Pet-safe laser toys, food puzzles, and more
No matter their age, play time is important for cats’ mental and physical stimulation.
Cat owners who want to create a happy, thriving environment for their feisty feline should consider investing in interactive toys, which can satisfy cats’ natural instincts to hunt, forage, and chase. These toys can also keep your cat active when you're not around, potentially keeping them out of trouble (like scratching furniture instead of their cat trees out of boredom).
Amazon is packed with thousands of cool cat toys. We found nine standout deals for cat parents to check out, starting at just $6.

Trixie Activity Fun Board Treat Dispenser Toy, $25
Food puzzles are a clever way to keep a cat’s mind and reflexes sharp. The Trixie Cat Activity Center has five hidden-treat challenges, and has racked up thousands of five-star ratings from shoppers.
Watch your cat try to catch, eat, and play with treats, dry food, or small toys scattered over the activity center. Clear globes appeal to your cat's digging instinct, and pegs, alleyways, and indents will encourage them to hunt. With its non-slip rubber feet, it should stay upright no matter how excited your cat gets.
“Excellent product. This is well made and all three of our cats love ‘solving’ the puzzles to get treats,” wrote one customer. They added, “It's sturdy and durable and easy to store away when not in use.”
PetSafe Bolt Automatic Laser Cat Toy, $22 (Save 19%)
This pet-safe laser toy moves in unpredictable patterns that will get your cat’s attention. It has two modes to choose from, and you can adjust the mirror to aim the laser across a variety of surfaces. With automatic mode, your cat can chase lasers hands-free for 15 minutes, and you can pick up the toy and treat it like a laser pointer in manual mode for a more hands-on approach. Whichever route you choose, your cat gets plenty of exercise, which can reduce destructive behavior.
Thousands of pet owners have praised the laser sharing that it has kept their cats “busy and happy for hours.” One shopper said the laser was “the best purchase” they’ve made on Amazon to date.
