I bought this toy for my two, very playful, indoor-only, cats. Hunting is their favorite pastime and they love other interactive toys I bought them so far. Unfortunately, this toy completely confuses them to the point they just sit and stare into it. The butterfly moves too fast and the base of the toy is oddly shaped that it keeps shaking, making a huge noise. A little heads up to the manufacturer - cats don't like to approach noisy things. I'm afraid this one is going to the bin soon.

Cats love it, but…
My Maine Coons love this toy, but the wire on the butterfly gets flattened by them in minutes, which leaves the butterfly dragging on the floor. Perhaps if it had the same type of coil it has at the butterfly end at the base, it would last longer… great toy otherwise, but the wire that gets flatten by the cats in no time takes away from it…

We went crazy for this annoying a fly, killed it hundred times and is never dead.
We like it.
Is a bit too noisy,but ok. The think is,is flying to fast, would be absolutely briliant if the toy would have a few different speed options
But no regrets

My cat loves chasing and hunting whatever moves.. But she was terrified of this, it spins way too fast! She could only look at it and then back away fast. Tried so many times to see if she'd take to it but she never did, it spun around so fast she'd no hope of even touching it. Pure waste of money

Butterfly Cat Toy
Having a cat with leukemia it’s hard to keep them occupied when they’ve spent the first two years of their life outside and now confined. We’re forever trying to find things to keep her entertained and whether this is switched on or off she’s rolling around playing with it. Great product and came with plenty replacement butterfly’s. Fantastic product.

Excellent toy for blind kitties!!!
I have a blind cat and it is very hard finding toys that she's able to interact with and this toy is PURRRFECT for her. It makes the perfect little flutter noise that keeps her interested and helps her track her prey. If it's on... she is playing with it.

This is a really effective toy and the cats love playing with it.

Maya (4months British Shorthair) absolutely loves it! I couldn't imagine any better toy other than this one. Oh yes... The feathery one which is one of her fav too from this website!

What a joy
My cat willow loves this. She can turn it on and off herself lol. The added butterflies are great so should last quite a while. Now she’s my most anxious cat so was surprised as out of them all I’d of thought she’d be most worried about the noise but no lol it’s hers lol.

The butterfly goes quite fast so if you have a nervous cat it can spook them a little but my younger cat loves it

Cats would give it 5 stars
Great fun but my kitten flattens the wire supporting the butterfly in minutes leaving it dragging on the floor. I tried to support the wire by wrapping a straw around it but it only helps a little.
Both my 2 Maine Coons love this toy and play for hours with it.

Enzo and Terri absolutely love it.
My two Siamese Cats really love this toy. They have played with it for three weeks, the original butterfly is still holding together. (You get 4 butterflies with the toy, and replacements are really good value and available from Zooplus)

Great but timer function no longer included on toy
My cats love this. They are on their second one and it's good you can get spare butterflies now. They sit tapping it until you turn it on!
The original one turned off after 3 minutes but it looks like they have changed the toy as I have now tried 3 others and the timer function doesn't work an any of them, which makes me think they design has changed and there isn't a timer function anymore. Shame as it was a useful feature but doesn't stop my cats loving it.

Such fun :)
My two bengals love this toy :)
It comes with four butterflies, so should last well even with two bengals.
Really great toy and definitely recommend

My three cats love it. They sit around it together and paw the butterfly to each other. It keeps them amused and they seem fascinated by the movement of the butterfly.

😻😻😼😼 2 out of my 4 approved
All 4 cats loved this at first, the first butterfly didn't last long (glad there are now replacements) 2 cats are now not interested anymore but our 2 kittens still love it, one of them likes to pick it up by the wire and bring it to me to turn on usually at 4am (not so good when it's dropped on your head)
Not for fussy cats...
I wanted to get something that my cat can play with by himself and I don't need to do much as he is 6 months old and he wants a lot attention and play all the time. This looked interesting with many positive reviews. However when I switch it on he watches the butterfly for a minute and then he walks away... If the butterfly is switched off he is not interested in at all so this one goes into cupboard with his other stuff that he doesn't like!
