DIY Kitty Toys

Kitties have some absolutely adorable qualities. These frisky furballs love to play, and their frolicking is almost as fun for us to watch as it is for them! While it’s important that you provide your furry pal with suitable entertainment options, you don’t have to spend a fortune on Kitty’s entertainment. Below, a Liovnia, MI vet offers options for DIY cat toys.

Cat House

This is a great project for kids to do on a rainy day. First, you’ll need several cardboard boxes. You can cut doors and windows into the boxes to make them look like little houses. For a higher house, cut the bottom out of one box, and stack it on top of another. There’s really no limit to how far you can go with this. Some people make their furballs elaborate kitty castles, complete with towers and turrets!

Catnip Mice

Have you ever considered growing your own catnip? If your furball enjoys this herb, as many of our feline friends do, you can save quite a bit of money by growing it yourself. Fill a few baby socks with catnip, and sew them closed. Presto!

Plastic Bottle

Take a plastic water bottle, and cut a few holes in it. Next, fill it with kitty treats. As Fluffy bats it around, chances are, treats will fall out of it.

Tee Shirt Kitty Cave

This one is easy, and very popular among our feline friends! All you need is a wire coat hanger and an old tee shirt, and you can make Fluffy a cheap and durable little kitty cave.


To make Fluffy a hammock, simply measure an old tee shirt, towel, or blanket. Cut the corners so that they form ties, or attach Velcro straps. Then, fasten each corner to the leg of an end table. Voila!

Window Perch

You’ll need to gather a few things for this one, but you shouldn’t have to spend very much. Get a sturdy dinner tray, some brackets, and a pillow. Use the brackets to attach the tray to the windowsill, and then put the pillow on it.

These are just a few ideas for DIY cat toys. You’ll find many more online. Of course, Fluffy may be perfectly happy to play with a paper grocery bag.
