Cats make toys out of almost anything

Updated Dec 21, 2021

Dear Cathy,

In response to your column on cat toys, both of my cats go nuts over small paper balls made from shopping receipts or old lottery tickets. As soon as I take the receipt out of the bag, they run to me and anxiously wait for me to crumple it into a ball and toss it across the room. The only downfall is getting them all picked up before I vacuum.

– William, Baldwin, New York

Dear William,

When it comes to cats, they mostly love things that don’t cost money, like crumpled paper to chase, paper bags to play in, and boxes to hide in. Just pushing stuff off countertops is fun for most cats. They just have a way of making almost anything fun.
