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.
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.
