One Happy Kitty!

12/31/2013 Laura Watkins 0 Comments

I know I'll get all sorts of crud for this, but I had my cat's Christmas shopping done first this year. It isn't that I'm some crazy cat lady who spoils her pets like crazy...well...ok, I'll give you that one! But money was especially tight this year and I didn't plan on buying the animals anything. Then I saw these in Lauren's shop and knew I had to give them a try! They seemed to be exactly what I was looking for and they were really inexpensive, especially for being hand-made!!

(Video below)

So, I bought a set of cat toys from Craft Coalition for Dobby's stocking, and he is LOVING them! I've had a terrible time finding good toys for him because my dog, Daisy, tends to eat them... Dobby loves the balls you find with the jingle bells in them, but Daisy chews them up, same with cute little plush toys! These little "Cat or Ferret Toy Jiggaly Balls" turned out to be perfect because they're a combination of the two, and my dumb dog (I love her, but SERIOUSLY?!!!) actually leaves them alone! They're different enough from her own toys that when I tell her to "leave it," she actually does.

Dobby was intrigued with these at first, but lost interest after a few days, resorting to his usual destructive--climb up on the table/counter top and bat at whatever he can knock to the ground--behavior. I gave the toys a quick dip in the catnip bag, and now he seems to get the idea.

I love that these have a rattling sound when they move (like a small ball bearing rolling around inside), and that my cat can grab hold of them with his claws and bite at them! Not to mention that the craftsmanship on these things is beautiful! Absolutely perfect!




Sorry for the terrible lighting in the video, I'll see if I can fix it.
