Cats adore toys. If you were to close your eyes and think back on your happiest times with your cat, chances are that the images that come to mind are your cat(s) playing. Hunting, pouncing, overpowering, and hitting toys around gives cats and their people lots of joy - so why do cats so often dismiss the toys we bring home for them?
There is one very straightforward rule to remember when getting toys for cats: cats want a variety of toys. They like an assortment of interactive cat toys that use each of their hunting skills. If you have enough toys, you can rotate your cat's choices so they can search for a beloved toy. Just don't hide a favorite toy away for good. Ensure your cats have chances to use all of their toys often.
What are the kinds of cat toys? Here are just a few:
Balls and chasers entice your cat to chase with feathers, fun noises, and uncommon shapes.
Chew toys are a great option for cats that love to chew. They also help to keep your cat's breath fresh and their teeth clean.
Interactive and electronic toys bring out the best in your cat's hunting skills.
Plush and mice toys become cherished toys that can relax and ease your cat when it's time to go into the carrier.
Scratcher posts and mats are a must for all ages of cats, from kittens to older cats.
Teasers and wands are terrific toys for sharing playtime with your cat.
Tunnels become the hiding places where you can quickly find your cat.
And variety packs help make sure your cat always has a fun toy.
Cats prefer toys that are light and small enough to be smacked without a lot of effort. They also enjoy toys that are small enough to be grasped. And their favorite toys are objects they can engage with in numerous different ways.
When you are trying to find toys for your cat, you need to be sure they don't have any strings that could be pulled off and swallowed. They need to be large enough that your cat won't try to eat them. They need to be made from non-toxic materials. Tiny button eyes and button noses are cute, but anything that can be bitten off and swallowed is dangerous for your cat. Cats of all ages can be harmed by toys with sharp points and edges.
