I mistook this toy for the original Cat Dancer which I have ordered several times in the past. It held up well and didn't disappoint. This version from Frisco is not only a cheap and disappointing imitation because the wire does not perform as the original; it is dangerous. Within a couple of weeks of receiving, the cardboard began unraveling and shedding into small pieces as shown in the photo. I ordered a replacement thinking it was an outlier and the same thing happened. This presents a clear choking risk. Whatever you do, find an authentic Cat Dancer as I did on Amazon. It will give your kitty hours of safe fun!
My cats LOVE this. I just hold it and let them bop it. They think they’re “doing the work,” and they are. Amazing how something so simple can be so fun for a cat. To them, it really simulates a small foe or insect and they just can’t resist it, especially since their actions swatting at it make it move. There are several in a package and they last a long time, considering the abuse they get from my large Tom & my dainty old lady cat. A GREAT value!
I have ordered these wire teaser cat toys for years. My cats love them! However, this time they weren't the same. The wire is different. Not as strong, doesn't move around well. It's feels like a lesser quality product. I ordered three and they are all the same. I had thrown the old wire away as it was pretty beaten up but ended up digging it out of the garbage.
