For those with outside cats, do they care about toys? Snowball showed incredible interest the first time I brought a wand-feather toy home; she was chasing it and jumping up to catch it. This lasted for like a month, and then she got tired of it. I got her some other toys, like a toy mouse and the cat dancer, but her level of play kinda died down. After a long time I brought out the feather toy, thinking it would be new and fresh, but after a couple of swipes she was done with it. She's otherwise healthy (already took her to the vet), and in fact has plenty of energy. She chases birds and has caught a couple of rats, and she's always running after bugs. For other exercise I take her for a walk, which she loves. I'm guessing that because she's an outside cat, she doesn't have a need for boring old cat toys, but then again she did respond very strongly to them at first. I don't think it's a big deal, and in fact I'm happy that she has so much to do in the yard, but I was just curious what your experiences have been.
