300 133 playing-catQ.      I want to buy some toys for my two cats but I am worried that some of the pet toys sold in shops are not safe.  What should I be looking for?

A.     Major things to look out for in a toy are:

  • sturdiness - shouldn't be able to come apart;
  • nothing linear (ie string) that the cat could swallow and get tangled in the intestines;
  • should be too big to get stuck in the throat  or swallowed and
  • should not be made of a toxic material.  Real catnip is always a safe bet.
