How to Make a Cat Treat Dispensing Toy from a Toilet Paper Roll

Here’s how to make a cat treat dispenser in three easy steps. Rather than spend $20 on a plastic contraption that your cat will outsmart in a few minutes, make your own eco-friendly cat toy using toilet paper rolls by following these simple instructions. It’s lots of fun, easy to do, each puzzle is unique, the cost is free and you can customize the difficulty level depending on your cat.

What’ You’ll Need:

  • 2 empty toilet paper rolls
  • Scissors
  • Small cat treat

Step 1

Cut one of the toilet paper rolls into rings about 1/4″ to 1/3″ in width.

Step 3

Stuff a few of the toilet paper rings into one end of the toilet paper roll so that the treat can’t easily fall out. Turn the roll around and stuff the remaining rings into the other end.

Now you’re ready to give this treat-dispensing cat toy to your cat. The more rings you put in, the trickier it is for your cat to get the treat to come out. The fewer rings, the easier it is.

Here’s a video of Furball interacting with his toilet paper roll cat toy. He loves treats, so he’s quite persistent in getting the treat out of this homemade dispenser for cat treats. The laughter in the background is my preschooler.
