Indoor cats sometimes miss out on their natural hunting and playing instincts. If your cat is bored and doesn’t get the exercise she needs, check out some of these amazing cat toys! We’ve put together a list of the best and we’re sure that your cat will love them. First, let’s take a look at some of the things you should know to better inform your decision when it comes to cat toys.
Type: Interactive cat toys are great for encouraging play in your kitties. Tunnels have your kitties running and exploring, while teaser toys get them up and around. There are a variety of different toys, and some have multiple features!
Pieces: This is the number of different things that come with the toy. If there are multiple toys, this will tell you how many. If there are extras, look here for them. It’s good to know what you’re getting.
Size: The dimensions of the product can tell you if it’s good for your kitties or not. Smaller tunnels won’t be great for larger cat breeds. This statistic also tells you where it will fit in your home.
Feeder: Feeder toys either completely replace bowl feeding for your cats, or they encourage exploration and play with treats as a motivation. Cats will gladly solve puzzles if there’s a treat to be had when they figure it out.
Age: Some toys are specifically targeted to cats or kittens, so make sure that you know which is safe for your cat. This is specifically true of catnip toys – they should be kept away from younger kittens. Keep this in mind.
Machine Washable: Are the fabrics machine washable? This goes for plastics as well. If they can be thrown into the washing machine or the dishwasher, we will let you know. Easy cleanup is important when dealing with your furry friends.
