This cat toy is shaped after a guitar, and the natural fabric body is accented with leather sound hole and neck, and is filled with over 1 cup of highest quality organic cat nip--no other fillers, so if your cat does manage to tear through the fabric, there is nothing to worry about your pet ingesting anything except natural catnip.
I hand cut the toy from a variety of fabrics I have in my stash, primarily 100% cotton or linen that are pre-washed in my smoke-free home.
The listing is for one toy, and presently the order would be randomly filled, but if you have a strong color or pattern preference, please let me know in the order comments and I will do my best to match that (I'll let you know before shipping), but I cannot guarantee the pattern availability at this time.
The toy body is about 3.5" at the widest, and 4" high body, and 6.5-7" tall with the neck, and about 0.5" thick.
I use thin black leather for the sound hole, and for the neck black or brown leather, or another color that coordinates with the fabric if it's a brighter fabric body. The neck leather is 0.5" wide, and about 0.125" thick.
I fold the leather over for a loop at the head, so you can loop a string thru it to make it a pull toy. I then stitch these all down onto themselves & the toy body, further replicating the image of a guitar with strings (albeit only 3, but cat's don't have long enough fingers to manage 6 strings, do they?).
The toy is in a cellophane bag that is sealed with a large sticker of my own design, as shown in a group photo.
Please note the photos with my cat is of her testing the prototype--I removed the cutout in the body, as well as folded over the neck, and thus adding stitching for the versions listed.
I should be able to ship these in a small box or envelop for first class mail, and shipping will be calculated when you place your order. But for more than 2 for any order I'll review shipping options for most efficient & economical, e.g. a small flat rate box may be best for 3 or more!
And if you are interested in ordering 3 or more toys, please convo me first, as I can offer a special bulk pricing and arrange any specific color/pattern selection.
