We bought the cylindrical version of this toy and two of our boys went nuts over it. When it came apart after only a few days of play, we thought we'd give this very similar toy a try. Pfffftt. What a dud. Not one of them want anything to do with it. One of the cats carried the cylinder-shaped toy around everywhere with him and he won't even look at this one. I don't understand...this one is made of the very same stuff! LOL
Good for chewers
on Jan 2, 2019
My big boy is a chewer and kicker. This toy is large enough for him to really attack. He licks the feathers, bites the head, and tosses it around. Doesn’t play with it all the time, but when he does he enjoys it.
Toy is too heavy
on Sep 27, 2018
I liked the description of the product and thought my cats would really love it, but after the initial excitement of getting a new toy, they'd decided not to play with it. It is extremely heavy. Like, break a knick-knack or a window, heavy. My fetcher won't fetch it and my tosser won't toss it. They did like the tail feathers at first inspection and it is put together nicely. I will probably take it to the shelter.
Questionable quality-- unraveled quickly
on Aug 18, 2018
I'm not sure whether my cat liked this, because her first time really going at it caused the thing to unravel. We can still get her to play with the half-unraveled mouse, but she won't go at it on her own.
Hey! He Likes It!

I got this for my big cat Jake. He mostly likes to be held and sleep all day, with intense F.R.A.P. (Frenetic Random Activity Period) once or twice a day. Too much saved energy but other toys did not interest him. THIS one however is different. Without catnip, this is HIS toy. He loves when we throw it right over his head so he can jump and snag, and will play with it for a long time by himself even. Easy to bat, bite, carry, pounce on, etc, and it takes the beating. Heavy for good tossing, but the hard core is noisy when he starts playing with it at night. 5 Stars because Jakey likes it and he gets good play and exercise out of it.
Love the feather tail!

My feline tends to destroy toys and the nose has already frayed within the first 30 seconds of interacting. Not bad, but she's only batted it around once or twice since and now it just sits in her toy box. Overall, I like some the "natural" components used in producing the toy (feathers, seagrass). The only thing I would change is the chunk of plastic inside the toy, which helps hold the mouse shape. I would prefer it if the toy was hollow - it would be even more eco-friendly.
Not to bad

Good catnip-free toy
on Nov 14, 2017
I wouldn't say my cat is in love with this, but she does seem to like it. I think the texture is a draw, as it catches well on her claws and aids in flipping it around. Overall a nice addition to her toybox.
My cats love toys they can toss and flip around

I like this toy bc my kittens are entertained thoroughly. They carry it in their mouth and flip it around with ease.
