These fabrics can be used for the Cat Ball or the Cat Canoe. These fabrics are so new that I haven’t even made any cuts yet, so I haven’t created sample product for you to see. I’m really excited because these fabrics put me in a position to do larger production runs, and to create matching Cat Ball and Cat Canoe sets if anyone wants them.
The wonderful and far reaching blog, Moderncat.net is hosting a product giveaway featuring my one of a kind Easter Egg Cat Ball!
This unique cat bed is modified from my standard design to look like an Easter Egg. The tiny opening on top is intended for kitty play time. All you have to do is dangle a toy in front of that hole and kitty paws will start poking through!
I’m out of town this weekend and won’t be able to stay connected very well, so I thought I might just go ahead and put everyone on the alert! Umm….. just be sure to check Moderncat.net on Monday! Here is the link to the Moderncat Facebook page, too.
The Best Friends Animal Society LA center recently had a grand opening event. This amazing organization is really active in finding great homes for pets and in supporting spay and neuter programs. Cats and dogs are designed to have incredible numbers of offspring in their lifetimes, and this is something that responsible pet owners need to control. Additionally, continually going into heat can cause health problems in our pets.
I was approached by Jackson Galaxy and Moderncat.net and asked to make some donations to Best Friends community cat room. My business is really young, less than a year old, and it isn’t easy for me to afford donations, but I love making donations to events and groups like this!
I sent a Jumbo Cat Ball, two standard Cat Balls and a Cat Canoe.I really wanted to send stuff that black cats would look great in, since black cats experience a lower adoption rate.
The feedback I got was that everyone (inkludng teh hoomans) was excited to see how fabulous the Community Cat Room looks!
If you would like to donate one of my hand made Cat Balls to the Best Friends Animal Shelter, or to any other pet shelter, please contact me! Donations like this are really rewarding, and I will also offer a discount for charity purchases.
Here is a photo of my Cat Ball and Cat Canoe product displayed in their store on Upper Queen Anne Hill in Seattle. They selected a variety of my hand made cat bed products, so the selection is really different from store to store.
This Cat Ball was made with two small openings. I’ve never done this before (and for many reasons I’ll never do it again). Most cats can easily exit the Cat Ball through the small opening, but it can be difficult to enter the Cat Ball through the small opening because there is no weight inside, so he keeps pushing and pushing to enter, and eventually he pushed himself off the table….
…. And then he got back up on the table and did it again off the other side! I was in stitches!
