Best Toys To Keep Your Cat Happy And Engaged

Best Toys To Keep Your Cat Happy And Engaged

Ever seen your cat sit, meow and stare at you as if you’re the one who’s invented boredom? But then again, they’re not completely wrong. Our kitties originated in the wild and when we brought them to our homes as the most cherished family members, the responsibility of finding them different sources of fun came to us. 

Cats need more hours of stimulating playtime than you think. Their idea of fun is to run around, catwalk, think about their next prey and finally use their kitty claws and canine to do what they do best – hunt. Cat toys help tap into these natural instincts, keeping them happy, engaged and satisfied. 

Here are 7 cat toys (in no particular order) we consider as the best to keep your cat waaaay away from boredom:

HUFT Tip: Some cats react to catnip while some cats don’t. Here’s a small experiment you can conduct at home. Before introducing a catnip toy to your cat, try feeding them a little bit of catnip (non-toxic shrub). Observe how they react to it. If they like it, only then invest in catnip toys. If you see your cat not showing any reaction to the catnip, chances are they do not have the genetic receptors to feel its effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are there any toys that help with dental health while keeping cats entertained?

Yes! Did you know that matatabi sticks also help remove nasty tartar from a cat’s teeth? HUFT Whirlwind Matatabi Interactive Cat Toy and HUFT Tinkle Tail Matatabi Wand Cat Toy indirectly support dental health by encouraging active play. However, we also recommend getting plush toys (especially with catnip) as they’re great to nibble on and help remove plaque and tartar as well.

For mentally stimulating indoor cats, toys like the HUFT Tinkle Tail Matatabi Wand Cat Toy and HUFT Meowspin Interactive Cat Toy – (With Catnip Inside) are both excellent choices to choose from. These toys are battery operated, engage cats both mentally and physically and provide entertainment while stimulating their natural instincts – all at once!

4. What are the most durable toys for cats who are aggressive chewers?

If your cat likes to play aggressively, then we recommend catnip toys and cat scratchers! Why them and not the ones mentioned in the blog? Well, catnip toys in general help calm your kitten down and cat scratchers are more durable than regular toys. Scratching is also a typical instinctual behaviour for all cats. It enables them to mark their territory, express various emotions, and also serves as a form of self-grooming by removing dead nails, giving them a free self-manicure.

5. What are the safest toys for cats to play with unsupervised?

Toys made of durable, non-toxic materials like plush cat toys or HUFT Squeaky Tennis Balls For Cats, are generally safe. However, we do not recommend unsupervised play. It’s essential to monitor your cat’s playtime with any new toy to ensure their safety at all times. Plus, who likes to have fun alone? Play with your cat and take some time to deepen your bond!

6. Are plush cat toys only suitable for kittens? What should one look for in a plush cat toy?

No, plush cat toys are suitable for both cats and kittens alike. For kittens, a plush toy often becomes their cuddly companion, offering emotional support during sleep. Meanwhile, for adult cats, plush toys can represent “prey,” igniting their hunting instincts and providing entertainment through pouncing and playful battles. The act of chewing also helps them remove plaque and tartar from the teeth.
