I adopted my cat about five weeks ago, and she didn't seem really into toys. The only one she played with a lot was one of the dangling Kong toys I got her, and she ended up chewing through the string on that. So, I bought this, knowing that she really likes to pounce at things that move. I knew she'd like it, but the difference in her playtime is amazing! She goes absolutely nuts over this, and as I just got surgery, it's a very easy way for me to have interactive playtime with her without exerting much effort! I've noticed that she is more curious and playful with other items around the house, too, since I bought her this last week. Highly recommended!
