Support Our Locally Owned Pet Shop with Your Order of Balls for Cats
Cats love toys. If you were to close your eyes and think back on your happiest times with your cat, chances are that the images that come to mind are your cat(s) playing. Hunting, pouncing, overpowering, and hitting toys around offers cats and their people tons of joy - so why do cats so often dismiss the toys we bring home for them?
There is one very practical rule to remember when buying toys for cats: cats want a variety of toys. They like a variety of interactive cat toys that use each of their hunting skills. If you have enough toys, you can rotate your cat's options so they can search for a preferred toy. Just don't hide a favorite toy away permanently. Ensure that your cats have opportunities to play with all of their toys frequently.
What are the kinds of cat toys? Here are just a few:
Balls and chasers entice your cat to chase with feathers, fun noises, and unique shapes.
Chew toys are a great choice for cats that enjoy to chew. They also help to keep your cat's breath fresh and their teeth clean.
Interactive and electronic toys bring out the best in your cat's hunting skills.
Plush and mice toys eventually are treasured toys that can calm and ease your cat when it's time to go into the carrier.
Scratcher posts and mats are a must for all ages of cats, from kittens to more mature cats.
Teasers and wands are terrific toys for sharing playtime with your cat.
Tunnels become the hiding places where you can easily find your cat.
And variety packs help make sure your cat always has a fun toy.
Cats like toys that are light and small enough to be smacked without a lot of effort. They also like toys that are small enough to be grasped. And their favorite toys are objects they can interact with in several different ways.
When you are searching for toys for your cat, you need to be sure they do not have any strings that could be pulled off and ingested. They need to be large enough that your cat won't try to eat them. They must be made from non-toxic materials. Little button eyes and button noses are cute, but anything that can be bitten off and swallowed is risky for your cat. Cats of all ages can be harmed by toys with sharp points and edges. At Dog Day Afternoon, we only provide toys that are safe for your cat.
You will find the toys your cat will love at Dog Day Afternoon in Belleville, IL. We have an assortment of toys to thrill every cat at prices that will excite you. Stop by today or call us with any questions.

Love supporting small business and this pet store has high quality inventory. They were so nice and knowledgeable. I was able to get everything I needed for my new puppy. I will 100% shop here again.
This place is a real gem. I went in the other day to buy a specific dog food to use as a treat, but it was out of stock. When I asked if they had anything similar, I was told no. BUT she showed me a different food that works well as a high value treat. She even found me a sample to try out with my dog. Both workers were friendly, and polite, and the woman I spoke with was very knowledgeable. My dog enjoyed the store, too.
Last time I went into a non-chain pet store, none of the items had a price tag, which was incredibly frustrating. This store had price stickers on the large items and cutely labeled bins for small individual items like rawhides, etc. No confusion, no asking about every product. From what I looked at, prices are comparable with Chewy, but don't require the 2-day wait on shipping. I will DEFINITELY be coming back here.
This place rocks! The staff always has their dogs in and its nice to see the friendly furry faces. The groomers they have are incredible, I was seriously impressed with their professionalism and when I came back to get my big ol pup he looked wonderful. I'll never take my dog to another groomer. I know some people have complained about the wait getting an appointment the same day they call, but I have never had an issue. They are booked a little ways out, but im glad to see such a great small business thrive.
