Cats are finicky creatures, and any feline parent knows that getting a new toy is always a gamble. With so many choices out there, sometimes it helps to look at the best-selling cat toys for guidance. Top-sellers have proven track records among Amazon reviewers and typically fall into four distinct categories:
- Laser Pointers: These are great toys for those spastic, hyperactive cats who love nothing more than chasing bright objects around the room.
- Ribbon Wands: These classic toys are perfect for curious kitties who love to chase, bat, and swat things.
- Scratch pads: These satisfying contraptions are designed for cats who love to claw at everything (including your drapes).
- Tunnels: These devices are ideal for cats who love to explore new places or hide out in cozy nooks.
Given these different styles, I’ve put together a list of the most popular cat toys on Amazon in each category. Before diving in, take a minute to think about your kitty’s personality. Do they like to chase things around your home, bat tiny objects, or scratch their claws against the furniture? When making your selection, keep in mind that you should always supervise your cats during play in case they're able to break off any small pieces.
