Try this one out on your pet cat. Most kittens are frightened by the paper bag sound, but a mature cat will give you hours of laughs with a paper bag. If at first your pet does not seem interested, tickle the outside of the bottom and watch the real fun begin. Watch out for your fingers even though they are on the outside. Cats are quick to play and don't know the difference between your finger and the tickle in the bag.
Catnip comes in many forms. Most cat toys are inexpensive or you can make your own. Use some sturdy cloth. Pillow ticking is a great choice. Buy some catnip at your local natural food department or at a pet store. Use a little in the pillow ticking and sew up the ends. Watch the fun with your cat. Blow hot air on the pillow ticking to bring out the full aroma of the catnip.
Select a box the size of the cat. Most felines like to go into a box, so allow them to investigate the box and then enjoy the show . The cat will do all sorts of maneuvers around the box and in it. Some cats will sneak up on the box as if it invited them to do that game too.
Put a newspaper down fully opened on the floor. Most cats will create their own fun with the newspaper. If you laugh, laugh quietly since loud laughter could interrupt the inexpensive toy of the newspaper for your pet. You might even find your kitty will get tired and actually go to sleep on the newspaper. After several hours, you could see the newspaper in shreds too. Some cats really get into destroying the toy newspaper for some reason.
You would never think a rubber band would be on any interest to a cat, but they truly like to play with rubber bands. Just make sure you are present during play time with the rubber band, so the cat does not chew or swallow it. Make sure you choose a large enough rubber band so you can view the fun and make sure no problems during the playing with the rubber band occur..
