where can I buy a pom pom ring like this?

I am looking for somewhere that sells this pom pom ring. It's a small black tinsel pom pom glued to an adjustable ring. I feel like i should be able to find them in bulk somewhere but haven't had luck looking online. I would try DIYing them but I haven't been able to find that size black pom poms in the right size 3/4-1 in diameter. These rings are my cat's favorite toys and we're down to the last one. They originally came with a nail polish order. I emailed the polish maker but didn't hear back I've bought her tinsel poms but she seems to only really love these rings.

You can get that type of Pom Pom by itself and the adjustable ring also separately at most large craft stores. I am not sure how they are joined together from your picture, but these could be made fairly easily. If you want, feel free to memail me for more specifics later since I cannot check my craft sources easily in my iPhone. Looking at it, it should be fairly easy to make a bunch.

Please don't let your (beautiful!) cat play with tinsel, it can cause all kinds of issues in their digestive system.

Not to threadsit but what we are talking about are little pom poms. And she doesn't eat them.
Any leads on crafting would be helpful.

I have seen bags of those exact pom-poms (bright colors, not black, though) at Michael's craft stores. If adding a ring is a must, I would hot glue as opposed to sewing (pom-poms basically have one connection point in the center and it's easy to miss with a needle. It will seem sewn together until it suddenly isn't)

I've seen these in pet stores too! Amazon has some, but it may be cheaper at a craft store. The cat specific ones are a bit bigger (probably the same size as a ping pong ball). I've seen them at PetSmart and Target too. Amazon also has the ring part which has a nice little platform to mount the pom.

My cat loves these crinkly mylar ball toys from Target.

This looks like the pompom on your ring. They're 1-inch.

No idea, but I have one that I could mail to you and your adorable kitty (I thought my cats would be interested, but they weren't). Memail if you're interested!
