    I find that everything in my house becomes a cat toy.

    I have a strong feeling that my dog would eat that cat toy.

  3. Cathy says:

    Might as well save yourself the trouble and just use a dried up hairball your cat puked up LOL.

    hum….interesting. I generally just toss the fur in the trash. No need to keep it around. This guy should start making sweaters.

    So true Cathy! — I know for a fact that one of my cats would eat it, then probably puke it back up, he doesn’t even wait until I pry the hair off the brush before he tries to start eating it!…regardless of whom I’m brushing.

    Now filling pillows…there’s an idea!

    Yes a clean hairball, What a discovery.

    I have been seeking a replacement for the fur mice from China I refuse to buy. Since no one seems to want to sell fur mice from American Rabbit fur this might work.

    Crafters use a felting pick on wool to mat wool into a felt. I wonder if that would work on cat hair?

    His cat is adorable and looks so very happy. He must be a great owner.

    Yeah, my cat always just wants to eat those, then throw them up.

    She really likes the PetStages toys, especially the dental cleaning ones that she can chew on.

    i just rescued a seal point himalyan so a sweater or at least some fetching mittens( no damn pun intended even though the cats do seem to view me as a cat toy) might not be out of the question…

    so does anyone have any himmie grooming tips? ive never owned a cat with this much freakin’ fur- she looks like a shag covered ottoman…and the shelter said she was not real cooperative at the groomers. i have a feeling she generates more than her share of cigar shaped cat toys.

  9. Diane says:

    I thought the whole idea of brushing the cat was so the fur doesn’t end up in her stomach.

    I bought some mink tails from a local furrier and made them into cat toys. My cat loves bunny tails since she eats rabbit, and also the mink tails. At five bucks a tail, they are cheaper than some of the ’specialty’ cat toys she won’t even look at.

    But the cat’s favorite toys are toilet paper rolls, half a pistachio nut seed, and pencils. She’s a little on the strange side.
