Abi won't play with anything plastic. she just sniffs it and walks away. I have tried rubbing feliway on it, cat food, even tuna juice, and nothing. So this leaves out a lot of things she could play with alone especially now at five months and teething. She prefers cotton and silk (weird?) and she prefers a smooth texture to wool- so I make some heavy cotton or silk string ties and knot them and those she will chase and chew. and she likes cotton covered scrunchies with small silk ribbons attached to them- all attached to a fishing pole. Right now she is in my lap wrestling with my apron strings. Please give me some other ideas for things she can play with besides me.. she hasn't yet figured out that when I am home I am not her play slave. PS: cat nip is a bore to her. All her favorite toys are little things I have made. Could this be a back to the earth...whole earth catalog cat ? I am showing my age with that reference.
