well, congratulations to the kitties. it is officially past their first birthday, and one year from the day they were rescued. what a year it has been! this troublesome pair has been the source of a lot of mischief, but even more happiness and fun. i didn’t need to be worried about if the cats were going to like their toys–they loved them. i gave them to the cats one at a time, and stuart always pounced on the toy first, would play (and growl to keep ben away) until i put out a new toy, at which time ben would finally get to test drive the gift.
before i get to the pictures, i would like to show the pictures of the felted rattle toy i did–he turned out quite cute! i felted around a plastic bell so it has a rattle sound when the cats bat him around. well, and more specifically, i’d like to show the before….and after…of my little creature:
um, yeah. to say they loved this birdie would be an understatement. stu would not leave it alone for about 15 minutes straight, at which time ben got a hold of him…we didn’t see either of the cats for a while and then brandon and i got up to check on them and found tufts of yellow wool scattered around. i actually re-felted him, gave him BACK to the cats, and now he is in pieces again. i’m sure this will be a cycle of felt-destroy-felt-destroy-felt-destroy. they couldn’t get enough of him.
