My cat loves chasing these things around until the big metal clip hits her somewhere and you can't control it. You can see it hurts. I would like to suggest to the Manufacturer to maybe make a softer plastic clip safer for all cats.
I bought this for my cats about a month ago. They love it! However about a week ago I had to glue the eyelet that connects the cord to the retractable pole on the end back in. Then I was playing with the cats, not rough at all, and the middle section of the pole broke almost in half. I do not think I will be buying this again as it only lasted a month.
It looks like you can use it at different lengths. Not so it has to be extended to use. Also broke the first time is was used, the tip separated from the stick.
I have MS and I have a hard time with playing with wands because I can't move around very well. This wand allows me to literally toss it in a 10ft x 20ft area and my cat gets tons of exercise! Instead of me getting tired first, she does! I sit in my recliner and I can reach the couch, part of the kitchen and it can even hit the ceiling!! The ONLY way you'll break it is trying to pull it away from your cat, you need to let them mouth it for a minute, then, when they let their guard down, commence playing! Your cat will make amazing, twisted, aerial stunts! I like to move slowly at times, then I toss it rapidly up, down, and sideways. We play hide and seek behind the furniture, or around corners, all from the comfort of my chair that's positioned against the wall, in the middle of the room! Lots of fun for BOTH of us!! Occasionally, my mini Schnauzer will get in on the action!! It's hilariously fun to watch them both in action!! LOL!👍🤪
I must say I'm very impressed!! My cat Jasper absolutely loves his new "toy" it definitely has him jumping to new heights!
If I could give this product an A+++++ I would! The Handle at the bottom is so much more easy on the hands. Especially for those with arthritis. The wand part feels and moves like a Fly Fishing rod. The feather attachments are okay. The ball joint is so so. Just clip it to the ring if it comes apart. Even with this issue, it is still the best Wand toy ever. I have had cats for 65 years and know my cat toys, lol!
We got two of these and both broke in the first week. Flimsy, not well made. End just fell off of one and lure flew off another.
I like the wand as it is nice and flexible like a fly rod so it's easy to flick the fluff around. I don't like the hook as it is too heavy if our cat is bitting at the fluff. I installed a jump ring instead. I wish the feathers were bound with leather as well, much easier on the cat's mouth.
Unfortunately, this is my second time owning a Pet Fit For Life cat toy wand. I have a 1 year old high energy foster cat who needs play 2-3 times a day. Both times, the metal hook part of the wand where you attach the toy has broken off within 2 weeks of owning it. If you need to use this often/with aggressive play from a high energy cat, spare yourself and don't. Cheaply made and a waste of money.
My girls love this toy! The wand is super long and flexible. Roxie loves to chase the feathers or fur attachments, and we can whip around a large section of the living room because of its design. Both cats enjoy the different clip on options. My girl Noodles even enjoys the chase without an attached toy, just the clip! Great all around. Highly recommend.
