PLAY THERAPY - The PurrSuit is an excellent toy to use with behaviour issues.
With the PurrSuit Cat toy, fly the feather end around the room or garden in random sweeping movements like a bird in real flight. Your cat's attention will be completely focused on it's "prey". Talk to the cat with a light happy voice. During the flight, land or swoop the feather end close to your cat, they will be waiting/jumping for the right moment to catch their prey! When caught, play dead and take the chance to get away when the cat releases their grip! Repeating this routine will entertain and exhaust your cat. If they are panting, rest for a while and start again until the cat is completely tired.
Some single feathers can be used to satisfy the cats catch instinct and for the kill chew instinct. Then a high protein snack. This completes the natural cycle of hunt-catch-kill-eat.
It's always best to put away the wand after play sessions.
Used regularly, This toy as play therapy can help with shy/ nervous cats and different kinds of aggressive feline behaviours.
Please store at full length (uncolied) away from heat and your cat. As the PurrSuit toy is so adored with cats of all ages, it is recommended to keep the toy securely locked away, your cat will seek it out and destroy it otherwise!
SAFETY !! Cat teaser/Interactive toys are NOT chew toys. Cat Interactive & Teaser Toys satisfy your cat's natural hunt & chase instinct. They are designed only for human supervised interaction with your cat(s) to encourage cats to play and exercise. All the interactive toys should be put away when the play sessions are over. They should never be left with your cat to chew or destroy (as s/he would actual live prey) or left in a place where your cat can reach them without your participation. This is to protect your cat from injury and to make sure that the toys keep their strong appeal.
So what's the difference from The Da Bird Easy store (USA) to the PurrSuit (UK) rods?-
The Da Bird easy store is a two part rod 18" long each pushed together to make a 36" long rod. The PurrSuit is a single length long rod 39" or single short 19" rod . Both are made with fiberglass and both excellent quality. However the PurrSuit rod does have these advantages:-
- Fiberglass Splinters - The wand is completely covered in a red rubber sheath to stop hurtful splinters in your hand.
- Safer Plastic Clip - Other manufacturers use a metal clip with a metal pin at the end of the cord to attach the prey toys. The PurrSuit has a strong plastic clip with no sharp pin for safer play near the cat.
- Made in the UK. Individually crafted by hand with quality materials.
- Grip Handle - More comfortable to hold with a grip handle.
- Cord Wrapping - The cord is attached by an extra eye at the top of the wand so less likely for the cord to wrap around the wand. You can also replace the cord easily.
- Damaged Cord - If your furkid chews through the cord, replacement cord pack are available separately instead of buying a complete new toy.
- Wand Falling Apart - Wands are a one part length construction.

My boy Simba went crazy over this wand and feather, lickety lip crazy! Keeper!
PROS This is one of the most durable wands we have gotten so far ( and we have gone through at least 4-5 within the past 4 months) and you can see where the money has gone into. The spinning action ( check out the slow-motion video ) is one of the most crucial in terms of imitating a prey like action but most wands we have used tend to break and knot up pretty quickly. The Purrsuit one does a brilliant job without the crazy knotting and flimsy chains. The pricing may seem a little high as compared to the rest of the teasers. However, you have already gone through as many as us, this is a keeper for its durability. One other thing we love are the wand attachments. This works well to provide variety for the kitties without the hassle of changing different wands each time. CONS If we are being nitpicky, it is the length of the string. Mimi and Momo do a lot of crazy jumps and stalks a lot. We think a longer string would give a lot more wiggle room to play with the toy. OVERALL IMPRESSIONS A definite keeper, especially if your kitties love feathers and teaser wands. Highly recommended!
