Love that this is retractable
I have a pet-sitting business and my cats all love the flying feathers on long sticks to play with, but they are long and awkward to carry around on visits. The retractable handle on this toy is ingenious, it now lives full time right into my small purse. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the feather part is made of plastic and not real feathers. It may say that in the descriptions, but I easily switched it out for a real feather attachment. Real feathers glide better and make less noise that can scare cats that don't know me well yet. The plastic feathers will be more durable in the end, so if you have a cat that plays really rough or chews then this will be great. But since I deal with cats I don't know well, I would love it if this had the option of real feathers. I plan to buy more in the future to keep on hand and just switch out the feathers.
