If you’re unable to stop by the pet store to stock up on an adorable toy or two in your shopping cart, we’re in the same boat. There’s nothing sweeter than watching your cat roll around on the floor with her favorite toy or watch her tail twitch while she waits for you to break free a new cat toy from the package.
But cat toys aren’t all fluffy fun; They are actually good for your cats’ health. Veterinarians say that gaming has several tangible benefits for our feline friends. First, regular running around the house instead of oversleeping the day can help them maintain a healthy weight. This, in turn, can help them live longer and alleviate chronic health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Gaming also helps them stay mentally sharp. Just like people who do crossword puzzles or sudoku to keep their brains going, the puzzle game captivates cats’ minds and prevents boredom. It even boosts their mood.
Whether you’re dangling a feather toy, tossing a catnip mouse, or setting up a cat obstacle course (yes, there are!), Engaging with your pet strengthens your relationship, which can even result in better behaved pets as they do want to keep you lucky. If you’re convinced, check out our list of the top rated cat toys below – and share your favorites in the comments! Do you also have a dog? We also have recommendations for the best dog toys you can buy.

Best feather wand cat toy
Interactive cat feather wand
Give your couch potato the much needed movement by dangling colorful feathers so they can run after them. The retractable wand adapts to larger or cozier rooms and comes with a number of spring bundles to keep things interesting.
Bite-proof catnip toy
Many cheaper catnip toys fall apart quickly, especially if your kitten is using them for teething or if your adult cat gets really voracious playing. Due to their more robust material, these bite-resistant catnip toys last longer than the classic disposable mice. They also come in packs of five so you can replace each one when it’s worn out.

If you need a stocking filler for your kitten, look no further. Cats love the bouncy motion of these brightly colored feathers when you toss them across the floor, and they’re inexpensive enough that you won’t have to stress yourself with some getting stuck behind the couch.

Refillable catnip cat toy
Catnip toys are classic for good reason: almost every cat gets really crazy for them.

These refillable versions come in fluffy mouse and koala designs, and the catnip is made without the addition of chemicals or pesticides.
Three-tier cat toy with wheels
Interactive puzzle toys like this one will often keep cats busy longer than less addicting catnip mice or bell balls, which can reduce the destruction caused by boredom or disturb you while you are trying to do other things. The movement of the balls mimics the prey, so kittens and older cats will love to chase them around and around.
