The purpose of play for your kitten is to satisfy their need to hunt and feel like a predator. The best toys are the ones that trigger the hunting instincts!
Typically, this means that you should be on the other end of the toy, making it act like a bird or a mouse so that it can be a real thrill for them 🙂 But there are days where laziness gets the best of us. This inexpensive toy has been one of the best purchases I’ve made!
The SmartyKat Hot Pursuit toy is a must have. At under $20, it will provide hours of entertainment and is extremely resilient. All you have to do is turn it on!
Toys can be really hit or miss. And honestly, I can’t promise you your cat is going to go nuts for this every day of the week. But all my cats have shown fascination with it, and some are down right obsessed with it.
You just turn it on and the toy moves under the cover, super enticing to the predator in your kitty. It has spinning lights and 2 speeds. And it can take a lot of abuse. It runs on batteries, but the battery life is great.
I absolutely love the auto shut off feature, and the fact that the toy at the end is not feathered. Feathered toys always require supervision, and with this one, I can actually leave my cats with it unattended without worrying they are going to swallow feathers.
Again, I can’t make any guarantees that your cat will love it. But he’s bound like get more entertainment from it than the lifeless fake mice we try giving them, right?!
