    Mine are:

    Best = Da bird toys, feathers, mice whatever they will play with all of them.

    Worst = Banana leaf cat tree, we have had it two months and my two cats have been on it rarely. I've put favourite treats on it, toys on it, cat nip on it, feliway on it. No interest, is this a BSH thing?

    It might be. Thomas likes all four feet on the ground. I think it is a BSH thing.

    The best buy has to be his tunnel and cubes,although the cubes have been replaced many times :rolleyes:

    Worst buy a lovely ,warm,soft,furry ,igloo bed (well I thought it was) ;) For a cat who loves to crawl inside things he took an instant dislike to this and has not set one paw in it :( Mind you the radiator bed comes a close second:rolleyes:

    Best buys: Intelligence food toys (I know, I know, could have knocked me over with a feather when my thickos actually used them!), Trixie door dangler, orange cubes, raw food. Worst buys, Catit track (so sad to admit this as they do have periods where they love it, but not enough), cat beds initially, Ecoverde litter.

    Best - Banana Leaf cat tree to sleep on and the Trixie Cat Cheese Corner - but only because of the cheap looking mouse which gets carried everywhere. Nicer mice are ignored :D

    Worse - any kind of proper bed including Whiskers Cat Head Bed, Radiator Bed, Felt cat den and a Siberian Pet Bed (I've learnt my lesson finally) :(

    Best Buys: Kong Kickeroos - both cats adore them.

    Worst buy: James Wellbeloved dry cat food - they won't touch it. All was not lost, however, as the huge box it shipped in was greeted with great enthusiasm as a bed!

    I love how this thread offers someone absolutely no help whatsoever when trying to decide what to get their cats :D :D :rolleyes:

    Just goes to show they're all so different! I REALLY want to get some new things for when Pipistrelle comes home because I'm not kitted out nearly enough for a kitten. I just wish there was a way you could trial different things first. A cat tree is such an investment, especially cos we'd also bolt ours to the wall.

    I was thinking about a radiator bed cos I'm sure my cats have used one in the past. I also really want one of the toys I saw at the breeder's friend's house. It's a pole with a feather poof at the end, but then three little plastic hands that clap together inside. It made a great noise but I can't find it anywhere for sale.

    Best Buys: Play tunnel- she loves it and will spend as long as you've got chasing things through it.
    Water fountain- never seen her drink so much!

    Worst Buys: Kong Kickeroo- wont touch it, wont play with it. I don't think she's bothered about catnip to be honest.
    Bozita, Grau and AC- Bozita gave her the runs. Grau and AC are ignored, walked away from and given 'the look'. I have a nice box full of the stuff to take to the shelter at xmas now :rolleyes:

    Best buy: Alicante cat tree. They play on it or sit on it every day and it makes a great podium for posing for pics

    Worst buy: kitty lake. Simba (Turkish Van, supposed to love water), hoiks the toys out and drops them dripping wet onto my foot in the lounge. Leila just won't entertain it at all!
