Petoyo™ Birds Flying Feather Cat Teaser Toy Review


I have been a cat lover all my life. I was given a male cat, Snuggles, when I was in the first grade and he lived for 14 years. I never thought I would own a cat until I took in a female calico cat, Gaby, on December 26, 2007 and in 2009 I took in a stray Tabby cat, Fred. Sadly, Fred passed away last summer.

Now, I just have Gaby, who is an older cat (I don't know her exact age). She's not a very playful kitty, but she does love any toys with catnip and she likes to the chase the laser lights.

This afternoon I received the Petoyo™ Birds Flying Feather Cat Teaser Toy in an oversize box from Amazon.com. I picked the "natural" toy that has feathers and a small bell that are attached to a fishing swivel. The swivel is attached to a black cord and the cord is attached to a 20-inch rod (flexible plastic). You are suppose to wave the cord back and forth in the attempt to recreate the movement of a bird. Though domestic cats are pretty tame, they are still felines, so deep down they still have hunter instincts in them, so this toy should get their attention.

"What Is This?"

"I Can't Catch It."
"It's Mine!"

I have had a hard time introducing new toys to Gaby that doesn't have catnip in them, but I didn't have a problem with this toy. I dropped the feathers on the floor and she quickly sneaked over to investigate. I lifted up the feathers with the rod, began waving it around and Gaby went crazy. She absolutely had to catch the feathers. Now Gaby has a short attention span, so she got bored and left the room to get a drink of water. I left the toy on the floor. She returned to the room a few minutes later and went directly to the feathers. Gaby began playing with the toy again. While the toy seems to be sturdy for the time being, I dont' know how long the feathers are going to last as Gaby is determined to yank them out with her teeth. Overall, I'm pretty impressed with the Petoyo™ Birds Flying Feather Cat Teaser Toy and Gaby seems to be happy with it too.

You can purchase the neat cat toy on Amazon.com!
