My oldest son has an amazing imagination, I told him our cat was bored and he needed to go make her a toy. With a couple of fleece pieces, some old apron strings and a key ring he had a cat toy made in 5 minutes. Then I started thinking about pet toy safety and though the toy is cool, is it safe? So I launched into a search on pet toy safety and found this cool site:
Apparently there are no government safety regulations on the toys you buy for your pets in the stores. Therefore, talk to your vet about safe toys for your pet, avoid imported toys that may be made with unsafe materials and may contain lead (this is vitally important if you have young children in the house with your pets). Keep your pet green and safe and have fun!!
