YAY. I can't remember exactly how i made it (silly me) but i'm pretty sure this is how i did it -

cast on 19 stitches

knit all rows until piece meausures around 2 inches in length. bind off.

fold the piece in half so that the bound of and casted on ends are on the top/bottom. sew up the side and one of the ends. fill with stuffing (or anything fluffy really). if you are going to give it to your cat...sprinkle some dried cat nip in side before you sew up the other end. and lastly.........sew up the last end. but when i sewed up the ends i'm pretty sure i pulled the yarn through like a drawstring.  Wink the end

Cute!  I've been wanting to do something like this.  What kind of yarn did you use?  I've been thinking of using Sugar 'N Creme because it seems strong enough to stand up to my kitten, for a little while anyways.
