The smaller ones are my Trent's absolute favorite toy in the world!

Here's the stash we found of them

Anyway, I haven't had any problems with these, but they aren't exactly the same as the ones you posted. I have gotten those bigger ones with the long strands, but my two weren't really interested (I don't think they roll as well as the smaller ones). I don't buy the ones marketed for cats, I buy the bags in the craft department that are, I think, 12 balls for $2. I get the ones that are at least 1" diameter, not the multi-pack with various sizes.

My two would have a field day with all of those Heidi!!

I haven't heard of anything bad either, and my cats love them! But, I guess I would suggest using ones with shorter "hair". so they can't chew it and swallow it. I would think it would kind of be like tinsel...

Mine LOVE those pom poms! EMB_78 sent me some for christmas and my cats think they are the greatest invention since catnip mice.

I've seen really cheap versions of the big ones that just fall apart, but just like Valanhb I buy the ones from the craft department. By the way if I could reach all the balls under my fridge my cats collection would be almost the same size, but we don't spoil our kitties do we? NEVER

JUst be careful. I bought a pack of assorted cat toys and one of those came in it and I gently pulled some strands to test and they came out SUPER easy. The craft ones are probably more sturdy.

I have 5 of them around here somewhere I'll find them when I move, I guess. One of my girls just luvs to carry it around in her mouth while trying to meow at the same time. Quite funny - keeps her occupied

My girls LOVE these. I used to by the smaller ones in the petstore and I have noticed they don't carry them anymore. I wondered if there was an issue with them too? I haven't had any problem except they tend to shrink up over time. When they get really little I toss them out just in case.

If it is made from the same tinsil stuff you put on Christmas trees (the "icycles") then NO way would I get them for a toy for the cat. If they eat the tinsil, it could wrap around their tongue/intestines like the stuff on the trees.

Just cause it looks like a safe cat toy, doesn't mean it is! There are cat toys with cute little button/bows on them that a cat could swallow. There are cat toys and there are SAFE cat toys.

I would not consider those pom poms a SAFE cat toy
