Well Kitikatterfly is a huge hit...so much so that when DH was playing with her and then got side-tracked and stopped, she went over and yowled in his face, lol   Play some more, dad!  Yes, forgive me, Your Highness Sophers.   Kiss  Cheesy

We had a problem last night with one of these toys.  Not saying its the toy but just watch out.  Sophs was getting revved up and charged at it while it was on the ground and she got it wrapped around her.  DH was holding the wand but she took off and it snapped the wand in half.  She took off running with the other half of the wand flying behind her and she was going so fast we couldnt tell where the string was hooked on her.  She ran down the stairs, back up, behind the couch, down the hall, into the bedroom, then under the bed.  The whole time I was petrified worrying that she was going to hang herself or break a leg.  DH reached under the bed to try and cut it away and thankfully it just fell loose on its own so we were able to get it.  But poor Sophs was so freaked out she ran into the living room and went under the couch and wouldnt come out.  DH finally had to lift the couch so I could reach in and pull her out.  She was upset the rest of the night and slept really late this morning.  Too much excitement.  So anyway, just watch out and be careful to not let these get wrapped around your kitty.

When I play with Beau, sometimes it wraps around his tail.  The tail acts as a axis or a tether and the string will wrap around the tail.  Beau gets very confused when this happens and wonders where the litter critter he was chasing went, he's never panicked about it, so not sure if that's what happened to Soph or not.

Also, every once in a while, when the angle is right, Beau manages to pop the string off the wand and he takes off running with it.

Sandy, I'd contact the company about the broken wand.  The only time I've managed to break the wand is when I accidentally sat on it.  Sophs doesn't weight much more than Beau does.  It shouldn't have broken.

merrihart, I hadnt thought about telling them that the wand broke, I think I will, its a good idea. 

Thanks to that episode my neck is now out of whack, from being on the floor trying to convince her to come out from under the couch.  She has fully recovered now.  I have scratch marks to prove it.  Wink

Ever since Alek told me about the Neko flies, I've always wanted to get one, and well - finally did. Got the centipede. Oh my god, what fun! The cats went absolutely crazy, especially Monkey. He jumps so high and has zero regard as to where he falls. I am a little afraid he's going to hurt himself if he falls against a chair or table so we are trying to take it easy. But this is such a de-stress therapy for all of us, it's really impossible not to laugh at their antics when the toy is in motion! Will definitely get other attachments!

Yes, even my elderly cats like the Neko flies toys! So I imagine your young ones are having a ball.

My guys all like Neko Flies, too, except Wednesday, who is terrified of it!
