I got this toy for my cats. They took to it right away. It is pretty noisy though. They spent hours playing with it. I did notice after a couple of days they got bored. I put it away and then brought it out a couple of days later, they took to it again. I had to replace the batteries rather quickly. The wand then came off and I had to put some duck tape,which didn't really work. They still play with even though the wand is off. Companies really need to make cat toys more resilient, as cats can be a little rough house sometimes. But even without the rough housing, I see that a lot of cat toys are not designed that well.
