About Cat Dancer Products

In 1983 Cat Dancer was the first nationally marketed interactive cat toy (toys designed to be used by a cat and their owner simultaneously). According to a recent survey by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, 40% of all the cat toys now sold in the US are interactive in nature.

Cat Dancer is now used in millions of homes worldwide to provide house bound cats with healthy play and exercise and is singled out by veterinarians for its safe design.

Cat Dancer Deluxe is our Original Cat Dancer handheld toy packaged with a plastic paw that is to be attached to a wall to hold the toy for cats to play alone.  It is attached to the wall using Command Strips which we include in the package.  It takes just 30 seconds to install and it’s literally a snap to attach the toy for the cats to play.

Cat Dancer Pro-Model is the first toy designed to be used by a cat confined in a cage or a carrier. Our exclusive “Cage Clip’ attaches the toy to a cage or carrier to help alleviate boredom and anxiety and to help cats get a bit of movement and exercise when confined. Shorter, stiffer and faster than the regular Cat Dancer, this toy has a convenient clip on the handle that makes it easy to attach it to a carrier or cage for either transport or play. Designed to make cats leap, chase and pounce, in a cage or on the carpet, this is the most fun you can have with a cat. Perfect for rescues and shelters. A portion of the profits from the Pro-Model will be used to send toys to rescues and shelters nationwide.

Catnip Cat Dancer includes a mouse shaped handle that is impregnated with 100% catnip oil. The handle will give off the scent for a full four months after opening and is refillable.

But cats and people need variety in their toys, so we designed the Cat Charmer which is an unbreakable handle attached to four feet of colorful fleece. The attachment is made with a powerful glue and covered with a rubber collar for safety and holds the fabric to the rod securely, the fabric will tear before the joint lets go and has been tested to over 30 pounds (13.3 kilos).

For chase and fetch play we have three toys called Chasers, RingTail Chasers, Whisker ChasersBowTie Chasers and 6 pack Chaser (2 of each of the Chaser line), which are all made from the same cardboard we use on the Cat Dancer and a bit of the fleece used in the Cat Charmer. These ingredients will combine in your cat’s imagination to create irresistible play, chase and fun.

Mouse in the House is the first automatic cat toy which is designed with a timer to call your cats, and then play with them when you are not home. Our busy lifestyles often keep us away from our pets for several days at a time, this can lead to separation anxiety, overeating, laziness, obesity and even health and behavior problems. Mouse in the House is designed to provide stimulation and exercise for housecats left alone.

The Wall Scratcher is a scratching surface for cats to use to remove the outer sheath of their claws to expose the fresh healthy nail underneath.  Using Command strips which hold it securely to your wall without damaging the surface, the wall scratcher is vertical just like the trees cats use in nature.  It includes a Cat dancer toy that makes it into a play station for cats.

Cat Dancer Products is dedicated to providing fun and innovative products for you and your cats.
