I love to play! And I’m super excited to tell you about my favorite cat toys.
But before I do, Momma says I have to tell you that this post contains something she calls affiliate links. That means if you make a purchase, Momma will make a small commission. It doesn’t cost you anything, but there’s also no pressure at all.
Okay, now that the boring stuff I don’t understand is out of the way, here’s some of my favorite toys!
So, this first one isn’t technically a toy specifically for cats, but it’s seriously one of my favorite things to do. I LOVE when Mom throws me Q-Tips while I’m in the tub. Sometimes, I’ll grab them in between my teeth like a dog does a bone and zoom though the house with it. Another super fun thing is to stop suddenly, fling them in the air, and then chase after them. I’ve broken things doing this, which made Mom kinda mad, but I still think it’s one of the best things EVER!
Ribbon, String, Etc.
First, I should tell you that kitties shouldn’t be allowed to play with ribbons, strings, hairbands, or similar things without Mommy or Daddy supervising. They’re a choking hazard.
Now that you’ve promised to be careful, I can tell you – I really adore strings and ribbons! Mommy laughs at me cause I like to carry them in my mouth while hunched over. See, they’re a secret, so what I do is try to hide them while I’m carrying them and then put them in a special place.
Best store-bought toy ever!! I love to spin the all, jump back to watch it spin, and then leap forward and hit it again. Sometimes, after I hit the ball, I’ll race around the house and see if I can make it back to the toy before the ball stops spinning. Momma says I’m nuts, but I know she means it in a nice way!
This one might seem obvious. Most cats love to play hide and seek with a good tunnel. I do too! But I also love mine for a different reason. Both of the ones Mommy got us have a section of mesh instead of a hole on top. That mesh! Oh man! I just love to gnaw on it. It feels great on my teeth and makes this awesome crinkle sound! You gotta try it! Oh! And I also really like to push on the side with the top of my head and roll it around the floor.
This one really isn’t unique, but I had to include it anyway because running through the house and up to the top tier for a nap is so much fun! Plus, Monkey and I sometimes like to chase each other up the different levels before she hides in one of the huts and I get bored and do something else.
Which of my favorite cat toys are your favorites too? If you ask your Mommy or Daddy to put in the comments, my Momma will write back for me!
