|Brulee watching the dragonfly|
Mom Paula attended Global Pet Expo 2016 in March to see all of the wonderful products for cats. She had a great time visiting with the representatives from PetSafe® and we were tickled pink that she brought one of the new interactive cat toys home for us to try out. The Flitter Cat Toy is a battery operated teaser toy that has a dragonfly attached to each end. The toy goes round and round in a random motion that entices even the most "bored" kitty. When the Flitter toy is turned on, the movements are random, which help keep us engaged and the dangly dragonfly teasers are the purrfect bait. The dragonflies also make a cool noise that attracts our attention when we're in a different part of the house.

The Flitter cat toy come disassembled in a small box. There are four basic parts: The base, two teaser arms and the base legs. It was pretty simple to put together and Mom Paula had it ready for us in less than 5 minutes. Before you can turn it on, you'll need to pop in three AA batteries (not included). Once it's turned on, it will run for approximately 10-15 minutes.
We really like this toy because both of us can play with it at the same time since there are two dangly dragonflies attached. If you really want to be entertained throughout the day, there is a "Play While You Are Away" mode which will turn on about three different times about two hours apart. We enjoyed this feature on other PetSafe automated cat toys we've had. Mom Paula recommends you monitor how your cats react to the toy before using this mode. We love to play with it even when it isn't moving and so far the dragonflies have remained intact.

The video below shows both of us interacting with the Flitter. Mom Paula couldn't capture both of us playing with it at the same time, but there are snippets of us playing with the dragonflies when the toy is turn on and off. Truffle can be pretty rough with a toy (for her small size) and the Flitter has survived. The dragonflies are attached with string, so please monitor your cats closely before leaving them alone with it.
