Here Are 17 of the Best Cat Toys Money Can Buy
"It's incredibly important to rotate toys for your cat," Bell says. "Cats should see their toys as "prey," and hunting, catching, and 'killing' toys is the best way to satisfy their natural, instinctive prey drive. Once a toy is 'dead,' it's not as appealing to the cat and just becomes part of the environment." Cats have different preferences when it comes to the toys they like, and having a selection will also give your fierce feline the chance to choose the "prey" that most interests her.
To prevent boredom, Bell suggests having a stash of toys that you can put away and reintroduce at a later time—and we've scoured thousands of internet reviews for the best of the best for your cat toy stash, from toys that mimic mice and nature to interactive toys, catnip toys, and toys for bored kitties.
