Cats adore toys. If you were to close your eyes and reflect on your happiest moments with your cat, chances are that the images that come to mind are your cat(s) playing. Hunting, attacking, overpowering, and hitting toys around provides cats and their people lots of joy - so why do cats so often overlook the toys we bring home for them?
There is one very straightforward rule to keep in mind when buying toys for cats: cats love a variety of toys. They like an assortment of interactive cat toys that use all of their hunting skills. If you have enough toys, you can rotate your cat's choices so they can hunt for a beloved toy. Just don't hide a favorite toy away permanently. Ensure that your cats have chances to play with all of their toys regularly.
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 unusual shapes.
Chew toys are a great choice for cats that enjoy 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 treasured toys that can soothe 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 senior cats.
Teasers and wands are great toys for sharing playtime with your cat.
Tunnels become the hiding places where you can easily find your cat.
And variety packs help ensure your cat always has a fun toy.
Cats favor toys that are light and small enough to be swatted without a lot of effort. They also like toys that are small enough to be grasped. And their favorite toys are objects they can play with in multiple different ways.
When you are looking for toys for your cat, you need to make sure they do not 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. Small button eyes and button noses are cute, but anything that can be bitten off and swallowed is hazardous for your cat. Cats of all ages can be injured by toys with sharp points and edges.
