We don’t have a cat but one of my friends who has one recently asked me how to make cat toys. So I was intrigued. What cat toy can I make as my first pet project for cats? Then it hit me, my friend goes to work from 9-5 leaving her cat all alone in the house. I’m sure her kitty will need some love while my friend is away. So I suggested a self petting station. It’s an easy DIY project anyone can make and will show how much you love your pet even when you’re away. Just purr-fect!
