DIY Cat/Pet Items: can you help me?
I got an e-mail, thank you, Hillela, about sharing what we have DYI'd for our Pets. Great thought, idea, and topic, Hillela, as I have searched this group MANY times for DIY Pet ideas and there is very little to find here. I have made a few things for my cat, many over the years for my dogs, but 'hometalk' was not around then, the Internet was just starting then! Here are some of my recent attempts. One specifically did not go well and if anyone can help me, I would be so greatly appreciative!
I recently posted this, Cat Play House, there is a story as to why it is not finished, but this is not my troubled project.
As well, I recently posted this Cat Deshedder, came out better than I hoped, yes that is Cat Nip all over the bottom, still not my troubled project.
This is my troubled project, almost too embarrassed to post this (it is THAT bad). Having said that...I saw this video on YouTube about this cat playing with a Wack-a-Mole thing- here is the video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti3mWTKXIgk ) I wanted to make something like it and never EVER found any instructions ANYWHERE, so...I did what I thought. I FAILED. I glued the cutest happy emojis to plastic knives. The cylinders are empty salt boxes (gardening thing), the rest is black duct tape and some cute washi cat tape. These just don't move smoothly. If you have ideas to help, please! If you know of any instructions floating around the NET, please! My cat has tried to play with this, but the thing hangs up and the faces don't come up far enough for him, or the knife moves and it just doesn't work-and he walks away. I am open to all sorts of suggestions. Thanking You ALL in Advance!!!!!
