My cats played with these for a short while and haven't touched them since. They are kind of compact, not long like I thought they would be. I thought the tail would be stretched out instead of curled up close to the body. I think they would have liked them better if the tail was long and they could grab on to them. Even my 2 9 month old kittens wouldn't play with them much - a little at first and since then, nothing.
