My cat doesn't play with toys anymore. How to keep her playful?
My 1.5 year old cat

has stopped caring about playing with basically any toy that she use to go absolutely insane over. Now I wave a toy, and she might bat at it for 1/2 a second, then go about her day. I've tried some new typical feathers & strings at the pet store, and she'll play with it for a day, then get bored and deem it not worth her attention. She barely even acknowledges the fabled laser pointer! Any tips on toys or techniques to get her playful again? This is my first cat, and I'm not sure if I'm screwing something up or if this is typical?
She also doesn't seem to care about catnip.
FWIW, she's not lashing out in other ways you sometimes see with cats like clawing my legs when I walk by or being more psychotic that your usual house cat.
