SmartyKat's Complete Needs System helps you understand your cat’s emotional, instinctual and physical needs and provides products to meet those needs. The Feather Whirl satisfies your cat's need for exercise.
Cats in the wild have predators and prey to motivate them to run and jump. Exercise is important to keep cats mentally alert, physically fit and at a healthy weight. Toys that feature motion and feathers activate a cat's natural instinct to chase and pounce, encouraging healthy activity while simultaneously keeping them entertained. The Feather Whirl taps into these instincts with its erratic spinning motion.

This goes on until the batteries die. Cattertainment accomplished.
Oh, and it's quiet and hasn't broken yet in two hours, so there's that.
The only reason it's four stars is that it doesn't move around by itself. He still prefers to attack my ankles, so there's clearly room for additional diversion.
It's been a few months. The big'ole boy (the Bombay, who is now two of himself) was pretty attached to this for awhile, but eventually got bored. I leave it off now and occasionally find him gnawing on the feathers. His adopted sister (an adorable floofball lapcat) doesn't care for it. They both, however, adore tunnels, so our floor now resembles a miniature subway system. I recommend those if you don't have a couple already.
All told, if you are looking for a reasonably priced automatic toy that cats enjoy, an don't mind having to get up every few minutes to move it, and giving your cat the occasional "win" during her play session, this is a great option.
-my cat likes it
-moves around on its own
-isn't especially loud
-uses normal batteries (AA)
-the round shape and internal motor help it to stand up to being pounced on and batted.
-the movement is random, so it can sometimes wander where you don't want it to or get stuck
-like most automated toys, it is a bit frustrating, so after a bit you'll want to give your kitty a "win."
-between the frustration factor, and the fact that cats sometimes eat feathers, this is definitely a supervised use toy
-the feathers on the end fo the wand will wear out and look like they'd be a pain to replace.
It works best on a solid floor which allows the ball to move around while the feathered wand is spinning. As the wand spins the feathers back and forth, a small weight inside the ball tends to keep the wand upright and works with this spinning motion causing the ball to slowly roll around the floor. SmartyKat's electronic control spins the wand in random directions, stops, and starts and seems to have a mind of its own - very unpredictable which I like. It does work on carpet but rolling motion is limited depending on the carpet thickness. Twirling motion isn't affected by the carpet. I also like that it's motor is very quiet, almost dead silent, so it won't scare your kitty with any noise.
I installed lithium AA cells for longer life. SmartyKat draws about 375 milli-Amps from fresh batteries which means it could run continuously for two hours. I would expect to get a good 4 to 6 hours of intermittent run time from a set of alkaline or lithium batteries. That's a lot of play time for a 10 year old cat since Gabriel's favorite past time seems to be napping :-)
I've tried so many different toys with Gabriel to keep her active and stimulated and SmartyKat has proven to be the best of the rest. At it's very reasonable purchase price, you can't go wrong. I think that any cat or kitten would enjoy this motion toy and highly recommend it. I know I'll be looking to this company - SmartyKat - the next time I'm shopping toys for Gabriel.
