11.HOW TO MAKE WOOLLY CAT TOYS

 

The cats & kittens that spend day after day in pens & enclosures waiting for new homes, love to have woolen toys to play with.

 

 

 

 

 

Comfortable bedding & something to play with can make a huge difference to animals. As well as this, many cats & kittens become quite attached to their bedding or toys. Heres how to make your own familiar toys, any time you need a new one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bedding, toys & blankets need continual cleaning at Romney House, this can take its toll on the materials. As well as this, many of the cats & kittens become quite attached to their bedding or toys. To help ease them into their new homes they often take their familiar things & or comfort blankets with them.

 

More of the very kindly knitted bedding, blankets or toys, are always needed & gratefully appreciated by the cats at Romney House
