My cat, Kizzie, has been really needy lately. She either parks herself wherever I happen to be, or she meows at me whenever I walk by where she is laying. She clearly needed a diversion.....something to do besides focusing on me.
I remembered a small jar of dried catnip that I had on a shelf. So I took an old sock, tied a knot in the toe end of it, filled the heel with catnip and tied another knot above the catnip. Kizzie wasn't too hard to find. She was laying on the kitchen floor next to the chair I was sitting in while making her new toy.
When I tossed the toy on the floor for her, she went nuts. She loved it. I took some pictures because it was so funny to watch her playing with that silly catnip toy.
Noodle tried to get in on the act, but Kizzie just wasn't into sharing.
After Kizzie had played with the toy for most of the morning, the other two took a turn. That one silly catnip sock toy has kept all three cats busy and amused and out of my hair all day.
There is some catnip that grows wild along a fence in my neighborhood. I guess I will have to go pick some and dry it and make a couple more toys. Who knew that such a simple thing as a catnip-filled sock would keep three felines so busy. I wonder if they need to go to Kitty Detox?
