Cats love playing with straws because they're light and easy to flip around; they also like to bite them because they're made of plastic and easily bitten.

My cats have also loved to play with straws, but if he's biting them and it's causing friction between him and his brother, substitute it with another, safer toy, that they can both enjoy. 'Fat Cat' makes some really great cat toys that are safe and also filled with a little catnip. Look for them in pet supply stores, Target, Walmart.
