High Tech Cat Toys For Ailurophiles
Let’s face it, cat fans, our society, at least in the United States, is totally divided between “The Greatest Generation,” “Baby Boomers (okay?)”, “Generation X,” “Millennials” aka “Generation Y,” and finally, “Generation Z”. However, US societal divides DO have common ground: love of FELINES! And within this very broad CAT-egory (pun intended), there are certain beliefs:

1. Nothing is too good for our cats;

2. Most cat owners lean to the “geeky” side of products; and

3. Getting access to the latest technology in cat-related products is a MUST!

Social media is full of the latest gadgets, comfort essentials, and of course, toys. Cat Talk staffers have explored current offerings and share some of their more unique discoveries in this article. Unless specifically stated, we have not tested these products with our cats and do not necessarily endorse them purrsonally. (On the other hand, we would happily investigate furrther and engage in lab testing if any manufacturers wish to supply us with samples.) All prices were current at the time of writing.

But First, Playtime

We were intrigued by five high-tech toy picks deemed worthy of mention by online author Amy-Mae Elliott. Her number-one selection was the battery-operated FroliCat Sway and Twitch Automated Cat Toy, featuring a tantalizing interactive and programable bell, ball and feather. Its suction-cup base attaches to flat surfaces so you can set up a kitty play area practically anywhere in the house. Available on Amazon, it’s priced at only $14.00.

The toy selections also included the Hagen Catit Design Senses Play Circuit, which entices kitties with a ball in a semi-enclosed track. The ball can be maneuvered through and around the track, and extra tracks to lengthen the toy are available. The original version sells for $18.79 but a newer version is available for $12.99 on Amazon.
