A cat mouse toy

makes a perfect gift for kitty

It goes without saying: A cat mouse toy makes a great gift for kitty.

Cats love playing. They particularly enjoy chasing crittersand anything that moves. Cats also love small furry things. I guess that’s their hunting instinct at play. Needless to say, cats will always welcome cat toys.

Cats love all type of cat toys: ball toys, rattles, and feathered toys, to name a few. And among kitty’s favorites are mouse toys, of course. And obviously, cat mouse toys make perfect gifts for cats (and their owners). Below you will find a guide to selecting the perfect mouse toy for your cat.

Factors to consider when shopping for mouse toys

Catnip-filled mouse toys

These toys will certainly delight any cat. They come in different sizes and styles as well. For extra fun, get a refillable mouse toy. This way you can remove the old catnip once it loses its power and replace it with fresh catnip.

More gift ideas

Revamp old toys

Does your cat have a lot of mouse toys? Is he bored with them? Revitalize them! Maybe you've heard it before: re-use, re-purpose, re-package. Here are some ideas to make the old new again:

  • Add feathers: Cats love feathers, so adding a feather or two to that old mouse toy will work wonders.

  • Sprinkle and/or rub fresh catnip on his or her old toys. The fresh scent will delight your cat and will encourage him or her to play. Kitty will love it!

  • Put the toys away for some time and reintroduce them to your cat after some time. He or she will think it’s a new toy.
