Cats deserve new toys and you don’t have to wait until the holiday season to buy them. Instead, you can create these DIY cat toys with materials you probably already have lying around your house. What cat doesn’t love cardboard boxes, feathers, and balls?
Whenever we have cardboard boxes in our house our cat seems to be chilling in them. What’s it about cardboard boxes that cats love so much? Perhaps we’ll never really know, but you can create awesome cat playhouses with these boxes. Your cat will feel like they’ve got their own house, plus they make the cutest Instagram photos.
Feather Cat Toy
Chances are this is already probably one of your cat’s favorite toys; they could run around chasing after it all day. They happen to be so easy to make; most of the materials you probably already have and the ones you don’t you can purchase at any craft store. All you need is some string or shoelaces, feathers, and a bell.
If you’re crafty and you know how to sew, this is super easy to make. Just use some fabrics from old clothing or those dining room chairs you’ve been meaning to throw away and stuff it with cotton. Walla, it’s that simple!
This is another toy where you need some string and an old t-shirt. Just scrunch the shirt into a ball and tie it to some string. Let the string hang from the doorknob and your cat will have so much fun tapping and pouncing at the ball.
