So I want to make some sort of little toy for my boyfriend's cat for Christmas this year (she hates me, and I'm hoping I can win her over with some cat nip) - does anyone have any idea how to go about doing this? I was thinking something along the lines of the little stuffed felt monsters, but how do I know if the felt is safe for the kitty? And I don't really understand cat nip, either. Do I just put cat nip in the toy, or something else, too? Essentially, any words of advice would help a ton, because I'm pretty clueless here.

Thanks in advance!

I would think that a cat would destroy felt pretty quickly - so I'd make it out of some sort of sturdier fabric.

Try using a heavy cotton, or even a uphulstry fabric - something that can't be easy torn apart or ripped. Try sewing the seams with tight stiching, maybe even two seans just to make sure it holds. Then stuff the inside with stuffing or even leftover fabric, then a teaspoon of catnip (I like organic catnip - it seems to have an extra "kick"). Be sure to watch out for things that can be chewed off and choked on (bells, ribbons, etc).
