#2 – Lunge Clicker

Okay, this is technically for horses, BUT attach a mouse or feather to the end of the lunge line, and you can click your cat and then reward him with play all in one device. Keep your other hand free for signals or treats. Horseloverz.com

#5 – Treat and Train

While this product is marketed toward dogs, there is no reason why you can’t use it for your cat. You can use it to teach your cat to target certain areas, or reward him from far away (maybe you are working on a stay or “go to bed” behavior, for example). Even better, reward him when he choose to scratch his cat tree, instead of your couch. Amazon.com
