I am sure everyone has gotten their cat a great gift only to be disappointed when kitty chooses the box or wrappings to play with instead. Despite cats’ reputations for being picky, they really do appreciate the simple things. There are a lot of toys and activities you can get for your cat for free.
One of the simplest toys that will provide hours of fun is a straw. Another is a crumpled paper-even better add a little catnip to the paper. Milk caps seem to be a hit too, like little hockey pucks. Another free toy that allows cats to hunt for their food is water bottle. Just dry it o, cut a few holes in it and add treats.
If you look on youtube, there are several videos made just to amuse your kitty. There are aquariums, birds and many others. Here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K1XKClRb38&feature=youtu.be . Speaking of birds, you can make your own bird tv just by tossing some seed or bread out to the birds and squirrels.
For those of you with tablets, there are a lot of free games just for cats. Make sure you have a screen protector though because some cats may get a little rough. I have downloaded several and my cats really enjoyed chasing a mouse and some flies. Here is the link to Amazon’s free games for cats: http://smile.amazon.com/Smart-Touch-Games-Cats-Free/dp/B00IVGEATC/ref=sr_1_2?s=mobile-apps&ie=UTF8&qid=1402277816&sr=1-2&keywords=cat+games .
