Cat sock toy

How to make a sock cat toy

Some cats love using their back legs to kick out when they’re playing. There are toys that are made for this behaviour, but they can be costly.

Luckily, we have a cheap alternative that is super simple to make.

You will need:

  • An old, clean long sock or a stray normal one
  • Something to stuff it with, like packing paper

How to make your cat a sock toy

You can make our super simple sock toy in just two steps.

Step one: Get your stray sock and stuff it with packing paper around two thirds of the way
Step two: Once you’ve stuffed it, tie a knot in the end of your sock to hold everything in place

Encouraging your pet to wrestle on this toy provides both mental and physical stimulation and means your furniture and legs are saved from excited claws!
