I don’t know about you, but my cats are my family, and as such they deserve nice gifts for the joy they give me all year round. Now, I could go all out and spend too much money for things that they have no interest in, or I can use my imagination and a $20 bill.
First, I will start off my saying that, like children, if you put all of the new toys out to play with on Christmas morning, chances are they will become get bored with them by Christmas night. My advise is to hold back, only giving them a few toys at one time, until they get bored with them. Then, pick them up and replace them with some of the new toys that you have in reserve. That way, it’s Christmas all over again.
Some of the toys you can pick up in the local pet shop. However, they usually jack the prices sky high to cover their overhead. That being the case, the only time that I go into the pet shop is to look, not buy.
Your next option is the Internet. Now, there are a lot of places out there that charge just as much as the pet shop does, but if you scour the pet outlets on the Net, chances are you will find deals. Two stores that I shop at are, of course, Amazon, and Chewy .
Here are just a few toys that are on the cheaper side and your cat is sure to love them just as much, if not more, than the expensive play things.
You can find anything at all at Amazon.
These are great. My cats will sneak up on them, pounce and run around, holding the mouse by its tail.

Until next time, let’s play!
