You can create fun for your furry friends with items already sitting around your house!

It's National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day! If you able to adopt a furry friend, today is a great way to do so. If you're not able, but still want to help our dogs and cats in need - you've come to the right place.

On Friday, April 30th during Nailed It Or Failed It on Good Morning Quad Cities, we made dog and cat toys out of everyday household items: empty water bottles, socks, tennis balls, string, tissue paper boxes, and empty toilet paper/paper towel rolls! Our friends at the Quad City Animal Welfare Center helped us find some great ideas for dog toys and cat toys. We tried some of them out on the air and hope their animals love them as much as we loved making them! Click the video above to see what we created.

Jon says he's had a stack of papers on his desk for months now. In that stack are two recipes for Ketz's Concoctions he could make in the future. Friday he had the opportunity to make one of those drinks, his grandmother Gloria's favorite, a Vodka Gimlet.

All you need is ice, a shaker, glasses, vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup. Put ice in your shaker, pour two parts vodka in it, one part lime juice, one part simple syrup, shake them all up, pour it in your glass, and you're done. There's your Vodka Gimlet! Watch the video below:
