5 Interactive Toys Your Cat Wants

Guest Post by Truffles of Mochas, Mysteries and Meows

Hey everybody, it’s Truffles! Today I’m here to discuss a very important topic…TOYS!
Kitties that want to stay fit and healthy should be able to have fun while doing it, right? That’s why we’re such big fans of interactive toys here at my house. Some of these toys are made for us to play with by ourselves so we can keep busy while our Moms are working hard to support us, and others are made for us to play with together. These are extra special because they give us quality time together, helping us to build a stronger bond.

Here are some of our favorites:

  1. Petmate Crazy Circle Interactive Cat Toy: This is my current favorite toy. I have so much fun sticking my paw in the slots and try as I might, I just can’t get that darn ball out! I’m going to keep trying, though! Sometimes I even let Mommy help me!
  2. PetSafe SlimCat Interactive Toy and Food Dispenser: I love playing with balls, so the best thing ever is a ball that dispenses treats! This toy helps cats that eat their food too fast and then throw it up eat more slowly, and overweight kitties get a little workout while noshing their vittles!
  3. Interactive Feather Wand Cat Toy: Wand toys are the perfect cat toy because they bring out a cat’s basic hunting instinct. The best cat toys are fun for people, too, and wand toys require human participation. Mine is from the Natural Pet Company, but other favorites are Tiger Teasers, Da Bird, and Neko Flies.
  4. Peek-a-Prize Pet Toy Box: This toy is designed to build on our instinct to watch cracks and crevices by partially hiding some of our favorite toys, and we can have fun fishing them out. Peek-A-Play is especially great to keep us occupied during those times that we’re left home alone. Remember to rotate the toys in the box so we’re always digging for something different, and for extra fun, put a few treats inside!
  5. Crinkle balls: I have a ton of these in every color of the rainbow! Balls that make a cool crinkle sound are so much fun to carry around the house and bat around. Humans can join in the fun by rolling them across the floor too!

You know what else? You don’t even need a fancy store-bought toy to make us happy. Simple household items like crumpled up pieces of paper, cardboard boxes, milk jug tops and toilet paper rolls make us just as happy. The most important thing is to keep us active and have fun with us! We want to spend many happy and healthy years with you!

  4. I think sometimes cats like the toys that aren’t meant to be toys to begin with. Right now, my cat’s favorite toy is thin plastic strips I attached to a pipe cleaner.

    • Too funny. It’s like that with the dogs too. Our Sally’s favorite was plastic bottles…
