Homemade Cat Toys Are More Fun for the Owner Than the Pet?

Hello to the feline world of mystery

Yes they are more fun for the owner than the pet! You know why? Because it gets your creative juices flowing. If you ever wanted to make your own homemade toys for your cat your imagination is the limit when creating your own slice of fun for kitty!

You know what else is good? Its CHEAP! Think of anything lying around your house right now and guaranteed you have an idea for a homemade toy. Toilet roll's are great. What I usually do with these is just chuck it on the floor and let your cat rip it up all over your if your a clean freak you probably dont want to try this. Even the cardboard roll inside can be put to good use. Check out the videos on Youtube they give you loads of ideas.

Of course some people may think they dont wont to compromise on quality and of course homemade toys are not going to last as long as shop bought toys. I don't think you are losing out on the fun factor for your feline which is essentially what you could be thinking about in the first place right? Well then get those toilet rolls at the ready and get creative.

I stole a great idea from users of Youtube a while ago. I grabbed a cardboard box and cut holes all over the box, big enough for paw's to get through. I then put a ball inside. My cat played with this for hours trying to get the ball out! It was so funny I wished I taped it now.

I love to grab my cats stomach and shake her a little this winds her up in play mode and she grabs hold of my wrist and nibbles me. Sometimes I get irritating scratches though so now I use an old sock! My hands are safe and my cat can scratch and bite away to her delight. If you was to try this idea you could try putting a little catnip treat in the sock as well.

Got any empty pop bottles lying around the house? Wash it out and put some rice in the bottle. You then screw the top on and you have your own cat rattle (a little noisy) but it works in keeping kitty occupied for a while. I've given you just a few ideas you can start with. I won't outline too many because my fingers will drop off and you will fall asleep. If you would like more idea's check out Youtube and Google.

Thanks for reading and good luck in your search.
