How Many "Da Birds" Have You Been Through?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I was just curious, because my cats are monsters when they catch it!!! I have claw marks all over my arm because I bought a brand new "Da Bird" feather and Enzo wouldn't let go of it!!!!

I have never heard him growl about a toy, but when he was "Da Bird" you better watch out!!!!

Well I know we finished a 12 pack. Lucky, Molly & Benson were pretty gentle with them. Cello & Spunky tore them apart.

I just ordered our second Da Bird. The first one lasted a couple of months, until I sat on it and broke the wand in half. Obviously Meowmy's fault, as opposed to natural wear and tear.

The new one will arrive this week, along with the three-pack of attachment toys.

I'm on my third - my first is actually still intact, I just left it at my parents' house so I wouldn't have to remember to bring it when I went home.

The second met its sad end when Chay jumped up on top of the piano, got onto the shelf about a foot and a half above it, and brought Da Bird down to "play" with while Meowmy was at school.

I bought two Da Birds on eBay - the one-piece wands - and about 20 refills all at once.

I got a great price, and we are so far on our 2nd refill attachment.

None. They aren't sold in Canada that I can find, and I know they aren't sold in Winnipeg because I called all of the pet stores and no one here has heard of it.

We have fishing type toys but they are just string with a feather on it attached to a plastic stick. The one I have the string gets all twisted and wound up becuse the feathers are about 10 times too heavy for the string.

I've asked my brother to let me know the next time he drives to Grand Forks, because I'll ask if he can pick me up one. I think Abby would really like it because she loves a short feather wand that I have but it's not interactive enough for her so she only plays with it for a few minutes and then goes off all bored

Natalie - they have started selling them at petsmart in canada

But why not use Ebay?? I got mine for 20 dollars on Ebay including 5 attachments

At Petsmart they are 12 for the wand and 8/refill so you can get some pretty good deals on ebay

2 since Chloe entered the picture in November.

It's about time for a 3rd.

It's the only toy I have to hide.

They are so over-priced. I am going to start buying them on ebay.

Well, thank you!

Being somewhat of a new kitty momma, I didn't know about da bird, but have just ordered one.

Now I cannot wait for it to arrive!

We're onto our second. Our first was destroyed when a guest left the bathroom door where it was stored open. They had SO much fun playing with it overnight

They like to catch the feathers in their mouth, so I try to limit how long they're allowed to chew on it for!

Onto the second one and already it's in need of a replacement.
Lucy Belle chews the feathers off with vengeance!

Winnipeg doesn't have a Petsmart. And I can't order from the one in Manitoba because I don't have a credit card anymore. And I won't use eBay. I've heard too many bad experiences about eBay. I'd rather buy from a reputable store where I know what I'm going to get and more importantly that I'm going to get it.

oohhh that's too bad about petsmart, can't throw a stone without hitting one in ontarioh. I understand about E-Bay, but I've had pretty good luck, I only buy from buyers with >99% reviews though so maybe that's why.

Do you have a friend in the states that can order one for you?

post #19 of 25
More than 5 since December 10 new refills arrived on Monday from ebay as it's not sold here
post #20 of 25
I honestly couldn't tell you. I probably buy a new one at least once a month. The boys are rough on those things. It is one of the only toys not allowed to be left out in the open.

I just ordered da bird and two refills on Ebay and it should arrive today or tomorrow. Now, after reading your posts I'm thinking I should have gotten more refills! I can't wait to see if my lot loves it as much as all of your little ones.

I also ordered the Undercover Mouse. I tried to buy it in my Petco but they were always out of stock. I'm hoping that's because it's as great as the video I saw. Any reviews on it?

I don't have any "Da Bird" toys but I do have two wand-type toys with replaceable ends... I bought one for the new kittens without realizing we already had one (our older cat is not very playful so it was tucked away somewhere.) So far we've only destroyed one feather end piece... The feathers are still intact, but the part which holds the feathers to the wand snapped while I was whipping it around for the kittens to chase one day...

I purchased my first da Bird after reading all the rave reviews on this site. I ordered it on ebay and it came on Monday. Best toy ever !! It really brings out their primal instincts. My kitties are 3 & 5 years old and I never knew they could chirp!!
post #24 of 25
We're on our second wand at countless bird attachment! However, I rotate between the different attachments so I don't wear them out as quickly as I used to.

I'm glad to see so many people have gone through at least two!!!! I think I'm going to have to start buying them from ebay because the refills are $5 each!
