My cat is very fond of the SmartyKat FeatherBalls Cat Toy. Although she has many toys to choose from, this is clearly one of her favorites. She does, however, tend to be really tough on the toy. Firstly, she chews all of the feathers off. Next, she bats it and "rabbit kicks" it whenever she sees it. Lastly, when she is ready to go upstairs, she will often times carry it with her, all the while making a very interesting set of sounds. Once at the top of the stairs, she often hurls it back down to the bottom and then runs down the stairs, only to repeat the process. However, despite all of the abuse she dishes out, the toy is remarkably resilient. She has several that have lasted over two years; albeit demonstrating a high degree of wear. I think this toy piques her predator instincts and so my little tiger can't resist it! I highly recommend it to get those lazy cats off the couch and into play.
