The 5 Best Cat Toys on is a popular and trusted site to do online shopping. I personally love them and do as much shopping as possible there. Today, I wanted to take a look at the toys for cats they are offering.

General Toys for Cats

There are innumerous toys available for our favourite feline friends that range from balls to rodents to towering cat condos. These toys can range from a simple and very inexpensive string to the most elaborate of cat towers that are more accurately described as cat palaces instead.

Now let’s look at some specific toys! The prices were consulted on March 10, 2012 and are subject to change, but you can get a general ballpark range of prices.

Go Pet Club Cat Tree (50W x 26L x 72H, Beige) – $85.00

Talk about a luxury cat condo! I mean this is the perfect gift for a multiple cat home. It provides places to climb and hide from each other and even a mouse hanging on a string. This cat tower will definitely get your cat off their butt and exercising. It also comes in a nice neutral beige colour that will most likely avoid clashing with your own furniture.

Cat Dancer 101 Cat Dancer Interactive Cat Toy – $3.01

A simple combination of steel wire and rolled cardboard, this toy offers a secret and added benefit…well, okay not so secret…it gives you quality time with your kitty. Because it is metal, care should be taken. Do not leave the cat unsupervised with the toy and do not leave it out over night.

Panic Mouse 360 – $29.95

This is the battery operated version of toy mice for cats. It is basically a mouse hanging on a wand that is connected to a motor. The motor will jerk the mouse around in unpredictable movements causing the cat to go bonkers.

GoPetClub ‘Huge’ Jungle GYM Cat Tree Furniture Condo Bed House Pet Scratcher Post FC06 – $219.99

This is what I was referring to when I said that there were cat palaces out there. This monster is 90 inches wide, 20 inches long and 92 inches to 108 inches high. It has 2 baskets, numerous beds, 2 ladders, 3 ropes, 24 posts and a hanging toy. It is covered in places with faux fur and other places with board material or pressed wood. What cat wouldn’t enjoy this toy?

Booda Terry Catnip Cat Toy – Small – Multicolor – $2.20

This is a small terry cloth toy stuffed with catnip. I can testify with personal experience that cats LOVE catnip. This toy should provide hours of inexpensive fun for cats. At 1.6 ounches, they will be able to really throw this toy around.

Final Thoughts

Cats are getting more and more sedentary as they grow older. They are developing the unhealthy tendency for gaining weight. More and more veterinarians are advising that cats should be fed light diets and that they need more exercise. These are some of the best cat toys to get your cats off their butts and moving!
