Most of us assume that cats are more intelligent than dogs; probably because dogs drool and cats present themselves as far more refined. However, medical and scientific studies prove dogs are the more intelligent creature. For that reason, we need to get our cats to step up their game, and these toys are designed to do just that.

From simple toys that teach cats the importance of good health and the dangers of obesity to toys that your cat can learn to use on its own, each one of these is a great, inexpensive and fairly small item you can take home and allow your cat to play with when you’re just a little bit busy living your life.
