Cruelty Free Cat Toys

by [email protected] 

In today's pet supplies stores, one cannot seem to avoid finding toys for their beloved felines that do not contain fur, leather, or feathers. But have no fear! There are many toys out there that consist of no animal byproducts.

First of all, there are the infamous scratching posts, made up of though rope and carpeting. Some even come decorated with a neat little, floofy, hanging fluff ball for your cat to bat around.

Then there are the hundreds of catnip toys that consist of safe plastics and/or cloth. You can even make your own catnip pillows with your own fabric of choice and organic catnip, which is found in most pet supplies stores.

Some of the most unique cat toys out on the market are cruelty free. There are zig zag balls, plastic balls in which a small ball bearing give the toy its capricious ways, entertaining cats for hours. Some balls and plush toys make noises to entertain the felines, like squeaking, honking, beeping, even undefinable noises.

Best of all, because of the simplicity of cruelty free toys, some are the least expensive. Ping pong toys, spinner balls, catnip pillows, mylar balls, crinkle pillows, nylon mice, and many more toys cost under a dollar, and are quite durable and entertaining to a cat.

So don't be distressed if you want your cats to have fur-, feather-, and leather-free toys, because there are hundreds out there. And you'll find that you'll be saving more money, too!
