  • I enjoyed the article about toys to make for your cat, because this is something that I am trying to do at the moment. I don’t have very much money to spare, but at the same time I know that I don’t want my cats to have to go without, so I think that I will definitely be spending some time making some toys for them that they can enjoy. I will try and get some photographs of the toys when they’re done, as I’m sure that people here would love to see them!
