Our Favourite Cat Toys
For many of us, raising a new cat at home can be a challenging task.
With constant scratching, toilet training and many anxious moments, taking care of a kitten or a cat can be a daunting mission. But, when it comes to understanding your cat’s playtime needs, we think of ourselves as experts and have you covered! There is nothing better for our cats than busting hours of boredom with their favourite toy. It is also important to keep bringing in new toys to stimulate your cat into more playtimes to keep their brains working and their bodies nimble.
So, with our understanding of a cat’s desire to play and a whole host of terrific toys to choose from, we’ve decided to create a list of our top toys for your feline friends right here so you don't have to!
Why is Playtime so Important For Cats?
Throughout their lives, cats need time to play in order to improve their physical and cognitive development. Understanding what they can and can’t do with a toy helps cats develop their brain’s functionality and physicality. For our four-legged friends, playing with their favourite toy can boost mental stimulation and with a variety of toys on offer at Natural Cornish Pet, you can give your cats the chance to release those ancestral urges to pounce, play, hunt and prey on their beloved feather teaser or teddy bear.
In addition to boosting your cat’s brain function, toys can also increase the relationship between you and your feline companion, and in turn, bring you closer than ever before. Bonding is a significant part of play, as engaging with your cat this way can develop a sense of security for your cat in your presence.
Most importantly, toys can provide a source of essential exercise for your cat. Whether it’s chasing a ball, playing tug of war or solving a puzzle, their toys can provide them with hours and hours of activity, ensuring their muscular and bone health is maintained through those perfect playtimes.

For years, catnip-infused toys have been used to control behaviour, ease anxiety and create firmer and stronger bonds between felines and owners.
