She Stole My Knitting!

One day I decided that I wanted to learn how to knit! I picked up the supplies and two days later, I had a scarf. Angie, my silly grey and white cat, wouldn't stop sitting on the scarf, she thought it was the greatest thing! It had me curious. I created a small yarn piece for some sort of project (I don't remember what it was supposed to be anymore), and Angie decided to take the piece from me and use it as a toy instead! It rolled up nicely, so she carried it over to the stairs and proceeded to bounce around with it for several minutes, going from stair to stair! I've never seen her act so crazy before!

The idea popped into my head to create unique cat toys for cats. They are meant to be odd, unusual and very different. That's their charm and purpose! How many times have we bought pretty store bought toys for our cats and they go ignored? Cats have a hard time resisting the urge to attack these weird cat toys. I create them with a cat's senses in mind- sound, visual, and scent- when I make each piece, to keep them interested and playing.

We started getting into fashion accessories when I was tired of the store bought pieces that didn’t even last a month before looking trashy. The cats would happily lose those collars in places I’d never find them again! Once I started sewing in 2020, I decided to make them each a special collar out of fabric they picked out of my stash. Months later, the collars still look new and the cats all really enjoy showing them off! And I’m surprised and pleased to say, they really took well to wearing their cute bandanas too!

Finally, we jumped on the face mask demand in early 2020 , and helped supply much needed face masks to the public. Our design was so popular that we kept them up for sale! Our masks also work great for projects around the house, such as baking, cleaning, working with wood, and even keeping you comfortable in the bitter cold (in lieu of a fussy scarf). Please note that our cats DO NOT “help” with the mask process, to ensure they arrive without hair or dander on the fabric.

Frequently asked questions
Are Oddball Cat Toys durable?

Yes! These cat toys are designed to withstand normal cat play, unlike most store bought toys. Yarn and felt pieces are carefully selected, not only for their color and pattern, but their durability. All sides and ends are reinforced, because they are the weakest parts of any cat toys.

Some toys have feathers, boas, strings, etc. and I'm concerned for my cat's safety.

While I use safe, non-toxic materials, some cats really enjoy chewing pieces off toys! I am more than happy to leave these extras off of any toy that you'd like to order. If it isn't an option, please send me a note with your order, and I'll get it done!

My cat hates Catnip, Valerian, Bells, etc.

No problem! Again, each cat toy can be customized, so I can leave off any scents or sounds that aren't pleasing to your cat. I should have options in the drop down menus, or you can send me a note with your order.

Wholesale availability

We currently are not offering wholesale opportunities, but hopefully we are able to in the near future!

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I do custom work when possible! Please send me a note with your ideas, and I'll let you know if it can be done!

What is Valerian? What is Silvervine?

They are all safe forms of Catnip! Cats normally react more strongly to these versus the standard Catnip. PLEASE NOTE that Valerian has a trademark light "dirty feet" smell when its fresh and potent. The smell stays with the toy however, and will not stink up your home! Valerian is OPTIONAL. Silvervine has a strong Catnip scent.
