Bird Catcher PRO EX – Interactive Cat Toy Review

Maggee vs The Bird Catcher PRO EX – Review + Giveaway –

When we adopted Maggee we purchased a bunch of toys and items we thought she might like. We purchased tiny stuffed mice that got lost far to quickly, we purchased balls with bells that were inevitably stepped on and we bought a bird feathers on a string. Since she was a bit older upon adoption, but still very young and recently had given birth we were told to keep her calm the first 5 days at home – Yea! You try to keep a 9 month old kitten “calm”.

As for the toys, she showed little interest until we tried the bird toy. We quickly discovered that one of her favorite ways to play was laying down and letting the bird toy come to her. She learned VERY quickly that the toy always returned within in a radius that she could reach with her paws. At the time we did not know if the fascination with this toy was more that she was healing or that she was lazy. It turned out that she just a lazy player and knows the toys will return.

One of her favorite toys is the bird toys that seem to be flying in the air. The biggest problem is that generally these have long handles and long strings, which makes storage difficult when you live in a small house. When I saw a review of The Bird Catcher PRO Ex online, I was curious if it would be the toy she loved without the storage issues.
