10 Cat Toys to Make Your Cat Love You So Much

10 Cat Toys to Make Your Cat Love You So Much

Our feline friends have a reputation for being aloof, but the cat people out there know that cats have a complex inner world. It’s a common misconception that cats don’t need love and attention.[1]

It’s true that cats sleep about 16 hours per day, but when they’re awake they need plenty of mental stimulation.[2] Bored cats find ways to entertain themselves with or without your help, and despite their small size, they can be quite destructive. The issue is aggravated if you have to be away from home for long periods of time, or you’re too busy to play with your feline friend.

At Lifehack, we know all about what it means to be busy people who love cats. We’ve handpicked 10 awesome cat toys and products to keep your feline entertained when it’s awake and pampered when it’s asleep.

1. Petcube Play: Interact with your cat even when you’re away

    Amazon customer rating: 3.9 out of 5 stars (546 reviews)

    Best for: busy owners, playful cats

    If you’ve ever wondered what your cat does when you aren’t home, the Petcube Play provides you the opportunity to find out. It not only enables you to see and hear your cat, but you’ll also be able to play with it.

    The Petcube Play connects to your smart phone via an app. You can talk to your cat throughout the day, and if you see that your kitty is bored, you can control the built-in laser toy from your phone.

      Amazon customer rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (11 reviews)

      Best for: playful cats, felines who grow bored of their cat toys easily, busy owners

      Some cats seem to get into almost everything. They’re hopping on the counters, knocking over the trash can, or stomping on your keyboard while you’re trying to work. Cats who are energetic and easily bored need to have lots of play options in order to stay out of trouble.

      The WANTi has six different play modes, which gives you the freedom to vary your cat’s play routine every day. Each mode (ball tracking, spinning, batting, slithering, remote control, and wiggling) consists of a different attachment and style of motion.

        These cat toys are perfect if you need to keep your cat occupied for a few minutes. The WANTi can be set to run for 10 minutes, which is a healthy amount of time for burning off excess play energy. You can set it and forget it, or you can use the cute paw-shaped remote control to shape the movement from the comfort of your chair.

        3. Interactive Cat Tunnel Toy: A brain game and a hunter’s hideout

          Amazon customer rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars (298 reviews)

          Best for: people in small living spaces, cats who love brain games, cats who love agility exercises

          Cats like the security of an enclosed space, they love sneaking up on prey, and they loathe being bored. The Easyology Pets Cat Tunnel satisfies all of these needs.

          Your cat may get a mental workout figuring out the best way to crawl through this tunnel, but you can up the ante by attaching several of these tunnels together to form a maze. The tunnel material is durable enough to withstand sharp claws, and it’s easy to store if you need to clear your space.

          Interactive Cat Tunnel Toy- Best for Playful Cats And Kittens – Fun Cat Hideaway with Tunnel Attachments- SOFT and 100% Pet Friendly – Extra Large Pet Tunnel, $15.97 (originally $29.99)

          4. Satisfy Prey-Drive: SmartyKat Skitter Critters Cat Toys Catnip Mice

            Amazon customer rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (1,423 reviews)

            Best for: cats who like to hunt, catnip fans, environmentally conscious owners

            Your cat needs to hunt, and while it may think it’s doing you a favor by leaving a mouse corpse on your doorstep, you may not always appreciate the gesture. Skitter Critters by SmartyKat are the perfect size and shape for simulating the hunt. Cats love batting these around the house, carrying them in their mouths, and (if they’re generous) depositing them somewhere where you’ll see their gift.

            While not all cats love catnip, those that do will experience 10-15 minutes of rambunctiousness followed by the need for a nice long nap. Environmentally conscientious owners should know that these cat toys are filled with stuffing made of 100% recycled plastic.

              Best for: cats of all sizes and ages, chronic cat-napping, sneak attacks, and environmentally-conscious consumers

              We know that our cats spend most of their time asleep. They’ll curl up in any old cardboard box, but this Cat Bed Cave by Meowfia seems much more comfortable. Whether your cat is an energetic kitten or a senior citizen, they could make use of this cat bed.

              I love the idea of a cat cave because it satisfies our felines’ instinct to find a secure place to rest. This bed works well for sleepy cats, but it’s also a great hiding spot during play. The Merino wool is an eco-friendly alternative to chemical-soaked synthetics. It is easy to clean and cozy.

