Keep Your Cats Occupied, Make Them Some Cat Toys

Saturday, April 25, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

Cats love to play but purchasing a variety of cat toys can get expensive. We are limiting our visits to stores during this Coronavirus situation.  So why not make your own? A tightly wadded ball of paper,an empty toilet paper tube, a ping pong ball or a brown paper bag are some of the simplest cat toys.  If you want to put a little more effort into it, tie three feet of string onto a stick and dangle it like a fishing pole. I used the plastic ring on a milk carton and attached it to a piece of string and it became my cat’s favorite toy.  You can also make a cat nip toy out of the top end of an old sock.  Just cut it off at the heel, put in some cat nip and stitch it closed. A plastic bottle with a secure lid can be partially filled with rice to make a rolling rattle.  Figure out what your cat likes, get creative and make sure that you always supervised her playtime when you make the toys.

Remember, your pets count!
