Sparky just got his first two homemade toys and he loves them!
They're quite similar, except one has a big cat ball on the end, and they're the most simple ones you can make, but Sparky definitely didn't seem to mind when he got to explore, so success!
I used some beads and some small wooden tiles-kind-of-thing. If there's a painter here on the forum, he/she will know exactly what it is. When you buy white canvas to paint on, you get these little wooden plates that fit on the back of it, to stretch the canvas or something.. I don't really get the idea, seems to make no difference, so I just don't use them, which means that i have quite a few from the past few years.
Spark loves to chew on them so i just made holes in them and put them on the string. Voila, hours of entertainment!
I hung the bigger one with the ball in the center of Spark's favourite spot in the kitchen, a triangular perch.
