They LOVE these, and the yellow banana by the same company.

Re: Entertaining cats ?

With my cats it’s not so much the toy itself that they want, but the interaction with me.  If I’m not attached to the other end of a toy, they’re not interested.  They won’t play with anything by themselves, moving or not.  (The only exception to this is a favorite pipe cleaner one has that he will bat and carry when he gets in “cat crazy” mode.)  

 

I have cat toys, but as often as not—much like kids—they prefer boxes, bottle caps, or scraps of paper.  Or, nothing.  I can put my hand under a blanket and move it around, and they pounce.

Re: Entertaining cats ?

I have had a steady stream of beloved kitties since 1986. The one tried and true toy is a yard stick with string attached to one end. My 1 yr old to 15 yr old will play with that string all day if I was up to them. They all LOVE chasing it and capturing it.I don't put a knot in the end so I can safely withdraw it from their paws and teeth. No yanking,just a gentle retraction. I ask them if they want to go cat fishing and they all get excited when they see it coming. I get bored with it before they do LOL

Thank you for suggesting this toy @lolakimono .  Henry loves his Tower of Tracks, so I think he'll like this, too.  I just ordered it for him from Amazon.

Hi @NickNack 

Does Sweet Henry also "cackle talk" to the birds & squirrels?  It's quite comicaL.

 

When my 2 were younger, they talked to them all of the time.  Recently 1 of them did & I was surprised to hear it because it's been awhile.


 

@ScenicMaine : 

Like these Maine Coon cuties chattering?
