Favorite free cat toy
So I'm sitting here...reading CF and enjoying not being at work and I hear this odd noise behind me. "Shhhhiiiingggg, shink, shiiinnnnkk... ting" I look around and Doran has found a new toy. His daddy left a beer bottle cap on the table and it got stole'd. He has been playing with this beer cap for a good 1/2 hour...picking it up and mewing, dropping it and listening to the fun noise, pushing it around on the hard wood, picking it up and switching to the laminate...trying to bury it in the rugs...ect.
All this free kitty joy got me thinking about how many toys they like that I don't pay for, and I began wondering why on earth I buy cat toys... And so, a list of favorite free toys.
While I have grouped mine by cats you may use any organizational format that you like, or none at all.
Jitzu - Wine corks...she loves them. My little alcoholic. Also...Torri, but I'm not so much a fan of that. The only thing she has every carried around the house, she mewed and loved it. (keep in mind this is the cat who crawls into the recycle bin after a party and licks the bottles...ew, kitty beer breath)
Torri - Tail Feathers from Dexter, a blue and yellow macaw that I clean the cage of every week. When he molts she gets a new toy. She cuddle it, throws and catches it, pulls it onto the bed and sleeps with it...so cute!
She also likes hair elastics, and her daddy's pen tips (for his diabetic insulin pens). We remove these things from a pile on the bed at least twice a day...she puts them on the bed then cuddles with them while napping. Adorable.
Doran - ...beer bottle cap. As explained above. Also he stole a clothing tag and played with it for quite a while. It kicked his bum.
Muffin - Loves the milk rings. LOVES them...as in gets excited when I get ceral/open the fridge/use milk in anything - loves them. He'll play fetch with them for hours, and it's sooo cute. He also likes bits of fluff on the floor, and pretty well anything he can move. Especially my toys that he hijacked!
One of MY favorite free kitty toys is a cereal box. I unfold the top and bottom when there's no more cereal and put it on the floor. Muffin likes to hide his head in it with his bum sticking out, he also likes to dive into them from across the kitchen...hilarious!
So, what free toys do your kitties love?
