On the Ball: D.I.Y. Cat Toys

Wow! All the above items are PetSugar readers' great suggestions for my D.I.Y. challenge! From wrapping yarn around a satchel of catnip to adding jingle bells to existing toys, you certainly know how to please your kitties.

If your cats love found objects, try other recommendations such as tying 10 hair ties (with no metal) to a piece of yarn or cutting used gift bows into poofs as impromptu creations. As with any toy, monitor your pets when they play, paying close attention for small, broken, or loose parts. Happy crafting!

My cats LOVE balled up receipts. They like all paper, but the receipt paper is their favorite by far- there's probably 15 or 20 "lost" receipt balls under my sofa!! And one of my cats is addicted to Q-Tips as well.

My cat is obsessed with q-tips too. She also loves anything paper: business cards, receipts, etc. Anything she can pick up and move. I've even caught her playing with a pen.

I have an old scrunchy my cat loves to play with. I think that and the catnip pillow are his favorite.

I love that all those ideas are so simple, but totally entertaining to cats.

I think the funniest thing my cat has gone for is a pair of fuzzy earmuffs that I have! It's so funny to see him walking around carrying them in his mouth.
