Is your cat lazy, obese, boring, or all three? Well for under a dollar you can change that by making this simple toy! All you need is a plastic ring (found on most bottles) and fishing string.
Find a bottle with a little extra ring on it (as shown).
Remove the lid and then remove the extra ring. This will take a little bit of effort, but just keeping pulling at it with your fingers.
Rinse off to ensure it is safe to play with. You now have the majority of your work done.
Now grab a reasonable size of fishing string (long enough for you to hold the string and have it touch the floor plus a little extra). Loop it through the hole like shown.
Now tie it, and if you have enough string left on the end of it double knot it.
Step 6: Fin!
Here is a video of my cat. He used to love to play with this all the time when he was a kitten and still gets a kick out of it.
To use this: Either dangle it in front of your cat
Drag slowly around the cat and they will attack it
Note: If you leave this around the cat may bite the string and "break" it so keep it in a safe place.
