You can get safe cat toys from a pet store, like balls with or without bells inside (just make sure the toys are too big to become a choking hazard). Some cats really appreciate sisal-wrapped stands, too. Other cats like softer toys that they can dig their claws into. Cats seem to love "fishing pole toys" that include a fake bird or mouse at the end of a string. Just make sure the fake critters are durable and have any small plastic pieces like eyes removed.
