    GREAT CAT TOY = Even for Senior Cats

He is now an indoor only cat but loved to chase butterflies (moths) when he played outside. Upon arrival of toy I installed batteries, set it down and it was a hit! Butterfly moves just like a live one with inconsistent fluttering movements. It stops, pauses, and starts up again. Fully unpredictable! He loves to watch then pounce towards globe. To conserve battery life, toy operates for 1-1/2 minutes (still and flutters) and then stops until either a human or feline nudges ball and it starts up again. A TOTAL HIT! Totally recommend it!! … more

    Don’t Waste Your Money

    By Seajay on Sep 9, 2021

    I bought two of these, one for a friend and we both experienced the same thing. I expected a more “interactive” response. However, once it was started, it grabbed their attention, and they sat in front of it and watched for a second, turned their back and plucked a leaf from one of my plants to play I bought two of these, one for a friend and we both experienced the same thing.

    Was a bit disappointed

    By on

    I have a cat that has extra energy and needs to burn it off otherwise he's a bit of a jerk to our other cats. I was hoping this toy would be another interactive way for him to expend energy. Unfortunately the butterfly doesn't move much at all as it's right against the plastic globe so he lost interest quickly.

    Absolutely #1 no

    The butterfly gets stuck against the bubble wall and it's hard to keep it moving.

    The Technology could use some work

    By on

    I bought this from the Jackson Galaxy website. I believe before it was sold at Chewy. The thing didn't last very long and the moving part seized and will not move. I paid more than I wanted to for this thing but was hopeful we would get some good use out of it. It didn't even last a month.

    My cat unimpressed

    By on

    I purchased it because my cat does like toys that move, but this one didn't work out. She sniffed it a few times then completely lost interest. It stung a bit considering the price tag.

    Mesmerize your cat

    My cats love this toy because they activate it themselves. They don’t have to wait until someone turns it on. Great product.

    Cute toy, but pricey.

    By on

    Nice idea - the little butterfly flutters around inside the globe. It interested my 5 cats for about 5 minutes. I guess, as a consumer, I'm really just paying for the "Jackson Galaxy" name. Note to self: celebrity names attached to pet toys do not mean the toys will be used by the pet. Hard lesson.

    Broke instantly

    By on

    Went to the store and bought it - got home and put it on the floor and started it. the plastic bowl split in half. although the loose butterfly was loved more by my dogs after the bowl broke it was still super pathetic to break right as i turned it on
