But don't throw them away...your local shelter can use them and they can also be turned into fun craft projects! Here's a round-up of some of our favorite ideas:
Make a rice sock as a supplemental heat source for animals recovering from spay/neuter surgery
Baby booties can be used to keep paws warm while animals are under anesthesia and recovering
Make Catnip Kickers for shelter cat enrichment
Make a Sock Hat For Preemies using just the toe of an infant sock
Operation Happy Sock is an all-volunteer, nonprofit project that takes unwanted socks and turns them into catnip toys for homeless cats in animal shelters. Downloadable instructions for this fun project can be found here. Learn how to have a Happy Sock Production Party in your own community too!
Can you think of any other cat-related projects that can be done with socks?
