About Petstages Toys for Cats

Play Helps Cats Thrive

Cats love to play, and playtime is essential to your cat’s health at all life stages. Felines also need to exercise their brains to prevent boredom. You should provide your cat with a healthy amount of attention and stimulation to help avoid bad behavior and unhappiness. Petstages can help keep your cat happily playing. Choose from active toys, calming toys, scratchers, catnip and dental toys!

A World of Fun for Your Cat

Let your cat chew, bat, chase and scratch her way to happiness with Petstages cat toys and products. They can help keep your kitty active and feeling her best.

Catnip And Dental Toys

Great to bat and carry, these toys have catnip and unique netting that helps floss teeth and remove soft tartar as your kitty chews.

Tracks And Chaser Toys

Designed to satisfy your cat’s hunting instincts, Petstages ball and track cat toys a fun and interactive way to get indoor cats moving.

Scratchers And Hunting Toys

Scratching is natural for cats, and Petstages offers a variety of scratching and hunting toys to keep cats entertained and nails healthy.

Tower of Tracks

Toys like Petstages’ Tower of Tracks are the perfect way to give your curious kitty the mental and physical exercise she needs. Watch your cat paw at the balls and try to dislodge them—but don’t worry, the balls won’t come loose! Your cat will love the Tower of Tracks no matter how she chooses to use it. It’s perfect for solo play or interactive play with you or other cats!

Easy Life Hammock

The Easy Life Hammock doubles as a lounger and a scratcher. Cats stretch their paws to leave their scent and when they stretch, their claws come out and leave their mark. Scratching can also help remove the dead outer layer on your kitty’s claws. This lounge scratcher will not only help keep your cat’s nails tidy, but it can also help keep her feeling nice and relaxed.

Purr Pillow

If your cat likes to cuddle soft and cozy things, the Purr Pillow may be just what she needs. It has a touch-activated, integrated module that makes a gentle purring noise every time your cat cuddles it. The purring sound lasts for two minutes and can soothe and calm cats of all ages. It is ideal for separation anxiety or any time your feline needs extra comfort.

Would a large cat be able to reach the treat in the little hole?
Answer by ChewyMar 15, 2021
This Cat Toy is suitable for cats of all ages and sizes. A large cat can reach into the hole.

Does this puzzle use only dry food. Is there any that can use moist canned cat food ?
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2020
This toy works best with treats or dry kibble. Using canned cat food would result in a sticky mess that is hard to clean.

Is this dishwasher safe?
Answer by ChewyAug 16, 2021
It is recommended to clean using warm running water and a mild soap. Rinse thoroughly.

Where is this toy made?
Answer by ChewyOct 25, 2021

Cat loves it!

It took a few tries with high-value treats before my cat figured out that this toy was a source of food. She ignored it at first. Now she quickly solves the hardest level (leaves turned to close the cups, treats hidden in the ladybugs). It calms her down when she goes crazy when I’m trying to fall asleep and she wants to play. Definitely doesn’t replace play of course, but provides some enrichment to your kitty

very good!

I have a hard time keeping my cat entertained it took her a few try’s to figure it out but now she can do it no problem and it keeps her busy for a while and it keeps her mind active so it’s good oh but sometimes treats get caught in like the crack between the light green and the dark green but if I fiddle with it for a second I can get them out

Her claw became caught and now she's terrified of it!

I have a few Nina Ottosson cat puzzle toys that my cats love. I expected that this would be another winner, but I am mistaken. My female understood the game, but one of her claws got stuck between moving parts. In her effort to release her paw, she dragged the toy around for several seconds. She is terrified of this toy now. This episode happened under my supervision. I don't see how I could have prevented it from happening. Nina Ottosson makes better puzzles that won't scare or injure your cat.

Our Cat Loves This

We bought this for our very active, 5-month-old kitten. He has figured out what to do quickly, but is not as food-driven as our nine-year old cat who is nearly blind! Zuzu is a rescue who had to have one eye removed as a kitten, and the other eye has a lot of scar tissue. She loves her treats and will work on this as long as it takes her to find the hidden goodies. I'm so happy we bought this!

This was a great choice for my two cats, my 8yr old and 7months Kit and teeter, for getting treats, there is actually three ways to hide them. Both my kitties figured it out, it was so funny..because I was trying to show my kitty how to do it...and whoa and behold he just went to it like it he knew all along.

Great toy

This toy surpassed my expectations because both of my crazy cats have figured this out and really enjoy "hunting" for food. I started with treats but have downgraded to kibble because they both have been emptying it regularly. I move it around the house so they have a fun activity. Since I use hard treats/kibble I really haven't had to do much more than wipe it out. My guys are 7 and 1 and have really not had a problem figuring out how to get the food out. I don't stand and watch them but rely on finding it empty each morning. I recommend this for even picky lazy cats.

This is very cute and seems well made but my cats and kitten are not interested in it at all. I put the good treats in it and they still don't care. I highly recommend for people with pets that love to find food and like this sort of thing. I would recommend to a friend if they already have a pet that has something similar like a Kong toy that the cat or dog loves.

Not for us

I can tell this is a nicely made product that I'm sure some pets love, hence the 3 stars. But my cats won't engage with this toy and have left treats behind for days. They even display strong foraging instincts and still won't play with it. Not for us!

My cat is OBSESSED

Mochi is of the opinion that the leaf is filled every day with treats, and he tells me loudly and often. This puzzle is a great way for trickster cats to do their thief activities without actually getting into your cabinets.

my cat is a smarty pants

i love this toy but my cat figured it out in 5 minutes. i would avoid using anything but treats with a chewy consistency or hard. soft ones get it very messy. it keeps him busy and he checks his puzzle constantly.
