I second small rubber balls, especially if you have a hallway of some sort. My cat loves bouncy balls, to the point that he'll start panting and we'll have to put them away otherwise he'll just keep playing. We'll each stand at one end of the hallway and throw it back and forth. He likes both chasing it when it's rolled on the floor and leaping in the air when it bounces. Sometimes if there is just one of us or if he's bored and we're busy, he'll even play fetch!

Also if you cat likes catnip I highly recommend Yeowww brand. My cat went crazy just at the box before it was even open! He loves the banana and rainbow (though I did have to reinforce the stitching in the arches a bit). As another way to play is to take a small box (shoe box works well) and put it over a toy (both the capnip toys and bouncy ball work well for us). Our cat will keep pouncing and pushing it around with his nose until he finally gets the toy.

My cats are in agreement that chasing DaBird is a waste of
perfectly good nap time. However, if I would just agree to
let one of those real birds out -- the talking ones that live
in my home office (room) -- my sweet little kitties all promise
they would chase THAT bird until it chases no more. Even with
four sets of Puss eyes begging, I can tell you this is NOT going
to happen. It's DaBird or nothing, I tell them.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile.

Just and idea my cat use to like to chase hair scruchii's you know the little small fuzzy ones? I would by a pack at the dollar store. Flip them towards her so they go up in the air. My cat use to love it she would do flips and went crazy. Also you can flip paper wads at her. Good luck.

Thanks for all your suggestions, I really appreciate it! Since money is a bit tight right now (I'm a college student) I have to work with what I got. Today, after realizing that every time I've come home the rug in my room was all screwed up, I finally understood that my baby likes to "chase" thing hiding under the rug! So I put Da Bird under the rug and she went bananas! This should keep her satisfied for quite some time I hope!

Thanks again and when I have the available funds I will purchase some of these toys.
