We love to play with our pets. But sometimes, I just wish my dog could keep herself amused, especially when I have a looming deadline and can’t spare the time to play with her. The problem is to keep her interested in the toy, without any interaction from me.
The Unpredictable Moving Dog Ball is a great interactive pet toy. This motorized Ball is about 3 inches in diameter and is hard plastic. Put in one AA battery (battery is not included with purchase) then push the on button and away goes the ball in a zigzag unpredictable motion. If it hits an obstacle it changes direction. Keeps your pet amused and chasing it for ages. It comes in two halves that screw together so the likelihood of her swallowing the battery is minimal.

Cats will chase just about everything including a ray of light dancing on the floor. So you know kitty will love the Incredible Motor Mouse Cat Toy. This electronic cat toy has a battery powered mouse that races around the loop, staying one step ahead of your kitty. Durable plastic toy includes carpet center for scratching and clawing. Available at Petco stores.
Cat Quest! gives your cat a chance to hone her hunting skills. Cats can stealthily sneak up on their prey, pounce, jump and bat away at the dragon fly. This battery operated toy has a dragonfly with wings that moves like a real bug. You can manipulate the bug – let it perch silently and suddenly start fluttering its wings. You can make it take off and fly. The cord is long enough that you can stay hidden if you choose. Get one for kitty at http://www.healthypets.com
