A cat surrounded by toys.

The holidays are approaching, and that means it’s time to start shopping for the pets in your life. With so many toys on the market today, choosing which ones are best can be challenging.

Here’s a list of trending pet toys sure to delight the furry friends in your life.

Tennis Ball Launcher for Dogs

Tennis ball launcher toys have become wildly popular over the past few years. They’re great for dogs who love games of fetch (and who doesn’t?). Plus, they’re really fun to watch!

Make sure to get one with adjustable distance settings so you can set it up perfectly for your dog’s needs. You can even get an automatic launcher that can be used with different-sized balls for smaller and larger breeds.

Kong Dog Toys

Kong dog toys are among the most popular on the market, and for good reason! They’re made of durable rubber material that can stand up against your dog’s chewing, so they won’t break apart like other toys. The Kong Classic has an opening that allows you to stuff treats inside, so your pup will love trying to get them out! They’re also dishwasher-safe and recyclable.

Cat Apartments

Cat apartments provide your feline friend extra space, privacy, and mental stimulation. Cat apartments can be attached to the wall or used as standalone pieces of furniture. They come in various sizes, configurations, and colors to fit any decor. Some incorporate a scratching post and cozy spaces for your cat to nap.

If you have more than one cat, consider getting them a larger shared apartment so they can lounge together while they watch the world go by from their high perch.

Automatic Laser Light Toy for Cats

What cat can resist the classic laser mouse? Taking the concept a step further, automatic laser light cat toys come with a remote control that allows you to set the time intervals between laser beams. The automatic laser lights on these toys typically turn off automatically after 15 minutes of continuous playtime.
