DIY Kitty Teether

Growing up, we were a dog family. The only cats I ever saw either ran the streets or were at friends homes. I have literally no experience with them so, raising two now, is pretty interesting.


We haven't had them long and they are only about 5 months old. They act like toddlers, fittingly enough, they are now teething. It is hard for them to eat, even their soft food and they have an obsession with chewing on boxes. I definitely needed to find something to end that habit before they hurt themselves.


This DIY is very simple. All you need is a can of broth and a washcloth.


First, cut up the washcloth in any sizes or shapes you want. I chose strips, and then I braided them.



Once you have that ready, open up a can of broth, and soak the shapes or strips. You may want to let them soak for a few minutes.



Do your final touch ups and then put them into a freezer safe container and let them freeze for a few hours. I flipped mine a few times to keep them from sticking to the bottom of the container.


After that, just get them out and give them to your pets. Depending on how warm it is, they may thaw quickly, I made sure to keep ours in the kitchen.


I know what you are wondering, "Did it work?" Nope. Not for my kitties. I think I need to keep experimenting with the different broths and hopefully I can find one they will try. Plus, they don't like cold stuff. 

All I know is something has to happen soon because I can't take the constant chewing. Have you tried any DIY teethers or do you know another way to make their gums feel better? Please, let me know in the comments below..for my sanity! 

Thank you so much for reading everyone, have a wonderful day.
