It’s easy to see that the best cat toys encourage bonding time between you and your pet. Regular interaction with cat or kitten toys encourages your pet to feel more comfortable with you, as they engage their mind and release stored energy. Many interactive cat toys are designed for use both indoors and out, so no matter where your feline frolics, they can take their favorite toys with them. A wide selection of the best cat toys are available at Petco, so you can keep your favorite feline feeling engaged and satisfied in their day of running, pouncing and playing.
The fact that you get a cat toy from a pet store is no guarantee that it's safe for kitty, either. Store-bought toys, though they may be made especially for cats, can be dangerous -- or become dangerous if they get broken. Fake mice, for instance, can come with small plastic eyes that a cat might be able to remove and swallow. Remove the eyes, feathers or other things your cat could swallow before letting it play with the toy. Cheap, stuffed soft toys also could be dangerous if the cat is able to tear it open and swallow the filling. Unsecured standing posts can topple down, too.

You can make a cat toy with a few simple supplies that most people have around the house. Although previous studies provide a foundation in understanding some cat preferences, no study has yet conducted formal cat preference assessments for triads of stimuli across human social, food, scent, and toy categories. There is also a great need to consider a wider range of stimuli in general, especially biologically relevant stimuli and other stimuli that are common in domestic cat environments and could be used in enrichment, training or behavior modification settings. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine individual cat preferences within and between items in human social, food, scent, and toy categories in two populations (shelter and pet) of domestic cats.Domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus) engage in a variety of relationships with humans and can be conditioned to engage in numerous behaviors using Pavlovian and operant methods Increasingly cat cognition research is providing evidence of their complex socio-cognitive and problem solving abilities. Nonetheless, it is still common belief that cats are not especially sociable or trainable. This disconnect may be due, in part, to a lack of knowledge of what stimuli cats prefer, and thus may be most motivated to work for. The current study investigated domestic cat preferences at the individual and population level using a free operant preference assessment. Adult cats from two populations (pet and shelter) were presented with three stimuli within each of the following four categories: human social interaction, food, toy, and scent. Proportion of time interacting with each stimulus was recorded. The single most-preferred stimulus from each of the four categories were simultaneously presented in a final session to determine each cat’s most-preferred stimulus overall. Although there was clear individual variability in cat preference, social interaction with humans was the most-preferred stimulus category for the majority of cats, followed by food. This was true for cats in both the pet and shelter population. Future research can examine the use of preferred stimuli as enrichment in applied settings and assess individual cats’ motivation to work for their most-preferred stimulus as a measure of reinforcer efficacy.Joy for All Companion Pet Cat from Hasbro is electronic toy cat for kids and adults.
