How It Works
The Feather Whirl spins in spontaneous directions, whirling around the feathers at its tip. Additionally, the rounded base moves and shifts as the cat swats at the whirling feathers. When the cat lets go of the feathers, the base returns to its right-side up position and continues whirling the feathers around.
