Introducing Upcycled Cat Toys

Meet the newest member of our Cat Toy team, the Upcycled Critter Cat Toys!

These toys are stitched up from the fabric of discarded clothing, with a little work (and a lot of catnip!) they have been given a new purpose in life! There are four shapes - Mouse, Bird, Fish, and Ball. The Mice and Bird varieties come with a string (or two!) of hemp twine, which - along with the catnip inside the toys - drives cats bonkers! I've also been working on a line of "Kick Sticks" which are stuffed tubes of fabric (socks!) that also contain catnip! Lela is modeling one below:

Look for them on Etsy now!

And now for more from the Kitty Modeling shoot:

Norman was camera shy, but I caught this when he wasn't looking!

Another Beautiful Hike

In Montana in summertime there is nothing like a hike. We went over to the Mountain Horse Drinking Trail two weekends ago and captured some of the beauty of nature, and I'd like to share it with you :)

It is a gorgeous trail, with spectacular views, and is perfect for hiking with dogs! It was difficult for me, but I'm out of shape, and there were people of all ages going up and already coming back down when we got there at 8:30. These two were some of the ones we met coming down on our way up:

What well behaved dogs! I bet their owner got a great shot of them overlooking the valley below us! I wonder if I could get Lela and Norman to pose on a mountainside..... ;)
