Cat Toys & Condos

Cat Toys:

Cat toys that are a hit with our Bengals & Savannahs are mice with plastic bodies, wrapped mice, cat nip toys, ping pong balls, teaser toys on a pole, and water balls. (dollar tree – water toys for kids) NO you do not wet the water balls. The cats like the water balls because they are squishy, light, airy and go far when they hit them with their paws. Also these are key to getting your cat to play fetch with you. Small balls come 4 to a package, big balls come 2 to a package for $1 at the dollar tree. (warning…seasonal item though)

Cat Condos:

I really like cat condos  that are made of real wood, and covered with carpet. I find Molly & Friends to be great cat condos. I personally have several in our house. You can go to their website and have them shipped to you, but shipping is pricey. Or you can go to Pet Supermarket and buy them there. Sign up for Pet Supermarket coupons on their site, they also have a friends and family day, once a year if not more. This is for 15% off. 

If you are unable to get a Molly & friends cat condo get one made out of wood and carpet. They will last longest. Well worth the money…

I would have one in every room you hang out in. If you bond with your cat he/she will want to be with you. If you give kitty their own furniture you will have less damage on your human furniture. I rarely have cats on our sofas because we have a lot of cat condos around for our cats. 

Go high with several platforms too. Bengals and Savannahs like to be high. 

If you have a screened in pool or patio area, add one there if you are going to let your cat in this area. Same goes for litter box. 

The more you give to your cats the more you will see they use their things over yours.

Litter Boxes – Litter – good human habits for our cats
