Two additional catnip toys for Halloween
Some days it feel like I'm chasing daylight.  Today I was taking photos of new Halloween items for the shop, and kept having to move my setup because the sun kept moving!  It worked out in the end, though, and now all of this year's Halloween items are listed on Etsy.

Pretty soon we will be setting the clocks back, and chasing daylight even more, before the sun starts to go down earlier and earlier each day.  Time to savor every minute!

Now that Halloween items are all listed, and with only one more Thanksgiving item to list, the upcoming weeks will allow us to shift and focus on Christmas (can't believe how quickly that time of year is approaching).
A couple weeks ago we rolled our our two thanksgiving items - a stylish turkey bandana and a round turkey toy.  This fabric was too cute to pass up!  Don't you agree?  (*bandana will be listed soon!)

Today's set of Halloween toys can easily be paired up!  Two pillow toys and two cute bandanas in spooooky fabric.  How it would be if someone dressed their cat in a bandana Halloween night to help pass candy out =^-^=

This is our first holiday season as a shop on Etsy, so we're trying to: plan ahead, read through all the materials given by Etsy, and come up with great new items for cats to enjoy.  True, many stores already have their Christmas groove in place, but it's time for us to dive in and catch our own Christmas wave.

In other news... we signed up for Direct Checkout a few weeks ago so our customers would have more payment options if they shopped at our store.  A great thing that comes with Direct Checkout is the ability to shop our items with a gift card.  We haven't seen any gift card activity, but these are a great option to give as gifts in the upcoming season!

When reading up on how gift cards work, we found these links very helpful:

Time for us to go dream up some ideas for white Christmases, red nosed reindeer, and sugarplum fairies! 

Here's to enjoying each moment of the day, instead of feeling like we are chasing it!  See you the next time around.  Stay furry =^-^=

I love the bandana!

Thanks, Dianda! That turkey fabric is one of my favorites for sure.

That turkey bandanna is to die for! OMG I LOVE IT!

I have one suggestion...any chance you would create any Chanukah items for the Jewish kitties out there?

It is super hard to find items for Jewish kitties!! Just a thought!
Have a great day!

Thanks Caren! I'm happy with the way the turkey items came out :)

Regarding Chanukah items: YES! The last time I went holiday fabric shopping the pickings were slim (I think I was just too early so the store wasn't stocked yet). Now that Halloween and Thanksgiving items are made, my focus is shifting towards winter. and my sights are set on both Christmas AND Chanukah fabrics.

Also, last time I went shopping I snagged a great blue fabric with white snowflakes on it - not geared toward any one holiday, but will be great for a winter kitty for sure. Don't worry, I'm focusing on giving all sorts of kitties lots of options to play with! =^-^=

A dreidel toy would be super-cute! As an interfaith family, our kitties celebrate Chanu-mas ;) I love the new items!

Ariella - a dreidel is a great idea! That you for suggesting it. So much work ahead of me, but it'll be fun :)
