Ten Great Toys

That you probably have in your home right now

Flick Dot Buzz Cat ideas 1

Muffin Tin

Put a few treats in some of the cups of the muffin tin, and then fill them with small cat-toys, so the treats are hidden. Kitty will happily rummage around to dig out the treats, and rediscover some forgotten toys in the process.

Flick Dot Buzz Cat Tips 2

Sheet of newspaper or tissue paper

Lay the sheet out on the floor, and if kitty isn't interested right away, you can toss a toy (or a treat) underneatn the paper to get the action started. Best to use white or undyed tissue paper.

Twig or a small stick

You can harvest a wild stick or twig, just be cautious about pesticides/herbicides - wash if you're not sure. Kitty might not fetch the stick, but if you slide it along the floor, she'll probably chase it!

Long grass stem

Almost as much fun as string, and safe for kitty to eat too - try dragging it along the floor then whipping it out of kitty's reach just when she gets close.

Flick Dot Buzz Cat Tips 5

Empty tissue box

Wow, a box with a paw-sized opening, how do you like that? Stick a few treats into an empty tissue box, add a few balls or toys, and see if kitty can fish out the treats - good for dexterous paws!

Crumpled up cash register receipt

Go on, clean out your wallet, your accountant doesn't need all of those receipts - crumple a few of them up and let kitty chase them!

Egg Carton

Less challenging then the muffin tin, unless you leave the lid on... try hiding a few treats inside a clean cardboard egg carton, and see if kitty can get them out.

Flick Dot Buzz Cat Tips 8

Empty box

Any box that's much bigger than a tissue box will do just fine - open up the top and lay the box on it's side, for a cat-cave, or let kitty jump in the top - you can open both ends for a cat tube, or cut doors and paw-sized holes. We've said it before and we'll say it again, kitties LOVE boxes!

Flick Dot Buzz Cat Tips 9

Paper Bag

Careful of the kind with handles, plain paper bags work best - you can roll the edge to make it hold it's shape better, and be easier for kitty to find her way in - or put some nip inside.

Flick Dot Buzz Cat Tips 10

Toilet paper tube

Either whole, or cut into rings, depending on your cats batting and chasing preferences.
