Laser pointers and electronic toys for cats in the Maxi Zoo online shop
Laser pointers for cats: the ultimate source of fun
Cats are playful animals that require a lot of variety and activity. Ensuring plenty of play and fun is especially important for indoor cats because their universe is very limited. House cats have only limited opportunities for acting on their hunting instincts, in particular. Appropriate toys provide variety and stimulation for your cat. A laser pointer will encourage your cat to play hunting games, for example. As soon as you project the point of bundled light onto the floor and move it around, your pet will think of it as prey. This reliably stimulates your cat’s hunting instinct. Another advantage of the toy is that you, as the owner, are involved in the action because the game only works if you participate. This interaction results in a stronger bond between you and your purring companion.
Important: cats want to be rewarded
When cats go hunting in nature, the goal is to catch and kill prey. However, when their hunting instinct is stimulated with the help of a laser pointer, this reward is missing. To make sure that your pet doesn’t feel frustrated at the end of the game, it’s very important to provide a reward. This could be a tasty snack or a rugged object like a cat pillow, which your cat can “kill” as a substitute. For the latter option, the chosen object should match the colour of the light beam.
You should also make sure to never shine the laser pointer directly into your cat’s eyes as this can result in serious eye injuries. In order to avoid this risk, playtime with the laser pointer should be limited to no more than ten minutes at a time.

Other electronic toys, like the rotating Actionball, also provide plenty of fun and variety in your house cat’s daily routine. The Actionball also has a laser function and is thus a reliable way to awaken your cat’s hunting instinct. In addition, the ball is filled with little snacks that fall out of the openings from time to time. This ensures regular rewards for your little four-legged friend’s activity.
If you want the prey to look as authentic as possible, it’s advisable to use toys that are modelled after mice or insects. These products are also equipped with rotors, and some can even be controlled remotely.
