Cat really liked this toy but when I cut off the the plastic tags that held the toys in place, my cat started in on the wings of the dragonfly. The wings are soft, the toys are small, he started to chew on them - worried he might swallow and choke on them. If the toys were a bit bigger, and not so soft it would be a great toy for my cat. Otherwise felt it was safer to take it away from him.
My cat has zero interest in trying to pull the toys off the velcro side of the leaf. Sometimes I can get him to chase the caterpiller, but nothing else. I hide treats under the insects to try to get him interested and so far he still doesn't care. I've had the toy 2 - 3 weeks now. I definitely like it more than he does.
I didn’t know what to expect with this toy…but after buying one, my cats were FIGHTING for their turn with it! It’s very crinkly and the bugs were easy to restick to the leaf. After a few months, I had to replace it only because my cat chewed on some of the critters so much that they were deformed and lost some of their original charm. This item is definitely a cat-pleaser that will keep your kitty entertained, and for such a reasonable price why not give it a chance?
I added this because I needed a few more bucks to get free shipping and it had great reviews. I honestly thought it seemed a little stupid...toys velcro'd onto felt. But I went with it, and I'm glad I did. They haven't stopped playing with it since it arrived. I'm sure the catnip has a lot to do with that, but also the crinkle noise the leaf makes. I have a 4 yr old and a 14 yr old. They both play with it, get the insects off and bat them around the house. The 17 lb 14 yr old sleeps on top of it. I hear the crinkle sound all throughout the night. It's a win.
I was not real sure about ordering this as my cat is not a real catnip fan, but she surprised me. She is small and around 8 lbs, but she pulls the stuffed animals off the leaf and tosses them in the air as well as rolls around on the leaf. She really seems to like it.
Although my cat doesn’t really pay attention to the leaf part, he is OBSESSED with the little critters that he pulls off. He protects the yellow one like it’s his baby, carrying it around, and loves to play fetch. Although he doesn’t use the leaf, I still find use with it because it calls for easy cleanup as I can just stick the small toys back on when he’s done. My cat constantly loses the small toys under my couch/fridge/etc however, and I have no problem fishing them out but they are getting dusty easily! It would be nice to have a “refill” of the small toys, because I can only spot treat them so many times before I fear it may get moldy (HASNT HAPPENED YET) or for when I’m too lazy to fish them out haha.
I added this to my order to hit the shipping minimum on another purchase and i’m so glad I did. My cats immediately went for it even though a pack of silvervine, their favorite, was on top of it. They love batting the little critters around and bunny kicking them. They also love trying to pull them off of the little leaf, especially flipping it over. We’ve had so many laughs and cute moments in just a few hours of getting it out of the box.
I have a cat rescue and this toy is a huge hit. Cats are actually fighting over it, I need to order more. The leaf is pretty big so cats love to lay or roll on it. It is filled with crinkle paper. The 3 insects are light and easy to grab or throw in the air. It is also a very visually pleasing toy, quite pretty
Chicken cannot for the life of him figure out how I keep getting the bugs off of this darn leaf. Velcro is a foreign concept to cats. But he's sure going to keep trying and we're going to call that ✨️enrichment✨️.
Olly isn't too much into toys but this one is fantastic. He likes to sit on the leaf to hear it crinkle. The ladybug is his #1 favorite. We play fetch endlessly! He brings it back to me in his mouth like it's a trophy caught mouse and drops it at my feet to keep the interaction going strong.
