About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Here's a sampling of descriptions of "make your own toys" in this book. About half of the projects are as follows...and by projects I mean items of trash that the author spends at least an entire page, and often two pages, describing:
"Schrodinger's Box" - give your cat a box.
"Classic Shopping Bag" - give your cat a shopping bag.
"Tape Ball" - give your cat a ball of tape.
"Juice Pull" - give your cat a juice pull.
"Juicy Hoop" - give your cat the seal ring around a bottle of juice.
"Madcap" - give your cat the cap off a bottle.
"Unwrap This!" - give your cat the tissue paper from a gift.
"Ping Pong Pinball" - give your cat a ping pong ball.
"Nuts 'n Bolts" - give your cat a metal nut (severe choking/hospitalization hazard, NOT recommended)
"Classic Ball of Yarn" - give your cat a ball of yarn.
"Penned Up Energy" - give your cat a pen cap.
So let me make it clear, again, what this book is filled with: one- and two-page sheets of instructions and materials for giving your cat single items of trash. That to me seems like a huge, huge, HUGELY hypocritical waste of paper on Holly Tse's part. Throughout the book she advocates recycling and conserving.Read more ›

Originally bought this book for my daughter to keep her busy on rainy days entertaining an equally bored cat. Have now had this book 2 weeks and it's so good I'm yet to hand it over!
Clever, funny and whilst obviously being a labour of love this book sets out incredibly well how you and your cat can be eco-friendly and still have a ridiculous amount of fun.
Purrrr-fect for all ages of owner and cats alike - this book dosn't go all 'preachy' and 'hippy' on the reader it's more based on a common sense approach to using what you've got.
Being from England, some of the brand names are unknown but logic points you in the right direction. Worth every penny and highly recommended, this book simply is a must for anyone with a cat. My cat concurs with every word!
The book is a fun read. It caters to both lazy and hyperactive cats, and has helpful insight into what type of toys your cat might respond to.
I would recommend this book to anyone with a cat. My cat hasn't been the same since. ;)
