Cork Cat Toys

Next time you open that bottle of wine, remember to save the wine corks. Who would have thought you could make a toy with them? For this fun cork cat toy you’re going to need some corks, glue and trimmings like jute and feathers. First, you’ll need to steam the corks to soften them up and then you can poke a hole through the middle with your scissors. Bunch together the trimmings and use some glue to secure them together. Next, pour the glue inside the cork and insert the trimming. Once it’s completely dry, give it to your cat and let them run wild!

Scratching Post

Cats love scratching things, especially new and expensive furniture. A scratching post is a great way to prevent your furniture from being ruined, but it’s also good for your cat’s health. It’s a great way for them to get exercise and keep their claws in good shape. Instead of spending a fortune on one, try to make your own. This DIY Scratching Post requires some extra effort and quite a few items, but it’s worth it -- especially if your cat is going to love its new toy.

Felt Mouse Toys

Surprise your kitty with a new handmade felt mouse! This is your chance to get crafty and really spoil your furry friend. All you need is wool felt, cat nip, embroidery thread, stuffing and twine for the tail. The instructions are simple, but you’ll need to download the PDF for step-by-step instructions.

Pom Pom Wand

To make a Pom Pom Wand, all you really need is a wooden rod, yarn, glue, scissors, string and pom-poms. The idea is simple: attach hanging yarn and pom-poms to a rod and have your cat go nuts chasing it. You can make it as simple or as elaborate as you want. For detailed instructions, check out this tutorial for a DIY Pom Pom Cat Wand.
