Cats are naturally playful. They play with almost every loose thread, crumpled paper, and cap bottle they can find. This makes it quite easy to make toys for them.
If you are trying to save some money from buying cat toys or you’re simply feeling crafty, World’s Best Cat Litter has several Do-It-Yourself cat toys in mind for you.
Homemade Catnip Yarn Balls
Yarn balls are irresistible for cats. So is catnip. Fuse them together and your cat will go crazy. All you need is a Styrofoam ball, yarn, catnip and glue. Cover the Styrofoam ball with glue and catnip. Then wrap the yarn around it so that it doesn’t unravel. It’s as simple as that!
Feather and String Cat Toy
If you are in for aesthetics, these elegant-looking craft is for you. Simply cut out feathers from felt paper (be sure to use good color combinations!) and attach a string and small bell. If your cat doesn’t enjoy it, it’s pretty enough to be a décor!
I’m pretty sure everyone has a sock that lost its pair somewhere. Now you can use it for your kitty! All you need to do is get that lonely sock, stuff it with something soft (maybe wrapping paper from your shoes, as it makes a crunchy sound that catches your cat’s attention) and tie it at the end.
Homemade Toilet Paper Roll Cat Toy
Finally, you can do something with all the empty toilet paper rolls you have in the recycling bin. You can make a lot of designs out of it for your cat. One would be to make a ring ball out of the toilet paper tube.
Simply mark four 1/4 –inch marks on the side of the tube. Cut each ring. Then insert the first ring into the second ring, then the third into the first two and finally the fourth, until you have formed a ball. Place a small treat inside.
