Strangely enough, this idea came from a dog training classes for our latest rescue baby. We had been working on training the dogs to ignore distractions and used some similar cat toys. They were so much fun, I just knew my feline granddaughter would love them.
I already had everything I needed to make some at home – feathers, dowel rods, and tape. I chose to use electrical tape as it was sturdy and flexible. I wrapped the tape around the ends of the dowel rods adding feathers as I went and finishing with an additional length of tape.
As expected, they were a hit! Little Miss Meggie’s delight was difficult to capture on camera, so my daughter posed her with her new toy.
She looks like she thinking, “Ok Momma, enough of this photo nonsense. Let’s play some more!”
