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.
Great chasing toy
By Mary482 on Dec 2, 2023
My kitty loves chasing the little balls round and round. I honestly think it makes him dizzy going round and round and he lays down. Once he lays down, he takes his paw to push the balls around, being lazy and worn out I think.
An Absolute Winner!
By Ruth on Nov 28, 2023
Two cats live at our house, one disdains toys, the other is always looking for something new to investigate. This cat tracks toy with its rolling balls has intrigued them both. The non-toy cat spent a couple of hours investigating this, lying on her back while reaching for the easy moving balls & batting them around. But she was done & finished ^& hasn't looked at it since. However, the more inquisiitive one has come back day after day to play. It is just a great toy, has many movements to keep a cat enthused.
kitten must have
By Allana on Nov 28, 2023
kittens have so much energy and man oh man this is the perfect toy to not only entertain your kitten but to tire them out! absolutely recommend this toy!
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.
By Jack on Nov 20, 2023
My cat instantly started chewing and rubbing onto it this coupled with brushing their teeth will help them a lot I’m sure
By Andrea on Nov 19, 2023
My cats both loved this for a while. They went nuts playing with it. It did seem to wear off pretty quickly and they’re not interested now anymore, but for the price it was good
A moment's love
By Nancy on Nov 18, 2023
She loved it for a couple of minutes until she threw it into the black hole of cat toys ..someday it might appear again.
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.
Great buy and keeps my cat's interest!
By Arlene on Nov 19, 2023
I have ordered this toy before and Mia just loves them. I dole them out one at a time and she rubs her face on them and throws them in the air. Most toys don't interest her but she loves these mice.
Toss n' Decimate - Cat Lines Them Up Next To Bowl
By Corey on Nov 12, 2023
Cat's favorite along with Fat Cat Eeeks (aka Rude Mouse). The simplicity and catnip aroma of Frisco Plush Mice are 'happy toys' indeed. Lines them up next to bowl for a 5-STAR feline review
By Sharon on Nov 9, 2023
This is my cat's favorite toy. She loves the catnip scent but especially likes that she can carry them around by the tail and shake them without the tails falling out. (Similar mice with feather tails keep losing their tails due to her shaking them, so now we've switched.)
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.
My kitty favorite toy
By Mary482 on Dec 2, 2023
I got this Teaser Wand for my kitty's birthday and he loves it. I think for sure it is his favorite toy. He chases it, jumps up high to catch it. Every, single night that is his first toy he wants to play with and he and I play with it for hours. Actually it is good exercise for him.
Cat is obsessed
By Laura on Nov 30, 2023
I can’t explain it but my cat absolutely loses her mind for this toy. Have already bought the purple one as a backup.
A favorite toy!
By SUSAN on Nov 30, 2023
This is such a hit at our house that I gave one to the neighbor cat as well. She loves it too!
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.)
great interactive feeder
By Kate on Nov 29, 2023
The cats love eating food out of this. I place food vs treats in it. It allows both cats to eat out of it and keep them engaged to move the things around to get it out.
By Katie on Nov 27, 2023
My cat loves this toy! It came recommended to me from a Chewy representative when I mentioned that my cat needed something to keep him busy. It took a few days for him to understand how it works and now he's got it down!
for the very food motivated
By Jeri on Nov 27, 2023
One of my cats isn’t so food motivated and didn’t have any interest in working to get treats out of it. The other is always begging for treats and was immediately interested in the toy. She plays with it even when there’s not treats in 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.
New Favorite toy
By Rebecca on Dec 1, 2023
My cat loves this thing. His favorite game is fetch and he'll bring me this toy all day long to throw for him.
Toy for Gwamcat
By Cindy on Nov 23, 2023
Sadly I ordered this for my gwamcat and she passed 4 days before her 9th birthday and I just can't open the Chewy box. It's still in my kitchen and I just can't look in the box knowing she will bever get to play with it.
Cats love it!
By Tiffany on Oct 15, 2023
It's a super cute toy. My cats have one of each color. They love them all. One of them throws it up in the air and chases it around the entire house
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.
Blissed out on the 'Nip 'Nana
By Gwendolyn on Dec 1, 2023
When this product first arrived, my cat drooled almost instantly upon introduction to the banana. She's never done that before. 😆
This organic catnip fabric banana completely mellows the cat out. She's not hyper to begin with, but it's now a running joke in the family that she's "nipped up" or "hitting the nip nana hard" when she is more relaxed than usual.
It's a great product and works really well for our feline housemate. The drooling was a one off effect fortunately.
