, jump for, chase and chew this toy. He goes wild for it every time. It really makes him exercise. Hilarious to watch.
I have a rescue cat whose early life must have been awful. She has taken a long while to learn how to be a proper cat and enjoy life. Since I bought this toy she has finally learned what fun life can be. She demands her fun time by laying on her back( preferably near this toy so I can see her) and waving her feet in the air to attract my attention.
This cat dangler is absolutely brilliant. I have two 14 week old kittens. One's a norwegian and the other a ginger and white moggy. They cannot get enough of this, and have me in fits of laughter watching them play. I now have to hide it so as to get some peace.
I have one of those cats that likes to play (noisily) by herself after lights out, but will only half-heartedly push a toy around if I happen to be in the same room. Little will tempt her to play with me, although she's affectionate in every other respect. Whether she's shy, cool or is just torturing me, I don't know. However, this toy always gets a reaction and I get at least 10 minutes worth of boisterous play with her each evening when I wave the feather in her face or swish the stick around. Whether it's irritation or pleasure that engages her I haven't quite worked out, but at least with the feather dancer I get to SEE her have some exercise, rather than just HEAR her antics at 3am...
My one-year-old female cat goes absolutely bananas when I bring this one out. If I let her, she would literally kill herself playing with it: even when she's wheezing for breath she still chases after it!
This is really well designed and attractive. It's such a pleasure waving it about that I might be tempted even if Sylvie didn't like it - which fortunately she does! A bonus is that it seems to be indestructable. Treat yourself - and your cat of course!
When we first got our kittens, we bought this, along with the leather, and regular feather dancer toys. This has been by far and away the best purchase. It's very robust (all our other feather toys have since been decimated), and the addition of the solid pole, with the mylar type end seems to give it extra flexibility. Both kittens love it, and prefer it to all their other toys, they will play until they're panting, and then play some more. It's definitely worth the price, and I will be getting some more.
I have not seen a kitten go so mad for one of these. She grabs it, runs away with it and growls at anyone that approaches her! And my other kitten who's not as lively enjoys it as much.
Excellent value and hard wearing, even with 2 lively young cats. They can't get enough play time with this toy, to the extent they tire themselves out and I have to make the decision to put the toy away until a later time. Only problem is, I am running out of hiding places in the house !
My Tom cat loves this toy & would be happy to spend hours playing with it. It is not so interesting to my girl cat but that might be because he gets so excited that he swats her away if she tries to join in the fun. I'll have to get a second one!
