If you have a feline friend, then you know cats can be extremely picky when it comes to their toys and what they like. Sure, a dog might like any old toy you throw their way, but cats have taste. Cats have standards. Cats have expectations. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up Chewy’s best-selling cat toys that have been tested and approved by thousands of pet parents (like you!) who want only the best for their best friends.
From plush toys to teasers, these top picks are sure to earn purrs from even the most discerning felines.
Indoor cats may not have to catch their dinner, but they still maintain their natural hunting instincts. That’s why this feather teaser is so much fun—cats simply can’t resist “hunting” the fluttering butterfly and rolling balls. It’s an ideal teaser toy for kitties who are instantly intrigued by moving objects.

Easy to assemble. Once I put it on the floor, both kittens (5 months old) engaged. They LOVE it. It was also used by one while the other took a nap. This is a winner!
Worth every penny
By Rusty on Jan 30, 2023
This toy is perfect for playful kittens and cats. Our kitten is 8 months old and he loves it. It is fairly quiet and keeps them busy if they play at night.
a win for kitty
By Karen on Jan 30, 2023
My cat is very picky about the toys he'll play with, but he actually likes this one! And it seems pretty sturdy.
Cat chew toys can help kitties maintain clean, healthy teeth (in addition to regular dental care, of course). Ideal for pets whose breath needs a boost, this cat teething toy is stuffed with dried mint for an instant burst of freshness. Durable netting helps remove tartar, while a fun crinkle material encourages chomping.

I’ve seen a lot of people on hedgehog groups recon this toy for them. It’s super cute and can’t wait for the hedgehog to get it for Christmas.
Great chewy toy
By Darryl on Dec 14, 2022
Pencey loves these. I purchased these for Christmas, I hid them in a box and the next thing I know, he had the pack of two and was chewing and playing with them.
With fuzzy textures, long string tails, and an infusion of premium catnip, these mouse toys, which come in sets of 3 or 5, are tantalizing to kitties with a strong prey drive. For a great workout and bonding session, toss them around the room and let your pampered predator go wild.
Nothing Better than Mice!
By HandyGranny on Jan 25, 2023
Is there anything better than mice for a cat? Both of my cats love these and they seem to be made very well.
Catnip mice CATS LOVE THEM!!
By Cher on Jan 24, 2023
5 in a package so I sent 3 with adopted cat. My cat LOVES his 2 mice and other cat goes bonkers over her 3! Will buy 1 more package for backup as they are small and get batted under things.
Cats love them.
By Sheltie on Jan 23, 2023
My two cats just love these little mice. I hide them around the house for them to find and play with and they look for them every day.
Cats have a reputation for being aloof (some may even say “standoffish”). But in truth, they love (and need!) quality one-on-one time with their people. Complete with colorful feathers, fun textures, crinkle sounds, dangling string, and catnip, this fully-loaded feather wand toy is an easy way to play together and strengthen your bond.
By Msmeg on Feb 1, 2023
My cats are obsessed with these. The only issue is that the feathers don't last long, but for the costn they're great.
My cat loves it!
By Catlady on Feb 1, 2023
I bought this a while a gonand she loves it so mich that she broke it all and had ro buy her a second one. She loves it.
By JJoy on Jan 30, 2023
As you are aware cats are quite unique. i think this such a hit because my cat likes to chase and capture things. it is sturdy and have lost very few feathers during her frantic pouncing and trapping.
In addition to physical exercise, cats need mental stimulation to keep their minds fit and healthy. This puzzle toy for cats is great for keeping curious cats engaged and entertained. Simply fill it with treats, and let your cat practice foraging through 14 hidden compartments. (It’s also a great tool for slowing down kitties who eat their dinner too quickly.)
By Zach on Jan 31, 2023
Our cat Zach loves this! He waits for it every night. We give it to him right before we go to bed. He’s a big cat and all the other treat mazes his paws and face are too big for. This one is great! Highly recommend!
fun fun fun
By RIcatmom on Jan 5, 2023
Leo loves this food puzzle. Whether it has treats or food it's a fun activity for a bored house cat.
