Animal Crackers as a Cat Toy

I have found a cheap toy for our cat. Half of an animal cracker was on the floor, and our cat chases it all the time. This is a cat who won't play with any storebought toy. Give her an animal cracker, and she gives us a great joy. How thrifty is that

My cat does not like bought toys either she loves to play with a twist tie or the seal from a milk jug.
She will play for hours with this.:))

You can also loosely crumple some unused foil into a ball. Our furry kids love to bat them around!

Does she eat them? If not, she may be secretly trying to attract some more lively toys like mice. LOL anyway really does sound like a thrifty toy/snack.

Thriftmeg, our cat doesn't eat the animal crackers, just paws at them, and they tend to spin a little, and it's a great game.


Maryeileen, I took some aluminum foil and had done what you also mentioned. At first she wasn't interested, but she played with it one time.

smilingfaces88, that's a great playtoy idea. Sometimes our cat will chase the rings, how funny! Do you mean the ring or do you have some other seal?Never thought of twist-ties. She got into a sugarfilled straw from valentines day, and just loved the straw part, although when I saw the sugar was all over, out went the straw........

Thanks for your ideas! Kim
