5.0 out of 5 stars Best cat toy around, like real pray! 23 May 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought one of these a while ago and it finally had it's day, so I just bought another one! My cats love it!

One of my cats loves it much more than the other 4, she will jump up in the air, catch it and growl, it is hilarious! She will then carry it out through the cat-flap, as I hold on to the rod and follow! Then I let go and I see the rod disappearing out through the cat-flap! We have as much fun with this as the cats! This is certainly the best cat toy we have ever bought; and very reasonably priced for the enjoyment both the cats, and we, get out of it!

After play we hide it away, but this one cat always knows where it is hidden and will not give up trying to root it out! We have to hide it very well now, as she will find it no matter where it is! It is like she smells it ;) The growling she makes is so funny and she really thinks she has a live bird in her mouth! The movement of this toy is so life-life, just like a real bird. It gives them the great exercise they need; especially being indoor cats. After the play we do the treating - this satisfies the whole 'hunt-kill and food-reward'! I always make sure I have enough replacement feathers in, as after a few weeks of using it, they do become a bit tatty and worn, especially if they take it outside when raining!

This really is in my opinion, the top cat toy. Buy it, you will not be disappointed, unless your cat is lazy and boring ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Now entering my cats in the 2012 Olympics... 17 Mar 2011
Unbelievable! Amazing! Incredible! Spectacular!... and that's just the acrobatics cats pull off trying to catch this thing!

''Da Bird'' is widely regarded by experts as the best cat toy there is - and my 2 cats agree. In fact, it's so potent a toy it's only recently become available in the UK (I used to have to import mine from the US!).

It's collapsable for easy storage and you can get different attachments for it too. I've tried them all but the original bird-like feathers get by far the best energetic, manic, and oddly positioned airborne results.

My 2 cats go bonkers every time I get it out the cupboard (oh yes, it has to be locked away!) and make all manner of weird clicks, chirps and calling sounds when I bring it out to play.

They go whizzing through the air, spinning, diving and weaving about just like ''Da Bird's'' feathered head does when I swing it around. And that's ''Da Bird's'' secret.

For those of you who fish, ''Da Bird'' works like a spinning lure on the end of a fishing pole. As you trace an arc through the air, the feathers spin on the end of the line and make a fluttering sound, mimicking a real bird I guarantee no cat can resist.

With a bit of practise you can get pretty good at controlling it too, and pretty soon you'll be 'casting' it on top of shelves, cupboards and door frames.

It's best used as intended though; by simply pulling it through the air, then whisking it past kitty, you can get him to jump and contort mid-air into all sorts of funny shapes and positions.

Backflips, star jumps, 360s and standing pikes into forward rolls - they're all possible when my cats are chasing this thing. In fact, I'm thinking of entering them in the 2012 Olympics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Returns youth to aging cats (and their owners) 3 April 2011
By L. Hennessy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
I got this for my mother's cat, Saskia. She's a chocolate tabby-point Siamese, who is very ladylike and graceful: she can't abide walking across wet lawns in the morning (rather, she will use the longer but drier option - the path around the edge); she likes to stretch elegantly when she awakens from her special cushioned area by the window, and she does so leg by leg. She follows this with a careful wash, starting with the paws.

She is very much a lady-like cat - she always has been. Even when under the influence of catnip, she never lost her decorum (she's the type of cat that instinctively knows what that word means).

Forget all that when this toy comes out - the lady is really a tramp. She goes absolutely mental - and I'm not exaggerating. She hares about the room after it, unable to concentrate on anything else. This is so much better than catnip.

The 'lure' is a feathery thing that spins attatched by string to a sort of fishing rod that you dangle and swing about. My mother doesn't like it because she says that, to a cat, it's exactly like a bird, and that it encourages her to kill them.

I've never seen Saskia let her hair down like this though - what behaviour from an old lady!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow - My cats will love me forever! 16 Oct 2012
By E. Goss
I don't know why but my cats love these 'Da Bird' brand toys. They are just feathers, a scrubber brush looking mouse and a piece of rabbit fur on the end of a string waved around by myself using a flexible rod. The cats go crazy for these, bringing one of these out for ten minutes is the event of the day and rates even higher than their daily treat of wet pouch food. A warning though; will need a secure cat-proof place to store these toys when not in use and a large play area is needed due to the cat acrobatics.
Every cat should have a 'Da Bird'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab wand toy 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase
My kitties love this, my male cats favourite toy before this came into the house was a bog standard mouse on a stick, that now lies untouched in the corner because he loves chasing the feathers on these that have a realist movement. I knocked it down a star because where the join in the middle is doesn't really hold very well and we end up just using the shorter part or having to tape it together, they would be better off just selling a solid wand.
