One thing about cat shows that people don’t think about is that they’re a fun place to buy cat toys! You’ll find cat toys there you won’t find anywhere else. Often they are handmade. And they are usually pretty compact, because people with cats that are competing use them to keep up their enthusiasm between rings. Over the years, my human has bought me some pretty unique cat show cat toys. Sadly, she has also lost quite a few of them! Like literally, we’d come home from a cat show, and she’d discover she left one at the show hall or hotel room. But she managed to hang onto the pile you see here, and I’ll show some of them to you today.
You saw me playing with this one in my Fitbit post. And I do love it a lot! It’s just a tiny bug-like toy on a wire attached to a stick, but I get so excited over it!
You’ve seen this one before too. Often, the cat show cat toys will be themed to match the holiday, if it is a holiday show. So it’s obvious my human got this one around Christmas.
I think this pretty, sparkly butterfly was a gift. It’s a little fragile — in fact, the wings have a couple of tears from me biting them. So it doesn’t come out very often.
The dragonfly is similar to the butterfly. They are both actually decorative clips that got made into cat toys.
And then there is one of my very favorite cat toys…
Yep, this guy! My human has no idea which cat show he came from. But I love it! I can’t wait for the shows to have vendors and attendees again, so my human and I can get back to all the fun.
Have you ever shopped for cat toys at a cat show? Or thought of shopping at one? Let me know in the comments!
