Best Cat Toy EVER
5 Star Review   By MissDallas on PETCO - Mar 18, 2012   

Over the years, I have bought every cat toy sold for my babies, and this one is hands down their favorite. It's made with real bird feathers so when it gets going, it makes the same noise a flying bird does and the cats go insane. When I'm tired and put it away, I have to hide it or they will drag it around the house to get me to play with them! Or if they see where I put it, they will try to get it and bring it to me. That's right - my cats bring this toy to me demanding to play! Even my older cats, who don't play anymore, join in the fun and jump a little when the feathers fly by them. We've had many toys that look the same, but they weren't made with real bird feathers and didn't make the noise the cats go nuts over, so the result wasn't the same. Da Bird is the best cat toy I've ever bought!

Cheap and poorly made
1 Star Review   By kjd88 on PETCO - Mar 14, 2012   

I got one play session out of i t before my cat tore the feathers from the base it was glued into. The 2 part wand is ridiculous and when you get a good speed going or the cat catches it, the whole thing separates and then you are chasing a string with a feather and a pole attached. Useless toy.

Cat loves this toy!
5 Star Review   By eggbert on PETCO - Mar 3, 2012   

My cat loves Da Bird. This is the second full one we've had (I lost track of how many feather attachments we've had) because she's really hard on them! She's a large, strong cat! "Normal" sized cats might not be able to destroy them like she can! But, she actually also likes playing with the string on the "wand" itself if she manages to pull the feathers apart! She's a fetcher & likes to try to drag the toy here & there, but has trouble with the full "wand", but luckily I can take it apart & she can manage 1/2 of it! The feathers on this one are bright pink & she is even more attracted to the toy. This is now one of those toys that's added to her Christmas list, along with an extra attachment!

Da Bird << can you say "new favorite toy" - meow!
5 Star Review   By WheelsRamblerAndNewman on PETCO - Feb 10, 2012   

our human, portlandbabe, bought us this toy and WE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! It's like kitty crack - when our human twirls it around and around, it makes the sound of bird wings fluttering and all we want to do is hunt and attack our prey - we jump, chase and catch that sucker until we're out of breath and panting - it's the best exercise ever and when portlandbase says "da bird" command - we come running and sit at the closet door where she hides it from us when not in use - otherwise, it'd be loved to pieces!

May Not be for Cats Who Play Too Rough.
3 Star Review   By Whiskerkisses on PETCO - Feb 4, 2012   

My kitty went absolutely insane for Da Bird! She loved the spinning movement (and sound) of the feathers. She looked just like a wild cat hunting down her pray. Here is the problem though... She LOVES feather toys TOO much. Almost every feather toy I give her she snatches up in her mouth and starts growling (like a dog). If you try to take it away from her she attacks! She has some serious guarding issues with "pray". Some feather toys fair better then others, and Da Bird did not hold-up to my cat's rough standards. Within the first half-hour of play, she ripped 2 small feathers out, and the very thin black line was chewed through. The next play session (after I tied the line back together), she pulled the two long feathers out from the black rubber base, and proceeded to chew them up. I'm not saying this is normal cat behavior, but if your cat is as destructive on toys as my cat is, save your money!

THE.BEST.CAT.TOY.EVER.
5 Star Review   By Kotek on PETCO - Feb 2, 2012   

If you have a cat that loves chasing things around, this is a must-have. The feathers are constructed in way that makes this toy twirl and dance in the air as you play with it. My cat is absolutely fascinated, we play until he pants, and he won't quit! The toy is extremely easy to handle and maneuver, so your hand will not get tired from whirling it around. You can even lie down on your bed as your cat chases it around. Definitely my cat's NO 1 favorite! The only problem i've experienced is that the string separated from the feathers within the first week of play. This is very easily fixed, you just tie it together again.

This product is cheap
1 Star Review   By DboiiSlice on PETCO - Jan 6, 2012   

The toy itself is cheap plastic. The two pieces that fit together constantly slide-off of each other making it difficult to play with the cat, because you end up holding half of the stick and the other half is thrown halfway across the room. The string that ties Da Bird to the plastic stick broke within three days of use. Poor Quality toy.

5 Star Review   By RescueCat on PETCO - Dec 27, 2011   

I thought....well, this is just a toy with dangling feathers. Ok - maybe...but they love it! My cats try and take off with it like it is a bird! I literally have to pry it out of their mouths. And more than once they have managed to get the whole thing away from me and drag it through the house. They absolutely love it! I highly recommend it for any cat!

