I'd bought Robin a new feather wand,and we were playing,when suddenly,he began making ack-ack sounds. I looked,he had a feather sticking out of his mouthand was trying to spit it out.. I went to help,but he panicked and started running around. Finally I was able to wrestle him down,and take the feather out of his mouth. If your kittoh can tear apart the feathers,made of a soft material,feather wands might present a potential hazard.
