Hi guys... sounds like we have a lot of fun loving kitties around here
I used to have a cat that loved twist ties. You know, like on plastic baggies. She used to toss them with her teeth and make me fetch them for her.
Now, my cats' favorite toys seem to be my pajamas and any cardboard box.
My cat Jim only likes ONE toy. And that is a little grey mouse with a pink, blue, and yellow ribbon at the end with a bell. It comes on a "fishing" pole, but he immediately rips the mouse off the stick and he LOVES it. He even plays catch with it! He used to fetch it, but now that he's a little older he just stays in one place!
I have only found this mouse at Wal-Mart, but if they ever stop making them i'll have to make it myself!
Cuddles is an interesting girl. I have to sleep with earplugs in because hubby has sleep apnea and I cannot sleep with all the noise. If I leave them on my nightstand without putting them in a bag or case, she steals them. Once I'm asleep, she'll bring them up on the bed and want to play fetch. The thing that is totally hillarious about the whole thing is that she has this obnoxious way of meowing loudly when she has it in her mouth. Wakes us up. Another thing she does is she has these fuzzy balls and hides them in various spots in the house. She will sit and stare at me until I go find them and then she starts all over again. Too bad she can't help me hide eggs at easter! She's better at hiding things than I am. If I look while she's in the process of hiding the balls, she stops and gives me "the look."
Daphne, on the other hand will play with just about anything. From those plastic milk jug thingys to cat toys or this game she plays with her paws. Can't decribe it, but it's very funny to watch! We nicknamed her Daphne-do because she always finds something to do. She does, however have quite the fascination with my son's toy dumptruck. She waits till the kids go to bed and then paws at the truck bed to make it flip. Goofy girl!!
ZAMBIA'S FAVORITE TOY
( she has to have it with-in reach everywhere she goes)
Wat a cute topic to talk bout.. hehe Well where do I begin. My two fav felines are soo fineky wen it comes to wha kinda of kitty toys they want to play with. For all that matters they could have all the kitty toys in the world in front of them, n they might jus choose one... I tink there fav would be the lill stuffed bag wiv cat nip inside. We all know how cats go crazy over catnip. Hopefully I can download sum pictures soon n share them with all you guys havin there play time moments.
They cost less than $5 US, so if you can find one, get it. Your cat will thank you.
Katee, which one is Henry? (just joking)
henrys' toys seem to be my unmentionables......he hasnt hidden this one yet when i snapped this pic but ive found others behind the headboard more times than i can count
This is the favorite toy of panda
"super market bag" and it's must be only white color!!!
i never let her play alone with the bag.
i always keep my eyes on her. when her playing with bag.
I remeber one cat, satdown and you could watch the thought process...
He looked at the fluff on the end of the string...
Up the string, from the fluff to the stick...
Down the stick, from the string to my hand...
And attacked my hand!
(that was the end of that game)
LOL - So far the best toy I could have given my 8 month old explorer would be the Christmas Tree!! LOL - I caputured a picture of her today in her new favorite place!
Mine are like yours. They play with everything. They even stuck the remote control in my shoe. Bags and boxes are fun for them, but they like the laser pointer the best.
i loved your pics everyone.
my cats play with everything.abby likes to play with straws,cat toys.or papers on my desk.
mooly likes to play with pens.strings,or cat toys,
daze plays with anything she can find. esp yarn,cat toys,or even my eyeliner.
She looks like she is having a good time. What a beautiful girl !
Favorite things is anything covered with dust. Strange but she will go wild, just like catnip. Beside that, she likes the colored mouses. Her favs seem to be red, purple and green. She doesn't play much with the blues. Her favorite thing to do with them is rip off the tail and then the whole leather piece on it...
She has some fun with the big roaches, but then she gets tired and just watches them, when they move, she'll jump high in the air and then run behind something and watch it run away....GGGGRRRR! Because then we have to go chasing it to kill it...LOL!!! Then she'll come by and watch us sweep it up and throw it away...LOL!
Right now, Mr Atticus' and Piss Pink's favorite toy is
the crickets that are coming in right now not only because it has cooled off but because we have been having a lot of rain. these occupy both cats to the point where it is a crusade watching and waiting.
Remember before the impenetrable packages make it impossible to open? Well some things still come wrapped in old fashioned cellophane and that is number two on their list. Just crumble it up as tight as you can and throw it down. They go through many antics as it pops slowly back open. They circle it and pounce and it crackles back. It resembles a ritual dance of sorts.
The third is the round plastic thing on the floor with a mouse or plastic ball in it that runs around the plastic circle. It also has a cardboard scratching circle in it. It is pictured in one of the posts above.
These two also greatly enjoy coming with me to feed the big fat geese and watch the goosefights. Its like Saturday night out at the fights for them.
But their all time favorite toys are my toes whenever I move in bed.
