DIY- Kitty Puzzle Box
There’s nothing more fun than picking up a new toy for your fur-baby. You anticipate the joy they will have playing. You come home, unpack it, spend 15 minutes trying to assemble it, and step back to wait for the joy. Then you realize your little monster is having a blast…with the box the toy came in. So what’s a pet parent to do? Stop spending big bucks and DIY a puurrrfectly entertaining cat puzzle box.
- Find a couple of soda/beer flats, you should be able to snag 2 at your local grocery or liquor store. Try to find one that just a hair smaller than the other. But if they’re the same size you can still squish ’em together.
- A box cutter or scissors will work too.
- a marker
- some packing tape
- a few toys that roll around.
Step 2: Cut out all the holes you drew. It’s also a good idea to use a cutting board to protect your counter top. Some cats are great at fishing their toys out. You could also make some of the holes smaller to make the puzzle box more challenging.
Step 4: Just quish the two pieces together and tape the edges.
Keep in mind that from house cats to tigers the best toys are the novel ones. Once your cat is bored with a toy, hide it. Keep a stash of toys in a closet where they wont be found. And trade them out every few days. Plus, if they get bored with this one you’re not really out much.
Bonus: you could spray paint the puzzle box so it matches your home decor. On the down side- cats love cardboard. If you paint it some cats may not be as psyched about the toy.
