Selecting Cat Toys
Whether you have just welcomed your first kitten to your home, or have an older cat, providing your feline friend with the proper toys will enhance their life and offer additional ways to get exercise.
If you are unsure of which toys your cat will enjoy, it's best to get a variety of inexpensive toys to start out with. You'll notice which toys your cat gravitates to and plays with often. You will also learn within the first few weeks what behaviors need to be corrected. For instance, if your cat likes to scratch their nails on your furniture, investing in a scratching post is a great way for cats to scratch, while keeping your furniture in good condition.
Many cats enjoy toys that contain feathers or bells. Cat toys that contain bells and feathers are available in a variety of styles, from simple plush balls, to small stuffed mice and other toys. You can never go wrong with a toy that is filled with catnip or has a catnip scent. Cats are addicted to catnip, and these types of toys can be enjoyed for long periods of time. Cats will relentlessly play with the catnip toys, which will tire them out enough for a small catnap!
Other popular cat toys include unique mounted toys that are great for cats who are alone for long periods of time. These toys are often made of wire and cats can chase and pounce on the toy without any assistance from you, the owner. This is a great way to keep cats from getting into trouble while you are away at work or school.
