BEST cat toy
My 5 cats went nuts over this toy!!!!! They can't get enough of it
Cats really like this toy. It is holding up rather well. After 1 month of play by 4 cats, one of tip of feathers has broken off, but honesty i would have thought it would have been detroyed by now.
Not just your usual cat dancer!

After being owned by cats for over thirty years, "The Royals" and I agree that this is the best cat toy ever! This isn't like some dead thing at the end of a string. There is something about the aerodynamics of the feathers that makes it flutter and swoop like it is alive. Even the laziest of my cats becomes fixated on capturing this. The only problem is that if you fly it too high, it will cause even elderly arthritic cats to make incredible leaps which can leave them as sore as an out of shape weekend athlete after a triathlon. I have to keep it low for the older guys, because it is too easy for both of us to get a little wild with exuberance! Wish it we easier to get refills, though.
My favorite cat toy

I love this cat toy. I've been looking for one like this for a long time as my old one broke. It's fun to play with the cats and get them running and jumping--great exercise. And the feathers handle well as compared to some too heavy items on "fishing rod" toys.
Two cats love this. Got replacement birds too
String Not Strong enough....

Although my cats love this toy and gives them plenty of excerise, however, the string is not strong enough for attack play and chewing. My one year old chewed right through the string (I tied the two ends together) and my ten year old pull the string apart in another spot. I would buy another one if they fix the string problem.
My cats went total crazy over this toy. The string gets entangled too often . Dont know if it depends on how we use. Other than that it is good.

Even my senior cats can't resist this "bird"! It lasts for weeks as long as one of them doesn't capture it. It is great fun for me as well as the cats.
My cats go nuts for this toy
from Lansing, MI10/23/2012
I have to hide this toy when I'm not playing with my cats because they love it so much, they would take it out of its package and carry da bird around in their mouths as a trophy - even if they didn't hunt for it.
I bought one for a friend who has a couple of cats and they love it too!
Fantastic Product, wow
from Auckland, New Zealand08/17/2012
Really didn't think this could be half as good as it sounded, we saw it on My Cat from H*ll and i kept telling my wife it cant be that good, boy i was wrong. As soon as we got it out she was like a different cat, i haven't seen her jump for anything ever, and straight out of the packet she was jumping for it. The one thing we didn't realize was the noise which none of the other toys make, its great.
da bird is a great product i would recommend it to anyone who loves to play with their cat.

The two cats loved it! They think it is a real bird flying in the house and loved playing with it. Great exercise for the two cats.
Like a real bird
from Minneapolis, MN06/17/2014
My cat loves this. Originally saw it on the Animal Planet show, "My Cat from He**." (Note: the asterisks are necessary since Entirely Pets flagged it as "inappropriate language.") As you move it around, particularly through the air, it resembles a bird in flight. The stick is long enough so you can get some real birdie action going. Unlike some other reviews, I haven't had any trouble with the swivel. But if the cat really gets hold of it, the ends of the feathers break off. Even so, it is still the favorite toy.
My cats LOVE this toy. It is a great way to play and get them to burn some energy. Also great way to bond with new cats esp if they are rescues and a little skittish.
Da Bird is Da best!!
by Cat mom07/23/2013
We've had many, many Da Bird toys & this is by far our cats' favorite. They will chase it until they are exhausted. It flutters like a real bird & drives them crazy. Love it!!
I ordered Da Bird from Entirely Pets after I was unable to find it locally. I had several from years earlier, but they were worn out.
Great while it lasts
from Toledo, OH12/13/2014
My cat LOVED this toy, but it didn't last very long. Within a short amount of time, she had the feathers pulled out of the red rubber cap that they were glued into. But it did flutter just like a bird when you waved it thru the air which my cat really loved. My cat is on the small side of the spectrum, and just 1 year old.
Excellent exercise toy
Both my cats LOVE this toy! They will chase it in circles and leap into the air chasing it. It's an excellent toy to exercise an indoor cat.
Not strong enough for Bengals!
My cats had plenty of interest in this toy, but destroyed it in the blink of an eye. Also, when they grab onto the bird and pull, the handle comes apart.
DA BIRD IS DA BOMB!
my 2 kitties absolutely LOVE playing w/ this toy! swing your arms around the room while holding the end of the toy to simulate a flying bird--your kitty(s) will go nuts trying to capture the "bird"! yes you'll look like a dork...but isn't it worth it to make them happy? bonus: it gives them a workout. this is the BEST toy!
The "stick" (Which is really metal) was bent and broken when it arrived, so the feather only was used as a refill for another DaBird.
Loved this Toy
by Pet Lover
Both my cats can't get enough of playing with this toy. The feathers are perfect for getting their attention and when outside I plant it in a flower pot and it twirls around with the breeze and the cats play on their own. Love this toy...will purchase another when this one gets bad.
Going to order back ups

My cats, a 13-yr. old, and a 1 1/2 yr. old, love this toy -- no matter what age, they love it. And, it gets all the energy out of them, too, so good toy. The string sometimes wears out before the toy, but I've had to replace the feather toy because they get it in their teeth and won't let go. Great toy +++++
This is the all time favorite cat exerciser. Even our laid-back tabby cat gets moving with this one.
One of our cats is the most active and managed to dislodge the feathers. Repair is easy with a

I have foster kittens and my own cats. They all love Da Bird, even my older cat. Although, be careful where you store it. I put mine in the pantry and they got the door open one night, and I had to buy another one. Every night, my Xena cries to play with Da Bird. She knows where I store it and watches when I get close to the drawer. All the kitties love it!! They all come out to play, and they have a blast! I have had to buy several refill Da Birds also.
