Cats are captivated by 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, jumping, 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 practical rule to keep in mind when getting toys for cats: cats love a variety of toys. They like a variety 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 search for a preferred toy. Just don't hide a favorite toy away for good. Ensure that your cats have opportunities to enjoy all of their toys regularly.
What are the groups of cat toys? Here are just a few:
Balls and chasers entice your cat to chase with feathers, fun noises, and peculiar shapes.
Chew toys are a great option for cats that like 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 abilities.
Plush and mice toys become beloved toys that can calm 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 more mature cats.
Teasers and wands are terrific 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 like toys that are light and small enough to be knocked without a lot of effort. They also prefer toys that are small enough to be grasped. And their favorite toys are objects they can interact with in numerous different ways.
When you are shopping for toys for your cat, you need to make sure they do not have any strings that could be pulled off and ingested. 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 dangerous for your cat. Cats of all ages can be harmed by toys with sharp points and edges.
