I opened the package, my kitty was next to me. As my nephew put it together, my kitty was near by. When we were alone, I walked up to it trying to decide where to put it, where the damage was extreme, and she went right up to it. And Wallah she was clawing right at it !
She didn't exactly play with the toy, because she is an older kitty and is not that active. Who knows...Never know!
