There’s nothing cuter than when your cat plays like they did when they were a kitten. But if your cat is picky, you may have found yourself on a seemingly endless quest to find a toy she actually wants to play with.
The Dodo rounded up the top highly-rated cat toys on Amazon Prime to bring that quest to an end. Cat parents are raving about all the toys listed below, with some reporting in their five-star reviews that these toys make even the least playful cats jump, bite, kick, and have a total blast.
All the Cat Dancer 101 is is a piece of wire and some rolled cardboard. Yup, that’s it. That’s all it takes to make your cat go absolutely wild. Over 15,700 cat parents swear by this toy, with one parent calling it “cat crack.” “The more expensive toys may as well be nonexistent compared to the springy wires with cardboard thingys on the ends,” they wrote. “I have to hide them … on top of the fridge, under the pillows, under the couch.”
In most cats’ opinion, the simpler the object, the better the toy. That’s why over 11,500 cat parents say the SPOT plastic spring is their cat’s favorite plaything. “They’re so light, springy and the best part is they’re QUIET, so no annoying jingle bell to hear,” one five-star reviewer wrote of the toy. “I’ve never seen a cat LOVE a toy so much.”
The OurPets catnip toys come in several fun shapes like a chili pepper, carrot, and cactus, all of which are filled with 100 percent North American-grown catnip. As one five-star cat parent wrote, the thing is filled with what can only be described as “dark magic.” “Got my [catnip] carrot and with not much hope threw it on the floor. MAGIC exploded immediately,” they wrote. “[My] cat went NUTS … kicks, licks, snouts, breaths, drools and more kicks. For THREE HOURS.”
