    I have felt I was wondering what to do with. Now I know. I made the cork with feathers craft. The cats loved them. I think I will sew the catnip in cheesecloth before putting in form. Just in case they rip it open.

    Take the catnip and put it in a used clean sock. and mash it a bit. Never mind all this effort. A sock works just as well if not better because kitty can hold it and pump his her back legs against it. Plus i don’t like any kind of string with a cat toy. I mean is this for you or for the cat?