Da Bird is Da Best!
5 Star Review   By crabcakes on PETCO - Sep 4, 2011   

My kitten-cat (9-10 months) loves Da Bird. He gets wonderful exercise chasing it, but loves most of all jumping for it. He enjoys sneaking up on it when I hide it behind something. When he catches the feathers he's one happy cat. This is a morning and evening exercise, that is when he isn't begging for it during the day, too.

A Favorite of Cats
5 Star Review   By Fisch12 on PETCO - Jun 3, 2011   

This is a fairly expensive toy, but the cats love it. It worth paying a little extra to know that it'll be a hit (instead of wasting money on a toy that the cats won't like). You just need to know in advance that the cats will eventually rip it apart because the toy is made of feathers, so it's good to get a replacement 'bird' section.

Don't buy the NEW style!!! 2 Sticks you put together
1 Star Review   By Badkitty5961 on PETCO - Apr 22, 2011   

I have always bought DaBird toy for my cats. They ALL have LOVED it. Recently the Stick part with the string came apart after over a years use and much HARD playing! I went to replace it but the design is different now. Instead of one long stick...it comes in 2 halfs? This new design is HORRIBLE!! The string twists up EVERYTIME you use it and you have to stop and unwind it. Totaly a waste of my time and now less fun time for my cats. Look for and ONLY buy the FULL STICK version.

Shoddy materials
1 Star Review   By WBinCA on PETCO - Apr 3, 2011   

I purchased this toy to replace a favorite toy that failed after years of use. This toy's string broke in the middle after less than one hour of play. One of three feathers detached after a day or two of play. The cat loves the toy. But I'll be surprised if it lasts even one week. Not recommended.

Just ok
2 Star Review   By Shannon123456789 on PETCO - Mar 30, 2011   

The string of this product broke after the very first day! I think its way to overpriced for such poor construction. After I fixed it by triple knotting the string back together my kitten still doesn't show all that much interest in it. I'd recommend getting the cat dancer or charmer. they're much cheaper and my cat goes crazy for those toys.

Purrrr-fect kitty toy!
5 Star Review   By Meemster on PETCO - Mar 9, 2011   

Our outdoor-oriented 2 yr. old rescue kitty Lucy is quite the huntress when outdoors (which she prefers). This is absolutely Lucy's favorite toy! She especially loves to stay inside IF I carry this toy with me around the house - we play hide and seek with it, keeps her occupied and sane when inside. Otherwise she begs to go outside!

Best cat toy!
5 Star Review   By flowergirl72 on PETCO - Feb 20, 2011   

I have 3 cats that go crazy when playing with this cat toy! If you order this product, do go ahead and get an extra feather piece...NOT because they are cheap and break, but because you are going to need one...your kitty will love this toy so much and want to use it so much, that they will need a new feather piece soon!

A must have for kitty!
5 Star Review   By lisers on PETCO - Feb 17, 2011   

My kitty loves this toy. It was the only toy she would play with when I brought her home from the SPCA. I was getting concerned because she wasn't acting like a normal curious, playful kitten. It has been 9 days now and she is doing great and getting into everything just like a kitty should.

This is the favorite toy by far
5 Star Review   By cmcinc on PETCO - Feb 7, 2011   

Da Bird is definitely the favorite toy. My cat actually sits by the closet door and cries for it. He loves it. When he catches it he prances away so proud as if he caught a real bird.

whirly bird
5 Star Review   By bettio on PETCO - Feb 6, 2011   

This is an impressive step up from other feather teasers. The two large outer feathers are stiff and act like the wings of a maple seed, so even a light swish sets them spinning. Flick the toy towards the ceiling and on the descent they flip into a vertical position, rotoring down helicopter-wise. My cat is fascinated by the movement and the soft fluttering noise.

ALWAYS WORKS ON MY CATS
5 Star Review   By OjOj on PETCO - Feb 1, 2011   

This cat toy has been consistently THE best toy I have used with my cats for over 10 years. No matter what feline I try this toy on, they go APE over it. The sound of the feathers and the bird attachmnt itself makes their little whiskers go forward and they jump all over each other trying to catch the flying bird. This is absolutely, hands-down the one stick toy that I will always order. I have used this toy to help tame my feral cats. Fabulous.

