Just curious because while our yellow Lab grandpup is crazy for tennis balls, our Golden doesn't have anything to do with tennis balls, but loves his rag bone. Princess, our cat will enjoy one thing one day and then totally ignores it the next. Right now, she favors her collapsible tunnel and the ping pong balls in the bathtub.

My Mona adores her Orca jack--it's looks like a giant child's jack and is about 6 inches wide and her blue Orka tubes with ropes that hang out. Orka makes soft blue plastic products that are pliable. Of course, since she's a mastiff, she chews off large chunks but that gives her lots of pleasure. She also loves to rip apart dog toys with squeakers in them but that takes her about 10 minutes max--she only gets them when they are on super special!

Timetosew, What a great topic - thanks for posting it.
Well, have to say that most of our furry kids aren't into store-bought toys except the cat laser light - that one they do love. Instead, they mostly like creating their own toys from everyday household items - packing material, boxes, sacks, pieces of cardboard (both small and large) that can be "packed" and made into a "fort" from which they can attack one another. No worries, no damage done ~ they roll and jump and then run back to play the game all over again!
Haystack's latest "favorite toy" is something unusual - ice cubes! We have an automatic door dispenser that sometimes drops a cube or two after we have used it.
Haystack will jump up and swing from side to side, batting at it to get it out. When it finally pops out, she tackles it and is sure she is the best Ice Hockey player ever. When the others challenge her, she grabs the ice cube in her mouth and runs upstairs to hide it in her "cache" and then always accuses me of stealing it when it "disappears...."
When June adopted me at the county animal shelter, sister gave me a LOAD of cat toys that her two (trapped as teeny ferals) apparently were bored with. Two of those round wheel things with a ball inside... one with corrogated center for scratching. A few small stuffed "mice" and a bunch of other stuff. The little mice... she ADORES after being generously smooshed in cat nip... pretty darn entertaining to me, too. I'll find the soft toys in a different place almost every morning... QUIET play while I'm sleeping? She'll periodically go at those wheel things during the night... briefly waking me up to determine what that NOISE is??
Pesky squirrels & chipmunks keep her occupied when they're out on deck. She's INSIDE but stil stalks up to screen door. They're either really STOOPID or completely get that they're totally safe.
Sometimes shoe laces infatuate her... makes it a challenge to tie sneakers!?!