Love that it's organic too.
All the cats love it
By ashley on Dec 1, 2023
I keep multiples of these in the house, the cats love them so much. The cats that are entirely indoor will play with them but not tear them up. The stray kitty that wants to come inside when it's cold will rip huge holes to get to the catnip and is very pleased with himself.
By Kimberly on Dec 1, 2023
My cat pulled it out of the box when I opened it. He loves it. It might not last long the way he bites and kicks it. The cat nip is strong. He wanted to eat the sticker that was on it.
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.
Best tunnel I've bought
By jeanne on Nov 29, 2023
This tunnel is sturdy. I've bought 3 before and all were paper and just didn't hold up. This is good fabric and tough enough to actually be played in. It's attractive in a chocolate brown. I expect it to last a while. The ball is still attached; no wiring is showing; and the windows are nice size. And it wasn't much more than the fragile ones. Much better buy if you really want a tunnel for your cats!
By mary on Nov 13, 2023
This has become our 6 month kittens FAVORITE thing of all things. She just loves running through it. She has perfected her tokyo drift out the back end.
Durable and Large enough.
By Mary on Nov 8, 2023
Our two Fully grown cats love it!
It’s made of a strong fabric and is roomy enough for full-size 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.
By Kristina on Dec 2, 2023
My kitten LOVES these springs. It's the only thing that will steadily keep her attention/occupied. She will carry it from room to room and then chase it around. They are unpredictable in the way they bounce and I think that's what makes them great. My only "complaint" is that they are easily lost, as she has gotten them stuck in areas I can't find.
Best toy for cats
By Mary482 on Dec 2, 2023
My kitty loves these springs. He carries them up and down the steps and smacks them around to play with them. I know he loves them.
They love it!
By Travis on Dec 1, 2023
My two cats, around 7mo love the springs, so much so that we only give them one at a time to play with. They bat it around and like watching the other play with it.
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!
By Tracy on Dec 2, 2023
I love the black light for detecting pee! My babies love the little red dot and chase after it like wild cats.
I really like that you dont have to replace batteries...recharging is easy.
By Sherri on Nov 30, 2023
I've had a lot of different laser pointers for my cats and this one is great because it's rechargeable and has a flashlight which helps me locate toys under furniture.
By April on Nov 25, 2023
This thing lasts a long time on one quick charge. My cats (7) love it! We have several spooky cats that were considered unadoptable because of behavioral issues, but this gets them playing and out of their shell. Also because you switch it on its easier on our fingers. Definitely recommend.
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).
Fun toy for my young cat
By Deanna on Nov 20, 2023
My 2 year old cat enjoys playing soccer with these at least once a day. They are a bit small so easily go under furniture, but it's an easy entertainment option.
YES YES YES
By Andrea on Nov 8, 2023
My cats live for these balls. I have ones from 10 years ago that are just a smidge harder but they don't care. These balls bounce around perfectly for my cats, and they can carry them in their mouths. You definitely need to open them to get the rubber smell to disappate.
Best toy ever
By Cori on Oct 18, 2023
My cats LOVE these balls. They bounce and roll easily and they love carrying in their mouth. And they are quiet!
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!
By Lindsey on Dec 3, 2023
Both of my cats went crazy over this thing hahahahahahahaaaa I filled it with catnip and they were rolling around for quite some time
We bought 3
By Remi on Nov 27, 2023
However many you think you need, double it. No catnip needed. Our cat carries this around with her everywhere. We put one on the end of a play fishing pole and it’s her favorite game! This squirrel is a must! Started noticing some wear after a few weeks of hard play but all limbs are still intact. Pleasantly surprised.
Woody loves Squirrel
By Kimberly on Nov 26, 2023
Woody loves this catnip squirrel. He has so many toys, but he entertains himself by tossing squirrel in the air and batting him around, also sleeps with it!
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.
Claimed by my cat
By Mewstoy on Dec 3, 2023
Yeah he loves it. My other cats cannot even get close. He turns into a potato on it and then after some time I think the catnip does its thing and I find him on his back somewhere sleeping
Start your engines
By Kathy on Nov 16, 2023
My Floof hits it as hard as she can then makes it go the other way. She absolutely loves it.
My cat, Grayson, LOVES this!
By Patti on Nov 12, 2023
I LOVE it, too, as it was so easy to "assemble". (All you need to do is put the circular "scratchy" part in its place, and you're done, unless it was ALREADY in place; I don't remember!) :)
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. What are you waiting for? The time to play is meow!
