Da Bird Toy
when they say hide it, they mean it, in a good way
We had gotten this toy, and already need a new feather from constant playing from both our cats. The main reason for getting this brand is that you can replace the toy part without having to buy a whole new rod and string, as the accessories easily clip onto the snap, which resembles one used for fishing. The only downside is that the cats like it so much, the one would drag it all over the house, including up and down the steps to get us to play with him. Not something one wants to hear at night time. So hiding the toy when not using it is pretty good advice. Will be good more attachments soon.

cats are bonkers over this toy
got this for my parent's two cats and they go absolutely bonkers for it! it has helped tremendously to get their shy and skittish siamese to actually come out into the middle of the room, engage in play AND play with their other cat! they both really enjoy chasing and jumping after this toy. it's so much better than just the typical feather teaser on a string. the only thing i would make note of is that you need a relatively large, open space to use it most effectively. the string and pole are both on the long side, so you need room to really get it going to get the cats interested in play. i'd also recommend putting it away after play time because it tends to get mauled if left unattended! definitely recommend this toy and will be getting one for my cats in the future!

Cat's favorite toy
My cat loves this toy! A great way to interact with your cat and great exercise, encouraging the cat to jump, run, pounce. Brings out his hunting instincts (mine will even "chatter" at it like real prey). He even knows where I hide it and will let me know he wants to play!

My cat went absolutely crazy for this toy. We played with it for the first time yesterday.
She was chasing it and jumping for it so energetically that I was almost concerned she would get so excited she might collapse.
I had to hide it in the closet when we finished our play session.
Each time I let her "capture" it, she marched proudly around the house with it in her mouth, while I walked behind holding the wand.
You could probably use this toy successfully from a seated position too, if you wanted to stay in your chair.
