Easy and surprising cat toys

You don’t need to spend money on kitty this Christmas if you just use what’s already in your house.

My daughter made my husband a cat toy for his birthday. We were broke and she wanted to make him something he would “really use,” which I’m pretty sure she swiped from Alvin and the Chipmunks, and she knows that he loves to play with the cats.

So she took a stick from outside, secured a piece of yarn to it tightly, and wrapped it around the stick. Then she wrapped it up in some wrapping paper to give to her papa for his birthday. And wouldn’t you know it, not only did he love it—the cats did, too!
