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.

Mouse Toy

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!

Knotted Ball

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.
