Cats adore toys. If you were to close your eyes and think back on your happiest moments with your cat, chances are that the images that come to mind are your cat(s) playing. Hunting, pouncing, overpowering, and hitting toys around provides cats and their people lots of joy - so why do cats so often disregard the toys we bring home for them?
There is one very basic rule to remember 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 plenty of toys, you can rotate your cat's options so they can hunt for a preferred toy. Just don't hide a favorite toy away permanently. Ensure your cats have chances to play with all of their toys regularly.
What are the categories 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 choice 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 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 kitties to more mature 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 like toys that are light and small enough to be whacked 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 various different ways.
When you are shopping for toys for your cat, you need to be 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 should be made from non-toxic materials. Little button eyes and button noses are adorable, 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. At Pet's General Store, we only offer toys that are safe for your cat.
