Any advice of cat toy for family with kids? (4 replies)
It has been about twenty years since I had a cat in elementary school, cat is lovely but my husband thinks it takes too much time to take care. Now my husband finally breaks this rule and agree to keep a cat because of our daughter Moocy, she is three-year-old and loves animal a lot. Last month we went to Moocy’s grandma’s house in countryside, and we adopted a very cute and beautiful kitty, she has white and black fur, our family love her so much. But considering the kitten just left her month and wild, also my daughter is still young, in case of any possible hurt or infection, I don’t want Moocy play with the cat too intimately, so I bought her the first cat toy, it’s a feather fishing rod, it’s really a good interactive toy, Moocy doesn’t need to touch the cat and they both have fun.
I understand people in this forum love cats. My question is, do you have any tips about cat toys? I prefer cheap toys and safe to my daughter. I would love to hear your advice, thanks.
I second that idea Melissa...our cats LOVE chasing lights!! And, for some odd (yet probably really logical in their little furry feline brains) my cats love squeaky dog toys. We have a pink pig that has a few battle scars and tears from when Pip was still alive, and the cats LOVE pouncing on it, rolling around with it, and rubbing on it. Maybe it still smells like their long time friend. They even love fetching it...in a way--I throw it and they run after it, but don't bring it back to me. Ha Ha!
Yes, just be wary of tiny parts that could come off of toys and be a potential choking hazard.
Also, you can make your own cat toys out of ordinary household objects...mine love to hide in paper bags strewn on the floor, cardboard box tunnels, ping pong balls, tennis balls, etc. Your kitty might even tell you what she fancies by playing with something she finds interesting.
Have fun discovering FUN toys!
