Catnip Cat Toys Considerations

Feb 10, 2008
Catnip cat toys are a great gift for any of your feline friends. Which types of toy should be acquired for kitty? A catnip mouse always ranks highly. Felines enjoy stalking and chasing down victims as prey, and catnip mice are an ideal combination of hunting and the love of catnip.

Plasticized catnip mice are wonderful for knocking across hard surfaces since they go flying easily so your feline friend can pursue the mouse with predatorial intent. These are inexpensive and it's easy to buy a bag of several of them for a few bucks. Bigger, more real catnip mice also exist, ideally suited for more intent wrestling and rabbit kicking your little friend will enjoy. Often the bigger ones will have come with bells on, as it were, sewn to or in the interior of the toy such that your hunter will love the scent and the musical jingling breaking the silence of the night you've become so attached to.

Are there more catnip cat toys out there? Beyond catnip mice exist several more infused delights. To be sure, several types of toys can be refilled via a pouch that you just place more catnip in. If you buy bulk catnip then you can keep them fresh a long time. Certain types of catnip cat toys are simply containers for catnip. It might look like an ordinary cloth bag, or possibly more artistically rendered items like food your feline might recognize. Keep in mind a refillable toy will be enjoyable for longer, as catnip is more potent when fresh, thus having more value.

Another popular catnip cat toy aremscented balls for chasing around. Much like the small catnip mice, these are best suited to a smooth floor, since they will have enhanced rollability and your little friend will enjoy attacking them, thus getting more exercise.

Some catnip items can hung over doorframes or mounted to walls, so on occasion of their attack by your crazy cat, they bounce to and fro, and cats will assume that these are worth a fight, and therefore more necessary to attack!

Keep in mind that for sanitation and hygiene concerns, usually catnip cat toys are non-returnable as they may have been licked and drooled on. Catnip doesn't go in them by accident, of course! As noted previously, a multitude of choices do exist, though of course any are always fun!
