i consider myself relatively creative professionally (am in marketing) so kept making a variety of what i thought would be fun toys for my cat. they ranged from simple to ornate - things you throw, things that move on their own, things that crawl, things that bounce, monochrome/colorful/etc. one day a colleague told me about this product, and from its description (a piece of wire with some wrapped paper) i was incredulous. she swore by it, so i bought it (cant beat the price)....

...my cat was obsessed. no other toy could distract her and amuse her the way this one did. i'd drag it and whip it around and she'd chase it everywhere. i could wake her from her sleep just by the sound of it rubbing against the rug, and she'd be off and chasing.

she NEVER tired of this toy. and our new kitten (and her new friend) took to it right away as well.

this 'toy' pissed me off to no end because it was so basic and simple, and yet worked where my ornate and 'thought out' toys (e.g. mini remote controlled cars with feathers attached) didnt.

I was super-skeptical when I took this thing out of the bag.
It is literally a length of wire with some twisted brown paper bits on the ends (kindof like pieces of the thin round handles on a brown paper shopping bag). There's one piece on the end that you hold, and maybe 4 or so on the target-end for the kitty. The stiffness of the wire is just perfect such that when you hold it lightly, and the cat bats at the end, it bounces and flies all over the place, with near-zero effort on your part. You can, of course, move it some more on your own and entertain the cat with more movement, but it works very well to just hold the wire lightly. I was a little worried that it might poke an eye out or something, but the ends of the wire are bent into loops so that shouldn't happen. It is a stiff, significant-gauge wire though. Really, it's crazy-simple, but really effective. My kitten gets bored with the fancy feather wand I have for him, but he keeps going with the Cat Dancer until I take it away from him because I'm too tired to hold it out and watch to be sure he doesn't chomp down on too much wire. I wouldn't pay a lot for it, solely because I'd feel like a dolt for shelling money out for wire and paper/cardboard twisty bits, but it's a great toy.

The cats at our humane society have it nice and are constantly surrounded by toys of all descriptions, but open the toy cupboard and they all watch, waiting to see if you are pulling out the Cat Dancer. As soon as they notice you have it (i.e., instantly), you are mobbed by cats! Even the shy ones sneak out to bat at it. The Cat Dancer is the only toy I have never seen the cats tire of. We put it away when not in use because the wire could potential be dangerous, but overall this is the perfect toy. It holds up surprisingly well, too.

Just a warning to all who have this toy. Be careful and don't leave this toy around unattended. Plus, make sure to throw it away once the cardboard pieces get old and are falling to pieces. My friends cat recently almost choked to death on the hook that holds the cardboard pieces together. Luckily she eventually threw it up, but it could have turned out very ugly.

Both of my cats really love this and my wallet adores it because it's cheap as well as being on the fairly durable side as well. My cats are active (they love to play, run after and catch things) and like to play two or three times a day. As several other reviewers have noted, you should keep a light grip/pinch on one end and that's enough to make the other end swing and weave around in the air. Then, just roll your end between your fingertips a bit and it'll bounce a bit and swing around and (hopefully) entice your kitties play with the other end. I've also held it in the middle and let both cats go at their seperate end but it's stiffer that way and doesn't move as much.

Boo is about four and half years old and the other, Poxie, is three. Poxie will play with anything that moves (or is shiney and will chew carboard for the heck of it), so she loves it. Boo is a bit pickier likes to "stalk" things and be convinced that he really does want to play. I usually to drag this around and wiggle it on the floor a bit to catch his interest but he always comes around and will start batting at it in the air as well. Both will go wild if it wiggles (and makes noise), just barely visiable, from the edge of a cardboard box or paper bag though =)

It holds up very well, they will pounce and chew on the cardboard and wire. The ends of the cardboard do fray a bit and get soggy but they're tightly coiled with the wire and it lasts a good amount of time. The price is great also, so no qualms about getting a new one very couple of months!

What is it about the Cat Dancer that cats love so much? The erratic motion of the bent wire? The texture of the little cardboard rolls at the end? The fact that it is probably the least expensive toy in the house, thus giving my kittens one more excuse to ignore all the "nice" toys I buy for them?

Whatever it is, the Cat Dancer has worked for my two 5 month old kittens. Every time I bring it out they will play for a long as I am willing to hold the toy out for them. I use the Cat Dancer to give them a run-around before bedtime and decrease the chance of bored midnight meowing sessions. It's a great chance for them to break out their hunting skills, and unlike a laser pointer there is something for them to tangibly "kill" with this toy.

Because this toy is mainly constructed out of a long, thin length of wire, I only allow them to play with the Cat Dancer under my supervision. While I do not see any inherent safety hazard in this toy, I will err on the side of caution when it comes to two curious kittens. I do not feel that the wire ends will cause injury to my kittens during play, but if you are paranoid you could wrap the ends with a small piece of tape to "dull" them.

After 2 weeks of play, the cardboard roll on the "holding" end of the Cat Dancer has fallen out, but the toy is still easy to hold.

Give it a try! You may be surprised how high your cat will leap to try and get a hold of those elusive cardboard bits.
