These are cheap and easy and are actually outlasting the store bought ones. I cut a dowel rod so it was 2 feet long, drilled a hole in one end and tied a nylon string through it. I used embroidery thread to tie on feathers and a bell, using a fly fishing method I think, so its nice and tight. I added a drop of hot glue in the middle of the feathers too. I just painted them to make them look more fun.

Cheap to make, but really expensive if your kitty eats one and has to have it surgically removed. Watch out for that bell, embroidery floss, and paint... all can be harmful to cats. Especially the bell.
If the paint is acrylic or the feathers are dyed, it's harmless - if it's oil, watercolor, etc. the pigments could get to the cat and cause harm.

I can tell though that these will be great interactive (i.e. owner-supervised playtime/cat-person interactive time) toys for cats.

I've used a stick from the yard as the (free) cat fishing pole before - if it snaps, just get another stick (heck, just wrap the string around your finger and use your arm to cast!) - these toys are the bestest!

Wishing you **fun** with your furkid(s)!
