    If I won this one I’d ask for my prize to be sent along with the charity. My cat just loves to chew so wool toys last for about 30 seconds with him, but I think could find a few cats who these beautiful toys would last a lot longer with : )

    Cats love recycled items as toys! My kitties love when I put catnip inside an old sock and tie it in a knot. The cats at Alley Cat Rescue would also love to play with some of Melissa’s home made toys!

    Love these! I would donate to the NYC Feral Cat Initiative space I’ve been volunteering in. We do TNR work and find great adoptable cats along the way… but until they find their forever home, they have to live in a cage. So toys are always welcome!

    How great that these are made this way. My guys LOVE mice. I’m sure the ones at the shelter, Habitat for Cats ( ) would love them too.

  42. 192

    The charity I’d pick is Santa Barbara Humane Society

  43. 193

    Very cute! Our local shelter is The Sterling Animal Shelter.

    Very fun toys my four would love them but the kitties at

  46. 196

    These receycled mice are great. I’m sure the kitties at Brigid’s Crossing would love them too

  47. 197

    I love to reuse and recycle things. Couple of days ago I filled an old mascot with a catnip. Cats love it. Those mice are a very good idea and I’m sure our cats will love it too.

    I don’t know who should be donated, because I don’t live in the USA and I don’t have my favourite charity. If it could be a place in my country (Poland) I’d donate Towarzystwo Opieki nad Zwierzętami (Animal Care Association) in my city: (they take care about dogs from our local animal shelter, which is quite poor, and quite often they find them a new home, and also they care about free living cats in our city – food, medical care etc.) but if it couldn’t be – I’ll let You decide. :-)

    Such a cute way to incorporate the holidays! And my charity is the Calgary Humane Society,
