Cat Toy Gifts

There are few things more amusing than watching a feline seemingly twist herself into pretzel as she tries to get the better of an otherwise innocuous object. Here are five items to give her with countless hours of self-entertainment.

BlockParty 3-Pack Kitten Rattle Ball
There’s something to be said for simplicity. Consider the SmartyKat BlockParty Rattle Ball, a soft ball shaped like a square that rattles when shaken. At least that’s how humans see them. For felines, however, they must be relentlessly pursued, bitten, smacked with paws, chased across floors, cornered, and punished (not in that order). The BlockParty’s soft-fabric construction ensures no gets hurt, and the soft rattle is an excellent way to pinpoint your cat’s location when she’s playing with it (although it can interfere with human sleep time).

SmartyKat CrackleChute Collapsible Tunnel
Cats are curious creatures, and what better way to satisfy that instinct than a seemingly endless tunnel that makes a crinkling sound with her every step? Introduce her to the 9.5-inch diameter entrance to 35-inch long SmartyKat CrackleChute’s Collapsible Tunnel lined with a soft noise-making surface. A convenient hole in the tunnel’s side provides a convenient entry point, and also creates a discreet sleeping area when the unit is placed vertically on one end. The tunnel also collapses for easy out-of-the-way storage or transport.
