It’s the holiday season! And do you know what cats (probably) love the most about Christmas? Attacking, chasing, and batting the leftover wrapping paper and ribbons.
Ribbons, string, tinsel, and wrapping paper are not the safest Christmas cat toys. Some can be deadly. You want to keep these items away from your kitty because they will become a choking hazard or worse — wrap around the intestine. Before you know it, your inquisitive cat has gotten into trouble, and your holiday gathering has come to an abrupt halt as you rush your pet to the emergency vet.
With holidays come hazards. The decorations and pretty wrapped gifts are way too tempting for our furry friends. Keep the ornaments out of their mouths and redirect their curiosity to cat-appropriate toys.
Here are some great interactive cat toys, catnip toys, and other gift ideas that will satiate your kitty’s natural instincts without posing any major health risks.
Crinkle Christmas Gifts for Cats
Cats love a good crinkly toy, which is why they’re so drawn to items like wrapping paper and tissue paper. Ask Santa Claus to stuff their Christmas stocking with their own crinkle toys that are safer to play with like crinkle balls. There’s no Christmas cat toy like one actually designated for cats.
