Bat & Swat Cat Toys
& Swat toys do not have a human on the other end but
rely on the energy and imagination of your cat. Bat & Swat
toys are meant to be rolled, flung, bounced and chased along
the floor. They can be hard and bouncy, soft and squishy,
feathery or tough.
They come in a wide variety
of textures, shapes and colors. Different toys appeal
to different cats at different times. Even a subtle
shift of color from pink to red or black to brown can make
all the difference.
With all Bat & Swat toys try showing
your cat what it is and how to use it. Juggle it, toss it,
crinkle it, flick it, throw and roll it in front of him.
This will help differentiate between cat toy and not cat
toy. The ball is a cat toy but the handmade silk tassel on
the back of the chair is not.
If it is unclear to
your cat what is and what is not a toy then everything
interesting becomes fair play. Bat & Swat toys are meant to
add to your collection of interactive toys but are not meant
to replace them. All cats need interactive play with a human
on the other end. Nothing takes the place of a living being
Cats need variety so it is best to have a
number of items that are regularly rotated as frequently as
everyday. Place unused toys in a closet or heavy drawer that
is inaccessible to your cat. Even the best toys wear out so
toss them when they are dirty or damaged in any way.
If your cats are eaters of things that are not food
(Pica, a disorder) then see our line of Rod&Line and Wire
As with all toys, play safely and put
away all toys when not in use. Please do not eat any part
of any toy
