Today I decided to use some leftovers from recent costume making, and create a catnip toy for Julius and Brutus out of them.
First I went to the petstore and got some dried catnip, and then I sat down and created this:
The catnip is inside the little velvet bag, and I added a tiny silk bow and rose, and some feathers. I put all of this on a piece of black elastic.
When I was done, it was time for some animal-friendly animal-testing :) Luckily for me, I have two catnip addicted cats, so they automatically loved it!
Here's a pic of Brutus playing with it:
I'd say 'Mission Accomplished'. I've had a lot of fun creating this, so I'm planning on making more catnip toys. Next one will be a little catnip bat, and I have several more ideas. I'll keep you posted!
What do you guys think of my newest kitteh-creation?
