Catnip Mice Update

 Over the holidays, I knit up a bevy of catnip mice. And cats all over love them. 

The pattern is a modification of a free Felted Catnip Mouse on Ravelry (the link is in a post a bit ago).
These little guys have been a hit. We gave one to a friend's cat on New Year's Eve. She never deigns to even sniff at catnip, and for the entire night, she ignored it, until we had to move it off of her favorite blanket so that she had her bed back. But after all of the guests left, apparently she went wild and did some crazy playing with her mouse. Another friend wrote to tell me that her cat brings the mouse to her every morning, and presents it for approval that she is doing the expected work of a cat in defending the home against micies.
