    i bet your cats like crosswords not some stupid toys

  2. Michael Howard on October 14, 2020 at 3:34 pm

    Fuzzy balls! All of my cats (over decades) have loved fuzzy balls. They play with them whenever the mood strikes and those 2 inch fuzzies appear and disappear to be mouth-carried, nail-flicked or batted at will.

  3. Kitty Coleman on October 14, 2020 at 3:34 pm

    The way your cats are with toys is the way my cat is with treats 😂😂😂 So Picky!

  4. James Hurley on October 14, 2020 at 3:34 pm

    you are the BRStv of cats. (that’s a complement)

  5. Arcot Ramathorn1 on October 14, 2020 at 3:34 pm

    Thanks for the advice.
    My cat is lazy until now.❤💯👍🏼👍🏼

    Carboard box, laser pointer, hand under blanket, paper wad, gecko.

    my cats favorite toys is a small soft foam ball with lots of color. They like it a lot! you can buy them in amazon for around $7 the pack of 10 🙂

    Love 💗 you

  9. Emily Williamson on October 14, 2020 at 3:39 pm

    I love it 💗

    I bought a bunch of toys without breaking the bank but my cat’s favorite toy is the one i didn’t buy, it’s just some paracord and yarn i knotted up and tied to some fishing line, she also absolutely adores the Cat Dancer which costs $2 (didn’t hear you say the price in the video), try to mimic hiding prey if they don’t have interest when it’s right in front of their face.

    The best toy that my cats have always loved is — you buy a pack of index cards, and then fold a card about 4 to 5 times, then toss and throw. My cats love it and play with them all the time. They’re also large and stiff enough for them to not easily tear them apart or risk swallowing, so it’s safe and inexpensive.

  12. Emily Williamson on October 14, 2020 at 3:42 pm

    Nice toy 🐱❤️😍🤩😍🥰😘

  13. Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV on October 14, 2020 at 3:44 pm

    you should have played "leave me alone" from Michael Jackson as background music. Your cat has no interest whatsoever in these toys. If she could talk, she’d ask you to sell the toys and buy snacks from that money. But thanks a lot for the video.

  14. Robert Bradford on October 14, 2020 at 3:44 pm

    Most of my cats like the small foam balls about the size of a golf ball. They bat them around and seem to love picking them up and carrying around in their mouth. I also bought years ago a three foot long plastic tube with about a three foot long yarn attached with a furry little attachment at the end about the size of a small mouse. All of the cats love playing with this but I have to keep it in motion to retain their interest so involves a lot of time.

  15. Lynn on October 14, 2020 at 3:45 pm

    both my cats love the tower track toy! and my old lady kitty loves the cat dancer!! it’s the only toy she will consistently will play with me with. i got a rolling robotic toy that neither of them like, and also neither of them like the jaxon galaxy feeder ball toy, similar to the one shown here. I did get a puzzle feeder for my older kitty, where she has to stick her paw into little tunnels to scoop out her special prescription food, and she caught on very quickly! with older kitties it’s important to still stimulate them and offer enrichment that meets their mobility and energy levels 🙂

  16. Lainey Wright on October 14, 2020 at 3:45 pm

    Thank you for your honesty.

  17. Yadz Hero on October 14, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    I can’t seem to figure out what kind of toys my cat likes. He may spend a few seconds with something but then walks away. But he loves to eat so I’m going to try the pet feeder ball.

  18. Karri Compton on October 14, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    Funny how you’re pushing cat toys that your cats won’t play with. LOL.

  19. Josh Whalen on October 14, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    My cat’s favorite toy is the collection of used q-tips in my bathroom trash can.

  20. Jonathan Anderson on October 14, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    Watching this video with my cat in my lap, when the "cat dancer" came on the screen, she jumped up onto the desk and tried to catch it. I think I know what toy I’m buying next.

  21. Taneshqa S. on October 14, 2020 at 3:50 pm

    all the dislikes were from her cats

  22. Katt on October 14, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    child’s fishing rod and any feather cat toy end from a wand. hours of entertainment fishing for cats

  23. Luna Amore on October 14, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    If you have a young kitten get these toys they love them.

  24. Carolina Ahmed on October 14, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    Just a little feedback on your videos. It’s not the first time that I try to watch one of them, always deceived by its title. But when I can here, I get frustrated because it’s not what it looks like. I really wish that you actually have talked about YOUR favorite/best cat toys. The ones YOU like it, not the ones people like in the review. Because we come here interested in these products, thinking that they good, when you actually just test them to say in the end that your cats were not interested. I just want to give you a feedback because I think you may get other people confused aswell with these titles. I appreciate you reviewing those toys, just it wasn’t what I was looking for. And when I read that you tested them, I thought it was a great list of the best that you liked after testing it, and this would be the ultimate list of your cats’ favorites. Anyway, hope you don’t get this wrong. And thank you for your help in talking about these products anyway.

