Cat Toys You Can Make
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Sometimes my cat reminds me of a child - I buy her a toy and she would rather play with the box... what a waste of money! So I decided to have a go at making my own cat toys that my furry friend would rather play with and saves me from getting my wallet out and wasting even more money.

Cats love to 'chase' objects around, literally anything they can get there paws on...when I moved my fridge once I found my watch and various other small objects under it so apart from not leaving my jewellery on the kitchen bench I decided to make my cat a toy using an old vitamin bottle, I put some beads in, being careful to make sure the lid was properly closed and my cat loved her new little jingle toy, plus it was big enough not to roll under my fridge!

Another good toy to make is a 'sock toy', I took an old pair of socks, tied them together in the middle and cut all four corners to create a string like effect, my cat loves to play with this toy - rolling in into it and clawing away.

Cats love 'Prey' and there are a heap of toys you can make for this. I tied a piece of string to an end of a garden cane and I dangle it over my cat and she loves to try and grab it - I do this on the garden lawn and can spend ages playing with this toy, I'm not sure who is more tired by the end, me or the cat!

There are other ways you can entertain your cat without actually making anything - place a mirror in front of your cat as most cats will interact with them and can spend ages in front of the mirror - Note, not all cats interact with a mirror so make sure you do not frighten them when you first place the mirror in front of them. Another way to entertain kitty is by blowing bubbles, cats love to chase bubbles.

To prevent your animal from becoming inactive and uninterested in there toys, switch out new toys for them to play with every few days and when not in use, store your toys in a safe location so you know where to find them.

The above cat toys I find really good as you can always replace them when they become worn and cost next to nothing.
