I have kitties that love to romp and play after breakfast in the morning. I just couldn't keep them from getting into my trinkets around the house, so I opted to make a simple little toy box from a cardboard box from my local grocery store. I filled it with little toys such as little balls with bells inside, some have soft velvety cloth around the outside in tiger stripes, little toy mice in a six pak, which by the way teaches the little ones to keep the predators away, and they love paper that makes noise rolled up in a ball, and maybe one or two with catnip for a little treat, all of which you can buy at your local grocery store, or WalMart.
What a great idea. We have chihuahuas and I used a small wheeled carry on made for little kids. Got it at goodwill. I filled it with little soft animal toys and bones. They know it's their toybox and are always playing with it. NO chewing of our stuff..
Only one thing to add: put half the toys in the box, the other half of different toys hidden away from the kitties-every 3-6 months switch the toys and hide the ones they have been using. They will get bored of the same ones after a time unless it is a favorite item.
