This toy has been a favourite and I am amazed how it has survived. I am sure a shop-bought toy would have succumbed many years ago.
Both Kath and Kim have enjoyed playing with it but now that Kim is our sole cat it has been attacked quite frequently.
It gets held, kicked and bitten and, as you can see it is getting a little worse for wear. It is just an old sock rolled up and tucked into itself then sewn with a piece of bias binding as the tail. In other words odd items that were handy when I decided to make it.
It has always been affectionately known as The Rat.
