We got Da Bird at last and it's all and more!
Yesterday afternoon the woman came to deliver Da Bird at last. I was elated. It cost me a lot because it's imported from the USA and only 2 stores in this country sell it ($13), but it was worth every penny! I closed myself in the bedroom to assemble it and then only waved the wand outside the bedroom door and Prince was already entranced!
After 1 full hour of continuous play, Prince started panting, so I only dragged the feathers, to avoid him jumping and I soon put the toy away.
This was the first time Prince actually cried because I stopped playing.
Prince is indoor/outdoor, but if I had an indoor-only cat, I'd be willing to invest 10 times more than I paid on Da Bird, because the amount of exercise and mental stimulation is amazing. It also gave Prince more confidence in his own movements and although it is interactive play, it stimulated his desire to explore playing on his own with other toys a lot more, which was a problem we had that I had posted a thread on ("Cat won't entertain himself).
I may sound like an ad for this toy, but we are really ecstatic with it. I can't thank you all enough for recommending it!
The Royal von Meouw Dynasty: His Royal Highness the late Prince von Meouw,
