Inexpensive toys for your cats

It is not necessary to spend a fortune at the pet store to please your cat's playful streak. Some of the most popular toys are freebies or home-made. Try out some of the following on your favorite feline.

  • Lightweight items for the "catch and kill" game, such as balled-up tissue or waxed paper.
  • Plastic rings that hold down the lids of plastic milk jugs--great for sliding along the kitchen floor.
  • A couple of ping pong balls in the bathtub--purrfect for feline raquetball.
  • The centers of toilet paper, tape, and calculator rolls, empty plastic film containers, nuts in their shells--all useful for batting practice.
  • Cotton socks of varying sizes stuffed with cotton balls and catnip and tied at the end.
Cats love hide-outs. From time to time let your cat explore a paper grocery bag (without handlers) or a cardboard box. Never let your cat play in a plastic bag due to the danger of suffocation.
