It's a little expensive but definitely worth it. Both my cats love chasing this one - it even got my chubby girl moving and she's usually very lazy about play. The quality is excellent. I've only had it a few days but its well made and looks like it will last a long time as opposed to other feather toys that have broken after a few uses.
THE best dangler toy ever bought.
My boy, Chase, just LUVS it...he fetches it to me to play. With 'mouse' part in mouth & stick part trailing between his legs, he constantly walks around the house, day/night, but as he walks, he's also 'talking' ! The noises he makes just cracks us up. Bt then, with the stick trailing between his legs, he turns, pushing the stick & he tries to butt it against something hard & starts to get 'amorous' bt fails miserably, hence why we call it 'The Mrs' !!
I've previously tried getting my lad into action with a variety of other toys but he prefers lying on his side casually swiping the air. However, he LOVES or HATES?!) this one, jumping and spinning to catch it. We stick it in a scratching post between plays and he bats at it constantly there - I'm even holding it's "training" partly responsible for him recently starting to cat-up to the neighbourhood bully!
My 5 month ld Maine Coons both love this toy. It is a great design with a flexible end which prevents the pole from snapping (which has happened with another similar product I purchased). Good for cats who are larger but still want to play lots.
Took a chance on this one since my 3 cats (8 years, 5 years, 10 months) love the dangly toys with feathers and boas, which don’t last long, but are inexpensive.
This toy cost more but thought I’d give it a try. Bought some more feathers and boa toys as well.
Cats helped me unpack when the order arrived and to my surprise this toy was the one all of them made a beeline to and disputed over whose new toy it was.
Hope this one will last. Will end up getting another since it is such a hit.
Both our orientals love a dangler toy but most are destroyed pretty swiftly.. This however is the most durable and most loved (by both male & female cats) by far. After months of daily use our 10 month old boy finally chewed the end off - this then became the new favourite "fetch" toy, being dropped at our feet or on our laps to throw for him.. However despite its lack of tassels the dangler is still a favourite & not quite allowed to be binned as yet.. Well worth the extra few pounds :)
My cats are coming up to 10 and I thought they were just going a bit sedentary in their middle age. They both adore this toy, I find it in a different place every morning where they carry it round, they pester me to play with it and pounce on it and 'kill' it themselves as well. They have vast quantities of other teaser toys - feathers, fluff, mylar, you name it they have it, but this is the best thing ever.
He wanders around the house carrying it in his mouth, stick trailing between his legs. He sleeps with it and often growls when I go to pick it up. But he soon gets over it when I start swishing it around and he joins in the hunt enthusiastically.
After two years of daily loving the toy was looking a bit worn so I got him a second one. He exploded with joy that day, and that night he passed out exhausted on his back, one toy clasped in each front paw. A very happy kitty.
I've tried most cat toys out there, this one ranks in the top 3 for sure. I'm not sure why my three are so obsessed with it - do the leather tassels make it seem more alive? - but they are. My boy cat growls at it whenever it's in his mouth, and all three somersault over it. Buy this, you won't regret it.
We bought this for Tabitha, our Egyptian Mau rescue girl. She absolutely loves it! So much so she carries the fluffy toy bit around n her mouth and growls at our other cats. A big hit in our household.
Bought this to replace previous leather dangler toys which used to break really quickly as our cat used to play with them so much. However, this is so much better! More durable, and our cat loves it so much, whenever we are sitting on the sofa she comes in looks at us, looks at the toy, looks at us etc whilst making interesting squeaking noises until we play with her, even her older brother likes to play with it when he can get a look in! Massively recommended.
My two Savannah cats, 18 months old LOVE this toy ... I have only had it two days and they haven't left it alone, and play with it even when there isn't a human wagging it for them - it's the best money I have spent on a cat toy; it is so well made and looks like it will stand the test of time.
