So in addition to making a tin foil ball, one thing that is great about tin foil is that it can be molded into many shapes. So, today I'm going to show you how to make a tin foil rod. One thing I want to point out about tin foil that's so great is that cats are really attracted to the noise of tin foil. I know that if I go into the pantry and I just do this my cats will come running into the kitchen. It's like they know I'm going to make them a ball. So I can never resist giving my cats a little piece of tin foil in all different shapes and sizes. In order to make the rod first we're going to fold our, about a square foot again of tin foil, fold it in half. I'm just going to start rolling it from the end, rolling it down and then I'm just going to, once it's in a tight roll, I'm going to squeeze it just to make it a little more dense. Cats do cut themselves sometimes so you just want to make sure that there aren't any blatant sharp parts sticking out, otherwise it should be fine. One thing that's great about a tin foil rod as opposed to a tin foil ball is that it can encourange your cats to be more social with each other. Since it's a rod they can sort of both play with one end and pass it back and forth and sort of treat it like a little tug of war. And this can be really great because it's a communal toy and it encourage communication and togetherness and that's always nice when you have more than one cat. Sometimes with a ball once cat can dominate it or it will easily get lost in a little corner and the other cat can't find it so the rod is great for that reason. Plus, the rod rolls a little bit diferently than the ball. I think sometimes our cats can grow a little bit weary of the same old ball shaped toy. So, it's nice to mix it up a little bit with a little more cylindrical object.
