Below are toys that I regularly recommend to my clients. To be completely transparent, I am an affiliate for Amazon, so I do get paid when you purchase these supplies using the below links (if they are from Amazon; I am not an affiliate of any of the other companies listed here). HOWEVER, I’ve been recommending these resources long before becoming an affiliate because I know they work, either from experience with my own cats, or through feedback from my clients. If you have any questions about these products, please let me know!
Good toys are a MUST when you have cats. I HIGHLY recommend wand toys – specifically Da Bird – and various lures (which you can easily modify to use with Da Bird) to mimic your cats’ natural prey items: birds, mice, snakes, and insects (among other things). See my article about the various types of cat toys and the prey sequence HERE. Below are the wand toys and lures that I’ve been recommending to my clients for years:
Neko Flies Kattipede (my cats’ favorite – again, you can easily modify this to fit on the Da Bird rod; there are many other Neko Flies lures, too!)
Worm Toy Lures (easily clips on to Da Bird for bug and/or snake play)
Cat Charmer Interactive Wand Toy (this is great for playing snake/string games)
Cat Dancer Lure Toy (this is a simple toy that mimics bugs – cats love it)
Engazer USB-Rechargeable Laser Pointer (comes in purple or white; mimics bugs, and no more dead laser pointers!)
Food Puzzles and Feeders
Trixie Tunnel Feeder (good starter food puzzle, works great with kibble)
Trixie 5-in-1 Activity Center – This is my FAVORITE food puzzle! (great for both dry treats/kibble, and wet food in the shallow square structures)
Trixie Mad Scientist (a little more difficult, good for treats)
