Cat owners know that not all expensive cat toys you buy from a pet shop are popular with cats. To keep a cat entertained, you may just need a piece of paper or a simple cat toy that you can do yourself. DIY cat toys are great things you can make for your cat and that allow you to be creative. Here is a felt DIY cat toy that you can easily make in an hour.
A felt cat toy is lightweigh and soft. It allows a cat to put claws into it and catch it. When you play with your cat with a cat toy, let the cat catch ir and keep it for some time. Don’t pull it away from a cat straight away. Catch and release – this is a cat’s tactic. Below is an instruction on how to make a felt cat toy inspired by Martha Stewart.
You can watch a video on Martha Stewart’s web site on how she did that.
Once the felt cat toy is ready, drag it along the floor to inspire the cat. You can hang the cat toy somewhere so the cat can jump and play with it. (I often put toys on a cat tree.)
