Pros: Captivating to my cat.
She has lots of fun.
Provides a lot of jumping exercise.
The feathers simulate a flying bird.
Replacement feathers and attachments can be purchased.
Public alert on package advising responsible, safe play.
I purchased Go Cat's Da Bird 'Da Purr-Peller' version a few weeks ago and it has truly captivated my cat. Da Purr-Peller is on a short wand with a wire that has a 'Purr-Peller' you clip on with a very secure pin. This clip-on is comprised of three real feathers that whirl and flutter like a bird as you move it. Speedy has never once jumped after ANY cat toys until this one and she is chasing and jumping quite high and having loads of fun! Honestly, I have never seen her react so enthusiastically for a toy. Great exercise for an indoor cat.
I do want to add that when the cat makes contact with the feathers, I let up on all pulling. The toy has a wire cord and I do not want her to get tangled in it. This is not a toy to wrestle with. I put ours away when not playing to prevent getting tangled in or Speedy eating the irresistible feathers! I look forward to purchasing the different replacement attachments. Speedy gives it five stars, too!!

Pros: Cats love it!
Great for exercise!
Cons: Feathers come out; health hazard
I was ecstatic to see this toy in the local pet supply store after seeing so many great things about it all over the internet. Charlie loved it; sprinting around the room at top speed and making flying leaps to catch da bird out of the air. The issue is that the feathers come out quite easily, risking a cat accidentally ingesting a feather, which could become a medical emergency if one gets lodged in the GI tract. I stopped using da bird for fear of this, and am now using the mouse attachment instead, which is a lot more durable, and Charlie actually likes even better.

Pros: Fun, cats like it.
Cons: Expensive, not durable
My cats got one of these as a gift from a friend who's cat was rehomed due to anaphylaxis.

It didn't last very long before it was shredded apart by teeth and claws. Not sure if it's because the toy isn't durable or if my cats are just too rough for this toy. Kabby has a bite like a pit bull. My cats shredded the feathers off within a day.

The replacement ends are expensive for what it is.

Comments

I bought this for my cats, and they do love it.  The problem I have is the feathers are almost gone now, from being broken off during play...I have only had it for about a month.  Maybe my cats are just crazy beasts because from what I've read, everyone has said it can take a beating!  I'm down to like two half feathers! And just yesterday the string came loose from the feather toy, so I have to tie it back on, at least it's not broken...maybe I need to find a different toy to put on the end instead of the feathers.  But my cats are in love with this thing...and I definitely enjoy myself watching them fly through the air trying to get it...it's pretty entertaining for the cats and everyone watching!
 
The good news is the refills on the feather toys are $5(amazon) so they're fairly inexpensive as apposed to other replacement cat toys that I've tried. 
 
I have the feathers last longer by making sure they don't chew the toy. I let them catch it and then immediately remove it from them after giving them some pets. Never leave the toy on the ground either. Mine goes away on my shelf after play time to prevent accidental strangulation and stop them from completly destroying the feather toy.
 
be careful of feathers in cat toys. I caught Ally, she had a feather half way down her throat. Luckily I got to her before she swallowed all the way. She was trying her best to get it down before I reached her. I was afraid the center part that was fairly hard could puncture something. She had pulled it lose from some feathers on a toy I had bought her.....
