Instead of paying big money for cat toys that are made with questionable materials, make your own from bits of string that are so fun for your kitty. We saw this smart idea on Pinterest and had to try them ourselves. These balls of excitement only take a few minutes to make for hours of cat play. Made with cotton or wool string, the homemade cat toys are safe, and you can make a big collection to share with your kitty or give as gifts to your other cat lady friends.

What You'll Need:

  • Cotton or wool string
  • Scissors

Directions:

  1. Start by selecting a type of string and holding the end in the palm of your hand. Wrap the string around and around your hand, looping it at least 50 times.

  1. Now slide the looped string off your hand and tie around the center with a length of string.
  1. Work your scissors through the looped sides of the string and cut, creating the pom-pom kitty toy.
  1. Cut the other half of the looped string and trim around the pom-pom as needed. Make several so your feline has a toy for every room in your house.