              Meowfia Premium Cat Bed Cave (Large) – Eco Friendly 100% Merino Wool Beds for Cats and Kittens, $54.99 (originally $79.95)

              6. Keep a Strict Feeding Schedule with the Feed and Go Automatic Pet Feeder with Built In Webcam and Wi-Fi

                Amazon customer rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (235 reviews)

                Best for: busy pet owners, cats who need several meals throughout the day, cats with special dietary considerations

                When you work long days, it can be tough to keep your cat on a good feeding schedule. Free-choice feeding can lead cats to become obese because they’ll overeat, and it can make it tough to see if they have a good appetite.

                Feed and Go’s Automatic Pet Feeder allows you to dispense meals, medicines, and snacks from afar. The dish connects to Wi-Fi, and it allows you to monitor your pet from a built in camera using your smart phone. There are six compartments in the feeder, and you can set the food to disburse on a schedule.

                This feeder could also be helpful if your cat has an illness which requires you to feed it multiple times per day.

                Feed and Go Automatic Pet Feeder with Built In Webcam and Wi-Fi, 18 L x 16 W x 3 H-Inch, $187.49 (originally $199)

                7. Armarkat Cat-Tree Furniture Condo: Plenty of places to perch and scratch

                  Best for: felines of any size and age, cats who love to sit up high, cats who love to scratch things, decor-conscious owners

                  Some cats love to climb, and when they don’t have an appropriate place to do this, they can get into trouble. At 52 inches high, the Armarkat Cat-Tree Furniture Condo gives cats a great place to perch, scratch and hide.

                  The soft faux fur on the the platforms and the sisal on the posts gives cats a place to relax and satisfy their urge to scratch. Many people are reluctant to spring for a kitty condo because they are worried about sturdiness. One customer addresses this kitty condo’s stability:

                  My 26 pound Maine Coon/Bengal mix LOVES this. I was nervous to buy at first, because of the sheer weight of my big boy. Not only does he love this tree, he never has any issues ever with his weight on it. I think he may actually like me more because of this cat tree.

                  In addition to providing a variety of scratching and sleeping options, we like this Cat-tree because it looks nice. Some cat furniture can clash with your decor, but this one looks sleek. It’ll serve it’s purpose without dominating the room.

                  Armarkat Cat tree Furniture Condo, Height -50-Inch to 60-Inch, $52.52

                  8. Channel Their Destructive Habits: Bergan Turbo-Scratcher Cat Toy

                    Amazon customer rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars (5,741 reviews)

                    Best for: cats who love to scratch, cats who love to chase cat toys, owners who want a cost-effective way to manage an unwanted behavior

                    Scratching is a natural feline urge that tends to get them in trouble. Bergan’s Turbo Scratcher keeps cats entertained and offers them a place that they can claw to their heart’s content.

                    The 16″plastic base has a replaceable corrugated cardboard scratch pad at its center. The outer ring of the base is a channel where you can place a small ball. Cats love nudging their toys around in the ring or pouncing from the scratch pad.

                    This is such a simple and cost effective tool for keeping cats from tearing up your furniture. The replaceable centers, which are much cheaper than a new sofa, enable you to give your cat a satisfying scratching surface without having to invest in a whole new scratcher every time they wear out their old one.

                      This model is slim and sleek, which means it’s less likely to take over your space than some cat trees. The neutral colors and soft carpet make this an unobtrusive addition to a cat-lovers home. This is a safe alternative to climbing your curtains.

                      Cat Craft 124003 3-Tier Cat Climbing Tree, $39.02

                        Stepping on cat toys in the middle of the night can be almost as thrilling as stepping on wayward LEGOs. Ouch! The Tower of Tracks by Petstages allows pet owners to contain the fun while still giving cats a chance to work their brains.

                        This tower comes with three different types of balls which stay secure in their tracks. Cats love batting and chasing the balls around the tower, and this model is big enough to support more than one kitty’s urge to play.

                        Why You’re Feeling Tired All the Time (And What to Do About It)

                        Why You’re Feeling Tired All the Time (And What to Do About It)

                        Feeling tired all the time?

                        Have you ever caught yourself nodding off when you’re watching TV, listening to someone drone on during a meeting or even driving a car?

                        I know I have, especially when I worked 70 hours per week as a High-Tech Executive.

                        Feeling tired all the time may be more widespread than you think. In fact, two-fifths of Americans are tired most of the week.[1]

                        If you’re tired of feeling tired, then I’ve got some great news for you. New research is helping us gain critical insights into the underlying causes of feeling tired all the time.

                        In this article, we’ll discuss the latest reasons why you’re feeling tired all the time and practical steps you can take to finally get to the bottom of your fatigue and feel rested.

                        What Happens When You’re Too Tired

                        If you sleep just two hours less than the normal eight hours, you could be as impaired as someone who has consumed up to three beers.[2] And you’ve probably experienced the impact yourself.

                        Here are some common examples of what happens when you’re feeling tired:[3]

                        • You may have trouble focusing because memory and learning functions may be impaired within your brain.
                        • You may experience mood swings and an inability to differentiate between what’s important and what’s not because your brain’s neurotransmitters are misfiring.
                        • You may get dark circles under your eyes and/or your skin make look dull and lackluster in the short term and over time your skin may get wrinkles and show signs of aging because your body didn’t have time to remove toxins during sleep.
                        • You may find it more difficult to exercise or to perform any type of athletic activity.
                        • Your immune system may weaken causing you to pick up infections more easily.
                        • You may overeat because not getting enough sleep activates the body’s endocannabinoids even when you’re not hungry.
                        • Your metabolism slows down so what you eat is more likely to be stored as belly fat.

                        Are you saying that feeling tired can make me overweight?

                        Unfortunately, yes!

                        Feeling tired all the time can cause you to put on the pounds especially around your waist. But it is a classic chicken and egg situation, too.

                        Heavier people are more likely to feel fatigued during the day than lighter ones. And that’s even true for overweight people who don’t have sleep apnea (source: National Institutes of Health).

                        Speaking of sleep apnea, you may be wondering if that or something else is causing you to feel tired all the time.

                        Why Are you Feeling Tired All the Time?

                        Leading experts are starting to recognize that there are three primary reasons people feel tired on a regular basis: sleep deprivation, fatigue and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

                        Here’s a quick overview of each root cause of feeling tired all of the time:

                        1. Tiredness occurs from sleep deprivation when you don’t get high-quality sleep consistently. It typically can be solved by changing your routine and getting enough deep restorative sleep.
                        2. Fatigue occurs from prolonged sleeplessness which could be triggered by numerous issues such as mental health issues, long-term illness, fibromyalgia, obesity, sleep apnea or stress. It typically can be improved by changing your lifestyle and using sleep aids or treatments, if recommended by your physician.
                        3. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a medical condition also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis that occurs from persistent exhaustion that doesn’t go away with sleep.

                        The exact cause of CFS is not known, but it may be due to problems with the immune system, a bacterial infection, a hormone imbalance or emotional trauma.

                        It typically involves working with a doctor to rule out other illnesses before diagnosing and treating CFS.[4]

                        Always consult a physician to get a personal diagnosis about why you are feeling tired, especially if it is a severe condition.

                        Feeling Tired vs Being Fatigued

                        If lack of quality sleep doesn’t seem to be the root cause for you, then it’s time to explore fatigue as the reason you are frequently feeling tired.

                        Advertising

                        Until recently, tiredness and fatigue were thought to be interchangeable. Leading experts now realize that tiredness and fatigue are different.

                        Tiredness is primarily about lack of sleep.

                        But fatigue is a perceived feeling of being tired that is much more likely to occur in people who have depression, anxiety or emotional stress and/or are overweight and physically inactive (source: Science Direct).

                        Symptoms of fatigue include:

                        • Difficulty concentrating
                        • Low stamina
                        • Difficulty sleeping
                        • Anxiety
                        • Low motivation

                        These symptoms may sound similar to those of tiredness but they usually last longer and are more intense.

                        Unfortunately, there is no definitive reason why fatigue occurs because it can be a symptom of an emotional or physical illness. But there are still a number of steps you can take to reduce difficult symptoms by making a few simple lifestyle changes.

                        How Much Sleep Is Enough?

                        The number one reason you may feel tired is because of sleep deprivation which means you are not getting enough high-quality sleep.

                        Most adults need 7 to 9 hours of high-quality, uninterrupted sleep per night. If you’re sleep deprived, the amount of sleep you need increases.

                        So, quantity and quality do matter when it comes to sleep.

                        The key to quality sleep is being able to get long, uninterrupted sleep cycles throughout the night. It typically takes 90 minutes for you to reach a state of deep REM sleep where your body’s healing crew goes to work.

                        Ideally, you want to get at least 3 to 4 deep REM sleep cycles in per night. That’s why it’s so important to stay asleep for 7 or more hours.

                        Research also shows that people who think they can get by on less sleep don’t perform as well as people who get at least seven hours of sleep a night[5] So, you should definitely plan on getting seven hours of deep restorative sleep every night.

                        If you are not getting 7 hours of high-quality sleep regularly, then sleep deprivation is most likely reason you feel tired all the time.

                        And that is good news because sleep deprivation is much simpler and easier to address than the other root causes.

                        It’s also a good idea to rule out sleep deprivation as the reason why you are tired before moving on to the other possibilities such as fatigue or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which may require a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

                        4 Simple Changes to Reduce Fatigue

                        Personally, I’m a big believer in upgrading your lifestyle to uplift your life. I overcame chronic stress and exhaustion by making these four changes to my lifestyle:

                        1. Eating healthy, home-cooked meals versus microwaving processed foods or eating out
                        2. Exercising regularly
                        3. Using stressbusters
                        4. Creating a bedtime routine to sleep better

                        So, I know it is possible to change your lifestyle even when you’re working crazy hours and have lots of family responsibilities.

                        After I made the 4 simple changes in my lifestyle, I no longer felt exhausted all of the time.

                        In addition, I lost two inches off my waist and looked and felt better than ever.

                        Advertising

                        I was so excited that I wanted to help others replace stress and exhaustion with rest and well-being, too. That’s why I became a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute.

                        Interestingly enough, I discovered that Dr. Sears recommends a somewhat similar L.E.A.N. lifestyle:

                        • L is for Lifestyle and means living healthy including getting enough sleep.
                        • E is for Exercise and means getting at least 20 minutes of exercise a day ideally for six days a week.
                        • A is for Attitude and means thinking positive and reducing stress whenever possible.
                        • N is for Nutrition and means emphasizing a right-fat diet, not a low-fat diet.

                        The L.E.A.N. lifestyle is a scientifically-proven way to reduce fatigue, get to the optimal weight and to achieve overall wellness.[6]

                        And yes, there does seem to be an important correlation between being lean and feeling rested.

                        But overall based on my personal experience and Dr. Sear’s scientific proof, the key to not feeling tired all of the time does seem to be 4 simple changes to your lifestyle.

                        L — Living Healthy

                        Getting enough high-quality sleep every day is the surefire way to help you feel less fatigued, more rested and better overall.

                        So, whether you’re sleep deprived or potentially suffering from fatigue or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, you probably want to find a way to sleep better.

                        In fact, if you aren’t getting enough sleep, your body isn’t getting the time it needs to repair itself; meaning that if you are suffering from an illness, it’s far more likely to linger.

                        As unlikely as it sounds, though, fatigue can sometimes make it difficult to sleep. That’s why I’d recommend taking a look at your bedtime routine before you go to bed and optimize it based on sleep best practices.

                        Here are 3 quick and easy tips for creating a pro-sleep bedtime routine:

                        1. Unplug

                        Many of us try to unwind by watching TV or doing something on an iPhone or tablet. But tech can affect your melatonin production due to the blue light that they emit, fooling your body into thinking it’s still daytime.

                        So turn off all tech one hour before bed and create a tech-free zone in your bedroom.

                        2. Unwind

                        Do something to relax.

                        Use the time before bed to do something you find relaxing such as reading a book, listening to soothing music, meditating or taking an Epsom salt bath.

                        3. Get Comfortable

                        Ensure your bed is comfortable and your room is set up for sleep.

                        Make sure you room is cool. 60-68 degrees is the ideal temperature for most people to sleep.

                        Also, it’s ideal if your bedroom is dark and there is no noise.

                        Finally, make sure everything is handled (e.g., laying out tomorrow’s clothes) before you get into your nice, comfy bed.

                        If your mind is still active, write a to-do list to help you fall asleep faster.[7]

                        Above all, be gentle with yourself and count your blessings, some sheep or whatever helps.

                        E — Exercise

                        Many people know that exercise is good for them, but just can’t figure out how to fit it into their busy schedules.

                        That’s what happened in my case.

                        But when my chronic stress and exhaustion turned into systemic inflammation (which can lead to major diseases like Alzheimer’s), I realized it was time to change my lifestyle.

                        As part of my lifestyle upgrade, I knew I needed to move more.

                        My friends who exercise all gave me the same advice: find an exercise you like to do and find a specific time in your schedule when you can consistently do it.

                        That made sense to me.

                        So, I decided to swim.

                        I used to love to swim when I was young, but I hadn’t done it for years. The best time for me to do it was immediately after work, since I could easily get an open swim lane at my local fitness club then.

                        Also, swimming became a nice reason for me to leave work on time. And I got to enjoy a nice workout before eating dinner.

                        Swimming is a good way to get your cardio or endurance training. But, walking, running and dancing are nice alternatives.

                        So find an exercise you love and stick to it. Ideally, get a combination of endurance training, strength training and flexibility training in during your daily 20-minute workout.

                        If you haven’t exercised in a while and have a lot of stress in your life, you may want to give yoga a try because you will increase your flexibility and lower your stress.

                        A — Attitude

                        Stress may be a major reason why you aren’t feeling well all of the time. At least that was the case with me.

                        When I worked 70 hours per week as a High-Tech Executive, I felt chronically stressed and exhausted. But there was one thing that always worked to help me feel calmer and less fatigued.

                        Do you want to know what that master stress-busting technique was?

                        Breathing.

                        But not just any old breathing. It was a special form of deep Yogic breathing called the “Long-Exhale Breathing” or “4-7-8 breathing” or “Pranayama” in Sanskrit).

                        Advertising

                        Here’s how you do “Long-Exhale Breathing”:

                        1. Sit in a comfortable position with your spine straight and your hand on your tummy (so you know you are breathing deeply from your diaphragm and not shallowly from your chest)
                        2. Breathe in deeply and slowly from your diaphragm with your mouth closed while you count to 4 (ideally until your stomach feels full of air)
                        3. Hold your breath while you count to 7 mentally and enjoy the stillness
                        4. Breathe out through your mouth with a “ha” sound while you count to 8 (or until your stomach has no more air in it)
                        5. Pause after you finish your exhale while you notice the sense of wholeness and relaxation from completing one conscious, deep, long exhale breath
                        6. Repeat 3 times ensuring your exhale is longer than your inhale so you relax your nervous system

                        This type of “long-exhale breathing” is scientifically proven to reduce stress.

                        When your exhale is twice as long as your inhale, it soothes your parasympathetic nervous system, which regulates the relaxation response.[8]

                        Plus, this is a great technique for helping you get to sleep, too.

                        N — Nutrition

                        Diet is vital for beating fatigue – after all, food is your main source of energy.

                        If your diet is poor, then it implies you’re not getting the nutrients you need to sustain healthy energy levels.

                        Eating a diet for fatigue doesn’t need to be complicated, time-consuming though.

                        For most people, it’s just a case of swapping a few unhealthy foods for a few healthier ones, like switching from low-fiber, processed foods to whole, high-fiber foods.

                        Unless your current diet is solely made up of fast food and ready meals, adjusting to a fatigue-fighting diet shouldn’t be too much of a shock to the system.

                        Here’re 9 simple diet swaps you can make today:

                        1. Replace your morning coffee with Matcha green tea and drink only herbal tea within six hours of bedtime.
                        2. Add a healthy fat or protein to your any carb you eat, especially if you eat before bed. Please note that carb-only snacks lead to blood-sugar crashes that can make you eat more and they can keep you from sleeping.
                        3. Fill up with fiber especially green leafy vegetables. Strive to get at least 25g per day with at least 5 servings (a serving is the size of your fist) of green vegetables.
                        4. Replace refined, processed, low-fiber pastas and grains with zucchini noodles and whole grains such as buckwheat, quinoa, sorghum, oats, amaranth, millet, teff, brown rice and corn.
                        5. Swap natural sweeteners for refined sugars and try to ensure you don’t get more than 25g of sugar a day if you are a woman and 30g of sugar a day if you are a man.
                        6. Replace ice cream with low-sugar alternatives such as So Delicious Dairy-Free Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice Cream.
                        7. Swap omega-6, partially-hydrogenated oils such as corn, palm, sunflower, safflower, cotton, canola and soybean oil for omega-3 oils such as flax, olive and nut oils.
                        8. Replace high-sugar yoghurts with low-sugar, dairy-free yoghurts such as Kite Hill Plain Yoghurt with 1g sugar or Lifeway Farmer Cheese with 0g sugar.
                        9. Swap your sugar-laden soda for sparkling water with a splash of low-sugar juice

                        Also, ensure your diet is giving you enough of the daily essential vitamins and minerals. Most of us don’t get enough Vitamin D, Vitamin B-12, Calcium, Iron and Magnesium. If you are low on any of the above vitamins and minerals, you may experience fatigue and low energy.

                        That’s why it’s always worth having your doctor check your levels. If you find any of them are low, then try to eat foods rich in them.

                        Alternatively, you might consider a high-quality multi-vitamin or specific supplement.

                        The Bottom Line

                        If you are tired of feeling tired, then there is tremendous hope.
