The Da Bird can be used with many attachment variaties, incliuding the Sparkly, Super Refill, Kitty Puff, Cat Catcher mouse, attachments made by Frenzy Cat Toys and Hyendry. With so many different attachments available your cats will be forever playing with you.
With the Original Value pack you'll receive the ORIGINAL FULL LENGTH pole (36 inches) Da Bird (Guinea Feather refill attached) and 2 extra Guinea Feather refill attachments. The single pole is better if size is not an issue, since the 2 part pole can sometimes come apart while you are using it.
This is an interactive toy, meaning you are required to work the pole to play with your cat. NEVER leave the pole out or unsupervised since your cat can become tangled in the line if alone with it.
Accent feather colors will vary.
Safety - As with all fishing rod toys, please ensure supervised play at all times and put away when not in use.

However, last night as I was using Da Bird with our cats, I felt some sharp fibrous needles on my hand where I was holding the wand. Upon closer inspection it was apparent that the wand, made of fiberglass, was splintering and had left hundreds of shards of fiberglass in the palm of my hand and fingertips. The shards are painful and tiny. Removal was only possible with tweezers and a flashlight, even then only the largest shards could be extracted from my hand.
Needless to say, we were quite alarmed by the hazard Da Bird was causing, not only to humans, but more seriously, to our cats. One of our cats is especially fond of playing with and chewing on the wand end of other `fishing pole' type cat toys we have had. Had he gotten a paw or his mouth on the splintering fiberglass wand, he would have been in serious danger.
Upon doing a simple Google search of "Da Bird fiberglass splinter" we came across several product review sites and online cat forums where people had suffered from the fiberglass splinters, however these warnings are not obvious when buying the item for the first time. Given that Da Bird's manufacturer, Go Cat, prides itself on "Quality interactive cat toys handcrafted in the USA", we highly recommend that they issue a warning to resellers of the toy, post a warning on their website and immediately change to a more safe and durable material to prevent serious injuries to cats and humans. We have also contacted the ASPCA and Go-Cat (the maker) in hopes that they will take steps to improve the safety of this product.
I recommend putting it away in the closet because the cats will destroy the bird attachment fairly quickly. They love tearing it to pieces on its own. I also recommend getting the value pack since I've already had to attach a replacement feather and it's only been about 2 months since my purchase. (This might be because I didn't put it in the closet.)
I have no regrets and I will be always purchasing this toy for my cats and any future cats that come into my life.
With all the fun you and your cats can have with Da Bird, you may want to take a few precautionary measures to avoid problems:
First, I've found that a good proportion of the rods I've bought had problems with the fiberglass splintering. Having those fiberglass splinters bury into your skin can be very painful. The fix: I've wrapped those rods along the entire length with duct tape. It doesn't happen with all of them and most are ok, but some are notorious splinterers.
Second, my cats love Da Bird and its attachments so much that they try to chew off pieces and eat them. One of them once ate an entire attachment when I was called away to the phone for a few minutes. He also has multiple times bitten right through the string and tried to eat it. Of course that's not good for them and it was pure luck he didn't end up blocking his digestive passage. So careful supervision may be needed and it's best to securely lock Da Bird away when you're not watching.Read more ›
