It in­cor­po­rates a mo­torised unit and feath­ered wand at­tach­ment—both are con­cealed be­neath a polyester cover. When the de­vice is switched on (there are four speed set­tings), the feath­ers move er­rat­i­cally to sim­u­late the move­ments of a real prey, en­tic­ing your cat to chase, pounce and leap.
