Should Cats Get Christmas Gifts too?

Did Santa Bring Something for Kitty too?

I'm waiting,...for my present!!

I'm waiting momy...for my present!!

“While all of us humans are getting fancy gifts, parcels and boxes, kitty feels totally left out on the side.

Hasn’t she been good? Doesn’t she also deserve a Christmas present from Santa? All the colors and things excite kitty and yet no one pays her any attention. She crawls under the christmas tree and paws at a red crystal ball hanging from the tree. It looks so pretty! Suddenly, a human voice shouts at her to “Get out of there! You’re ruining the Christmas tree!!”
Frightened kitty crawls out again and sits on the side again.

She watches as everyone starts to unpack the Christmas presents, tearing their raping off and laughing and smiling as they do so. Kitty sighs and lies down on the floor.

I wantz also a gift from zanta!

I wantz also a gift from santa!

Why nothing for her? Just as she is about to go to sleep, a parcel is placed down infront of her nose.

Kitty opens up her eyes again and looks interestedly at it.

She stretches, yawns and then gets up.

She sniffs at it the box and tries to bites at the thing.

Kitty pulls at a string that is hanging down from it and heyho! the box opens up!
Kitty opens wide eyes at what things she sees inside of it!!

What wonderful treats are lying there, what toys, what cuddly beds!
Happyness fills kitty and she jumps forwards onto the mice and snaps up the treats! Santa DID remember her after all! A few minutes later, mice are flying around the christmas tree, people are smiling and holding up what they got with a pleased grin, and in behind all, on a cozy soft bed, with mice lying all around her and cat treats in her belly, lies the happiest little cat in the world, smiling from ear to ear!”

That was a nice little story wasn’t it? But what about making it into reality this christmas, for YOUR cat? Imagine how she will happy and purr when you give her all those lovely cat toys and cat treats for christmas!

Choosing Cat Toys For Your Cat

Choosing Cat Toys For Your Cat
Ken Charnly asked:

In the next few paragraphs, we will explore new ideas and thoughts that may help you achieve your goal and decide what is best for you when choosing toys for your cats.

Toys for girl cats and boys:

When the mouse is away, cats play. And cats have the tendency to both play hard and play soft. Toys are to cats the same as toys are to dogs. It helps fight the boredom experienced by these pets as well as gives our feline friends the opportunity to practice and use their natural inclination to chase and hunt for prey. It also gives the cat owner that great chance to play with their pets, an experience that will aid in bonding their relationship.

But what toys are best for cats? The following are tips and helpful advice to get that perfect toy for the cat owners perfect pets.

Play safe:

The good thing about cats is that they can play ball inside the house and the owners will never know it. Still, there may be things inside the house that cats could find attractive yet might actually endanger their health and safety. Houses must be cat-friendly. As much as possible, take away any string, yarn, needles, rubber bands or other objects that could easily be swallowed by cats. These things could be lethal to cats. Do not let them play with these articles no matter how cute they may appear to be.

Play soft:

Choose soft toys that can easily be machine-washed. It is best that the toys chosen to be played with by cats are also the toys marked as safe to be played with by children below three years old. Toys such as these usually contain fillings that are not hazardous. Also, avoid giving cats toys that are hard and rigid, these types do not appeal to them that much.

Know your cat, know their toy:

It is best that one also familiarize themselves with your cat. Doing so helps in ones selection of the kind of plaything that best serves the size of ones cat – the kind of activity the cat likes and its unique preferences. Know the environment in which the cat likes to spend its time the most.

Choose active toys:

Toys that are great to play with for cats are usually the round plastic ones (such as rings from shower curtains, plastic balls, golf balls, balls used in ping-pong) as these give cats the opportunity to chase and paw around. They could also carry these in their mouths, make sure though that these are big enough they cannot be swallowed but not so large that they cannot carry them in their mouths.

Choose active play:

Balls can be placed inside bath tubs filled with water. Watch as cats frolic and play on and around the toy. It is just as enjoyable to the cat as it is fun for the cat owner. Another added feature that could be placed on balls are bells. One not only sees how cats play, one could also listen and take pleasure in the playful sound . Another simple yet effective plaything for cats is a paper bag. Use paper bags that do not have handles. These bags are good for pouncing around. Cats hide in them too. As much as possible, avoid the plastic ones as cats have the tendency to chew these and they may eat the plastic. This is not good.

Toys with tails:

Cats like playing with soft toy animals – specially the ones that have tails. They either bite them, paw them or chase these little stuffed toys around. It is best if these toys are as big or as small as the cats playing them.

Toys with catnip:

Catnip is sometimes used as stuffing for toys that are soft. Putting catnip in such playthings make the toys more enjoyable to carry, kick and throw around. More importantly, it is safe for cats to chew on, roll around in, or eat.

It is okay for owners to place catnip on carpeted floors, or (to make clean-up easy) on towels. There are now catnip oils that can be placed on carpets, and they usually stay there. Cats detect these too. Although small cats, specifically kittens who are younger than six months have shown a certain kind of immunity to catnip.

All in all, it is best that cat owners define what kind of toy should be played by their cats. It is advisable that different kinds of toys be given on certain days, and that displaying all toys simultaneously may not be a good idea. Cats can easily tire of seeing the same fluffy toy animal again and again. Variety always works best.

However if cats show a certain liking to a specific toy, let them play with it, or sleep with it – whichever they like. In closing, it will benefit you to seek out other resources on this topic if you feel that you don’t yet have a firm understanding of the subject matter.