Best cat toy yet!
5 Star Review   By Snowyday on PETCO - Jan 12, 2011   

Our high energy young kitty just loves this toy. He jumps all four way off the floor jumping after the feathers as we fly then above his head. It wears him out. If you hide it behind some crumbled paper and move it so slightly it sounds alive making the cat pounce for it.

5 Star Review   By chimaera on PETCO - Jan 8, 2011   

My cats love this item. The younger one tries to get into the closet where I keep it. She has actually pawed open the closet door and dragged it out. she absolutely loves this item. The other cat, who is older and never plays, plays with it (after I put the younger one in a different room or she will bogart it). I highly recommend this item. I think the reason they like this item so much better than the other feather ones (which my cats like also) is that the feathers are real.

Da Bird is a Cat's Best Friend
5 Star Review   By CzechGirl on PETCO - Sep 12, 2010   

I have to agree with the majority of the other reviews, the Da Bird Feather Teaser is a definate winner! My cat, Elphaba, looks forward to Da Bird playtime every day. We keep all of her toys/supplies in a chest, and when I open the chest she's waiting right there, ready to play. She runs back and forth chasing the teaser, as well as hiding/pouncing onto it like it's wild prey. She loves to hide underneath our coffee table ready for the Da Bird to land, then she quickly pounces on it. And I pick up all her other toys first before engaging with the Da Bird playtime, because she needs lots of room to run for chasing the teaser. I also really like how the pole comes apart for easy storage.

All Cats Will LOVE This!
5 Star Review   By Leigne on PETCO - Aug 30, 2010   

I think all cats will love this toy. The feather at the end is designed to spin around in the air that grabs the attention of a cat. Both my cats work together to try to grab the feather. I've had previous feathers before and they have all lasted me months before I needed to get a replacement. The pole attached to the feather, however, isn't that great. Because it's shipped, the pole is designed to come apart into two. When you attach them back together, vigorous play and tug will cause it to come apart again. I would suggest buying the feathers and using another pole to attach it to.

Fun!
5 Star Review   By OscarTheCat on PETCO - Aug 2, 2010   

My big kitty L-O-V-E-S this toy. He's pretty picky about his toys and usually prefers to destroy things, but he loves chasing this toy. I was skeptical since I thought what is so special about a feather at the end of a string, but I tried it and it is weighted so that it glides around. It totally makes him go nuts - jumping and twirling around trying to catch the feather. It's the favorite toy right now.

5 Star Review   By BaronsMom on PETCO - Jun 18, 2010   

This is hands down the best cat toy ever! I haven't met a cat yet that doesn't LOVE this toy. My cat played with this toy for 5+ years (love the option of replacement feathers, by the way) and never got bored with it. He would even drag it around the house with him to make sure nobody else got it. It's a well-made, inexpensive toy that will keep your cat happy for years to come.

#1 Cat Toy!!!
5 Star Review   By Adoah on PETCO - Apr 18, 2010   

THE BEST cat toy ever! I am a pet sitter and have purchased several of these for the cats of my clients. I use a new feather attachment for each family when I visit, so as not to spread disease from the saliva. This toy gives excellent excercise and entertainment for the kitties. They absolutely go crazy for it. It can fly through the air, slow or fast and can be drug on the floor for them to chase. The cats are waiting for me at the door now!!!

Excellent Toy
5 Star Review   By Danica on PETCO - Mar 9, 2010   

After reading some reviews about how much cats love this toy I had to try it with my own cat. He already had a different type of teaser toy that was his absolute favorite but, once I bought the da bird feather teaser it became his one and only obsession. It's a very neat toy because when you wave it back and forth in different directions it really does appear to mimic the erratic flight movements of an actual bird. I highly recommend it!

how to create a flying cat
5 Star Review   By chicat on PETCO - Mar 4, 2010   

kitty loves this toy - leaping, running, somersaulting in the air - but loves to chew on 'da bird' when caught, so have a spare bird ready if you have a cat that likes to chew and don't leave 'da bird' out when you aren't there to play with your kitty.

I expected to be disappointed - I was not!
5 Star Review   By Wolfess on PETCO - Feb 21, 2010   

I bought this on a whim after reading rave reviews about it in Cat Fancy magazine. I expected to be disappointed, when I got it it looked cheap and I figured I probably wasted my money. But my 2-year-old cat whom I got it for absolutely loved it. The toy resembles a fishing pole with a giant version of those feathery fly baits that people use for fishing. I had heard about this toy supposedly sounding like a bird flying when it moves, and it's actually true. You can hear a light feathery noise when you wave it around that you don't get with the fuzzier teaser toys. My cat really loves this toy, and I'm glad I gave into my whim to try it out!

