Choosing the Right Toys for Your Cat


Play is vitally important to a cat’s mental and physical health, and it’s especially important for indoor cats. Even though cats may sleep up to 16 hours a day, when they’re awake, they need stimulation, and the best way to accomplish this is with play. In the wild, when lions, tigers and other wild cats aren’t sleeping, they’re either hunting, or teaching their young to hunt. And play is nothing more than channeling your domestic tiger’s hunting instinct into play.

In an article for Animal Wellness Magazine, I covered all aspects of choosing the right toys for your cat, from choosing the right toys to toy safety and how to entice your cats to play.

    We each have our own prefurences at our house. I like small mice and nippy pillows. Einstein likes flying mice on a string. Fitz and Toby like a string on a stick (so do I) and Rumpy likes it all. Oh we all like a nice nippy nanner or brown bag. Purrs

    Can’t get any information. Only pictures. Try again when this actually works.

    Lulu will actually bring me a toy if she doesn’t feel she is getting played with enough.
