Let them prey! The Peek-a-Prize Interactive Cat Toy features a sturdy wood construction and cat-friendly design that will provide your cat with years of enjoyment.

4) Twist n’ Treat Teaser
A new twist on Premier Pet Products original treat-dispensing cat toy teaser, now with two attachable feathers and a weighted base to create a funky bobble effect while dispensing treats. Leave the two halves twisted far apart for easier access to treats and kibble, or twist closer together for more of a challenge. $7.99. Find it at Amazon.com
5) Fling-a-ma-String Cat Toy
Winner of Best New Cat Product Award at the Global Pet Expo, the Fling-Ama-String hangs on any standard door knob and features a long string sewn to a flat elastic `conveyer belt` which is constantly rotating for non-stop kitty a-mewsment. Whether your feline is frisky or portly, the toy has two speeds to satisfy all energy levels. Find it for $24 Muttropolis.com
Remember, bored cats are unhappy cats and are prone to stress-related behavior problems. Be sure to provide your cat with plenty of activities to keep them engaged throughout the day.
