New Year of Gifts: Instinctive Cats

The holiday gift giving season may be near over, but your favorite feline still deserves some treats! If you happen to have a frisky, instinctive cat — or know someone that does — you can never go wrong with toys that spark playful fun and a little exercise.

I love the Fling-ama-String, a $25 battery-operated cat toy that aims to improve "paw eye coordination" and keep your cat on the move. It's essentially a long plastic tube with a string that moves up and down to tease your kitty. It hangs on a door knob, counter top or chair and will entertain your cat even when you're not around. To check out some other frisky cat toys I like,

ALSW - my cats love the cat dancer, too. We've gone through several in the 4 our so years we've had our cats. It seems to be the simplest toys that are the biggest hits.

My cats are a HUGE fan of the laser-light toy. They hear that little keychain part rattle and they come running. I am intrigued by the string toy, but I am apprehensive about it's durability. The last powered cat toy we purchased only survived about a week.

My cats LOVE LOVE LOVE this toy called the Cat Dancer. It's inexpensive and they both love it for different reasons. It wiggles and dances and Clyde loves to chase it when it's hanging and Bonnie loves it on the floor so she can chase it around. We're on our second one and may have to get another soon!

My cats are incredibly spoiled and if I'm not playing with them, they get bored. This is similar to the Panic Mouse 360, which my finicky kitties grew tired of in a day. Anything that they can sense is repetitive and fake, they don't want anything to do with. They play fetch with me, and LOVE anything on a wand. I LOVED the video, though - all those cute kitters and their paws! With that said, I'm buying one anyway. I just can't help myself.
