They’ve been working hard this year! Our puppers and doggos protect the home with mighty barks. Our kitties bring us special “presents.” But most importantly they make us smile, laugh, and they fill us with love all year long.
Let’s not forget to pick up a little something special from “Santa” for our four-legged friends this holiday!
Who knows better than pet people on what are the best gifts and treats? Below are 10 reasonably priced, pet-lover endorsed presents for your cherished animals.
1.) SmartyKat Hot Pursuit Electronic Concealed Motion Cat Toy
Fur Star Pet Care’s own Jeanette Hale recommends this awesome cat toy! The kitties just love this!
A toy attaches to a small motor below the fabric circle. The toy moves under the fabric but then peeks out as it moves along. This really keeps the cats interested. The blinking lights feature also adds to the entertainment.
The toy shuts off after a while to save on power and limit stimulation. Jeanette says, “Our cats love it so much, they sleep on it! Sometimes even when it’s off!”
For just $14 at Target, you can get one for your own feline.
2.) Cat Dancer 101: Cat Dancer Interactive Cat Toy
Is your cat relentlessly attacking the Christmas tree? This Cat Dancer toy may be just the diversion you need to give that tree a break!
The Cat Dancer is a very simple toy that makes for hours of fun. It’s a piece of curved wire with cardboard at either end.
One user says, “This is the cheapest, most amazing cat toy ever. Never met a cat that wouldn’t play with it for hours.”
3.) Colorful Springs Cat Toys
If you were a kid in the days before tablets and smartphones, you probably played with a Slinky or the spring stopper behind the door. Well turns out cats can pass the time playing with springy toys as well.
