While we’d like to think that we provide enough entertainment for our furry friends, sometimes even they need some extra goodies to keep them occupied while we’re away. With an abundance of toys out there in the market, choosing the right toy for your fur kid can be a bit daunting, especially if you’re not sure what to get for them. If you’re looking for some inspiration for your pet’s entertainment, here’s our list of 10 toys to spoil your beloved fur kid with:
Make sure your little buddy gets the cuddles they need whenever you’re away! A soft toy can be a great addition to your pet’s toy collection. Not only is it multipurpose (it can be used for fetch), these kinds of toys can be easily cleaned in the wash if it gets too dirty.
Will Work for Treats
Make mealtime for your smart feline a game by placing their food or treats inside tubes that they can get out using their paws!
Does your cat love to lounge around the house by the window? If yes, get a kitty hammock and place it by the window for them to plop themselves onto during the day for some bird-watching action.
If your dog loves fetch and the water, then combine these two activities for some splashing fun. Don’t forget to use a brightly coloured floating toy to make it easier for your dog to spot in the water when you play fetch with them.
Tug of War
Sometimes a good ol’ rope for some tugging action is all your pup needs for entertainment. Gift your fur kid a durable reinforced rope so that they can chew to their heart’s content.
Jump and Play
Unleash your cat’s inner predatory hunting skills with a bird-like toy that’s hung slightly above the ground. This toy will surely keep your kitty’s occupied for hours as it attempts again and again to pounce on its toy.
A Tale of Cat and Mouse
Although this mouse may not be the real deal for your cat, you can fill these toys up with some organic catnip to get your kitty going for some chasing action!
Fun Bouncy Ball
A classic toy that can never go wrong, opt for a bounce ball made of rubber so that it’ll bounce in different and unexpected directions to keep your dog interested for hours on end.
Classic Giant Treat
Sometimes a dog just needs a bone, you know? If you find that your pup likes to play around roughly with his/her toys, try out a solid dog bone that your pet can chew on for days on end.
Catnip Scratch Pad
A scratch pad with a catnip ball toy is the perfect remedy if you find your cat scratching your furniture out. With the catnip ball attached with the scratch pad, it’ll keep your cat mesmerised and their claws off the sofa.
Bonus tip for all toys: Try not to overload your pet with too many toys as they might lose interest in them quickly. Instead, introduce one toy at a time, store it when your pet loses interest, then reintroduce it again after a while.
