I have gone through some cat wands, let me tell you. Inevitably, I spend between thirty and fifty dollars on my cat every holiday season buying them new treats and seasonally-appropriate cat toys. Nothing says Halloween like batting around a crinkly bat, right? And then they find the one zip tie I didn't pick up and that is the real hit, ain't it the truth?
Anyways, I want to discuss toys that worked for your cats. My cats are all about the laser pointer and mylar balls, bit their favorite toys are wands!
also anything that makes noise. we have a lot of little balls with bells in them. and we recently bought this little mouse that squeaks when the cat paws at it, and our kitten gomez is obsessed with it.
i don't really bother with buying the wand toys, i just use ribbon.
but their absolute favorite toy ever is... an empty box. hahaha *shakes head* silly cats.

The box is the greatest invention of all time for my cats, too.
We have a mouse like that. It's on a string and makes the most obnoxious sound ever. O_O

Twist ties off of bread. Or electrical cords of some sort.
They have about 300 dollars worth of toys, don't really care about them. Just the twist ties.

My cats have an assortment of ribbon and rope (from an old scratch post), jingly balls, fuzzy balls, toys made of catnip, wands etc.....But I leave one grocery bag unattended while putting food away and she is wearing it as a cape.
And for some reason my hat-scarf has been a really big hit, it makes one of them go primal instincts on it. I'll be sitting on the couch wearing it, next thing you know I have a cat gnawing and huffing in my ear.
my cat is too old and lazy for toys anymore. he enjoys the laser pointer from time to time... our vet recommended it to us to get him moving and he literally will just stare at it, and if it gets close enough he'll try to eat it.
when he was a baby he really enjoyed wand toys with feathers and ribbons and shiny things though.
