We got one of these for Sophers and oh my goodness, she goes nuts for it.  

https://www.nekoflies.com/

The fly we are using is the Kragonfly which looks just like a real dragonfly with little wings and she loves it!

We've only used it a couple of times so we dont know how well it holds up or anything but Sophs gives it a definate paws up rating.  We ordered ours thru litterboy.com and the shipping was really fast.

We got one of these several months back.  I have to put it away and bring out only from time to time, or the cats will exhaust themselves!  My cats go nuts for the Neko Flies, too.  I bought mine in a local "pet boutique."  We have the ones without feathers (my cats EAT feathers!)

I can see why you had to put it away, she just went crazy to the point she was breathing pretty hard and didnt want to stop so we put it up for a while last night to get her to calm down.  I think they ought to make a butterfly fly!  Cheesy  In a effort to get to it while her and DH were playing she jumped right smack into the middle of her tunnel and collapsed the tunnel so its not looking so great now, lol

We have the small Kittenator (mouselike one) and the Katarantula.  Yes, they will exhaust themselves unless you limit the use.

August, which flies are you ordering?  Sophs had playtime again last night and the "kragonfly" is most definately her favorite!  Just make sure you put it up when its not playtime, lol   Cheesy

I've been looking at them and wondering which one/s to try.

Do you know if those will easily hook onto a Da Bird wand?  Is there anything special about the Neko wand?

I hooked them onto another wand that I had without buying the Neko wand, and they seem to work just fine.

Does the Da Bird wand have a swivel attachment on the end?  That is how they hook onto the Neko Fly wand.....

I found it being sold in Japan so I thought what the heck!   Cheesy

I got the dragonfly, the mouse, and the tarantula.   Cool

We'll see how it goes but who am I kidding?  Even a piece of raw spinach on the floor excites the Tinies LMAO.

Well, sheesh, what's not to like about this!   Grin

It's a fluttery toy thing on a fluttery wand string!  Show me a kitty who doesn't go berserk for that!

Human plus points are that the wand is easy and comfortable to hold.  Also, the parts seem to be a lot more rounded and "safe feeling" than other similar toys.  Actually, I'd like to inspect it more and give a better report, but I can't since there is no way that I can get my face close enough to the thing unless I lock myself into a closet.  LOL

There was a lot of growling and monopolizing and running away with the toy (we are using the dragonfly right now since that's what was attached when it arrived).  Whoever wasn't chomping down on the toy (which in our case meant nine others) would just sit and watch in awe.


One big difference for this toy is that the actual toy has the string part attached to it.  So the pieces are a wand / a toy with a string (as opposed to the wand with the string, plus a toy that attaches on).  This is good for if the string breaks or gets chewed apart -- you can just buy a new toy (and it has a new string on it).

Although because the toy's string hooks onto the wand, sometimes the kitties would hear the jangling of the hook (at the base of the wand) and get temporarily confused LOL.  But I prefer that waaay more than having the hook at the toy end and going into kitty's mouth!


But this is a great, fun toy!  10 paws up!  Or would that be 20 paws up?

LOL August, if yours really, really like it, Im guessing they would want their back paws included in that tally, making it 40 paws up! Wow, thats practically a whole army!  Cheesy

Sophers likes the dragonfly best tooand she still is going nuts for it.  We got the spider which she doesnt care for but she doesnt like real spiders either...wants meowm to get them for her, lol  There was one called the kittycada if I remember correctly that we havent tried, it was out of stock when we ordered.  We also tried the little furry one but that wasnt a favorite either.  Its funny because Sophers also gets side-tracked by the sound of the jangling clasp thing too, she likes to bite it.

LOL about the spiders!

We've still only tried the dragonfly and it's already pretty mangled - course, I guess that's expected when you have at least 6 monsters after it.  I'm guessing the mouse is going to be a hit for Mooch (he also likes the dragonfly).

It's great -- Tinies and Larges, they all really like it.

Fhizzy especially loves it and growls and trots away with it.  She'll be very serious growling with it in her mouth and then when she hears the clasp jangling a few feet away, she'll look up like WTF?  It's pretty funny.  I'm looking forward to trying out the mouse and the spider.  I didn't notice the kittycada you mentioned -- that must supposed to be like a cicada beetle.  I'll bet that would be fun!

August, that so cute, I bet its fun to see their reactions to it.  Sophers hawls hers away too.  She grabs it and then walks off, with it dragging behind her...and she holds her head real high when she's doing that, sort of like she is real proud.  Cheesy