Cat puzzle toy
By cathy on Jan 4, 2023
The cats loved this. My one cat figured it out right away the other two are still working on it.
Have a wriggly wrestler? For cats who enjoy tossing and tackling their toys, this cat kicker toy was made for roughhousing. The elongated shape makes it ideal for “bunny kicking,” while an infusion of catnip makes the “hunt” more exciting. After playtime, the plush texture is the purr-fect cat-nap companion.

This is one of my fur baby's new favorite toys since we have received it--he really loves to grab on to it and give the plushie multiple little kicks; I love watching him have so much fun! :)
Simple & Cats Love them
By WRS31088 on Jan 2, 2023
My friend’s cat loved his Orange Fox and I have her cat’s sister so I got her the purple raccoon. They are both obsessed so we will be ordering the blue raccoon for their other brother.
His favorite toy
By Cheeto on Dec 22, 2022
Got this for our little 9month old Cheeto man, he was into it before I even got it out of the box lol, he loves this thing. He will wrestle and play with it for hours. Definitely added to the favorites list!!
Not all kitties respond to catnip’s natural stimulants, but if your pet goes nuts for the ‘nip, this is the ultimate catnip cat toy. Filled to the brim with high-quality, pesticide-free organic catnip, it’s crafted from durable cotton twill that can handle session after session of bites and bunny kicks.
Both cats went crazy for it
By Linds on Feb 1, 2023
Both of my cats loved this toy. Even my cat that is not much of a player went crazy for it.
Catnip yellow banana cat toy
By Catlady on Jan 30, 2023
My cat is 13 years old and absolutely loved this banana cat nip toy. She picks it up and throws it. She rolls around on it. Great toy!!!!
My cats love this toy!
By Kasandra on Jan 30, 2023
I have three cats and they were immediately obsessed with it. I will have to buy two more so they can each get their own.
For kitties who love a good game of hide-and-pounce, this dynamic cat tunnel toy is an all-in-one playground. Almost four feet long, it features exciting crinkle noises, peekaboo windows, and a dangling toy ball. It’s great for communal play in multi-cat households, and folds flat for easy storage.
Kitty loves It!
By Carol on Jan 25, 2023
This tunnel is great. It crinkles when our cat runs through it. He loves the holes where we can dangle his toy and he stealthily sneaks up on it. The best feature is that is compresses easily and has 3 ties to keep it closed for storage. Great quality
Play Tunnel Rules!
By James on Jan 22, 2023
I really did not expect much for this price. Tunnel is durable and well built and cats love to play in it. I am getting another!
Tunnel for cats
By Carla on Jan 18, 2023
My cats love chasing each other through it, jumping through the added holes and the crackling noise keeps them amused. Worth the money for my 4 cats.
Kittens like to play, play, play, and these cat spring toys are up for the job! With an erratic bounce and vibrant color, they move like small prey to keep energetic pets entertained for rewarding, long-lasting play sessions. With 10 per pack, there’s plenty of fun to go around in multi-cat families.
My Boys Love Them
By Terra10 on Feb 2, 2023
My two cats love the springs. Took to them as soon as I put them on the floor. I had to show them how to play with them. Once they figured it out, a few seconds, they played with them for hours.
By NorseMaiden on Feb 2, 2023
I haven't any idea why these reasonably inexpensive springs beat out the more expensive options, but time and time again my two cats will play all day with a spring while other things go untouched. Highly recommend.
Fun for cats!
By MimiSunset on Feb 2, 2023
We have two cats, and the one likes these more than the other. He will pick it up and run off with it like it is prey, and then go under the bed with it. Then he'll bat it around and do the zoomies with it in his mouth. Lol! These are not expensive at all. I recommend them. If your kitties don't like it, at least you're not our a lot of money.
Few kitties can resist the tantalizing red dot of a laser cat toy. This top-rated model is easily rechargeable using a standard USB port, and even doubles as a LED flashlight and UV blacklight when playtime is over. Ready, set, pounce!
Absolutely love it!
