Get Your Cat Moving with an Interactive Puzzle Feeder
Let’s get straight to the point, okay?
Cats are food motivated.
Their entire lives are scheduled around sleeping and eating. But left to their own devices and they may overeat.
Which is where an interactive puzzle feeder comes in.
Not only does an interactive toy promote exercise and slower eating, but it’s also a healthy and fun activity for your cat.
Our puzzle feeder gets used every night for treats. After a solid 10-15 minutes of play, our cats are ready for nap time.
Get the Party Started with Savory Cat Snacks
In the words of Julia Child, everything in moderation…including moderation.
Crispy cat treats are like potato chips for your cats. With a few shakes of the jug, you’ll have your cat’s undivided attention.
My cats love these treats, and they work perfectly in the puzzle feeder.
Plus, they contain less than 2 calories per treat for the cat concerned about his youthful weight. And the crunchy treats help cats keep their teeth healthy.
That said, don’t let your cat serve herself, or she might eat the entire Friskies party mix in one sitting!
Arouse Curiosity with Realistic Squishy Lizards
Cats are hunters.
My cats love to chase, bat, and run with these squiggly lizard toys!
I love that the lizards are chewable, waterproof, and eco-friendly. Some of them even glow in the dark.
I attach the lizards to a cat toy wand with string and let the cats chase it around the room. It’s a fun, vigorous workout for all!
Create A Calm Oasis with Catnip
Want to spark joy for you and your cat? Try catnip.
Once the high wears off, your kitty will be relaxed, calm, and ready for naptime.
Look for catnip produced without chemicals, pesticides, or other preservatives, to make it a safe and healthy gift for cats.
Give Your Cat More Room with a View
Chances are, there is a lot of wasted space in your home from your cat’s point of view.
Think vertically. A cat tree is like a jungle gym for your cat and gives kitty more room to climb, nap, and overlook his domain without using much floor space.
What’s more, a cat tree with a scratchable surface can keep your cat’s claws clean and his territory intact without resorting to destroying your furniture.
Make sure to right-size the tree for your cat. And place it in a desirable location with optimal vantage points. Baby doesn’t like to be put in a corner!
Give Your Cat A Luxurious Sleep
Spend any amount of time at home with cats, and you’ll notice one thing: Cats like to sleep—a lot.
Most cats spend, on average, about 15 hours a day getting some shut-eye.
While nothing can replace the coziness of a human
pillow lap, a comfortable cat bed offers an oasis of calm.
The best cat beds are plush, self-warming, and supportive so your cat can snuggle inside without tipping over. Further, the bed should be washing-machine friendly and well-suited to your décor.
Keep Kitty Entertained For Hours with Mice
Ever wish you could get your cat to be more playful while you sit on the couch? Try the Skitter Critters Catnip Mice.
I’ve purchased many gifts for cats over the years and this is hands down the best $3.00 I’ve ever spent on a cat toy!
Both of my cats love running around with these adorable catnip-filled mice. And the best part is they can even get them moving all on their own.
After a while, you might wonder what happened to all of the mice. Check under your couch, and I guarantee you’ll find the stash!
