I would be sure to keep shoe strings away from your sweet little furbaby unless they're attached to a stick or something (like a feather toy) and you're supervising. I've seen several kitties wind up with GI problems after ingesting shoe strings/etc and have to have blockages removed (i'm a vet tech).
A few of my kitties favorite toys are: sparkly pom balls, da bird - feather toy(supervised only- otherwise they'll rip the feathers off and eat the string lol.), kitty lure from PBT, yeowwwww catnip banana,kurli q's (oh kojak LOVES those!), fluffy toy mice, things like that! they love the laser pointer too!
This is the absolute favorite in our house - the kitty lure!-if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, Kojak is playing with his toy
mine also LOVE:
(please note this toy was the Australian Shepherd's favorite toy as well until they killed it
these were a big hit around here- they're durable, and they're inexpensive!http://catniptoys.com/Merchant2/merc...tegory_Code=T1http://catniptoys.com/Merchant2/merc...tegory_Code=B1
We LOVE Plain Brown Tabby! Pat(Pat&Alex) is soo sweet- she helped me figure out which toys my cats might like before i placed my first order! The prices are good, the service is outstanding, the kitties love their stuff, and i loved how fast my order arrived!!!! (i swear the had my order here in no time!!!)
