Kitty Toys For Your Favourite Feline

Cat Trees

Posted by | 1 comment

A cat tree is a great toy for your cat as it serves two important functions. One is that it gives your cat something to climb and jump on, and the other is that it gives them something to sharpen their claws on instead of your nice, new sofa.

Cat Tree

A cat tree can take many forms, from a straightforward platform on a post to a ‘cat condo’ style maze of posts, platforms, boxes and ladders. The basic idea is that the cat has somewhere to jump onto, scratch and play on.

So what should you be looking for in a cat tree? Probably one of the most important hings is a nice wide base to make sure that it’s stable, otherwise when your crazy cat launches itself onto the top it’s likely to fall over. On the subject of stability, if you go for an enormous 6ft cat tree you may want to look at anchoring it to your wall, just in case it does topple over and injure you/your cat/young child/plasma-screen TV.

Some cat trees will come with toys already bolted on, but even if you get a basic tree you can just attach a spring or piece of string onto it and add a toy of your choice.

Cat Collar

Posted by | 0 comments

A cat collar is a must if you want your kitty to stand out from the crowd. Coloured, furry, diamond-encrusted – almost anything is possible. Just choose the collar that matches your cat’s character, or just get them a new one every now and then.

However, you should bear in mind that cat collars aren’t just decorative items. Your cat should wear a collar that provides some form of identification at all times, even if it’s just a name tag.

It is important that your cat’s collar is made of a stretchable material such as nylon or have some form of release mechanism or safety clasp. If your cat gets caught on something, such as a tree branch, you want to be sure that they can slip free of the collar without hurting themselves. Remember, a break away cat collar is a must.

Collars come in a range of sizes that are usually based on the size or weight of the cat. As your cat grows they will need a new collar, so keep checking to make sure it is not too tight. Ideally the collar should be slightly loose around your cat’s neck  – a good test is that you can easily slip two fingers inside the collar when it is fitted. Take care that the collar is not too loose or your cat will soon find a way to pull it off.

The Bergan Turbo Track Cat Toy is a fantastic way of keeping your cat entertained.

It’s a simple idea – take a track and drop a ball into it, and then let your cat knock the ball around the track for as long as it feels like it. The walls of the track are high enough to stop the ball getting knocked for miles with a swipe of a paw, but low enough to give kitty easy access to bash the ball backwards and forwards.

The track is made up of separate pieces that can be assembled into various layouts. If you think your cat is getting bored you can re-arrange the track to create a new layout, or even buy more pieces to extend the track.

Cat Beds

Posted by | 0 comments

Everyone needs a good bed, and cats are no different. There are a number of reasons why you should get a cat bed specifically for your furry friend and it’s not all about making them comfortable.

Cat Igloo

Cats tend to seek out warm and cosy spots, and one of the first places they will look is in your bed. While it may seem cute to share your bed with your cat it can be a problem if you have any allergy problems. It’s also not so cute when you’re woken up in the middle of the night by a strange furry lump jumping onto your stomach.

There is the problem of unwanted hair and, even worse, little visitors. While cats tend to be clean animals they will always leave fur behind wherever they sleep and over time this can accumulate into quite a pile, and no matter how careful you are about fleas there is always a chance that some might be hitching a ride on your cat. If there are any on-board when your cat sleeps on your bed the little critters may be tempted to jump off and snack on you, and then settle down in your nice warm bed. You’ll have similar problems if your cat decides to sleep on your best furniture or on your nice, clean washing.

Giving your cat a bed of its own means that it has somewhere to go to for peace and quiet and will help it feel more secure in the home. If you can find them a nice warm spot away from the hustle and bustle of the home they’ll appreciate it even more. It also means you will be able to control the cat fur and any infestation problems more easily.

If you’re thinking of a cat bed as just a circular piece of padded material, you may be surprised at just how much choice there is. For a start you can get beds with heated pads or gel padding, and these are especially good for cats with mobility problems. Other beds can be bought as part of a set of furniture which might include the bed, a scratching post and some attached toys.

A cheaper alternative to a heated bed is a ‘radiator bed’ that hangs off your radiator. This give your cat somewhere warm to sleep and a perch off the ground. The only downside to these beds is that they require a jump to get into, so if your cat is getting unsteady on their feet this might not be the best choice.

Even ‘plain’ cat beds can be quite imaginative, from just a simple cushion to mushroom-shaped houses and fur-lined igloos. You should be able to buy them in a variety of sizes and colours, from neutral shades through to wild and wacky designs.

Getting your cat a bed of their own is one of best things you can do.