My Cats love this
5 Star Review   By CoffeeCat on PETCO - Feb 5, 2010   

I bought this on a recommendation in the book Cat vs Cat, and sure enough, my cats find this toy very captivating. It makes a very appealing noise (to the cats) while the feathers move through the air and they have a hard time looking away. The pole is composed of 2 parts, so it can be broken down for easy storage which is also nice. If you have an acrobatic cat, I'm sure this would have them doing aerial leaps to catch it.

I agree with what other reviewers have said, this is not just another wand toy. Both my orange tabby boys go after this harder and play longer than any toy we have ever tried. I have seen the bigger one literally jump 3 feet in the air from a dead stopped crouch trying to catch this. I love watching them run, leap and twist and I feel good because they get a great workout.

They go CRAZY!!
5 Star Review   By BonnyQlyde on PETCO - Dec 15, 2009   

This is the ONLY thing that will get both of our 11-week old kittens to immediately stop what they are doing and RUN to come play! (besides food, anyway :) We were visiting our friend who rescues cats & she had one of these and we watched how crazy all of her cats went (she has about 20 or so, all ages, some that are so big they look like panthers!) and mine even tried to join in (lost in the stampede, of course lol.) So that same night, we picked up one from PetCo and man, this is now their favorite thing to play with, easily. I think they are convinced it's alive, because one of them will growl once she's caught it, as to say Don't you dare move. LOL! They will chew the feathers apart or pull them out, so I can see where replacements come into play, but heck, who cares, it's worth it! Great exercise, they will run in big circles if you make them. haha They have never slept so long, we love this thing!! :)

immediate hit
5 Star Review   By Lucien on PETCO - Nov 29, 2009   

I unwrapped the pole/feather bit and left it on the floor for future play. The next thing I know, my cat is running around it, all excited and begging to play. Its been an astounding hit. He runs/jumps so much that he gets out of breath (he is a healthy 2 year old). He has had other fishing pole/feather teasers that he has enjoyed, so I can't distinguish this one from the others, but at this price it is certainly worth the experiment that could reward with hours of entertainment.

Da Bird and Cat chaser
5 Star Review   By Rbn343 on PETCO - Oct 14, 2009   

I got this because my cat goes nuts for their other product, The Cat Chaser. The long wand is wonderful, and I changed the feathers for the mouse attachment, and he goes beyond wild! Great product.

BEST TOY EVER!!!
5 Star Review   By Keira on PETCO - Aug 31, 2009   

I love this toy!! My kitten, Elvis loves this toy so much! He literally does backflips to try and get it! I could be upstairs, and he would be downstairs, and all I would do is touch the feather to the floor, and he comes sprinting into the room!

Best 9 bucks
5 Star Review   By Rosa on PETCO - Jun 19, 2009   

My Rosa is about to turn 9 years old and likes to play, not as much as 5 years ago. She goes balistic over this toy and literally was jumping off the walls to chase it. I highly recommend buying a few extra feathers off the bat. IF you leave it, they will destroy them. Great great toy

Most amazing cat to ever
5 Star Review   By Izzykitty on PETCO - Mar 21, 2009   

This is by far my cats favorite toy. This is like no other pole toy i have ever seen. The bird actually glides through the air pivoting and swiveling like a real bird in flight. The girls go nuts every time.

She loves it!
5 Star Review   By ARae on PETCO - Dec 8, 2008   

My kitten loves this thing. She pounces and chases after it every chance she gets. She's just about ripped an entire feather off.

best toy ever!
5 Star Review   By momsbusy on PETCO - Nov 26, 2008   

i was given this toy for my cats in a gift exchange. as soon as i took the toy out of the package my youngest cat (an american bobtail) went crazy jumping and literally flipping for it. he was doing jumps up to 3+ feet in the air from a crouching attack position. i believe his little nub of a tail was wagging as fast as a happy puppy's tail. i am not sure who enjoyed the toy more. we laughed so hard we were crying. he now expects to play with da bird at least 3 times a day everyday! as soon as he eats in the morning he runs into the living room and cries for someone to follow him so he can play. often he catches it mid-air. then, he will adjust his kill in his mouth and will try to walk off to a safe place with his trophy. i love being able to buy refills feather for this toy. saves me money. as ruff as he has played with this toy i just knew the feather part wouldn't last more than a day. he really plays with this toy alot and with every ounce of energy he has. i am very satisfied with the quality of this product. i also have two senior girls. da bird has sparked their interest also. they are not very active but will play with da bird if i can keep the youngster from hogging it!

