Just Wow. It got my fat elderly cat up and moving.

Ok, the price point is high for a cat toy, but based on how ALL my cats reacted, it's so worth it.

My 2 year old kitten won't let me stop playing. We've been going almost non stop for 2 hours.

My 15 yr old played for the first time in 3 years, and he's fat, so he needs it. (We've been trying to make him play, but nothing has interested him until now. Timed feeding with high protein, low carb wet food for the last year, don't yell at me Jackson)

My 14 yr old went after it with the same enthusiasm she has when she hunts the hornets that get into the house...she's not very bright.

And my diabetic cat in remission ( 1 month off the juice, yay! Never over weight) was playing like a kitten again. She's 12.

Take that into consideration with the space saving and the fact that when my pica cat eventually demolishes the feathers, I can just put new ones on the wand, I'm not regretting the extra money. Honestly, I'm probably going to buy a second one for the second level of the house so we don't lose it.

I'm in love, my cats are in love. What more can I say?

I didn't know he could move like that

My Fluffy Chonky Void is very picky when it comes to toys so when his aunt got my boys this for Christmas, I thought my skinny boi would go crazy over it but Jaspurr, would not play with it because he isn't very active. Boy was I wrong. This toy brought out the slinky boi in chonky void. He leaps and bounds in ways I have never seen him move while interacting with this toy. I will definitely be purchasing more products by Jackson Galaxy in the future.

OMG! My cat's are CRAZY for these!

I purchased a 3 toy bundle for my nine (yes 9!) "furkids" for Christmas and they are absolutely LOVING these toys! It is astounding to us how much height and airtime my kitten is able to achieve when she's got her "mojo on". (She's gotten at least 3 feet in height but it's hard to catch pics of but that white blur below was our best effort).

I think the most popular of all has been the "helicopter" air prey toy because of how it naturally spins a bit in the air but I was dismayed by the fact that the baby has already shredded and destroyed several of the feathers, effectively crippling it. (That's what cats do ya know) I love that the toys can be clipped on and off the wand but I REALLY wish you had some replacements for sale! The wand is perfectly fine and it seems a bit wasteful to buy a whole new wand when all they need is new feathers to shred. Any chance at all this might be something you will consider carrying in the future? I would likely order a case!

I attached a pic of Calypso dreaming about new Jackson Galaxy toys and checking the tree in case there were any hiding in it and our Prince Edward looking dapper. :)

My cat's favorite toy!

My cat LOVES this toy! It's a lot of fun watching him chase and jump for this toy and he never gets tired of it! Best $15 spent on a toy.

Parts of this toy are ingenious, other parts are downright dangerous

Armand loves cat teasers and wands so I always look for ones that extend a few feet because he likes to hide and run/pounce from a distance.

Pros:
That telescoping arm - WOW! Longest reach on any wand I've tried by far. More of a fishing rod!
Feather motion - So cool! The feathers are long and very stiff; the attachment hitches and floats in a way that mimics real flight. Makes every other cat teaser with feathers at the end look like amateur hour.
Fun for all - it's just fun to handle. The telescoping rod and even the attachment at the end have a nice heavy substantial feel (though the thin, stiff string throws it out of balance)

Cons:
Retractable string: Thin and stiff with no give to it, which is oddly imbalanced with the heavy plastic clip attachment at the end. Which brings me to:
**HARDWARE ON THE FEATHER** This is the "dangerous" aspect referenced in the review title. Normally wand toys have feathers just sticking out of or sewn on to the ends. There is a hard plastic clip at the end of this string, which attaches to a loop on the feather attachment. Well, a few minutes after unpackaging this and playing, the feather attachment got bent and twisted up in the string itself, which binds up and shortens the string and the feathers. I'm used to waving and whipping these toys around for my cat without fear of hurting him because it's just cloth or feathers. I admit, I unthinkingly did the same with this because it's just a souped up version of that type of cat teaser toy. But within literally a few minutes of opening the package and playing with a very excited kitty, I accidentally bonked Armand on the head with with the plastic part of the feather attachment that was caught up somewhere in the twisted string. Normally this cat is unfazed by *anything*--I assure you he has been bonked by accidentally dropped objects in the kitchen many a time, and often doesn't care. Well, he got this look on his face and shot out of the room. I went to find him and he was curled in the corner of my closet. I've tried taking the toy out a couple times since and he's gotten that panicked looked again and high-tailed it to the closet. Happened this morning and I haven't seen him since.

For pricey products that are supposed to be designed by some kind of cat genius, this is far from idiot proof (hi, I'm the idiot) and definitely carries an injury risk. I'm just sad that I ruined what could've been a favorite toy for my boy after it malfunctioned right off the bat. He was so engaged for those first few minutes--but that's literally all the time we got before the bonk incident. I'm glad it didn't hit him in the eye.

TL;DR a really neat idea with potential but not well thought out/executed. Must be handled much more delicately than the teaser toys it's deigned to mimic because of clunky hardware that can hurt your cat.
