At Moderncat Studio, we love experimenting with different materials, especially all natural materials like cotton. We have two new creations, designed and made by guest designer Gerda Lobo, that I know you and your cats will love. First is the Cuna cat bed, crocheted with soft, thick cotton piping. The curved sides are perfect for snuggling and the textured surface is immediately attractive to cats. Measuring 15 inches across and 3.5″ tall, the Cuna cat bed fits cats up to 15 lbs. comfortably, as Gerda’s cat Stanley is demonstrating below.
Next we have the Patada kicker cat toy. Kitties love big toys for grabbing and kicking, and that’s just what these toys are designed for. Each Patada (Spanish for “a kick”) is crocheted using natural cotton twine that will stand-up to kitty’s roughhousing. The Patadas are lined with cotton muslin and filled with a sturdy foam insert. Measuring 5.5 inches long by 2 inches in diameter, the Patada kicker toy is the perfect size for a kitty wrestling match.
Both the Cuna cat bed and the Patada kicker toy can be machine washed. The bed can go in the dryer and we recommend air drying the toy. Cuna and Patada are available from the Moderncat Studio Etsy shop, Cuna is $45 and Patada is $12.
