Stuffed animal Hug Me Slug art toys with a donation to help cats and kittens

Fleece Hug Me Slug Art Toys by Elizabeth Ruffing, assorted colorsI’ve added a few more 7-inch stuffed animal fleece Hug Me Slug art toys to my Etsy toy shop, with a donation from each going to help cats and kittens in our community.  My toys with a portion being donated to help kitties can be found here. There are some sock kittens in the mix as well.

Josie playing with catnip toys from Alley Cats and Angels of NC rescueI went to a Christmas party for a local cat rescue group this month. They had a beautiful tree, lots of yummy food, and a secret Santa gift exchange. I brought cat toys, thinking anyone there could use them. I also came home with cat toys. These are handmade by the rescue volunteers.

They will ship them too, if anyone is interested in stocking stuffers for their kitties. If anyone would like some, they have an assortment of handmade catnip toys available on their site. I also made a tutorial for making catnip toys, including catnip squares, cigars, and kickers, with patterns I made for them.

As you can see, slugs are coming and going around here. I’ve cut off the custom listings for now, but I still have plenty of ready-made toys available. I ship Priority Mail, within the United States, which usually takes 2-3 to arrive. I usually ship out within a day or two, giving me time to make their personalized hang tags and get to the Post Office.

I even went out and got some gift bags, just in case anyone needed gift wrap. The postage goes up for this, as I need a larger box, but a few dollars usually covers a gift bag, greeting card, and the extra postage.

  • […] As I mentioned in my last post, we have unexpected kitty guests, and I have no car available during the day. I usually get catnip pouches and catnip cigars from Alley Cats and Angels rescue, but since I was home and needed to unwind, I thought I’d try to make my own from what I had in the house. The rescue sells similar catnip pouches, cigars, larger “kickers”, and catnip knots, for fundraising, which you can get from them. Just ask them for details. They are handmade by Tia, Jill, and Maria and are very reasonably priced. Our cats love them. […]
