Cat lovers know that cats have their own individual characters. Their personalities are a mixture of likes and pet hates.
A lot of people think that cats don’t like to chew. They are wrong. Chewing is something they do naturally in the wild. Cats learn to chew their prey to get the food that they need to eat to stay alive.
It’s a behavior that cats have readily adapted for their lives as pets. Indeed, your pet moggy is very happy to chew on everything from a plastic bag and wires to pieces of wood and even certain types of fabrics, like blankets, shoes, and sofas.
You will find there are a huge number of cat chew toys on the market. Many of them are there that encourage your pet to gain healthy teeth and gums. The benefits of the best cat chew toys include:
Relieving teething problems: Kittens often suffer the discomfort of teething. To save them from the pain of chewing on things like chairs, tables, wardrobes, and doors, you can better alleviate the problem with a cat chew toy made of soft, non-toxic rubber.
Saving your furniture: To stop our cats scratching and chewing our favorite items it’s recommended to buy a good chew toy. They love the colorful designs and will play continuously with eye-catching toys. Soft rubber balls with ringing bells inside are particularly popular.
Enhancing oral hygiene: Many cats have oral hygiene issues. Chew toys are a great help in keeping our cats’ teeth clean and healthy. Chewing on a toy is like your cat using a toothbrush. Just by playing in this way your pet will be scraping off the harmful plaque that can cause gum disease. Another benefit of chew toys is they lead to fresher breath.
Entertaining: When your cat has a good chew toy it will not only keep them occupied but it is bound to put a smile on your face too. Share the enjoyment by playing with your cat and throwing their rubber ball or another toy.
Relieving boredom: Just like us, our pets suffer boredom. But unlike us, our cats are not able to while the time away by watching TV or fiddling with their smartphones. Being cooped up indoors all day is not much fun for anyone—our pets included. If your cat lacks external stimuli, he or she can get into all sorts of trouble. They can tear things, knock over your plants, become overly friendly with the goldfish, and drive you up the wall with constant meowing. This where chew toys come in giving our lovable furballs something interesting with which to occupy their claws, their teeth and their time.
What is certain is that good cat chew toys do make our pets much less fidgety and stave off boredom. They also make our pets a lot easier to handle.
