Older cats have similar limitations as older dogs. Teeth become more fragile and if they have developed an illness like arthritis, they may not be as active as they once were. It is best to keep toys soft, yet stimulating and just like dogs, cats enjoy interacting with their pet parents. 


Cats of all ages love wands. This interactive robotic cat toy is made of high quality ABS material and is set to work 10 minutes every 1.5 hours so when pet parents are not at home, the toy will interact with your cat appropriately. 

Hunting Toys

Cats love mice and birds and hunting is a natural instinct even for house bound elderly pets. This value pack of catnip filled mice is great for any cat and it is filled with pure and potent catnip that is produced without chemicals or pesticides. 

Roller Ball Toys
