I think the clothing toys are fine :) Just make sure there are no buttons or loose strings that the cats can eat...my other cat Milo seems to eat everything D:

Another interesting fact, (I seem to know too much about cats sorry) is that some cats like my Milo can smell a product in plastic. It's called 'tallow' that is made out of rendered animal fat. It is not a very known thing or even scientifically proven; but too many cats seem to eat plastic bags and wrappers. So I would keep a look out for plastic wrappers of any kind that people leave around at the shelter just in case. I hope this has helped!

And I forgot to read the very first post, but just to clarify...cats may eat the stomach of their prey but it doesn't mean they eat the plants.
A mouse for example is manly herbivorous, so its stomach content is just fermented vegetable matter. It is a mix of bacteria (symbiotic) and fatty acids (volatile). This can help aid in the management of the cat's own intestinal flora, and might contribute a little to the cats energy source. But it will lose ninety percent of its energy because it has moved up a trophic level, so it doesn't add very much energy. Just thought that might be interesting to know as well since I am a biology nerd...

Cooked chicken (no seasonings) are also a good treat for cats.

LTB, I have some scrap fleece that i could possibly send your way if you want it. I have some patterns and that will catch their attention, and colors that will catch potential adopters' eyes to draw attention to the cats. ;) let me know.

Thanks for the information about the prey's belly! I hardly search up cats' and their behaviors, usually only their breeds and history of the specifics. ^^"

Thanks, Skye! My parents won't want me to tell people my address just to help the shelter, but I made around 14 toys so that should be okay! (: It's quite small, so it should be okay.

my cat LOVES pipecleaners. i bend the very ends over so they arent sharp and then just wrap it around my finger so its a coil.

ive never met a cat who didnt enjoy playing with a pipecleaner.
