The owner of Pet Fit for Life reached out to me in mid-January, asking me if we would be interested in reviewing their 3-in-1 cat wand toy. I am always game to review a cat wand toy as long as all the materials used are safe for cats - and he assured me that they are - "everything we use is absolutely safe for you and especially your cats".
The Pet Fit for Life's 3-in-1 Cat Wand Toy, is exactly that - it features the following:
- Cat Wand Toy with a bird feather attachment
- Cat Wand Toy with a squiggly worm attachment
- Cat Wand Toy with a LED "laser" light
Giving you 3 ways to play with your kitty....but wait, there's more!
- Bird Chirpping "Call to Action" - There's a button you can press on the side of the blue wand handle that makes a bird chirping sound that brings your kitties running if they didn't hear the bell when you picked up the wand toy.
- Bell - There's a small removable bell that's on the clip where you switch our the feather or the worm, which also helps the kitties know that it's time to play.
The Pet Fit for Life 3-in-1 Cat Wand Toy is patented and Pet Fit for Life has been in business since 2013. They also have a 100% seller rating on Amazon (with over 11,000 ratings). Additionally, they offer a 100% customer satisfaction money back guarantee on all their products.
The wand toy has a 30" reach and a 27" braided tether - the wand is made from molded fiberglass for flexibility and durability. The handle is made of ABS plastic with finger grips. Once assembled, the wand is 30" long and made from .
What's better? They battery (for the bird chirping) is rechargeable - so no need to buy batteries or hassle with replacing them.

It was an immediate hit as you can see in the unboxing video below:
Pet Fit For Life Feather/Squiggly Worm Cat Wand Unboxing Video
Trigg really liked this wand toy - he likes all wand toys, really...but this one (I kept it in the original box on a table - I do not recommend leaving a cat wand toy alone with your cats - they should always have human supervision when playing with wand toys), he would knock off the table and make mouse squeaks (that's how he meows), until I would go and play with him with the wand toy. It was super cute that he asked to play with it daily. Charlie likes it too - but does more of an ambush approach, as you can see with the unboxing video below and the review video below.
I like that this cat teaser toy has so many options wrapped up in one toy. If you don't know what your cat likes - bird feathers, squiggly worm, laser light - just buy this one toy to figure it out. Or if you have 3 toys, you can replace them with just this one.
The feather attachment held up the best.
The squiggly worm is well-loved by my cats, but would occasionally lose material (another reason I highly recommend human supervision at all times with this toy - so they aren't swallowing anything or getting a string wrapped around them). The squiggly worm losing bits of material was more of a safety precaution for me. It DID NOT affect the cats ability to play with it or their desire to play with it - they knew no different. I know that Pet Fit for Life sells replacements, but also wondered if the squiggly worm falling apart was a common occurrence, so I wrote them and here's what I heard back:
“Hi Jenny, Very surprising to see what happened to the Squiggly Worm attachment. We have had great success with these attachments and the cats just go nuts for them. I can send you a replacement for the one you have. We also sell replacement packs of the worms that are relatively inexpensive. Here is the link to our listing on Amazon. Generally if a customer writes us and says that through normal play they think the Squiggly Worm or any attachment did not hold up like it should we will offer to send them a replacement free of charge. As you can see we have over 200 reviews on these with a 4.5 star rating. If you would like me to send you one, please let me know. It’s up to you of course. Cat play, as you know, is a pretty rough business, lots of claws and teeth. We stand by our products with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee, though.”
The laser light, as I presumed, was not a favorite for my two - they just don't enjoy chasing laser lights because (I think) there is no reward - you never get to catch anything. I watched an interview or something long ago that mentioned the importance of a cat being able to catch his or her prey - an important part of the play (hunt) process. We had dogs that loved laser lights, so there are pets that appreciate them and cats too - you can just experiment to see what works for your pets. And that's the beauty of this toy - so many options wrapped up in one.
The attachments are easy to switch out - there's a fishing rod eye at the tip of the rod, with the removable bell. I REALLY appreciate the removable bell, so I could play with my cats with the wand toy when I was on the phone!

We received the Pet Fit For Life Feather/Squiggly Worm Cat Wand for review from the manufacturer and also asked that they pay a small review fee. Receiving the free product and the review fee did not influence this honest post.
