Yep! Toys for cat sitting, too! When I sit a kitty, they get a couple of new toys, and those toys really do need to be NEW! I never give a cat a toy that has been used by another cat. There are many reasons for this, including disease and jealousy.
I rub the toy to get my scent on it, so the cat will come to me and get used to me. The cat also realizes that I'm not a bad person, and I'll be there to play. That always helps to reduce the loneliness and they toys reduce the boredom while they wait for me.