A Must-Buy!
5 Star Review   By eclectique on PETCO - Oct 8, 2008   

Best cat toy ever, period. My two cats have successfully killed da bird and tore all its feathers apart. I purchased replacement feathers for it, and it's totally worth it. I love the length of the rod too--I can watch TV on the couch and play with them at the same time. No need to stand!

4.5 Stars
4 Star Review   By lilyson on PETCO - Sep 9, 2008   

My kittens can't get enough of this toy. I actually have to hide it from them or else they'll destroy the feathers. It's great bonding time and very amusing to watch them try and pursue the feathers, although once they catch it you have to be careful not to let them completely maul the toy. I took a half star off because I wish the feathers could be more durable somehow- I've had the toy for a month and a half and my kittens have already broken off one and are in the process of breaking off another.

Great Toy
5 Star Review   By WrigleyAnn on PETCO - Jul 15, 2008   

My one year old cat can't get enough of this feather teaser. She chases it all over the house. It flys around the room a lot like an actual bird. I've had it for a few weeks and she still isn't bored of it like all the other toys. I highly reccommend it for all cats.

I LOVE this toy!!
5 Star Review   By QuincysMomma on PETCO - Jun 14, 2008   

My mom bought this toy for me a couple of months ago because I was such a good cat and it's become my favorite toy! We play with it and I jump high in the air and grab it! Its a great toy for any cat.

It IS a bird
5 Star Review   By Rika076 on PETCO - Mar 30, 2008   

I was a bit skeptical when I bought this since my cat seemed to prefer long, fuzzy tails to feathers, but I was simply amazed how quickly she fell in love with this thing. It actually seems to somewhat mimic what a real, moving bird would be like and the second I touched this thing, she went CRAZY for it! I don't think I have ever seem her so excited, and she's just as excited every time I pick it up. I love this and will definatley recommend it to everyone I know who has cats.

Great product
5 Star Review   By Yani on PETCO - Mar 10, 2008   

It took about 10 minutes for my cat to figure this little toy, but once she did, she went nuts. She loves it soo much that I have to actually hide it from her

Nothing comes close!
5 Star Review   By Allison on PETCO - Feb 24, 2008   

No wand toy comes close to Da Bird! I couldn't get it out of the package fast enough for my cat. He was all over it! The thing I love the most is it's durability. This is the ONLY teaser that my cat hasn't destroyed within 5 minutes (he is a 15lb. Maine Coon mix). Not one feather fell out as he was biting and pulling on the feathers. He also can't bite through the cord. This toy is definitely made to last! I also love that you can buy replacement feathers without buying a whole new wand. My cat was so excited playing with this! He was flying through the air like a kitten again (he is 2)!!!!

Brings out the wild in them!
5 Star Review   By Maxy24 on PETCO - Feb 19, 2008   

I heard a lot of people recommend this toy to me but couldn't understand the allure, just another feather toy right? Definitely not! My older (Lazy) cat was leaping through the air like he was a kitten again and it's been a long time since I could get him moving with toys. My younger cat thought he had a real bird on his paws, after plucking the toy out of the air (and the rod out of my hand) he pranced through the house and proceeded to guard it from my older cat by hissing and growling, he clearly likes his new toy! I would recommend (and will recommend) this toy to anyone with cats! The movements of the feathers is erratic spurring interest in even the most passive of cats.

Best cat toy
5 Star Review   By AnnieFeline on PETCO - Feb 16, 2008   

My cats absolutely love this toy. They want to play with it more than any other toy they've had. It really sounds & moves like a bird flying when you swing it around. My cats get quite a work-out chasing it.

If I even hear this toy, I come running!
5 Star Review   By BabyPoco on PETCO - Feb 2, 2008   

I love my Da Bird toy so much! When I hear my mommy pick it up and start to twirl it in the air, I come running! I could play with this toy all day long (and into the night)! This toy satisfies my instincts to hunt while I am safe in my home. And, this toy is so wonderful because you can replace the feathers on the end without buying a whole new toy! Because sometimes I play too rough with it and the feathers can break at the end, but that's what happens with little guys like me! And it saves my mommy money because she doesn't have to buy a whole new Da Bird toy everytime I get a little too silly with it! :-) I give the Da Bird toy two paws up!
