I am amazed at how much my cat loves this feather want. He stalks it, jumps high in the air to catch it and chases it all over. It makes me laugh out loud to see him make these huge jumps high in the hair to catch the feathers in his claws. What astonishes me is how well the wand is holding up. My cat is quite strong and when he grabs the feather tip, he tugs pretty hard and chews at it before I pull it away. The wand is really lasting well and giving our family a lot of fun with the cat.
