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.

Minibelle approved

It took Minibelle, my 10 year old cat, a little bit to figure this out but she already loves it! She is a little nervous around new people, so I plan to use this in the future when we have guests visiting to maybe help calm her down and give her something to do. It’s great quality and I was happy to catch it on sale. :) Enrichment for cats is important!

Worth a Try

My cat enjoys this, and we use it everyday. It took her a while to be interested, but once she figured out there really were treats inside, she learned quickly. The trick is to get the treats in the slots before she grabs them out of my hand. I haven’t had the problems others have mentioned with treats getting stuck in the slots. As you can tell from the reviews, some cats have fun with this and others don’t. It’s worth a try if you want to give your cat a challenge.

All my cats love it

Have had this for about two months now...i bought it originally as another way to keep my bengal kitten engaged...I also have two senior black cats who prior to this never played with toys. Well...all three of them love this...and so now i am regularly filling it with treats...and it didnt take them too long to figure out the harder part.

A neat little toy but...

My cat was able to figure it out but the puzzle didn't work very well because the small size of her dry food would get caught in the sidetracks and eventually end up underneath. The small size of her food also caused the slides to jam and frustrate her and me. If the puzzle were solid instead of layers of plastic put together and if the tracks were wider and v-shaped so they wouldn't hold the food, the puzzle might work better for us.

Not something that my kitty noticed!

Unfortunately my kitty is totally uninterested in this toy. I have had kitties in the past who would have loved it. I will find someone with a kitty that will enjoy it.

fun puzzle toy

This was very helpful at both stimulating my curious sassy kitty who is always hounding for treats as well as helping slow down her roll so she could eat more methodically. Now I can holler "want your puzzle?" before leaving for work and she comes running for her treat game while I go to work knowing she's happy and unstressed. (Her brother however has zero interest, but food is not his love language, pats are!) If you have a food lover, this is a great starter puzzle. I can already see upgrading to the harder ones also made by Petstages.

My Cat Can't Get Enough

My cat can't get enough, and now begs for the puzzle every morning.

Fun for a Food-Motivated Cat

This does the trick in slowing down my gluttonous fat cat when feeding treats and gives him something to do. In his old age, he doesn't get exercise or entertainment much. He'd rather lay on his blubber and reach for the toy that run around and chase it. So this has given him something "to do". He's a really smart and food-motivated cat, so it's actually quite easy for him, but my other cats find it a challenge. The only negative is the green sliders that cover the top holes do not stay up, so I can only use the black "seeds" to cover those holes.

Worked for one cat lol

I got to learn a lot about my two cats this way. My first cat who is 15yrs really loved this toy and immediately learned right away how to use it. She was able to complete the puzzle in about 30 sec. My other cat is 7yrs he could not figure it out and was only ever able to get one treat before flipping the entire puzzle out of frustration. I loved watching both of them try it out. I will have to buy the more complex puzzle for my older kitty and will have to work with my other kitty to figure this one out. Overall plz get this if you have multiple cats its fun to find out who is smarter.
