    A bust. :(

    By Mooette on Sep 24, 2020

    I should have read the review, but I really excited to get a Jackson Galaxy toy, and it looked so cute. I couldn't get my cat to touch this even with catnip sprayed on it, and that is her to-die-for. Basically everything said in previous reviews. Cat won't so much as look at, the butterfly is smashed I should have read the review, but I really excited to get a Jackson Galaxy toy, and it looked so cute.

    Overpriced Junk...

    By on

    This toy is a GREAT concept and my cat loved it for the 30 seconds it was in once piece. Within 30 seconds of opening and giving my cat the toy he broke it. The plastic dome just shattered. So I went and replaced it at the pet store same day. The exact same thing with #2 now I’ll add my cat is big 15 lbs but still I feel like this should be designed better with stronger glue and much more pet friendly... If this was actually made to last it would be an amazing toy.

    The hype was not worth it

    By on

    It's a cool concept, but expensive. We bought the toy for my dad's kitten, cause she needs more stimulation. We put the batteries in, the butterfly fluttered for one second and that was it. One second each time the ball moved. Needless to say, the kitten wasn't interested neither were the two fully grown cats. My mom feels like she wanted her money.

    Overrated and over priced

    By on

    After viewing all t he ads and reviews I thought this would be an ideal toy to stimulate activity in my cats. No interest. One looked at it for a while, the other just walked past. I tried it out on several occasions and finally just turned it off and put it away. Very disappointed. Clearly over rated.

    I had to give it one star, so I did. But I am not impressed

    By on

    I run a rescue for stray and feral cats and although our sanctuaries are large, the cats do go stir crazy. I saw this advertised on FB (should of known better) and I took a deep breath and bought one. Of the 15 cats here, only one was mildly interested and the interest did not stick long. I should have sent the money to pay down the vet debt instead of wasting my time on this. I was hopeful it would work-

    my two growing kittens destroyed this

    By on

    My kittens were able to open the sphere and totally destroyed the butterfly. See my photo. This is not safe for young cats

    Butterfly Sticks to the side.

    By on

    This would be a great toy if it worked right. the wire inside the ball is bent so that the butterfly rubs against the side of the plastic ball and can not be opened without damaging the toy to adjust it.

    WASTE OF MONEY

    By on

    I would not have paid $30 for this, but since I got it on closeout for $10, I thought I would try it. Two senior cats and 1 youngster and only my oldest showed any interest at all - he sat and watched it about 1 min and walked away. I should take it back, but it was so hard to open - I destroyed the box trying to get it open.

    Garbage don’t waste your money

    By on

    I have 4 cats, 2 have special needs. $30 is a lot to spend on 1 toy but if it helped I figured let’s try it. The “butterfly” only flaps at the bottom of the ball. My cats took one look at it, looked at me and walked away. Don’t bother wasting your money!

    Short lived

    By on

    They were enthralled initially, but because the butterfly is behind plastic, they can never "win." So they lose interest quickly. Too bad. Genius idea, but needed follow through. Especially at $30. A cat's gotta win at least some of the time.
