Creative Cat Toys You Can Find Around Your Home
We all know that buying toys from your local pet shop can be expensive, and after you bring it home, your cat may either turn up its nose at your offering or will tear the toy to pieces in a couple of hours. Why not save your money and entertain your cat with some of these suggestions of toys that can be made out of things you can find around your own home?
One of the things found around the home is a string, and I guarantee all cats love string. As it wiggles along the ground, moving fast and slow, it triggers your cat’s hunting mechanism and makes a great plaything. The great idea is to tie a long piece of string to a stick so you can drag it along the ground and tease your pet while sitting comfortably in a chair.
Other than the sound of pet food, nothing perks my cat's ears up like the sound of paper being rolled into a ball or even an open paper bag. A ball of paper about the size of a ping-pong ball is ideal for your cat to chase around the house. An open empty grocery bag on its side it something my cat loves. As he looks into the bag, I gently scratch on the back of the bag, and he will pounce. They will absolutely learn to love it. A similar thing to use for ball cat toys is rolled up small balls of foil.
The rope is another product from around the home and is the most versatile product you can use to make different cat toys and activities. It’s great to wrap around a post to make your very own cat scratch post and can be pinned to pieces of board to make scratchboards that can be mounted on a wall inside or out.
There are many benefits to these activities. It helps to eliminate your cat's boredom, it gives your cat exercise, it gets you up off the couch, it helps you bond with your pet, and it provides amusement for you to name a few. And it also saves you money and gets your creative juices flowing. You may be able to create other cat toys with a little im agination.These are just some of the things you can find inside your home to entertain your pet, without having to spend a lot of money on pet shops on toys and pet accessories.
