If you've got a playful cat that can't get enough chase, consider picking up – and putting down – a collection of Jitter Critters ($8) for your feline's frisky fun. All you do is pull the string of the mouse, squirrel, tiger or hedgehog versions and let your kitty do the rest . . . plus, there are no risky batteries involved for those chew-prone pets. Purrrfect!
Ever since I came across the Plush Catnip Birds yesterday, I've become totally in love with ItchyKnee's cat goodies! Even though I don't have a kitty of my own, I can appreciate an awesome product when I see one. One of my other favorites is this Wall Barrel ($70-$120) that attaches right to your wall, and comes in some eye pleasing colors and textures. They also have a floor version, but I like this one because it becomes more of a cat tree, especially if you stack them, like in this pic.
Plus, the wall barrel is made of sturdy cotton, wool, and corduroy, so if your kitty decides to have a little scratch, he won't harm it - well, not too much anyway! ItchyKnee has even more really cute cat accessories that I've rounded up in one of my handy widgets when you read more
The holiday gift giving season may be near over, but your favorite feline still deserves some treats! If you happen to have a frisky, instinctive cat — or know someone that does — you can never go wrong with toys that spark playful fun and a little exercise.
I love the Fling-ama-String, a $25 battery-operated cat toy that aims to improve "paw eye coordination" and keep your cat on the move. It's essentially a long plastic tube with a string that moves up and down to tease your kitty. It hangs on a door knob, counter top or chair and will entertain your cat even when you're not around.
