The Cat’s Meow

By Twistie

If you’re a cat lover like me, I’m betting you’ll love these adorable catnip toys. I wish I’d made them! But then the sewing would probably be all wonky. If you want to learn how to make them, head on over to and check out the instructions there.

Or maybe crochet is more your game. That doesn’t prevent you from being able to drug… er… entertain your cat with a bit of nip! Just head over to yumyumyarn’s Etsy shop for a free PDF of instructions for this fabulous fish skeleton catnip toy.

Oh, and if you’re wondering about how cats too big to be house pets react to catnip, this helpful video (pointed out to me by my good friend and partner in crime, Fabrisse) may answer your questions. What’s more, pretty much anyone can make the toys featured in the film! Of course you might not really enjoy cleaning up after it when your cat is done playing.

    I love a good kitty toy. I usually make these to sell every year for my cat shelter’s open house: (I checked with the designer and since all the proceeds go to a charity she was cool with it, but your mileage may vary.) Knitted vegetable toys are also fun to stuff with nip and give to the gatos.
