A randomized laser *certain* to give your cat the zoomies, but that’s okay because you won’t have to be the one who operates it for hours at a time — it’s automatic!
A three-tier cat toy with polka-dotted balls they can bat at. One of my cats puts her arms on both sides and essentially plays a modified version of tetherball just with herself.
A fruit tart bed any cat should be berry into. Not only does it provide a cozy place for them to cuddle up, but is also comes with a handful of lemon, kiwi, strawberry, and blueberry-shaped cushions they can attack as soon as they wake up from a nap.
A cactus scratching post for all the indoor kitties who miss the great outdoors, but not having to catch their own food, find their own shelter, or go without 24/7 snuggles.
A large catnip-spiked cotton swab if your lil’ angel has an affinity for the real thing. Give them this and maybe, 🤞🏻just maybe, they’ll stop pulling used ones out of the trash.
A floppy robotic fish that only moves when your cat interacts with it. Once they get the hang of it, I guarantee they’ll be karate chopping and bunny kicking the ish out of it.
A fluffy anti-anxiety donut bed with a raised rim that keeps your kitty feeling nice and secure. The fluffy material also mimics cat fur, so it feels like they’re cuddling their mom.
An interactive feather and mouse game that’s basically like Whac-A-Mole for your cat. Lucky for them, they don’t have to hunt down a carnival or pay $5 a pop to play.
A seven-piece catnip toy set with adorable plush versions of all my favorite treats and carbs: ice cream cones, cookies, croissants, and baguettes.
A laptop-shaped scratcher if the last year of WFH life has led your cat to believe that they *too* have a nine to five.
A UFO-shaped teaser with two 360-degree battery-operated butterflies and a track with two impossible-to-remove balls. The dual toy can be used as is or even separated if your kitty prefers to play with them individually.
A mouse-shaped feeder that will keep your cat on their toes by encouraging their natural hunting instincts. Fill it up with food, hide it somewhere in the house, and then let them loose.
A remote-controlled robotic feather with wheels if your cat loves to fetch, but hasn’t quite gotten around to learning how to bring the toy back to you. This way, you don’t have to pace back and forth collecting it, you can just settle into the couch with remote in hand.
A catnip-filled fortune cookie so Kitty Purry can take part in takeout nights as well. Her fortune? The always sage “blame it on the dog.”
A set of robotic swimming fish if your kitties are weirdly intrigued by water. The palm-sized gadgets light up and their fins keep them on the move whether placed in a bowl, sink, or — if your babies are especially brave — bath tub.
A rotating sisal scratcher ball for those energetic kitties who were most definitely a DJ in their past life. The durable scratcher *should* (no promises though — you know how cats are) even be enticing enough to keep them away from your couch.
A zebra-print activity mat that looks exactly like a baby play mat and that just tickles me pink. If your kitten could use some tummy time, the attached hanging toys will keep them entertained.
A banana toy sure to please as it’s filled with nothing but 100 percent catnip! One reviewer said the faux fruit is so potent, their fur baby is still attacking it a full year later!
A spherical Tuft + Paw hideout with a faux-fur blanket just your cat’s size. If your bb is anything like mine, they’ll hang out in there until you walk by at perfect swatting distance.
A slow feeder toy if your chonky boi is fascinated by food, food, and — ahh, yes — more food. The tubular toy encourages them to hunt so they don’t scarf down their kibble and instantly puke it up. The non-slip mat also ensures they don’t cheat by just knocking the whole thing over.
A wooden interactive hunting toy with levers that control a handful of catnip-laced toys. Start off by manning it for them and then eventually, they may just get it themselves.
A three-story cat tree so your kitties can spy on the neighbor’s children, or — in my case — the Ecuadorian food truck that’s always bumping just a stone’s throw from my apartment.
A refillable catnip mat for lazy lil’ kitties who rather roll around on the floor than get in some cardio chasing after a robotic toy.
A catnip-filled carrot your fur child can bunny kick as hard as it wants. That way, your arm (or other cat) can catch a break.
And a snuggly tiger plushie for lonely little kittens, grieving senior cats, and every feline in between. The behavioral aid has a “real feel” pulsing heartbeat and it comes with a disposable heating patch (you slip it inside the stuffed animal’s tummy) that will keep it warm for up to 24 hours.
Your cat when they overhear you telling anyone how much they love their new toy:
