Cats are fascinated with 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, jumping, overpowering, and hitting toys around provides cats and their people tons of joy - so why do cats so often ignore the toys we bring home for them?
There is one very simple rule to consider 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 options so they can hunt for a favorite toy. Just don't hide a favorite toy away for good. Ensure that your cats have chances to play with 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 unique shapes.
Chew toys are a great option 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 skills.
Plush and mice toys end up being 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 older cats.
Teasers and wands are excellent 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 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 several different ways.
When you are looking for 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. Little 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. At Woof Gang Bakery Boulder, we only provide toys that are safe for your cat.
