Intro: Catfishing!

I found a way to make playing with your cat much more exciting for the both of you. My cat loves it, and its sort of fun for me too. Plus, if you fish, this could be a way to work on your casting and play with your cat at the same time. Maybe...

Step 1: Materials

To make your catfishing pole, you need...
a fishing pole you're willing to cut the hook off of
a small cat toy (dingle ball. fake mouse, etc.)
scissors
your cat

Step 2: Cutting Off the Hook

First you need to cut off the hook. You need to do this unless you want to hurt your cat, which I'm sure you don't want to do. Just cut the string off right above the hook so you have enough string to tie a knot.

Step 3: Attaching the Toy

Tie the fishing line around some part of the toy, just make sure that it won't come off when your cat is playing with it. I suggest double or tripple knotting it.

Step 4: You're Done!

Wasn't that easy? Now you can control where the toy goes and have your cat chase it all the way!

    i agree with thathurtthistime it happend to my cat luckly i was there ( godbless your kittys ) what? i love kittys

    You shouldnt leave your cat unattended with this. We made one a few years ago and left for the weekend(we had set it up in a chair, the cats loved it) and we came back to find my cat, Tiger, at the end of it with the line around his neck :*(

    You stole my cat! That cat looks exactly like mine, except that mine is a bit darker and has a white patch on his nose...

    It works with dogs, they play fetch, remember? keep in mind that dogs love to play tug of war, so don't let them catch it. You can also fish for ducks/geese with bits of bread on the end, or you can put a dollar and some lead sinkers on the end and fish for people.
