Rate this product

Feather Whirl is a new toy that encourages cats to use its natural instincts to play. What's more is this product has an original feature that makes it different from many other toys: it almost constantly changes the pattern of movement. This means felines will not be able to predict which direction the feather is about to move in, giving it an extra level of enjoyment. The Feather Whirl can also encourage lazy cats to get moving and play with something, rather than sleeping all day. Made with Catnip which cats adore, the toy could prove to be rather irresistible.

The Claim

The infomercial claims that Feather Whirl is the brand new way for cats to play, so they are a lot less bored than usual. Made so that it does not break, this product is also manufactured using non-toxic plastic and is built to last. It also goes on to say that feline friends will never get bored as the feather won't repeat its pattern. This feature means kitties are more likely to pounce on and play with this unique toy. The infomercial also goes on to say that the Feather Whirl will provide a lot of entertainment for the whole family.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Feather Whirl is $19.95 plus $9.95 shipping, for a total price of $29.9. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Feather Whirl being discontinued. Feather Whirl may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

  • Feathers May Fall Out

  • Needs Batteries to Work
  • If the batteries that are includes die, make sure to have another pair handy. Thus, if your cat gets used to playing with toy so much that it wears out the battery, you may have to entertain your cat manually without battery replacements handy. To ensure this toy continues to provide your cat with entertainment, keep a spare set of AA batteries around.

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.

  • Micro Mouse
