From wide-eyed kitten to wise elder cat, playtime with your feline friend is enjoyable for you both, but it’s also a strong contributor to their overall health and well-being. It’s important for a cat to stay physically and mentally active and entertained throughout their lifetime. This is especially important if you have an indoor-only or solo cat who doesn’t get as much organic stimulation.
Cat toys are designed with a cat’s primal instincts in mind to keep their senses sharp. Depending on the age of your cat along with what they find interesting, a cat toy can provide hours of enjoyment. It can even help your kitty maintain a healthy weight by motivating them to pounce, jump, kick, and claw at something they perceive as prey.
As any human companion to a cat knows, cats can be beyond picky when it comes to what excites them and what bores them. Finding the right toy or toys can also help you to bond with your cat which ideally leads to lots of purrs and snuggles post-playtime.
To help you with your search, we rounded up the best cat toys for keeping your kitty pawfully amused.
