If you like quick and easy crochet projects, you might want to try making some cute cat toys using the free crochet patterns below. Don’t have a cat? Maybe you know someone who does! They might love some new cat toys for their kitty cats.
If you live near an animal shelter, you could donate a basket full of crocheted cat toys so the shelter can sell them to raise a bit of money. Or they may just want to give them to the shelter cats to play with.
No matter what you do with the cat toys, you will have fun crocheting them. And they are a great crochet project to use up any yarn scraps. So get those yarn scraps and your crochet hook out and start crocheting some cute cat toys!
