I was looking forward to this toy for my kittens, but right out of the package it started to shed, badly, and it didn't stop. So yet another toy I've bought recently that will end up on the trash. I had no idea how hard it is to find quality toys for cats these days; how frustrating.
Sadly as my headline states one of my 4 cats played with this toy once and the seams ripped apart spilling white poly-fill and catnip all over the place, not to mention, red fuzzy cloth and threads. The thing is the cats really like this toy. I've stuffed it back together & have sewn it back together so they can continue playing with it. Hopefully this was a one off. We previously had a tan and brown one for years until it just had to be replaced.
This is a sturdy, well-made wand toy that should last until the end of time. Unfortunately, that doesn't really matter because neither of my cats are super enthusiastic about it. They showed a mild interest in it the first couple days, but after that they didn't really want to engage much with it. I would say the handle definitely needs to be longer and the snake a little bit less big and girthy.
My baby goblin will only play with garbage and spring toys despite my attempts to buy him the newest and nicest things. I took a chance on this and I am so glad I did because he LOVES it. There is a little bell in the snakes head so it isn’t a silent toy, but absolutely worth the purchase. My cat is a rough player and it is holding together well so far.
It seems to be too fat or thick to keep the interest of my cat. Needs to be remodeled. Add a louder rattle sound.
I have 4 cats and not a one will touch it or chase it. It’s cute but quite large.
Head too heavy for it to be enticing. Also doesn't shimmy as well as the other Kong teaser. Donating mine to the shelter.
They loved it for 5-6 hours. Then they lost interest. The sneak head is heavy.
I bought this and didn't realize it contains catnip. Need to exchange
This Trio still play with their snake and love it. The feathers didn't stay on very long but the rest of the snake is still hanging around.
