You always hear that there are two types of people in the world, cat people and dog people. Our home is inhabited by one of each. It’s become abundantly clear to me in the last few years, however, that I am mush when it comes to cats. Our cat, Bobby Chance, is tops on my list of living things and I’d house 20 more just like her if I could. Well, maybe not just like her. She can be a stinky little girl.
To calm the stink, we rely on Fresh Step® Clean Pawsâ„¢ Triple Action Scented Litter. Available in the pet aisle of Target, we found ours on an end cap, Fresh Step® Clean Pawsâ„¢ eliminates odors from all 3 sources: Urine, Feces, and Bacteria.
With it’s low dust formula, Fresh Step® Clean Pawsâ„¢ helps keep paws and your home clean. The high quality clay encases liquid to form such tight clumps that virtually no stinky crumbles are left behind after scooping.
For cleaner surfaces and clearer air. And cleaner paws. Because those paws are important and have a lot of tough work to do. Like batting around our DIY Pom Cat Toy.
This DIY Pom Cat Toy is a great way to use any extra scraps of yarn you may have and they come together in a matter of minutes.
Our Bobby Chance, she’s a girly girl. Cat box stink is embarrassing, boys are icky, and she likes pink along with all things kind of frilly. So I made sure to make most of her poms with strands of pink yarn.
The poms used in our DIY Pom Cat Toy can be made as fluffy and as colorful as you’d like. I used a piece of cardboard to form our poms. Simply cut a strip in the middle of the cardboard away so you can secure the yarn together, slide off the cardboard, then trim with scissors. At this point, you can add a bell by threading it through another strand of yarn and tying around the pom. Finally, attach to a dowel.
The cat loves it, but the kids love the chance to play with her, too. And we all love these cleaner paws.
DIY Pom Cat Toy
- yarn, multiple colors
- bells (optional)
- wooden dowel
Begin by preparing a sturdy piece of cardboard.
Leaving two sides in tact, cut a slit down the center until you get to the middle.
Then, simply wrap it in yarn. The more you wrap, the fluffier the pom will be. Once wrapped, tie tightly with another piece of yarn. You may want to do this a few times if your cat is especially rough. You can also take a bell at this stage, slide through a piece of yarn, and tie around the middle of the pom.
Cut the looped pieces of yarn. Trim around the pom until you get a nice circular shape. With another piece of longer yarn, tie to a dowel.
And play! Check out all of our pet toys, craft, and ideas at Our Kid Things!
