Thanks for the review! It does look difficult; kudos to you for figuring it out! I'm glad kitty likes it.

I've had this pattern for ages but have never opened the evelope! My fear was that I'd make it... and my cat would turn her nose up at it! Great idea to put cat nip inside. This is really, really cute! Congrats on conquering what sounds like a difficult-to-follow pattern.

That's totally cute, never saw anything like that before. Too bad the instructions are so bad but you really did a great job!

That is too cute. Isn't it strange how some patterns that LOOK relatively straightforward, are NOT. Great save, I love your fabrics...

I bought this pattern at a $.99 sale. I picked out the fabric and got stumped when it came to finding the 1/2 inch foam. Drove all over town trying to find some and just gave up. I was going to make this for my grandaughter's cat. It is so cute though. Jackie

Oh this is so adorable. I would attempt it immediately except that none of our 3 cats could fit their ample bodies in the mouth of the cute fish. I'd have to make one of the wide mouthed bass! But cute, cute, cute. -Lily

Oh, that is too cute! With my luck, I'd slave over something like this and my kitty would turn up her nose at it!!

I'm laughing at because I started this project as a Christmas present two years ago, before I declared it as a UFO, and made a crinkly bag instead. : ) Thank you for sharing your experience. --I like how it all turned out, including the lips! :)

OMG that is the cutest thing I've seen in a long time! I have got to make one for my cat Ariel. And like you other gals, I'm hesitant too........knowing my finnicky cat will turn her nose up to it. Hey, it'll be fun making it though.......Great job on a very cute project!

Ha! This is SO cute. :o)) I'd say Lokipypywakiwak is living the life of Riley (or should I say Jonas) lying in the belly of the whale, getting high on catnip. :o))

Ok, way too cute--even if it was a difficult challenge. Glad your cat enjoys the thing (the catnip is inspired!)

I love it! But my cat would never get in something like that. You have one spoiled kitty and I'm glad he likes it!

There are 5 of us in our little Quilt Club and now they're trying to teach me to sew. At least the cats won't care if it looks like ICK.
