Cat toys are an essential part of your cats life, not only
for the fun aspect but for health reasons. Encouraging cat play
helps your cat to exercise, keep fit and maintain a healthy weight.
There are a vast array of cat toys available that range from cat
toy balls, cat toy mice, catnip toys, interactive cat toys, electronic
cat toys, cat bubbles and even cat DVDs to name but a few.
Interactive play sessions help to strengthen the bond between you
and your cat and can help a shy cat or kitten to gain more confidence.
Many cat toys are now specifically designed to appeal to your cats
instinctive desire to stalk and catch prey and to stimulate senses
of sound, sight, smell and touch,. Cat toys now come in various
shapes and forms with bells, feathers, rattles and catnip. Some
cat toys even have movement activated microchips where the toys
emit sounds when played with. There are also cat toys that make
scrunchy, crinkley noises when touched. Cat toy wands and cat teasers
are a favourite with cats and one of the most popular is the Da
Bird which has feathers that are aerodynamically configured to flutter
when moved and mimic the action of a bird in flight.
Play sessions with your cat should involve different cat toys and
different approaches of play to see what generates interest in your
cat or kitten. Make the toys act like a bird or mouse. Move the
toy away from your cat so he can pursue it, hide it around a corner,
under a rug and make it freeze and then move away again. Let your
cat set the pace. Your cat will enjoy the pursuit but let him win,
let him sometimes pounce on the toy or catch it so he has the thrill
of a victory. For added interest introduce cat play cubes into play
sessions. Your cat or kitten will love to chase in and out of them,
roll around in them and pounce on them.
You will soon get to know what style of play your cat enjoys and
what are his favourite kinds of toys. These play sessions will add
fulfilment to his day, ease stress, keep him fit and active and
strengthen the bond between him and you, adding fun and happiness
to his life and yours.
Always remember with all cat toys safety is the first priority
and they should be constantly checked for wear and tear and if any
damage occurs they should be discarded immediately. It is also recommended
that you supervise your cats and kittens when playing with their
