    We just adopted a cat and searching for some ideas to make him toys, i saw this one. We took a course about cat care, it was a requirement from the pet shelter, and one thing that they told us was that aluminium foil is not a good material to let them play with beacuse it feels akward when they bite it too hard (magnetism and that stuff) and could leave little sharp peaces bethind.

    It's not a good toy for cats!
    And the production cost, no way my cat's will get a Aluminium "sphere"(ball).
    Why don't you do one in wood, you can always paint it if you want the "sphere" to look like aluminium. Or any colour your cat like ?

    What a great way to show you don't have to make something complicated to write an instructable about it :)
