Persian cats, like most cats, can get bored quite easily. To keep your cat active and entertained you need a toy they won’t get bored of. In this post, we will look at the best toy to keep your fluffy, Persian ball of fun entertained.
A bored Persian cat will scratch furniture or look to destroy something in your house to keep themselves entertained. Often a bored cat will just sleep and be sedentary which can, of course, lead to health problems like feline obesity.
The 5 Best Persian Cat Toys
Catit Design Senses Super Roller Circuit
The Catit Design Senses Super Roller Circuit is the ultimate exercise stimulator. This toy will keep your Persian cat entertained for hours as they chase the ball around the track. If you’ve ever used a laser pen and seen your Persian cat go crazy trying to chase the little dot, then this toy works in a similar way.
The great thing about this Persian cat toy is that unlike the laser pen where the cat can’t catch the dot, with this toy they can catch the balls.
This toy provides great mental stimulation for your Persian cat and it’s well-built so you don’t need to worry about your cat breaking it. This is one of the better toys on the market that will work the way it’s supposed to and keep your Persian entertained for many hours.
- Mentally stimulating
- Great exercise aid
- Well priced
- Only available in one color
3-Way Cat Tunnel
Cats love to hide and play in small confined spaces, they feel safe and secure and it coincides with their natural environment. I’ve found out of all the toys my Persian cat has used, this is one of his favorites.
This 3-way cat tunnel is a great exercise aid and will help keep your cat entertained as they play hide and seek with the toy at the end of each tunnel. I’ve found that it works especially well when you have a multi-cat household, they will often chase each other down the tunnels and play hide and seek.
The only negative I could say regarding this product is regarding the build quality, they’re not the sturdiest of toys, but in some ways, that’s part of the design and purpose.
- Great exercise aid
- Well priced
- Not the strongest material
Pet Fit Interactive Cat Wand
Cats are attracted to anything that moves as it’s in their nature to hunt small prey, the feather cat wand is the ultimate toy to replicate this kind of behavior but in the home environment.
Your cat will play endlessly for hours trying to chase the feather as they think it’s a small bird or animal.
You can hang this on furniture and let your cat entertain itself with the toy or you can wave the wand and watch your cat go crazy trying to catch and bite the feather. I’ve often found Milo will lick the feather after playing with it for a while, I’m guessing he just likes a clean toy!
- Encourages a cats natural instinct
- Great exercise aid
- Comes with 3 attachments
- Not the cheapest wand
Go! Cat Laser Toy
What cat doesn’t love to chase the little red dot. With this laser toy, you have two rechargeable pointers. When one is charging you have another to play with your feline friend. These pointers are even more fun in a multi-cat household. It’s fun to watch how each cat reacts to the dot.
These pointers come with three light modes, red dot, UV, and a mini flashlight. The red dot is the one you use to play with your cat. The UV light can be used to spot counterfeit money and pet urine stains. The mini flashlight is self-explanatory, it’s a flashlight after all.
The pointers are fast charging and have no batteries to change. With this being USB, you can charge it at home in a USB wall plug like you would your phone, in the car, or even at your computer. Fully charged in one and a half hours the charge can last up to a week depending on use.
Instead of a button you push, there is a switch that you can set at the mode you want and release it. No need to hold a button down.
- Two pointers for double the fun
- USB rechargeable
- Multi-mode lights
- 100% money back, no questions asked returns or refunds
- Can get faulty pointers
OurPets Play-N-Squeak Twice the Mice Cat Toy
What about mice toys. Most cats love mice toys. These have a neat feature. They squeak if you tap them, which means if your cat bats them they will squeak. This will perk your Persian’s interest even more than regular old mice toys. You get two of them so you will have enough for your multi-cat household or you can put one away for later.
- You get two. Great for homes with multiple cats
- Makes a mousy sound
- Awakens your cat’s natural hunting instinct
- Stimulates your cat mentally and physically
- Contains catnip – This isn’t a con in that it is bad, but that some may not want their cats to have catnip.
- Can get defective mice
It’s quite difficult to choose which is the best Persian cat toy as every cat is different, in this post I’ve picked the top 5 toys that I feel most Persian cats will like and invariably will keep them entertained.
I’ve personally bought many toys that I thought were going to be entertaining and an exercise aid for Milo and then he just hasn’t used them as much as I would have liked. Sometimes I believe you can have too many toys and your Persian cat just becomes accustomed to them and no longer finds them attractive.
I would recommend about 30 minutes play with your Persian cat every day to avoid boredom and undesirable behavior.
If you have any toys that you find to work well at keeping your Persian cat entertained and well-exercised, then let me know in the comments. I’d love to know what you think is the best toy for your Persian.
