 Tested by Miss Waikiki 

This was a Christmas gift for all three of my cats.  I purchased it at Walmart.   Miss Kiki was the only one who had any real interest in it.  Kapono and Pele stared at it for a while.  At one point I think Pele wanted to play with it, but it bopped her in the face when she came in for a closer look.  She decided any toy that could get in her face and touch her wasn't worth playing with.   Kiki become very obsessed as she often does with toys and wouldn't leave it alone, even crying for it to be turned back on once I would turn it off.  This girl would play non-stop 24 hours a day if she had the chance. 

Overall, it was a lot of fun for the Keekster, but it didn't hold up very well.  By the next morning, the butterfly was close to losing a wing after Keeks caught and chewed on it.  I realize the butterfly needs to be light weight for the natural fluttering action.  But I think it could have been made with another light weight material that might hold up better to a cat's destructive teeth and claws.  The wire also got bent and the butterfly didn't fly as high as it originally did.   

If you choose to buy this toy for your cat, I would suggest supervised playtime and putting it away when it isn't being played with.  I believe this will prolong the life of it.  Your cats might not be happy at first, but they will thank you in the end. 

Miss Kiki regrets being so rough with the innocent butterfly
