Moderncat reader Stephanie sent in these photos of her cats with some truly eco-friendly cat toys. Stephanie recently purchased a FURminator and gave her kitties Miko and Rodney a good grooming, resulting in lots of loose fur. Instead of throwing it out, Stephanie rolled the fur into tight little balls that have the texture of felt, and voila! free, recycled cat toys that are not only durable and fun to play with, but they match each cat perfectly! Miko and Rodney love them!
Stephanie says that if the kitties give the hairballs too many bunny kicks, all you have to do is roll each toy in your hands to re-form the ball. You can even add a little catnip in the middle of the ball for extra fun.
