Cats love to challenge themselves and learn new things while playing. An interactive cat toy allows them to earn their treats. Entertain your cat for hours by automating the laser-pointer trick, or with a circuit that rolls around a ball, helping them practice their instincts to hunt. These are perfect for anyone who wants their cat to feel engaged but aren’t able physically to play with them anymore. You can burn off their energy with toys that appeal to their curiosity, whether they want to stalk and ambush a toy that taunts them with a feather, or a furry contraption that is meant to imitate prey.
