8  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / stop cat litter spillage on: July 11, 2005 08:42:53 AM
this is a really simple yet effective idea:

I had a real problem with my cat kicking litter all over my floor so my bf made me this:



its a kitty toilet/wardrobe holder.

the box gives them pleanty of room to dig, they get their privacy and theres no mess or litter trailed across the floor.

I'm planning to decorate the wooden ikea chest with cat pictures as it holds all my kitty toys.
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / catnip/ feather carrot **tute** on: July 11, 2005 08:18:21 AM
Heres a tutorial for an easy, peasy cat toy my kitties love.

It doesnt matter how scruffy it looks, your cats wont care.

But remember the golden rule: however long you spend making cat toys is directly proportionate to how much they will ignore them!

You will need:

One piece orange felt (Do it double thickness if your cats are particularly rambunctious)

Green craft feathers

Orange cotton

Stuffing or cotton wool

Catnip (optional)


Method:

Take your square of orange felt and fold it in half if you want it double thick. If not cut it in half diagonally so its a triangle.

Fold it again and stitch along side the loose edges (not the top or you cant stuff it!) so its an empty orange cone.


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v325/nickerly_kitten/carrott2.bmp

Turn it inside out for a neater finish

Stuff with catnip (if wanted) and stuffing.

Sew halfway along the top then place or glue your feathers inside. Stitch all over your feathers so they cant be torn out. Finish sewing top of cone closed

Ta da!!!

Will post pics later, for now please make do with my paint efforts.