My deaf kitty, Punky, loves to "fish" for things so I keep 3 old flower pots around the house. One has small pretty stones, one has sea shells and the third I dump my pennies into. She loves scooping them out and batting them around. Now if I could just get her to put her own toys away!
The other thing she loves is my wet/dry shop vac of all things. When I drag it out the other 5 cats and the dog all head for the hills but Punky crawls all over it and loves to be vacuumed.
It's weird but when I buy an expensive toy for my guys they would rather play with the box or the ties that hold it in the box.
Tippy and Harmony love Molly dogs toys...
Tippy likes Molly dogs kongs...
Harmony likes Molly dog's stuffed toys.
And of course Molly has to share her tennis balls with Harmony.
Our cats like paper bags, boxes and rubber balls. Meet our fur babies
Lucie, Louis and Luke
My kitty CC, he loves to play with just about anything its crazy. I'll buy him something and he gets more of a kick outta things not meant for kitties or just plain everyday stuff like if I leave a bottle cap, pen, anything resembling a string, or take off my rings and leave em on a table he's off with em. But bought toys, he only seems to appreciate balls with bells in them, called bizzy balls I believe I've bought so many that he can torture us with at odd hours of night and day only loving them if he has walls to bounce them off of to here the noise they make.
He looks innocent doesn't he? But he'll take anything of mine that he finds amusing play with it, then hide it, then I'm lost where its gone till I figure out he was the culprit
Awww, he is so cute,
Phoenix & Addie come running when you wad up a piece of paper (Phoenix will bring the paper back to you), Haley loves ice cubes, Ginger loves to play with bottle caps of 2 liter soda bottles, Toby loves toilet paper, he'll lick it a few times then roll around in it, then he's done ( we nicknamed him Toilet paper Toby) Pooh loves my pony tail holders, the rest don't really have a favorite.
They all fight over paper bags & boxes, now Addie & Halee we call our water bugs, we'll squirt them with water from the downstairs hose and these 2 go nuts playing in the water.
My cat Annie loved pipe cleaners too, but I had to take them away from her because they became so sharp. I replaced it with a lazer.
IttyBitty loves those crinkley metalic balls and mice I pick up at the store. Her favorite trick is to play with them outside my bedroom door when I am trying to sleep. If she doesn't get my attention that way she brings them up on the bed! She used to carry off my ear rings to play with if I left them out.
Kaz brings me socks from upstairs and always expects much praise and strokes for doing this chore. -At least it isn't underwear! I had a friend whose cat brought a pair of underwear downstairs when she had company!
My cats love all kinds of things! First pipe cleaners, they love them! I can't keep enough around!. Halla has 2 stuffed animals Audrey &Smokey. But I think the weirdest toy would be Cario's love of Dolls. I am a Doll Artist and I re-root CPK's. Well Cario has fallen in love with a Corn silk doll. We named her Headra!, and he kisses her and loves her. He drags this poor thing around and drools all over it!
Cody loves to bring me things! Mostly socks and face cloths. He works hard everyday bring me Daddy's old work socks! Then we have to tell him thank you! He is so happy when I tell him thanks!
My Sweet Pea loves batting around a beer bottle cap. They slide along the carpet nicely, and she can chase one all afternoon.
Pippin's favorite toy is Cleo. When he can't get her, his favorite is anything he's not supposed to have. He LOVES wadded up paper and he has two plastic balls that he plays with in the bathtub. Make sure you watch your step if you come over! pippin also like to play with the dog, Rosie.
Your pics are all really cute!! Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of my boy (Horrace) playing with his toys.
He has a couple of fav toys/games. His fav game is fetch. He has this butterfly with some ribbon on it, and I throw it down the hallway and he chases after it and brings it back to me. When I ignore him he keeps tapping my foot until I re-throw it for him. Another of his fav games is 'wake Olivia up by running along the bed-head and bomb diving onto her head' - not the best way to wake up in the morning! haha! His fav toy is probably the two dogs, who he leaps on their backs and rides them around the room (they are only slightly bigger than he is!).
We have hardwood floors though and I have no idea where it ended up. My husband probably got it since he hates stepping on toys in the middle of the night! The little furry mice that rattle are by and large their favorite! Ruth always puts them under the furniture though and I have to get a coat hanger to get them back out. My husband just laughs since Ruth trys to help. I will be down on all fours with a flashlight in one hand and a coat hanger in the other. Then Ruth with get between me and the piece of furniture. As soon as I do manage to get it out she grabs it and off it goes under another!
My cat ~ Clancy ~ loves the little white Ping Pong balls ~ she loves to take them to the top of the stair case around 2am and let them ping pong all the way down and them she runs down and gets it again and does it over and over ~ sometimes we have to get up and take the balls untill morning so we can get some sleep L.O.L.
Samantha and Clancy!
Cute pictures everyone.
Qtips are a favorite of most cats, and mine will seek them out to bite the heads off of.
