.. Woolly cat toys continued

 

Comfortable bedding & something to play with can make a huge difference to animals. As well as this, many cats & kittens become quite attached to their bedding or toys. Heres how to make your own familiar toys, any time you need a new one.

See the beginning of Instructions for making cat toys on the previous page.

 


 

Note: Cats can tire of their toys if they are always laying around. It is a good idea to limit their availability, try putting toys away & only getting them out from time to time, so the novelty remains.

 

 

 

Why wool?

Wool is a natural material that cats often respond well to. Sometimes the smell of synthetic material can deter a sensitive nose or a nervous disposition. The smell of clean wool often seems to have a comforting effect, & often initiates play instincts.

 

 

 

Never give balls of wool for kittens or cats to play with, never leave them laying around!

Animals can become dangerously entangled in lengths of any material, the toys described on this page are a safe alternative woolly toy.
