You might not know this but for pets, toys are not just luxury. Actually, our furry friends see them as a necessity. That’s why they refuse to give up on their favorite stuff toys even when their owner is snatching it from them. 

What happens is that dogs and cats develop a sense of comfort with their toys and thus, they don’t want to get separated from it. We assume that you might know this. But what you don’t know is that toys help pets from not developing certain kinds of behavioral problems. That’s right! 

Soft plushies are not just a comfy place for dogs and cats but also for hedgehogs, horses, raccoons, and many other animals. Wait.. you don’t believe that? No worries because we have got some proof. 

Scroll down and have a look at these cuties who are in love with their soft plushies.

#2 Hedgehog With Plushie

We have talked to Ingrid King. He is the author of five cat books and a former veterinary hospital manager. He says that “keep fishing pole toys out of your cat’s reach when they’re not in use. Cats can become entangled in the string, or even eat and swallow it, which can cause an intestinal blockage’.

“Don’t let cats play unsupervised with electronic toys that have moving parts. Depending on the toy, paws and whiskers may get caught in the mechanism and your cat may be injured, or at the very least, traumatized.”