My cats chew pieces out of card board boxes and spit them all over the place. I do have a problem keeping plastic away from Spit fire. She found some crackers that were indivually wrapped this morning, and when Jimmy saw her she had about an inch of plastic showing out of her mouth, and when he pulled it out there was another few inches that came out. It is a never ending battle.
Littlebit's favorite toy is little bity stuffed animals, about the size of week old kittens.
We have 4 cats so I am not for sure on this, but I think Ruth likes q-tips too. I keep finding them out of the trash but nearby.
Kujo and Kiara love a ball of feathers on a string. It doesnt matter where they are in the house when they hear the plastic stick it is attached to they come running. I had to use it one night at 4:00 in the morning to get them out of the air ducts under the floor. Kiara had figured out how to pull the vents out of the floor and they were both walking around down there. The only way I found out what they had done was the floor by the bed was making loud thumping noises. So I went and got their toy and they came right out.
They all love those little fake mice. My new kittens have claimed those and run around the house grawling at one another over them. This is tigger when he is all wound up. For some reason he likes to kick himself in the face Songa and Rajiah fighting over the mouse
When Kujo and Kiara are feeling better I will post some pictures of them too.
Another favorite toy is the dog!!
Awww, that is so cute!!
Those pictures are a little old. I've gotten Alex (my kitty) a much larger, much more expensive ($150) Cat Condo since then. I did a google search for a picture of it to post here but can't seem to find one... I'll post a photo as soon as I get a chance to take one.
The little Cat Condo in the above pictures has since been donated to my local Humane Society.
TOMACINA LOVES TO PLAY WITH FURDADDYS SLIPPERS.
RICHARD AND TOMACINA
As of late Cliffers favorite pastime is to transfer the dogs kibble into the water dish...then sit by and groom himself as the dog growls and barks at his now soggy and floating food!!
He is also fond of a flipflop I have that has a 'flower' on top the little piece that goes between your toes. He grooms and pounces it and drags it around. Or if I'm walking he attacks my feet to get his beloved flower.
My Kisa's favorite toys are measuring spoons! She is alittle thief and thinks everything she can carry is her "treasure" lol So one day she stole one little measuring spoon and just loves it. I have no clue what the appeal is, as it is just a spoon and since the handle is flat if it laying flat on the ground she has so much trouble trying to pick it up lol.
She ended up stealing a second spoon now too so I just gave them to her and they have become her very favorite toys lol
They love balls but tend to lose them lol and the little mice they just can't get enough of. Even though Kisa will give the furry ones a bath lol
I also bought this neat toy, it is a plastic stick with a long fabric "string" and the end of the fabric has feathers. They love that! But the feathers get pulled off with how crazy they go lol.
I have to keep all plastic bags put away. My cats have got their heads caught in the handles and run terrified all over the house. I am so afraid they will get hurt this way. I also worry that they might get caught up in one and not be able to breath. -Probably wouldn't happen, but I feel safer keeping them put up.
Bitty brought a straw to bed last night. She was having a grand time batting it all over...I just wanted to get some sleep!
Our bath tub stopper has been taken away many times, but so far we have been able to find it, plus the sink stopper.
Rachael, string cost me 400.00 at the vets, and would have been more but she was let out a couple of days earlier. It went down her throat, into her stomach and intestines too, and lucky to be alive. It was like a very strong thread actually, so I am very careful now about threads hanging from something.
Also, cats are attracted to the plastic bags from the stores, and I have cats that will eat them. They are very dangerous.... Please get rid of or hide them.
Mr Atticus' favorite tay is a paper sack. He also likes empty boxes.
Miss Pink's favorite toy is her bed. She is a slug.
Shannon....my kitties do the same thing!
They also like the drain stopper for the tub! You can never find it when you want to take a bath!
I so love that photo
The toy of the moment here (I rotate toys so they don't get bored) is the cat tunnel. They just love it. Even Saki, who likes to pretend he is above such kittenish things, had a go - in a very dignified way Minky played so much that eventually he just rolled over on his back in the tunnel to rest and completely blocked one end Golden opportunity for Bumbles, who has become very tired with Minky tigging his tail - so he went and tigged Minky's tummy which was conveniently available through one of the holes in the top of the tunnel.
Hi all! You know those covers that go over the bolts on the bottom of your toilet? Well, we got a new toilet, and before we got the covers on, they went missing. How mysterious!!! Then one night, they reappeared in the paws of my one cat, Catso. She loves playing with them! So, we had to get new ones for our toilet, so that the cat could keep her toys....lol.
Kate, I hide all the rubber bands from mine because I am afraid they will swallow them. Mine put everything in their mouth.
Just had to post this picture..Moto's Favorite Toys..
I didn't remove the old favorite toys thread. I changed it to a blue pin and closed it as there were more than 300 posts on it. You can still look at it though.
Place you kitty's favorite toys here where everyone can check out .
Mine loves the laser pointer first, and empty boxes run second. Be careful not to shine the laser pointer beam into their eyes though in case you buy one.
