    Any idea what it's called? I'm looking for something new, now that the boys have destroyed their Fling-ama-String...

    Have you tried "Da Bird". Feather and wand, and simulates a birds flight. Our customers love it.
    Da Bird, Da Bird UK

    Cheers Fraz

    Da Bird was one of the first toys I bought for them. After 5 minutes, Napoleon got the wire caught around his neck and he bolted - no harm done, luckily, but I'm afraid it went in the bin after that...

    Da bird words well for my girls. Once I bought a toy similar to the cat dancer except with a butterfly at the end. Ava grabbed the toy held the butterfly in her mouth and started growling. She ripped apart that toy within 10 minutes. I had to take it away so she didn't swallow anything.

    Have to agree cheese chaser is excellent but the ball runner makes a pleasant change,it keeps my kitten amused even when in this weather he cant be bothered chasing anything,he can lie on the cool kitchen floor and wait for it to come close enough to bat it across the room.

    I'll have a look out for that one buffie!

    The best toy we have ever bought so far is this one:
    YouTube - Watch now! Red kitten Casper enjoys his new play circuit!

    Found on Zooplus here: Catit Design Senses Play Circuit - Innovative cat toys at zooplus

    Rilly loves it! But now the kittens have figured it out (that was hilarious to watch in itself!) they go bonkers for it :D Imagine 4 kittens sat taking it in turns to push the ball. Poor old Cain still hasn't quite figured it out though, and he head butts it :lol:
