If your cat just does not care about playing anymore, you may have luck with one of the cat toys from Amazon listed below. These types of toys worked well for my senior and adult cats when they wouldn’t play with anything else. Hopefully your cats will enjoy these as well!
Best Cat Toys on Amazon for Bored Cats…
SmartyKat Electronic Cat Toys with Bird Sounds: Bring the outdoors inside for you indoors-only kitty! Even senior cats tend to love the realistic sounds and feel of chirping toys.
Ethical 100-Percent Catnip Candy Mice Cat Toys 2-Pack : Even if your cat does not respond to catnip, the texture of catnip toys can be enticing.
Tinksky Cat Toy Chaser Wand Teaser: Never underestimate the power of a good fishing rod style cat toy. Plus, your hands will be thankful for no scratches since the length of this toy gives room for cat swats.
A classic but a goodie – a cardboard cat scratcher: If your cat claws the furniture and climbs the walls, a good cat scratcher is essential. For even better results, keep more than one in the house. The cloth and carpet cat scratchers are typically not as exciting as the messy cardboard scratchers (sorry). Be sure to add catnip for instant entertainment. My cat avoids clawing the furniture when she has easy access to fresh cat scratchers. Even with heavy use, cardboard cat scratchers only need to be switched out every 3-6 months.
