Big Cat Toys #1:

Potaroma Electric Flopping Fish 10.5", Moving Cat Kicker Fish Toy, Floppy Fish Toy, Wiggle Fish Catnip Toys, Motion Kitten Toy, Plush Interactive Cat Toys for Cat Exercise

If you are wondering what's "in" nowadays, you've found it.

This top selling big cat toy has a way of cats very excited. The reviews (nearly 24,000 of them!) are solid, and the cats totally love it!

What I notice most, is that this is no flimsy kitty toy. It's a big cat toy for big cats. 

And it's uncanny how realistic the flopping motion is!

It has a catnip pouch, and it's usb rechargeable, so no batteries. I love how many things are rechargeable now! Also, it's made of non-toxic durable materials designed to hold up to cat-attacks. Let the fun begin!

Helpful to note:

Cat lovers share that when this toy is finished recharging, the light goes out. Some folks thought the light would go from red to green, but it just goes out. And it lasts a long time!

Also, pet owners love ingenious way it stops flopping when left alone, and "wakes" back up when batted or tapped. Just like real life! Battery operated toys that just go and go tend to get old pretty fast, so this is a terrific design.

This durable toy holds up to some good old fashioned rabbit-kicking too - great news for owners of large cats!

Da Bird Rod and Feather Cat Toy, Handmade in The USA (1 Bird) 
original 36 inch pole with the original Guinea feather refill attached

No list of big cat toys would be complete without the original Da Bird. 

It speaks for itself with 5 star reviews all around thousands of cat lovers who praise it.

Helpful to note:

This has been the number one hit with multiple cats over many years for many cat lovers.

It's a good idea to store this interactive toy when not in use, if you want it to last!

The feathered end "flutters," imitating a bird, which is much better than most other wand style cat toys. 

Cats come a'running, practicing their gymnastic skills, getting a great workout all while bonding with their people during this fun and interactive playtime! No wonder why this toy has stood the test of time.

Interactive cat toys are really important for bonding time, and for mental stimulation for cats of all ages. Playing together is a great way to stave off senility in elderly cats, as well.

Now that I know more about how fluffy mouse toys are made, we stick to non-fur or faux fur mice like these.

These adorable catnip mice have over 26 thousand reviews, holding steady at 4.5 stars. And for less than a cup of coffee - a great value!

This package contains three 4 inch long mice that are packed with catnip. SmartyKat products are principally made from recycled, reclaimed, renewable and certified organic materials

Our Maine Coons always loved their crinkle balls with a passion.

I think of crinkle balls and spring toys as being the "bread and butter" of big cat toys!

These fun shapes, with fun noises, that move in fun ways keep our larger cats moving and getting exercise and mental stimulation.

36 pieces may seem like a lot, but soon they will be under every piece of furniture and you'll be glad to be able to find one, even with 36 floating about!

Plus the different shapes helps ensure there is something to be loved by your big kitty.

Helpful to note: Some pet owners note the these balls as being quite durable. Others have said they were not so durable but that was ok, since they tend to get lost anyway and these are such a great price they are easy to replace.
