The CatTamboo® wild turkey feather wand toy is made from either wild turkey wing or tail feathers depending upon which you choose. We collect wild turkey feathers from hunters and a variety of other sources. Since one hunter can only shoot one or two wild turkeys per season, it is difficult to collect these feathers directly from hunters. For this reason, we do rely on outside sources for our wild turkey feathers.
Features of the wild turkey feather wand toy
The wild turkey feather wand toy varies some depending on which pet toy you choose. You have two choices:

Product comparison to other feather toys
The turkey feather wand toy is our #3 seller. These feathers are exceptionally good if you order a large premium rod. The reason is that these feathers are naturally much larger than most. Some people’s concern is that the large feather might frighten their cat. If your cat is older and even slightly timid, then we recommend purchasing the goose feather toys instead of the wild turkey feather wand toy. Otherwise, our experience is that cats are fearless and have no issue with attacking the larger prey. Playing with the pet toy in an enticing way is the key to a success playtime. If you dive bomb your cat with a large wild turkey feather wand toy and they aren’t feeling that aggressive, then they might very well run for cover. Remember that in a cat’s world, the larger prey often fights back! Wild turkeys has large spurs on their feet and they use them to fight. Just think about it….birds dive bomb larger birds and cats in nature quite often. Your goal should be to imitate your cat’s natural prey. Now many people have larger or more aggressive cats.
