My daughter has 2 cats - one loves to play and the other is lazy. Both cats go crazy for this. It is like a fishing rod and can be short or long - it comes with interchangeable toys - her cats love the caterpillars! They jump all over each other to get to them. The cats drag it all over the house! Perfect gift for someone with cats - I have 2 other daughters with cats and will be buying more for them! The pictures came out terrible because the cats were moving so fast!!
