Rated 5 out of 5 by Seraphym Sweet kitty to ferocious wildcat!
My "Big Rig" (Rigby) absolutely positively ADORES this thing. It's insane; he's had plenty of toys in the past that he loved, and honestly the most basic simple things enamor him, like a plain old string or a newspaper. This NatGeo teaser toy brings out the BEAST in him -- he's an indoor Maine Coon mix (unfortunately adopted as front paw-clawless), and it's the first time we've FULLY seen him in his instinctual-hunter element with a toy (he's caught lizards and grasshoppers on our patio, but we never get to see the actual hunt). He stalks it, shakes his bottom, and pounces like a little lion, lol. He chases the thing with ferocity, shaking it in his mouth, clamping down, running off with it, laying on top of it, everything. It's at the point now where he begs to play in the evenings, meowing endlessly, looking up at one of us, down at the stick, then up again as if to say "yeah...soooo....we gonna do this, or...? what's the hold up..?" He's getting the exercise he needs, and we get free hilarious entertainment and an satisfied, healthy cat. As far as the quality, since he mostly plays with the string attachment, I can't vouch for the durability of the feathered ones, but ol' stringy has held up pretty well given the amount of abuse; maybe because he has no claws?. The bell came off after a couple of weeks, though, and the green cap on the end of the stick won't stay on anymore. I would kill for some replacement attachments, though. Definitely needed. We love this toy!

by Doogy Onyx LOVES these.
I just ordered this set as a Christmas present for my lovely cat Onyx. She's had this exact set before and loves for me to play with her using them.

I have a highly active bengal cat. This is the only toy he consistently loves. And I mean LOVES. He's obsessed with it. The only problem is that it falls apart almost immediately. All components are poorly made. I've bought probably 15 packs (over $150 dollars!!) and some have broken with the first swipe (and he's not violent). Either the string separates from the stick, or the feather falls off the string, or the metal lock gives out. I don't expect it to last forever, obviously, but even a week would exceed my expectations.

My cat, Pythagoras, loves this toy. I bought both versions and he is such a happy cat. My only complaint is that I wish they sold replacements. Pi completely destroys the extensions with feathers because he loves them so much. It would rock his world if replacements became available.
