Buddy's favorite toy is a drawstring tied to a home made sock ball thingy.
Stuff catnip and plastic grocery store bags into the end of a sock so its about the size of a tennis ball yet still squishy and tie sock into a knot. Cut sock roughly three inches above the knot and tie drawstring below knot. Swing toy by drawstring in diffrent movements and speeds to attract your kitty. Buddy loves to chase this and when he catches it often rabbit kicks it while holding it with his front paws and biteing at it. He is not to swift on catching it sometimes, he seems a little slow but he gets it eventually.
