So I just thought of this yesterday and decided to give it a try today... Happy to say my laptop has been kitty free all day :D
So yesterday I was looking over the character picture generator I had mentioned before when it hit me...
Ribbon and bells!!
So I dug through my random convention craft stuff and happy to say I had enough ribbon and bells left over from the catgirl costume I made a few years back...
Anyways I took about 30 to 32 inches of ribbon and tied 2 bells to one end (one silver and one gold) then at the other end I made an adjustable knot at the other end (kinda like a hangman's noose)
I then slipped the "noose" over my right arm and tightened it... Now everytime I move my mouse my arm moves a bit making the ribbon/bell toy move... As a result they played happily with the new "toy" most of the day!
Bells toy should only be used as a temporary distraction for over active kitties and not substituted as "actual play" with your kitty as they do need lots of attention :3
