    Once Austin and I got big into WTE toys for the dogs-we started thinking about ways to do that for our cats. We also realized...we don't really have a lot of cat toys. Since it's tax season and we have some "free" cash I'm interested in picking up a couple of things for the kit-tehs.

    We have three towers in our house...and we have floating cabinets and plant shelves that one of the cat likes to climb on (we don't mind). The other cat likes to hang out in the garage-he sleeps in the car or the hanging kayak. We also have two additional scratching posts. We have these work to eat toys:

    That first one-it's a POS. (or my cats are assholes) They just tip it over on it's side and all the food flies out of it. I don't even know why they include that rubber ring...damn thing didn't even stay on. The other two we use every night.

    We've bought cat toys in the past...but they're really hit or miss (or the dogs destroy them). The one they are obssessed with right now is this thing (we're actually considering getting a second one because they've gotten a little snarky with each other over it).

    So, I'm looking for ideas. What do you guys have/use/love? The things I've shared pictures of are things that our dogs don't give a second look to...and I'm kinda interested in more stuff like that.

    my cat was a super bitch. i had found her when i was walking my dog one day and i heard this faint little meow. low and behold i come across this tiny kitten, just one, eyes weren't even open yet. I felt morally obligated to take her in and bottle feed her. I got her fixed and all her shots, she had a very feral soul so she was outside a lot. about 3 years later one day she just never came back. But i've got many scars from this woman, she certainly left a mark on my heart and every appendage.

    Ha! I'm happy to hear we're not the only ones with bunghole cats.

    The other day I went into work late because I wasn't feeling well...I intended to sleep in and rest. Charlie (the Siamese) had a different idea. Husband did not feed the cats before he left for work and they were not happy about it. In our bathroom we have one of those shelving systems that fits over the toilet. I had a...I don't even know what to call it...It's a little metal giraffe that I put my rings and bracelets on(jewelry holder?). He knocked that over. Thank god the toilet seat was down. So I get up, pick the stuff up and close the bathroom door. Go back to bed. He comes over to my side of the bed. We have a plastic dog kennel there and I use it as a nightstand. He knocked my chapstick off (remember the mouth breathing issue?)...I chase him away...try to go back to sleep. He jumps up on my dresser and knocks a barrett off. Finally I get up and feed his punk ass and get ready for work.

    lol they are so pushy, at night if i left my bedroom door open the cat would run on and off the bed all night and knock stuff over, so i had to shut the door. Then she would literally claw underneath the door and shift it a tiny bit back and forth creating a loud noise. My next effort was to shove a towel under the door so it wouldn't move back and forth and she couldn't get her scissor hands underneath it. So then i hear her knocking things over downstairs, i was like that's it. You're now an outside cat at night time. I think we both enjoyed that arrangement much better

    Haha well im glad my cat isnt as mischieveous as both of yours :P.

    He is the laziest thing I have ever known. If he isnt sleeping on our bed he is sleeping on the dogs bed. Which I am ok with lol

    This is Charlie-he's the oldest animal in our house...9 last November.

    He LURVS his Bailey girl. (that's him trying to woo her in the bathroom during a thunderstorm) Right before my husband got out of the military (I still had a year left) we took Charlie from a family that no longer wanted him so that I wouldn't be "alone". At the time I thought it was the toughest year of my life, and I was so thankful to have him. Little did I know the following year would be worse (we lived with my FIL and his wife). Bailey and Charlie shared our little bedroom all day every day. We had no idea back then the risk we were taking leaving them together, but obviously they love each other very much (and we don't leave our animals together anymore when we're away from home).

    And this is Gus-he's the youngest in our house...6 this April.

    He's really come around the last couple of years. He was an itty bitty baby when we got him-weighed less than a pound, was starving and super ferral. He's quite the love bug now. Still doesn't like to be on your lap or be held but has the best good morning meows/loving. I think he's helped to keep Charlie young. I wanted to name him booger, but Austin wasn't having it. Then I thought Ace would be cool...because we got him at an Ace hardware...it ended up that he had worms really badly and he looked like Gus Gus from Cinderella.

    My boys love their Kit-E-Quiz:
    Kit-E-Quiz Cat Game by Cat Ware | Cat Toys | Challenging Toys

    It has two sides with two different puzzles. One they have to slide discs that are hiding treat holes, and one they have to move little wooden dowels to uncover the treats.

    The Fling-ama-string has been a huge hit too.
    Award-winning cat toys: Fling-ama-String by Moody Pet at Drs. Foster & Smith

    It's battery operated, the belt moves in a loop so the string flies out the top, drags across the floor, and gets sucked back up over and over. The motor is very weak so even if the cats stick their paws in the belt, it just stops, it could never hurt them.
