Google it! I'm sure you can get it at Petsmart! I'm thinking about getting it too.

I would definitely recommend "da bird". The "fishing pole" toys are a great substitute, but "da bird" is much better - my kitties like it cause it twirls really nice, the feathers look realistic, and it's got really good hang/glide time, which really gets them interested. The only places I could find it was online, and I bought directly from go-cats.

I've bought every single possible toy out there, and none go over too well. I'm the only one that gets excited. Won't stop me from buying tons more toys, though. They've gotten bored with the panic mouse, and the laser light, and anything not moving. Ginza still loves his foam balls, though.

You mentioned that he's worn out his existing ones, maybe just buying the same ones again to replace them? It's great when you find something they like and aren't bored with in 2 secs.

I'll probably get it since I can't find it in my neighborhood petsmart.

My cats favorite thing to play with is peacock feathers. I find them in the floral depatment of the supermarket. They really go nuts over those!!!

They also like the laser light thingy.

eep

you need a few feathers found about the yard, a rubber band and a piece of string. i have doves all over the place here and their always dropping wing feathers. rubber band em together to the string and you have a yummy bird smellin toy, cheap. well i suppose it does i dont smell em but the cats love em. it brings out the instinct in them.

I would recommend da bird if you have a lot of space to use. I "thought" my living room was big, until I started playing with this toy. Jack and Mia like to FLY through the air after this toy, and Jack ran into the coffee table twice in one night, then I decided to put it away. If you have LEAPING cats, make sure you have a lot of room.

I also recommend the cat dancer. It's so cheap and simple, but for some reason my cats just go crazy for it.

My cats also play with those little furry mice that you can open up (velcro) and put little catnip bags in. They love those.
