Cats are unique pets and need fun, interactive toys to stimulate their senses. You don't need to spend lots of money on cat toys however you should provide your pet with a good range of toys that will allow them to develop and keep them fit and healthy.
Q: What physical attributes do domestic cats have that require them to have a good quality cat toy?
Cats, scientifically called Felis catus, are part of a very unique family. Great reflexes, strong claws, incredibly flexible, fast with a huge jump that surprises small prey. With attributes like this, it is no surprise that they need interactive and often indestructible cat toys.
When choosing toys for your cat, consider the following:
- Cat nip will make your cat go crazy and will improve their fitness
- Laser chaser toys will improve their jump
- Teasers and feathers combined with catnip will provide stimulation
- Choose bright colours and toys that look like their prey and food. Think mouse/mice and cute toys that look like food; and last but not least
- Wind up vibration toys that give your cat endless excitement and fun.
Q: Are there any studies that prove the benefits of an active lifestyle in pets?
In a study at the University of Arizona (see Journal Of Experimental Biology), they found that pets such as dogs develop those mood changing chemicals (endorphins) just like humans. Think how good you feel after a run or exercise and know that your pet will feel the same.
