Alas, a toy for our felines.
This post is for those who have cats at home, or for people who simply love cats. You see, I have two adult cats and two kitties, and all are very playful and energetic. So I was very happy to stumble upon this simple yet very helpful tips of getting my cats personal plaything called the "Happy Socks".
A Happy Sock is a big, fluffy catnip toy that can be made by taking a sock, stuffing it with a combination of polyester fiberfill and catnip, and then tying a knot in the ankle. The result is a durable, huggable toy that cats can lick, kick, and enjoy for countless hours.
Happy Sock catnip toys are more than mere playthings for stressed-out cat in strange surroundings. A whiff of catnip can be very therapeutic. They say, a soft, fluffy Happy Sock is a feline equivalent of a cuddly teddy bear.
Finally Kirst, here is something we can do that do not need the like of Tracey's artistic talent for our little furry babies! It doesn't have to be pretty although you can use a variety of colored socks to make one as pretty as you want them to be. They can be made from almost any kind of sock. And cats will love Happy Sock catnip toys because they're big, fluffy and durable.
If you readers can make more of these Happy Socks, then you can donate them to any cat shelter near you. I am sure those kitties will be very happy to have them.
Do cats in your shelter Ray, have these Happy Socks?
