You don’t have to dish out all your dollars to make your four-legged friend happy! Just repurpose some materials destined for the trash into your pet’s new favorite plaything!
Cat Puzzle Toy
To make this cat puzzle toy, cut holes in the top of a disposable food container with a utility knife. If you want to make it softer on the kitty’s paws, you can burn the edges of the holes with a lighter. Fill the container with catnip toys, balls, and treats that your cat will go crazy for. Close the container and leave the rest to the kitty’s brain.
T-Shirt Cat Toys
You can make these easy DIY T-shirt cat toys if you can tie your shoes! Cut old tees into three-inch-by-ten-inch rectangles (the more colorful the better). Simply tie them together in a knot! Don’t you think it’s simple?
For Curious Canines
Socks for Snacking
You’ll need two pairs of socks as well as some dog treats. Place the treats in one sock, roll it up, and pop it inside the other sock to seal it. Your dog will be entertained for hours trying to reach the hidden treats.
Sneak a Peak
Find an empty cereal box and some dog treats and you’re good to go. Tape up the old box with your dog treats inside. Cut some small holes in It and smear some peanut butter inside – they’ll have a blast trying to get their tongues through the holes and get everything out!
Ball Tug Toy
To make this dog toy, you’ll need an old T-shirt, a tennis ball, and a pair of scissors. Simply lay your shirt flat and cut three strategically placed cuts across it. Wrap the ball inside two of the pieces. To cinch the toy together, use the smallest piece of the shirt. Braid the remaining pieces of fabric into strips.
