10 Fun Crochet Cat Toy Patterns

Do you love cats? Then this post and the crochet cat toy patterns below will be just what you need! You’ll find fun crochet toy patterns for cats and also some cute crochet cat designs that you can make for your friends cat lovers, your kids and/or yourself!

Here are a couple of things you can crochet for your cat: a mouse, a fish or just crochet a string with some tassels attached. Cats love to chase and hunt anything that is small and resembles a mouse. And my foster cats, for some reason, rarely played with store-bought cat toys. But they would go nuts when I scrunch up a piece of paper and throw it on the floor. They would play with it for hours until they shred it in thousands little pieces.

So, it’s easy to make cats happy! Simple cat toys are good enough for cats and in some cases even preferred. 🙂 The only thing I would be careful about when making a cat toy, is to not to attach any small parts such as buttons or similar, as they can be bitten off and accidentally swallowed by your cat. I would not attach anything like that to make it safe for your cat. And if the patterns calls for button eyes I would just make them out of yarn instead!

Whether you’re looking for a toy for your cat or a crochet cat toy for your little ones to play with – one thing for sure it’s going to be a lot of fun learning how to crochet a cat toy!
