Chew toys for cats?

I haven't dealt with this before since none of my other cats have been chewers. Chloe LOVES to chew on things. I just ran her out of the play room because she was chewing on my daughter's My Little Pony. So, on to my questions. Are rubber chew toys for dogs ok to give to a cat?Should I get her one or should I just try to teach her not to chew? Will giving her a chew toy make her think she can chew on anything she wants? I never thought I'd have to deal with this with a cat!

the only things my cats have ever chewed on was/is plastic. dont know why but they love to chew on plastic so we have to keep an eye out and do not leave any lying around.

My vet gave me some cat chews that are good for their teeth. I'll look up what they're called when I get home.

I believe they have a kitty kong. I swear i bought one years ago. Not sure if they would chew it the way dogs do though.

What my vet gave me for healthier teeth is CET chews. They're flavored (I think the ones they gave me are chicken flavored) and, of course, edible.

Here's a link to what they are, I'm sure you can shop around and get better prices (this is just the first link that popped up).

I tried giving Misty and Stormy soda straws to distract them from chewing on the phone cords.

They chewed up the soda straws, then chewed on my phone cords anyway.

But seriously, shop around. These seem awfully expensive.

I've given my cat a small dog Greenie. It's so hard she can't chew through it, but I see teeth marks on it, so at least it's appealing to her.
