DIY: Cat Nip Pillows

Whenever we go on vacation I feel so guilty leaving Mr. Paws.  Our cat-loving friends come to the house to check up on him, but the little guy just misses his family and gets very sad (well, in all honestly I think he'd be fine if Lily left and never came back).

To help get him through the week I made him some super potent cat nip pillows with cat nip from my garden.  Nothing like a little natural mind-eraser to calm separation anxiety.


  • dried cat nip
  • polyester stuffing
  • fabric scraps cut into rectangles or squares
  • thread, scissors, sewing machine/needle, iron

Step 1:  Fold fabric squares in half, inside out.  Then fold back the open ends 1/2"and press with iron.

Step 2:  Sew the left and right sides of your square so you have an open pocket. 

Step 3:  Turn your pocket right-side out.  Stuff the pocket with a mix of polyester stuffing and cat nip - don't be stingy with the nip!

Step 4: Sew up the open end of your pocket and make your cat beg for this happy treat.
