Everybody loves a good life hack, right? … Well I know how busy cat servants out there can get and I’m pretty sure you’re all looking for fun new ways to help enrich the lives of your cats too, so here’s 5 purrfect hacks.
Marinate old cat toys in catnip
Trust me there’s no shortage of cat toys in this household, but after a while cats just lose interest in some toys, so to add some extra appeal to those old toys that just sit in the corner gathering dust – Marinate them in catnip!
Make a cat cave!
I’ve seen many DIY cat tents online and I was going to include that in our video, but then I came across this even more purrfect idea… A cat cave is super easy to make and you don’t need any wire or tape like you do when making a cat tent. All you need is a good sized, sturdy box and an old T-shirt, simply slide the T-shirt over the box so the opening is on the top, then gather all the excess material at the bottom and tie it in a knot so it’s nice and snug and then tuck in the sleeves.
Cat food puzzle
There’s many different options to make a simple cat food puzzle for your cat, wild cats roam hundreds of miles in search of prey, so it’s important to try and keep your cats stimulated at treat time, just like us humans a mental workout is always beneficial to our overall health.
Whack a mouse!
Create your very own kitty game, again you need a box (most cat servants have these everywhere) wooden dowel, mouse toy and a glue gun… Cut around a dozen or so holes in the top of the box and then a larger one in the back, glue the mouse toy to the end of the wooden dowel and hey presto you’re ready to play!
