Debbie

The removable pull ring of a YOP drink container.
Plain old string.
A well-crumpled ball of paper.

The beautiful (and exasperating) thing about cats is that they usually like to play with household items instead of the $8 pink catnip-filled mouse that you thought you looked tempting.

My two like anything mom calls "Don't play with that!!!" or "Give me that, you'll choke!!!"

Seriously though...they like...

small mice
feathers
string (thick like a drawstring)
empty toilet paper rolls (not really obught in a store though )
pretty much anything I jiggle around in front of them

what does this hangy toy with feathers look like? Does it fit over a door or something?

I have a wand toy with feathers that I hold on to and play with them. It's like a fishing pole.

I remember some one on the forum was given toys for their kitties at christmas I think it was. And they said they had some toy that went over the top of the door and their kitties would swat at it??

Now, if I could just rememeber who that was. LOL

TG...I hear ya about the give me that you'll chocke! LOL

I have given them the empty toilet paper rolls, but they aren't interested.

I just wanted to bring them back something special seeing as I don't leave town much and town doesn't have many neat cat toys. I even am going to look for a good litter scooper, as the ones I've found in town are crummy and break really easily!

The last time I left town was um almost 4 years ago! My son has already told me I can't fill up the car with cases of cat food this time cause they need to buy stuff too! I wish they still had their van and not a tiny car! LOL

That would have been me. I've attached a pic of the top of the toy. It has an elastic string on it. I can't remember the original toy. It has been replaced a few times. Kitties love it.

love4himies...tennis balls? really? Oh we have those. There is a tennis court across the street and quite a few land in my gardens. LOL Tegan plays with them, but I didn't know kitties like they too.

Yeti: the bird, the rabbit, my feet...... he's a "if it's moving I'm chasing it" kind of guy - I have a very small remote controlled car that he chases around forever!

Sparks: anything that dangles and bounces around or that can be dragged across the floor........

Have fun! I have to bring my husband to the pet store with me to keep myself from buying one of everything!

I found this toy that our cats love. It's about six feet of inch wide fleece attached to a plastic stick. it kind of floats down when you flick it up in the air or you can drag it along the ground. I think i got it at Zellers, but you could probably make something similar with fleece and a piece of dowel.

Bunduk- laser pointer but its been banned cuz he's too obsessive about it...also hairbands and those rubber wrist band things (like the the live strong ones). Cut one in half and he will flick it around for hours!

Onnie - Bells, likes to fetch them. Also plastic springs (cat toy).

Ooooooo the remote control car? Now I would love that. We actually had a motion mouse, that blinked and made noise and would go in the opposite direction when it hit something. But Willie kept sitting on it after he had grown up and sort of ummm burnt out the motor.

LOL...willie caught one of the fish from the fish tank so he isn't allowed in that room anymore. Only when the fish is outside in the pond for the summer.

That's a good idea! Gee I have two of those feather things, but I only thought of using them when I was attached to the other end. I like your idea!

Onster, ya know what I saw at the store today? A big lazer thingy, but it was automatic! The light moved by itself. I didn't buy it though as it was 29.00 i think and I had already spent a bunch of money by then and I was trying really hard to behave myself. LOL
