Cats love 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, jumping, overpowering, and hitting toys around gives cats and their people lots of joy - so why do cats so often ignore the toys we bring home for them?
There is one very practical rule to keep in mind when getting toys for cats: cats enjoy 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 options so they can hunt for a preferred toy. Just don't hide a favorite toy away forever. Make sure your cats have chances to play with all of their toys often.
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 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 abilities.
Plush and mice toys eventually are 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 ensure your cat always has a fun toy.
Cats prefer toys that are light and small enough to be whacked without a lot of effort. They also like 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 trying to find toys for your cat, you need to be sure they don't 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. Tiny 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 hurt by toys with sharp points and edges. At The Scoop Feed & Supply, we only offer toys that are safe for your cat.
