Mouse Cat Toy!

Hope you all had a great week. I am so glad that it is Friday once again. This week seemed like two in one for some reason. I think it was because I just wasn't that busy at work. I would rather be busy than bored any day. Anyway ...

Before Christmas I was going all over town trying to get some play toys for my cats Oliver and Smokey and when I finally found them they were over a dollar each and my dog Lilly liked them a bit too much. She was eating them. We soon discovered that the centre of these toys looked like cement and I really didn't want Lilly eating them so I decided to do something about it.

I can't really take full credit for the design of these mice as we already had one of them here from our other cat Alex who passed away in August.

The pattern really is quite simple actually. It is only plain knitting. I started off with making them with 15 stitches and ended up only using 8 stiches. I found that my cats liked them better when they were smaller. I must have made about 15 of these so anyone I knew who had a cat I gave some to for Christmas. They are stuffed with catnip which makes the cats like them all the more.

They were a real hit anyway.

What do you think of them?

Hope you enjoy your weekend!
