Our Top 5 Picks for Cats this Holiday Season
Cat Exercise Wheel by One Fast Cat
The One Fast Cat Exercise Wheel is the perfect gift for moderate- to high-energy cats. To train your cat to use the exercise wheel, use a treat to coax him or her into the wheel and watch as your cat begins walking and running after the treat. Do this for a little while and, before you know it, your cat will be using the wheel like a pro without the aid of treats. Be advised that this is one of the larger, more expensive cat gift options. It is available at One Fast Cat.