  25. Shay Mart on October 14, 2020 at 3:53 pm

    I have a suggestion… My cat is very picky with toys or gets tired of them very easily. So I understand your dilemma. But I noticed in regards to the cat dancer wand, when you were showing your beautiful orange fur baby you only waved it right in front of the face. I know that in regards to my cat he will do the same and just stare at me. What I have to do is actually wave and drag it further away from him, or creep it around a piece of furniture or something in order for him to chase it. He likes me to put some more effort into playing with him. So I would suggest maybe trying that when testing out toys similar to that. Thanx for the upload!

  26. kereszt1 on October 14, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    Maybe your cat is retarded.

  27. kerrystolcenberg on October 14, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    Your cat’s reactions are like my elderly cat’s- she won’t play with it unless it’s alive. To keep her moving I bought a birdfeeder and a bell collar. Now she gets exercise and no birds are harmed! She stalks pigeons all day long

  28. anatoly suki on October 14, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    quite ironic that your best picks for toys did’nt interest your cat at all

  29. All About Cats on October 14, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    What’s your cat’s favorite toy? Whether your cat goes crazy over hair ties or one of the products on this list, we want to hear about it!

  30. EDEN 2 on October 14, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    So funny how the cat was like…."what, you say this is a cat dancer? I say it is a cat glancer at best".

  31. Kenrick Carlson Keh on October 14, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    I think we should review the cats.

  32. FaneLovex on October 14, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    my cats just play with those worms on string

  33. Tara Baggott on October 14, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    My kitten loves the first toy (senses track toy) although I replaced the heavy light up ball with a plain ping pong ball! I also took off one the blue covers on one of the low pieces so my kitten can grab the ball if he wants to. He loves it!

  34. Emily Williamson on October 14, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    MyCat! name is laz

  35. Naomi Lotus Justice on October 14, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    One of my cats likes to play more and is intruiged by anything that moves, he goes crazy with the tower + ball toy.😂😂🤣 My other cat is lazy, but they both respond to lasers, cats have supersenses that detect movement. They like moving things to chase and hiding places + climbing things. Cats are not stupid, a toy should be based on the personality of your cat.

  36. Cynthia on October 14, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    When I first bought the hexabug my cat wasn’t very interested. I had to try a couple of times but she likes it only in certain scenarios. I put it under a towel where it can run around and she loves pouncing on it and sliding through the whole towel. She also likes to chas the hexabug and is drawn to its vibrations. Sometimes i just place the bug on her and she starts freaking out. If i also hide it underneath something she likes to fling it around and play hide and seek with it. I find that alternating her favorites toys every few months helps keep them relevant.

  37. vintagechild 44 on October 14, 2020 at 4:12 pm

    My cats are like yours, tried them all, they were not excited about them, still looking. My cats mastered the feeder in 5 minutes, I used for treats.

  38. Fluffy Itty Bitty Kitty on October 14, 2020 at 4:13 pm

    my cats dont really like these toys

  39. Kristie Hansen on October 14, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    I wonder if you put. A pong ping pong ball in it. Cats love ping pong balls.

  40. Carrie S on October 14, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    The most favorite cat toy at our local cat shelter by far ___is the TURBO SCRATCHER. Now each cat has one.

  41. Bigfartz69420 on October 14, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    Kitty went nuts for that orange spinny ball toy until he hit about 7 months; I think it’s more of a kitten thing. Can endorse the Slimcat, though. My beeg boy’s current top faves: Sparkly tinsel pompom balls, Da Purrpeller, Shoelaces. Had been looking for recommendations for electronic cat toys, so this vid is just perfect!

  42. Sameen Islam on October 14, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    Seems like your cats are so not interested in playing

  43. Emily Williamson on October 14, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    I love you 😘

  44. mark brunner on October 14, 2020 at 4:20 pm

    You need new testers, maybe a kitten?

  45. Melissa Schauer on October 14, 2020 at 4:21 pm

    your video is not all that informative… I think because maybe you are reading a lot about why toys are important without any actual experience about cats interacting with their toys. I would sincerely advise you to stick to other topics which your cats actually DO participate in. You have a lot of irrelevant information and I think that might be because your cats dont actually play with toys…

  46. Emily Williamson on October 14, 2020 at 4:22 pm

    Love 💗 you 💋

  47. JM JM on October 14, 2020 at 4:23 pm

    I had a foster with limited vision. I popped out the plain balls from the pet tower and replaced with light up balls. Winner!
    Btw. Most light up balls fit, The Catit Fireball however, has replaceable batteries. Win for me.

  48. Mark Ruhe on October 14, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    even though my kitty is 14 years old he loves to play with the string for the blinds too!

  49. Miss Sunny Dee on October 14, 2020 at 4:28 pm

    Your cats weren’t into cat dancer? Wow, mine are crazy about it. And indeed, it’s perfect for me bc I’m limited in my mobility. It might be twice or thrice as expensive here as in the US, it’s still worth the money. Other than the cat dancer the most popular things with my boys are tunnels, especially those with a cube attached, and wand toys with fuzzy worms +bells and wands with a feathery hanger. Funnily enough a thin (0,8mm) elastic black rope is also popular. Oh and those bouncy balls with a feather attached. And one of my boys is crazy about his furry ferret full of valerian; the scent and the very real look help. Most other toys are treated the same as your cats treat your tested materials.
