I don't know if my cats are just savages or what, but it seems that whenever I get them one of these toys that the feathers are gone within the first hour of play. They do enjoy chasing the ball around the house for hours.
We got this in the May 2016 MeowBox and Dezra Just Grabbed it out of the box and started playing wit it. She loves playing with it everyday. tosses it back and forth while I am filming my youtube videos. she has decided she wants to be in them all playing with her toy. You can see the toy going back and forth. she is very entertained.
