Toys or Food?

Does your cat favor toys more or food?

Sugar loves to play and Twinkie loves food. I'm split down the middle

None of mine are really toy orientated unless it's something forebidden, like my camera or phone On the other hand they love investigating new food smells, even if they don't actually eat everything.

It would depend on what you define as toys. Is it traditional toys like Da Bird or Cheese Mountain, or would balled-up aluminum foil, paper bags, boxes of any size or shape, paper bags with handles, or my three cats favorite--milk rings from around plastic milk jugs (2 gallon size) count as toys, too?

I have to say food. Although my cats certainly do like to play there are times when I'll take out certain toys and all they'll do is sit and stare at me while I'm trying to play with them. Of course excercise is really important and I usually get them chasing and pouncing with the mystery prey under the rug game. If they won't chase the toys by themselves I have to make them crawl under the rugs and dissappear.

Healthy cats are into food. It's a well known fact. Rosie gets very excited over cooked chicken, tuna fish, and wet food in general. Spotty likes to be especially affectionate in the kitchen. Why is he sometimes more affectionate in the kitchen than in the living room? And he gets excited over kitty kaviar and he loves his dry kibble. He eats wet food too but dry food is his favorite. Both of my cats also love wildside salmon treats.

When it comes to toys, I can't even begin to count how much money I spent on toys that my cats only show minimal interest in and they usually prefer only certain toys. I think most house cats are a little overweight and need to be encouraged to play more than to eat.
