Three or 4 years ago I purchased this toy for my cat Bella. It was well worn by the time I adopted a kitten, LuLu, 3 years later. By then it was only a string with a squeaking mouse. LuLu drags it to our bed every night, as a gift, after we are asleep. One morning as I was feeding her, I found the mouse, with the now ratty string, in her water bowl. I decided to run the soaking mouse and string through the dryer for 5 min. to possibly save her favorite toy. To my surprise, when removed from the dryer, the mouse was continuously squeaking. By bedtime we were over the continual noise so I took the mouse outside until the battery ran down and immediately ordered LuLu a new one. The old was brought back into the house the next day after the battery ran down. To my astonishment the mouse continued to squeak when played with. The new mouse, string, rod, and feathered toy arrived within 2 days. We have had many hours playing with this toy. My 4 year older cat, Bella, began to play with renewed interest. The amazing part is LuLu still loves and drags the ratty, no wand, no feathers, squeak returned, toy to bed with us every night. Thank you Chewy.com for the much loved Bounce & Pounce Wand cat toy with catnip.
My cat absolutely loves this toy. It's her favorite. But I find it ashamed that I spent basically $10 for a cat toy that only worked for 3 days.
The string on this toy is very fragile. My cat loves to chew on them, and within just 30 seconds, it is completely chewed apart with the wand and toy itself in two separate pieces. I had gone through maybe 10 of these, as they are my 1 year old cat Abigail's favorite toy. No big deal, they are relatively cheap and she absolutely loved chasing them. Well, a couple weeks ago, unbeknownst to me she had managed to get one down from a shelf and started chewing on it. By the time I found her, there was just a short string left on the wand, and the rest of it down her throat; she quickly chewed off the mouse hanging out of her mouth and choked down the string, well over a foot of it. What ensued was a cat owner's worst nightmare. After 5 days of the string lodged in her small intestines, vomiting, not being able to eat or drink, and a trip to a pet hospital to no avail, I was faced with the quickly approaching decision to have her euthanized. I decided to try one last time, and took her to a different pet hospital that kept her overnight and hydrated her aggressively. To everyone's amazement and relief, it finally descended into her colon and she passed it the following afternoon. After $3,000 in ER bills, 14 hours of combined pet hospital waiting room time, and an almost devastating emotional toll on my family, Abigail is still with us and doing well again. It's incredibly unfortunate that her favorite toy came so close to taking her young life. Please be very careful with these and keep them far away from where your cat can get them, and only let them play with it while supervised. God bless.
My cat Anubis loves this toy. To the point he play with another.
My cat loves this toy it’s his 3 rd one
Within one day, all the feathers were off, and the yarn had been pulled from the wand. Not very durable.
I have five adult cats, and they all LOVE this toy. The main attraction for them is the chirping sound it makes when it moves. Whenever they hear the chirp, they come running!! It is a great way to get them exercising :)
I gave this toy to my 3 week old kittens, and they were scared of the loud squeaking mouse. I snipped off the mouse, and they played with the rope/yarn string and had fun tearing off some of the feathers. Fast forward a month later, and the rope/yarn string has been really fuzzy and frayed, and I'm afraid the kittens might be ripping them off and eating them. So I snipped off the string. Now it's just a wand with some feathers in it. Fast forward to another month, and my male kitten still loves the wand. He would chase it with the most intensity as I wave it around, keeping at least 2 inches away from his nose no matter how fast I wave this. I toss the squeaking mouse around and they've grown brave enough to play with it. So overall, nice toy, just gotta snip off the string/rope/yarn off when it gets too frayed. You don't want your cat eating it, so don't leave this toy unattended. I would give this 4 stars if the yarn/string lasted longer. And 5 stars if the rope didn't fray at all. (but that'll be impossible, I know)
Got this for kittens I’m fostering. They can’t get enough of the touch-activated squeak. The feather part means two can be entertained at one time. Their favorite toy.
My grandcat thinks this is the greatest thing in the world. I got him two just in case one broke. He Carrie’s both of them around which is the cutest thing to see
