Q: Any good toys for a visually impaired cat?

I am fostering a cat who is visually impaired, he has 80-90% loss of vision. He seems like he is less active than the other cats, but does play with toys occasionally and plays on the cat tree. Do you know of any toys, etc...that would be stimulating for him and get him a little more active?

My cousin adopted a cat that is totally blind. I was amazed when I went to her house, and he played and played. He would follow my fingers on the chair. He likes toys with feathers, his hearing is go acute. He sits in front of the patio door and "watches" but I think it would be more like "listening". he plays with balls, catnip toys. but the important thing is he plays like any normal cat.

I would try something that makes noise and moves.

My cats love "kick sticks." They are cat nip scented and are like a plush stuffed animal in the shape of a log. KONG makes a great one with a feather on the end. My cats go nuts for the thing and with a visually impaired cat you could just set it next to them for playtime. I found mine at a small pet store but I am sure Petsmart/Petco will have some.
