Here is the cat toy:
[IMG]http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd171/gnathalie2/DSCF4185-1.jpg[/IMG]

It’s really easy to make and doesn’t take more than like half an hour!!!
Materials:
Size G hook
Chunky yarn in whatever colors you like (i used 4 different colors)
jingle bells (the larger ones)
Using any color:
5 sc in a ring
rd1: 2sc in each sc around (10 sc)
rd2: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (15 sc)
rd3-5: sc in each sc around (15 sc)
rd6: (sc2tog, sc in next sc) around (10 sc)
Insert jingle bell now
rd7: sc2tog around (5 sc)
rd8 & 9: sc in each sc around (5 sc)
Repeat rds 1-9 three more times, switching colors in round 1 if you want.
Fasten off, weave in loose ends, give to a cat!
Notes:
1. Do not use stuffing for this toy because it will muffle the jingle sound.
2. Make sure to buy the large jingle bells. I bought mine at Walmart ($1.97) and it was the package next to the ‘regular’ sized ones.
Enjoy!
Nathalie
make today a positive one!

I will have to try that. My cats love to play in my house plant. So maybe this will stop them from that!
