Making organic catnip toys can be so easy and profitable too. They can make great gifts for people to give as gifts for their hard to buy for friends.
If you love to sew or a crafts expert, then making catnip toys can be a breeze. First you need a good quality catnip. You can either grow your own and dry it, or buy it from a reputable health food store that has human grade organic loose catnip.
A couple of ideas would be take get some orange felt or duck cloth and a sew it into a long shape like a carrot and stuff it with some fiber fill and catnip. Close the end off with some grean yarn to make a carrot top.
Another idea would be to get some brown felt fabric and make a short fat angular shape like a mouse, fill it with fiber fill and catnip, sew the large end shut. Use a sharpie pen and draw eyes and whiskers for the face. Then sew a long piece of cord for the tail. It would be okay if it frays as long as they pieces can’t come lose and cause a health hazard for your kitty.
To make these original organic catnip toys even more enjoyable and fun for you and your feline friend, would be to tie a long piece of yarn to a wooden dowel and pull the toy for your cat to chase. Or tie the toy to a solid object like a door handle for your cat to play with by themselves.
Think about making large quantities of these and selling them at your local crafts shows or setting up your own online business selling your cat toys through the internet.
