Write, take naps, and take another nap

I am starting my own business: catnip toys


I need to check the quality of the catnip for the toys. 

Catnip is one of my favorite herbs. I don’t mind if it is not organic. The only problem is I don’t have any thumbs to open up the package.

My staff has been sewing several prototypes for catnip toys. Long rectangles, smaller round shapes, and bears and kittens.

It is a new world out there. I don’t have to find a company to market my ideas. I can find my own markets. Seth Godin in his book, The Icarus Deception, has inspired me to start my own business.

No one is going to pick you. Pick yourself.

Catnip toys.

What cat doesn’t enjoy a dried herb?

Would you like one for your cat? I will let you know when they are ready.

    Pooh, my cat Taff recommends you add straws to your line of cat toys. He finds them endlessly entertaining. They are cheap, plentiful, and easy to replace when they get chewed on. You don’t need thumbs, either. It wouldn’t add much to your profits, though.

    Oh, Pooh, we unfortunately lost both of our cats to old age, but I know they would have loved your catnip toys. Good luck with your venture.

    • Judy, Judy, Judy, I am so sorry about the loss of your cats. If you ever get another kitten, preferably two, please let me know. Thank you for your good wishes with my business adventure.
      All the best,
      Love Pooh

    Great to connect with you Pooh…I’ve had cats and kittens from barns and other scary places…tooo many to count. I am maybe in the market for a very cuddly feline who will not be a princess. xo

    • Oh Nancy, what a great idea. A cuddly feline who will not be a princess. May I suggest that you get two cuddly felines at the same time? Perhaps from the same litter. I was a solitary cat for seven years, before Charles came to live here. Cats like other cats.
      Please let me know if you do get a cat. I am writing a Cat 101 manual for humans.

  • I don’t have a cat. Do you have anything for dogs?
