We are a cat family. Since Jeremy and I got married we have always had a cat in our home. They keep us company and bring tons of entertainment to the whole family. We are unbelievably lucky with the two cats we have currently, Sophie and Sundae, they are so patient with the kids and love the rough pets, fun playing and giant kisses from both Jude and Teagan.
Muse® Natural Cat Food knows that cats deserve different flavors and varieties of food. Varieties of wet recipes include Chowder, Broth, Gravy, Paté, and some with Toppers. All are made with real fish or poultry and contain no colors, preservatives, or artificial flavors.
Seeing Jude and Teagan playing with the cats is always fun. I decided to get a little crafty last weekend and make Jude and Teagan their very own Cat Charmer Ribbon Wand Cat Toys! We have had cat toys similar to these that we bought but for some reason our cats LOVE to eat toys, which can be dangerous and so messy when they throw up! Yuck! This project allowed me to have a little more control over what the cats could play with and they turned out so cute!
DIY Cat Charmer Ribbon Wand Cat Toy
Screw Eye Hook
1. Place screw eye hook into the end of the wooden dowel. Secure tightly.
2. Thread one shoe lace through the eye hook.
3. Thread a second shoe lace through the eye hook. Leaves 4 laces hanging down for easy ribbon play.
4. Wrap wooden dowel with Washi Tape for decorative flair!
5. Have fun with your cat as she jumps, bats, and plays with the laces.
You could use any ribbon or laces of your choice. Like I said, both of our cats LOVE to eat toys and ribbons are usually the first thing they go for. I decided to buy shoe laces so they wouldn't be as easy to chew through and found some great tie dyed ones that really make the cat toy fun!
Once our new toys were made I got the kids to find the cats and have some fun! Everyone was so excited to play! I am happy to say that the shoe laces have not been chewed through or eaten either! Bonus!
On top of feeding Sundae and Sophie high quality natural cat food we want them to be happy too! Adding a little fun to our family time at home with the cats has been fun for us but I also know that the cats enjoy it too. Not to mention, it gives them exercise when Jude and Teagan pick up those Ribbon Wand Toys. Get moving kitties!
How do you keep your cat happy and healthy?
