Handmade toys.

One of our feral friends (and my most favorite feral cat) loves toys. So today I was making toys for him,
a photo of a black oriental shorthair cat lying among clothes and DIY supplies sniffing on a toy which was made for a feral cat of Montenegro

and Usyaka was test-driving them.

I’ll make some toys for Usyaka too. She likes a bit different ones.

    She looks pretty excited by THOSE toys! Has she been fibbing to you about liking only one kind of toy?! >:-D

    I would like to make those. How did you do it?! Hmmm…. Cat toys to raise $$ for feral kitties! Hmmmm…. ??

      I laughed at this one.:)) No, of course, she’s curious about all toys and new things in general. But she gets more excited and even more playful when a thing is smaller, so she can throw it around. Big ones she proclaims “dead” too quickly and starts consuming them straight away.

      I don’t have a lot of experience in sewing, so those things were not made too neatly, just neat enough for a feral cat to play and to lose it somewhere in bushes eventually.

      I simply took some old clothes, cut out the parts that had interesting design or fabric on them, and put them together. I also attached some ropes and ribbons. These ones are filled with old clothes as well. The next ones I made are a bit more complicated. I’ll make a post about them soon 🙂

      As for raising money by selling toys like this – as I’ve said before – I’m still not very good at making them. 🙂

  3. Those look like some fun toys! That top photograph is great! Something about the composition and the colors and shape of Usyaka’s body in that shot are really captivating.

      Thank you 🙂 I took the first one accidentally. Usyaka was just touching things around, while I was sewing and I thought she looked cute doing that, so I picked up my camera and snapped that photo.

      The toys turned out to be a lot of fun, indeed. 🙂

    She looks like an Indonesian puppet, full of ritual significance.

  7. I’m curious about the feral cat – it can’t be too very feral if it will play with you? Of course Ms U steals the show again and always 🙂

      He knows me well. I took care of him for more than a month and we’ve been through some tough times, I took him to vets and so on. So he’s tamed. He plays with humans, even sits on a lap 🙂
      Here he is, my favorite-guy-without-one-eye.

      The eye was badly damaged, probably, by a larger male cat. He had an operation and the wound’s healed now.
