If you adopted a kitty this past year, you’re certainly not alone. There was a tremendous surge in adoptions, beginning last March (for obvious reasons), which has been great news for animals in need of fur-ever homes. Additionally, according to a Shelter Animals Count report, shelter intake rates have decreased drastically this year. This is a bit of beautiful news in an otherwise rough year.
As for your cat, you probably learned quickly that keeping her entertained and out of trouble is an ongoing (somewhat delightful) challenge. So we want to let you in on a little secret that keeps feline friends busy and happy—a bestseller on the pet-supplies site Chewy that cat parents love.
It’s the Petstages Tower of Tracks, and it’s on sale right now at a radically reduced price. Normally $25, this clever toy is currently available for just $11. It’s a big favorite among cat parents—because it delights and intrigues cats of all ages, from tiny kittens to older, wiser senior cats.
Here’s just one review: “My sister's cat is a picky old man. I bought this on a whim for him and brought it over at the next family party. He loved it. It takes a lot for him to wake up and get out of his comfy chair, and this got him out and playing in minutes. I would recommend this to any cat owner!”
Well-designed, and thrilling for cats
The three-tier tower is six inches tall and 9.75 inches wide. It comes with three colorful balls, one for each level. They securely spin around the tracks, providing cats with an infinite thrill-of-the-chase. The tower has a non-slip base pad and a small safety bar across the top tier—an improvement new to this model.
Cat owners love the fact that the balls stay within the confines of the tower. Says one: “Both my kittens love this toy! The bonus is that the balls never get lost under furniture.”
Also a plus—this popular toy is easy to wipe clean, and a joy for multiple cats to share. Says a buyer: “I bought this for my foster kittens. It's great because it's non-porous (easy to sanitize). With the three levels, all five of them can play with it at once without stepping on each other too much, like they do with more independent toys.”
Another happy reviewer has this to say: “I was searching for something that would occupy my cat (just under a year old, male) that he couldn’t lose under the furniture. He was getting a bit destructive when I couldn’t keep up with fishing cat nip mice and plastic balls from under the furniture. He loves this thing! Had it about a week now and it’s been a hit since it came out of the package.”
Pure joy for little kitties, and soothing for older cats
Whether you have a playful kitten, an older cat or one with a disability, the Petstages Tower of Tracks is a hit among felines.
Explains one experienced cat parent, “Kittens love to climb on this as well as play with the ball in each track. Keeps them busy and happy. I have three of these and will be ordering more in the future. Reason being, I have noticed lately (this past year) some of my geriatric cats (who don't have a lot of pep) will lie down next to one and just pat at the ball. Within ten minutes they are up playing gently with it for about another five minutes. Rekindles their younger play instinct.”
For $11, you can’t really go wrong.“This is by far one of my baby's favorite toys,” writes a happy shopper. “It's one of those toys that she can casually lay down and barely tap at when she is tired, but it is also one of those toys that makes her want to run around it and attack from different angles. It's so fun watching her get excited over this toy. No matter what we play with, she always comes back to the tower.”
