I swear I love and hate this toy. My royal kitty is getting her excercise but now she won't play with other toys. Oh and if I am doing anything else she comes sits, stares, and whines at me. Then she runs and sits next to toy looking and me and then the toy. Whining with commence if I don't promptly pick the toy up and swish it about. It's driving me nuts. She's ignoring straws her formerly favorite things in the world. It's driving me nuts I can't do anything anymore without the whine. I may have to hide her toy for a while.
