Royal Blue and Teal Catnip Squid Squiggle Bug Knit Cat Toy


This is yet another species of the Catnip Squiggle Bug. This one is closely related to the squid and is aquatic, although it can be found on land as well ;) The head/ body of the cat toy was knit holding one strand of royal blue and one strand of teal acrylic yarn together, creating a very tightly woven, thick fabric. I filled the toe of a piece of pantyhose with my own home grown organic dried catnip and used that to stuff the head. I really crammed a lot of catnip in there to make this a nice and potent cat toy! The three tentacles are each a different length and were crocheted into curly corkscrews. One is teal, one is royal blue, and the third is a mix of the two yarns. Two multifaceted teal beads were securely sewn on as eyes. From the top of the Squiggle Bug's head to the tip of the longest tentacle he measures about 8 inches long and the head is about 2 inches wide. The toy is fairly lightweight so cats can easily pick it up and carry it around, or drag it around by the tentacles. My cats love these toys and I'm sure yours will too! Better yet, I'll include a free bag of my home grown organic dried catnip with every order!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

My cats, Calcifer and Ginko were the inspiration behind the creation of Catnip Squiggle Bugs. I watch them play and try to figure out what would make the perfect toy for each of them. They have different styles of play, so I wanted to create toys that would appeal to both of them (as well as all the other cats out there!). Ginko like to carry his toys around, so he can really sink his teeth into the knitting and get a good grip on this lightweight toy. Calcifer like long dangley things, so that's where the tentacles come in. And of course they both love my catnip!

What a lovely transaction from start to finish! Great communication and fast shipping from this artisan who has a personable and helpful attitude. Michelle really knows how to make her customers feel important! My cat Chester tried to help me "open" the shipping envelope that had this catnip in it, so I guess he could smell it through two sealed bags! I can't wait to make a toy for him to try it out!
