Our companion animals are part of our family, and we want to keep them happy, healthy, and active. Here are 13 toys, gadgets, and gimmicks that can help you accomplish this mission, and there’s something to fit every budget!

1. Catnip Cyclone Cat Toy

Cylone Cat Toy

I thought this toy was great until I discovered its secret weapon—and decided it was really great. When the ball is batted around, the catnip in the center gives off its tantalizing aroma.

2. Veggie-Shaped Cat Toys (Made With Organic Catnip)

Catnip toys

These are a serious must-have for cat and human entertainment alike.

3. Laser Pointer

We still love the classic laser pointer. As they say, “If it ain’t broke ….”

4. Cat Grass

Cat Grass

It may help your cat’s digestion—and it looks pretty, too!

5. DIY Toilet Paper Roll Rings

B with toy

This toy is free and it takes only about a minute to make. Simply cut the toilet paper roll into multiple rings, and your cat will get to batting them around in no time.

6. The Refined Feline Cat Cloud Cat Shelves

Cat Shelf

By installing this two-tiered shelf on the wall, you’ll be enabling your cat(s) to lounge in high places, which boosts their confidence and makes them feel safe. The shelves’ padding is magnetically attached and can be easily replaced. Oh, and they look better than cat trees.

7. SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post

Cat Scratching Post

I see this as the perfect complement to the above shelves, because a cat tree serves a dual purpose: as a scratcher and a perch. If you invest in the shelves and a good scratching post, that would look a lot better than a huge cat tree.

8. Fresh Breath Mint Stick

Fresh Breath Cat

Cats aren’t notorious for their bad breath, but if they have even a hint of it, this minty toy will freshen it up. It helps keep their teeth clean, too.

9. Cat’s Meow Undercover Mouse Exercise Toy

Cats Meow Toy

I always love moving my hand around under the covers and watching my cat chase it. This toy uses the same concept, and my friend tells me her cat absolutely loves it!

10. SmartScoop Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter Box

Self-Cleaning Litterbox

A self-cleaning litterbox? Now, that’s what I’ve been waiting for! Hooray!

11. YouTube

I love easy answers to big questions, such as “How do I entertain my cat when I’m away from home?” Well, if you search for “cat entertainment” on YouTube, you’ll find lots of videos of birds and other creatures to help you solve this puzzler.

12. Pioneer Pet Stainless Steel Fountain

Cat FountainIf you don’t already have a water fountain for your cat, you need to drop what you’re doing and get one! Running water makes drinking more appealing to kitties, and we know how important water is to their general health and to their kidneys in particular.

13. Cat Amazing Treat Maze & Puzzle Game

Cat puzzle

Food puzzles stimulate cats mentally and physically while feeding them at the same time. Look at how these cats dig it!
