Indoor cats may be safe and sound at home but they can get bored too sometimes. One way to keep them happy and healthy is to provide them with a stimulating environment and toys to engage in and play with. You can give them scratching posts, balls, and of course, some feathered cat toys.
Feathered toys can come in different forms. Some are attached to a wand that you can use to tease your cats and have them chase the ‘prey’ all over the room. This will create a great bonding moment between you and your pet. Some feathered toys are battery-operated and your pet can have fun swatting and batting the feathers even when you’re out for work or have a quick run for the groceries. If you’re looking for affordable options, there are also packs of balls available with attached feathers so your pets can roll and chase the balls all they want, without breaking the bank.
