I just found out that I am not getting one of these for my birthday... so I should probably just go buy myself one.

The moment I saw it I was like hell yeah. My cats will either hate it (very likely) or be interested for a minute and walk away. I checked out Amazon.com and they are 2-3 month lead time. Does BB actually have any in stock? I have this on my x-mas list for my wife to get me along with the 26" Imperial Tie Fighter.
