Homemade Cat Toys and Accessories
We have rounded up some popular, talented people who create handcrafted cat toys and accessories.
Prince Pan Pan’s Cat Blankets are actually made by his human mother, who prefers to remain anonymous. Prince Pan Pan takes her orders, while Prince Pippin is Quality Control and Assurance Engineer (downsizing/doing more with less). On facebook they all can be located at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Neptune-The-Special-Cat/
260978582681#!/PrincePanpan?fref=ts . Prince Pan Pan’s blankets feature very thick fleece, with a variety of cat patterned fabric, which allows them to create custom orders.
The edges of each blanket are either knotted or braided, and they also offer custom embroidering of your cat’s name. The braided edge blanket is their signature blanket.
I couldn’t believe it when they said they had the perfect pattern for our Mr. Moo. We had to order Mr. Moo a custom blanket, since he was new to our house, and all our other cats had blankets!!! As you see Mr. Moo’s custom blanket pretty much matches Mr. Moo!!!
Prince Pan Pan even embroidered Mr. Moo’s name in it, so our other cats would know this is his blanket/bed.
Blankets are $25 for the size we got, and they make perfect beds when folded in half, as we do. Inquire to their facebook page for more information and available sizes.
Sharon L. Dreyer knits dog sweaters and cat blankets and donates all proceeds to the501C3 she volunteers forARI –Animal Rescue, Inc. www.animalrescueinc.org. All of her
blankets are knitted with 4 separate 4ply strands of 100% mediuweight acrylic yarn that are machine washable and dryable. The cost of these blankets are a minimum of a $20 donation to ARI, plus 7.50 shipping in the U.S.
4 of my 5 cats like them because they are so plush and thick. They also seem to see colors, because Neptune likes his Texas Rangers Red White and Blue team color blanket, and Tiger likes her feminine peach, cream, sky blue and lilac blanket. We fold them in half, so they are even warmer and thicker. They take up an average love seat cushion when laid flat.
You can use these blankets as pads, for your cat to lie on, and they also protect yourfurniture from collecting cat hair.
Sharon will knit you a custom blanket if you specify colors. She also accommodates sports fans, and can match virtually all professional teams, if you tell her the colors.
Seasonal and holiday colors are also available.
Lead time for blankets is about 1 week from receiving payment.
As far as dog sweaters, she offers all sizes, and in custom colors, seasonal and holiday colors, too. Prices vary depending on size. Contact her for more information on either
dog sweaters or cat blankets:
Kitty Collage grows their own Catnip (Trappers Treats), and offers cat pillows, cat toys and packets of catnip for sale. Prices are listed on their website, along with photos. They make medium sized pillows for cats to sleep on, and they also have little mini-pillow your cat can bat around or just sniff as it walks by.
Two of my 5 cats have Kitty Collage sleeping pillows, and they both use them every day.
Kitty Collage also offers custom orders, seasonal patterns, and several themes. We ordered beach themed pillows in January, for our friends on the east coast, and we received Christmas pillows in October for Mr. Moo and Neptune.
Sometimes the bulk containers of store bought catnip is either too strong or used up, but Kitty Collage offers a perfect blend of catnip, which allows a cat to sleep on a pillow containing catnip. Mr. Moo, my formerly stray cat thinks pillows filled with catnip are the greatest invention after blankets.
One of my cats is deaf, so his nose is much more sensitive than a hearing cat’s nose is, but he tells me Kitty Collage catnip is perfect, and not too overwhelming. I also have a
cat who is now addicted to Kitty Collage catnip, and she carries the small catnip pillow in her mouth to wherever she is going to rest or hang out at.

The picture above shows mousie cat toys, crocheted of course, in a variety of colors, and also available in seasonal themes, with catnip inside, and bells, to make this toy mouse twice as fun. Mousie is $4.00 each or 3 for $10. Super Mousies are also available, which are bigger mice, with presumable more catnip and extra bells, which Angela sells for $6 each.
This picture displays a different kind and shape of a cat toy, and it appears to be appealing to cats, or at least would arouse their curiosity. Add light weight and spiral head, with a pom pom at the end of the tail,
and it seems like the perfect cat toy to bat around, fling airborne, or just attack. Angela sells these for $5.50 each, or 3 for $12. These can also be used as bookmarks.
This picture features a catnip bell door hanger. Your cat is supposed to ring, or learn to ring the bell when it wants out, but more than likely, your cat will sit there and inhale the catnip and then bat the ball around, which activates the bells, which is sure to make for a pleasant day for the cats’ human!!!! Nevertheless, it still looks fun, for a cat. I bet it smells even better to them. Angela sells these for $10 each. All items are available in custom or seasonal colors.
