Here’s our review of the classic cat laser pointer.
Ethical Pet Cat Laser Pointer Toy
For the classic laser cat toy, you can’t go wrong with this simple, affordable option that offers two modes: laser (for play), and a convenient flashlight. It runs on three LR44 button batteries, and easily clips to your keychain so you won’t lose it.
As with dogs, you’ll want to use laser toys in moderation to avoid unwanted (and unhealthy) behaviors from developing in your cat.
If you notice your cat is getting frustrated chasing the laser and being unable to capture any real prey, PetMD recommends “switching to a different type of game that allows your cat [to] act out more of the predatory sequence,” such as a cat fishing rod (we recommend the Da Bird play rod) that allows you to flick a stuffed mouse or feathers. After a robust round of play, you could also give you cat a few treats to reward her for her hard work and sharp hunting skills.Shop on Chewy
