The cool thing about the Telescoping Rod is that it can be pulled out to a length of 32″, but when it’s retracted, it’s only 18″ — small enough to fit into a 20″ suitcase! And you know how important I think it is for toys to travel easily.
As for the Birbug… well, just look at it! I almost thought it was some awesome new species of prey!
I couldn’t wait to kill it — and my human hadn’t even clipped it onto the rod yet. The string can be clipped onto any of the sections, or guides, of the telescoping rod (except for the one on the very tip). You’re only limited by how much room you have in your house for kitty play!
My human tried really hard to get photos of me playing with the Birbug…
But most of them wound up looking like this! So she shot some video instead. Not that the video quality is any better, but stick around to the end (it’s only a minute) — you’ll get to see the little trick I do with it!

I actually run away with all my Neko Flies too. Sometimes if my human doesn’t want to follow me, she’ll let go and just let me drag the rod. Incidentally, all the Neko Flies can be clipped onto the Telescoping Rod too.
