Cats are captivated by 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, attacking, overpowering, and hitting toys around provides 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 basic rule to consider when buying toys for cats: cats enjoy a variety of toys. They like a variety of interactive cat toys that use each of their hunting skills. If you have enough toys, you can rotate your cat's choices so they can search for a favorite toy. Just don't hide a favorite toy away permanently. Ensure your cats have opportunities to use all of their toys frequently.
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 skills.
Plush and mice toys become cherished 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 older cats.
Teasers and wands are fantastic 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 favor toys that are light and small enough to be smacked without a lot of effort. They also prefer toys that are small enough to be grasped. And their favorite toys are objects they can play with in numerous different ways.
When you are searching for toys for your cat, you need to be sure they don't 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 must be made from non-toxic materials. Little button eyes and button noses are adorable, but anything that can be bitten off and swallowed is risky for your cat. Cats of all ages can be harmed by toys with sharp points and edges. At Urban Tails Pet Supply, we only provide toys that are safe for your cat.
