Making cat toys yourself - also for dogs II
This is part 3 of the cat or dog toy tip. We'll do an octopus if you feel like it!
a remnant not too thin fabric, about 40x40 cm. I once again used a remainder of the fleece fabric, but of course other fabrics are also possible, for example from an old shirt. In addition a ball and a piece of pretty string. I have used as a string still a rest edge of the fleece blanket. But you can also braid a thin braid of narrow strips of fabric.
For cats, I recommend a smaller ball that has a bell inside. I bought the four pieces pictured here for less than 2 euros at Kik (picture 1). In this case, I used one of the black plastic balls. This one has holes and in those I have previously stuffed catnip from the garden, smell the cats through the fabric and then they are very wild on their new toys ;-)) (Picture 2).
For dogs, I recommend a tennis ball or something similar, which hops well. With a smaller dog, I would take a squash ball, so that the dog can take him well in the muzzle.
So, it starts:
- Place the ball exactly on the center of the fabric square and hammer in it. (Picture 3)
- Tie the ball with the string. (Photo 4)
- Cut regular stripes from the edge of the fabric to the middle. (Photo 5)
- Pull well on each strip to form a tubular shape by itself. (Photo 6)
Let the cat (s) or dogs play with it - done !!
