Cats naturally have a hunting nature which has been tamed over thousands of years, making them  more domesticated and suitable to have as pets. But it’s still important for cats to be active. It keeps them stimulated, reduces the risk of obesity and can strengthen the bond between you and your pet.

Unlike dogs, however, you can’t take your cat to the local park and let them run wild. So how do you keep them active? Fortunately, there are plenty of toys out there to keep cats happy and their ‘wild’ needs fulfilled. To help you out, we’ve done some research here at Hanrob and have put together a list of our top 5 toys to keep your cat entertained and active.
