What to consider when purchasing Halloween cat toys
Preferences: When selecting Halloween toys for your cat keep in mind your individual cat's preferences and play styles. Select toys that are festive versions of toys your cat has liked in the past. Keep in mind your cat's specific play styles and select toys that will bring out your cat's favorite ways of playing.
Supervision: When giving your cat toys to play with it's important to supervise your cat while they are playing. Supervision is important to make sure that your cat doesn't get tangled in any toys. You'll also want to make sure that your cat doesn't chew any pieces off their toys which could be choked on.
Experiment: Play is an important way to provide your cat with physical and mental enrichment. Taking time each day to play with your cat is a great way to increase your bond and can provide your cat with needed enrichment. Experiment with different kinds of toys your cat might not have seen before and see if those inspire your cat to get more active in play.