By Lotta on Jan 30, 2023
Bonus points for it working right out of the box. I didn't look too much into it only to find out that I didn't have to hold down a button, which I REALLY love! My 2 year old pup loves laser lights, but my hands are so weak I can't hold down buttons too long, so this is perfect, and I was only getting it for the rechargeable feature! Here he is all tired after a round lol
Love this laser pointer
By Catt on Jan 25, 2023
My cats love laser pointers but the batteries don't last long. This one is great because it is USB rechargeable plus it has a regular light and a black light in addition to the laser light. My cats love it too.
Loads of fun!
By Grandma on Jan 24, 2023
This laser toy provides an easy and fun way to entertain your cats! I can sit in one place and direct the beam all over the house to give our kitties plenty of exercise. They absolutely love to chase the red light! It recharges easily and unlike most of our cat toys is not lost under the furniture.
If your feline friend is a FIFA fanatic, these cat toy balls are a must. Soft and lightweight, they’re enticingly colorful and have a fun-to-claw foam texture. There are four in every pack, making them perfect for multi-cat households (or solo soccer stars).
best cat toy
By caveman on Dec 21, 2022
i have had cat four 20yr this keep them active and alive. they can play for hours with this toy
Good toy for easily bored cat
By Luni on Dec 14, 2022
My 5 year-old cat is very picky toys. He ignores most of the fancy toys I buy. But he does like to play with these balls. I like that they are much softer than plastic ones.
By MONTY on Nov 21, 2022
I HAVE TWO IN-HOUSE CATS AND TEN FERAL CATS THAT I FEED AND SHELTER. ALL OF THEM LOVE THESE BALLS. THEY CAN HOOK THEM WITH THEIR CLAWS AND WHIP THEM ALL OVER, THEN CHASE THEM. GOOD FUN, GREAT EXERCISE FOR ALL MY FELINES. I'M SURE I'LL BE ORDERING MORE SOON. KEEP THEM IN STOCK PLEASE.
If your cat loves snuggling (and/or attacking) stuffed animals, this plush cat toy is a homerun. Featuring a hidden catnip compartment, it transitions seamlessly from snuggle-time to party-time. Refill again and again to amp up play sessions and keep this new toy forever-fresh!
My cat loves this
By Nancy on Jan 20, 2023
My cat loves this toy. She is 6 years old and have never seen her play with any toy as much as this one.
My cats love this!
By Catsmom on Jan 16, 2023
I bought this cute little animal for my cats. It was easy to fill it with the catnip and my cats love playing with it! Thank you Chewy!
By er13 on Jan 12, 2023
My cat got this in a birthday pack. She loved her squirrel so much I bought her another. She brings her squirrels everywhere around the house. Always needs squirrel before bedtime. Waiting for a restock so I can buy more!
Scratching is a natural behavior that cats instinctively need to do—and without designated scratching surfaces, they’ll happily practice on your living room furniture. Made from claw-able corrugated cardboard and featuring a fun rolling ball track, this cat scratcher toy encourages good behaviors and helps keep nails healthy.
By Brooklyn on Feb 1, 2023
This is so much better than I ever expected it to be! Both of my cats love it, one of which dislikes most toys. He will actually lay across it in a show of ownership....but that doesn't last long, as he can't resist playing with it. I LOVE it!
Cats love it, fun to watch
By Deborah on Jan 27, 2023
Cassie LOVES this toy. She has become quite a soccer player. She does it standing up or lying down. No real interest in scratching area. Have not tried catnip but will try.
* Big fun *
By jennchi on Jan 18, 2023
One cat loves it sooooo much. The other cat lays across it so the one cat can't have fun. He's just mad he can't destroy it. He tries to remove the ball, but it's in there good. It gets played with day and night. It's cool there are replacement scratch rounds. They both enjoy that part.
When it comes to playtime, your kitty deserves (and maybe even demands) the best types of toys and pet products. High-quality playthings can lead to better mental stimulation, more exercise, enhanced wellness, and stronger bonds between cat owners and pets. (Learn more about the benefits of playtime here.) What are you waiting for? The time to play is meow!
