6 Cat Toys That Dogs Also Love!
These cat toys might become your dog’s new favorite toy when it’s time to play!
Although your dog and cat are different animals, they have more in common than you might realize — namely their favorite toys! According to Petplace.com, it is perfectly safe for dogs to play with cat toys as long as they are properly supervised. Since cat toys may be smaller than your dog’s normal toys, you need to make sure they do not become a choking hazard. You also have to be careful of small toys or squeakers that your dog might swallow, which could potentially become a gastrointestinal disruption. But to be fair, toys made specifically for dogs come with those same advisories. In general, your dog should be able to safely play with some cat toys and even a little bit of catnip shouldn’t hurt him. Some dogs even like catnip, with owners reporting that the herb has a calming effect on their pups.
While every pet is different, most cats and dogs enjoy games that let them chase and pounce. Both animals are natural predators, and they love toys and games that let them use their natural hunting instincts. They also love any type of play time that allows them to spend one-on-one time with their pet parents. Naturally, this leads to some overlap in favorite toys.
