I've been wanting to buy one of those "Da Bird" cat toys lately even though they're made with real feathers. I'm not going to! But I've never seen my cats get so excited or play so hard as I have with that toy. The way the feathers spin and flap through the air is very bird-like, and the long flexible wand makes for a pretty big radius of play.

Have you guys found anything similar for your cats?

What toys do your cats react the most to?

My cats don't bat toys around on their own too much...I need to be moving it around for them to chase before they really get into it.

My mom has cats and she has this "cat dancer" toy that is literally just a wire with little bits of cardboard on the end. Her cats go APE **** over it. No idea why.

We will make a yarn Pom-Pom and attach it to a strand of yarn. Simple, old-fashioned, but always a big hit with the cats. They also like rolling around light balls, like ping pong balls.

@Hazelsqueak Thanks I'll be ordering one of those soon!

@Mbeth My cats like shoestrings as DIY toys. I'll see how they like ping pong balls :)

@mavrick45 what's it called/where can I get it?

@Sax I do believe they are called "Dragon Fly Cat Toys"

my wife is the one that got it so im not sure if she got it off amazon or found it in a store ... but a quick google search should tell you if they are in any stores in your area :D

my cat loves a sock filled with catnip! He throws it around in the air using his mouth and then start rolling around. I wish I had a cell I would post it up. It's so funny!:heart_eyes: He loves ping pong balls too.

Yes! and use them as kick pillows!
I have 7 cats and each has their own favorite.
Large hair scrunchies are a favorite
But this toy was really worth buying, 5 out of 7 play, and the others like to watch-https://www.chewy.com/smartykat-hot-pursuit-electronic/dp/159669

My feline friend can get excited over a long blade of grass if it's moved in a way that taunts her to chase it. She loves this playtime.

Hooray I bought something that looks like your tree for cats, only less for one cat.
She likes to lie there for a long time. If in the future I will take a couple of cats to myself, then I will buy it as you have.
Thank you for inspiring me!)
