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.
