Some cats go wild for laser toys, chasing the little red dot around the house, up and down furniture, and, in Ruby’s case, even up walls. Well, she tried, anyway. Allegra will chase any reflection of light, even if it’s just the sun reflecting off my phone on the wall, so a laser pointer is definitely a hit with her.
But are laser toys really such a good idea to use with cats? And more importantly, are they safe?Continue Reading

Catnip affects different cats in different ways. Only about 50% of cats are affected by catnip, and not all cats react the same. Kittens are not affected until they’re about two months old (if they fall into the category of cats that do respond).
