Does anybody have the same problem with the da-bird toy: the string gets all tangled and twisted so the feathers don't fly anymore? Everytime I untangle it and swing it around it becomes tangled again in a few seconds, very frustrating!

Does anyone know how to solve this problem???

I haven't had any issues with mine, so I'm not much help.:ThumbsDown: The only thing I can suggest is maybe try a different attachment to see if that helps?! I know when I ordered mine online it came with 6 different attachments.

Unfortunately mine didn't come with any extra attachments. I don't think it's the real deal anyway, not sure you can buy the original over here :ThumbsDown:
Thanks for the imput though, I was thinking of removing the string and attach a different one (just seems like a lot of work... :Dizzy:)

I believe this was the question:

I think that was a perfectly fine answer haha!! Certainly you would not have to worry about untangling it!

:Woo::LOL:

Ya, they don't sell Da Bird where I am either. The ones they have in Petsmart here are an imitation. I found a seller on ebay who was great. I got the Da Bird with all attachments for like $15 including shipping. I saved the seller if you want the info. You get to choose your colours for the attachments too! :BigSmile:

My cats love da Bird but they are so darn expensive and pretty much stop working after they've been chewed on--and what good is a cat toy if you can't have a gnaw on it!

Thanks for the tip but I think I'm just going to change the string, 15 bucks seems a bit pricy compared to some fishing wire :LOL:

This one isn't the real deal so it was pretty cheap, and even though he's been cheewing on it, it still works! Apart from the string part that is :LOL:
