Here's the BEST cat toy in the world and you'll only need 3 simple things to make it. A dowel, stick or a long knitting needle, a piece of fish line and some yarn. Take the dowel or stick and to the end, tie on a piece of fishing line about 4 feet long (since fishline is transparent, the cat won't see it). Then to the end of the fishline, tie a short piece of eyelash yarn (or several strands of any yarn) these should be small, only about about 3 or 4 inches long. This toy will resemble a fishing pole with a "worm" on the end of it.
Sounds like a fun toy but be very carefull when allowing your cat to play with any kind of string or yarn. If swallowed it can become tangled in the intestines and cause sickness or even death. I was advised by my vet to avoid all toys containing string or rubber bands.
You are right about the dangers of yarn & string around animals (if they swallow it) But there is only one piece of eyelash yarn on this toy & that's tied on to the end of the fishline with many sturdy knots & I keep a good eye on him to make sure he doesn't swallow it...
We can't lock our pets in glass houses & never play with them either... I quess we could say "They could choke on a piece of food... Maybe we should never feed them!"
