Thanksgiving is ONE WEEK AWAY, and I’m super happy about it because it’s my favorite holiday!

Who’s with me?!

I have a lot to be thankful for this year, but at the top of that list is my crazy kitty Graham that I’m absolutely  obsessed with. Graham’s been my BFF for 6 or 7 years now (I’ve lost track), and he’s the coolest cat I’ve ever known.

He’s actually behaved really good lately because he did go through a phase when he was an absolute terror!

I think I shared the story on the blog a long time ago, but a few years back I bought myself a brand new Macbook and 3 days later, Graham spilled water all over it and ruined it. That was the most furious I’ve ever been with him, but it was pretty hard to stay mad at him with a face like this.

Can you blame me?

I love that dude , so I thought I’d  treat him to a happy Thanksgiving season.

I made a quick trip to Walmart and picked up some of his favorite treats! But then I also decided to make a few DIY catnip toys – something I’ve been wanting to attempt forever! Turns out, it’s really easy!

STEP #1: Grab Some Fun Fabric

STEP #2: Cut out two 4″ x 4″ Squares

Step #3: Sew The Two Squares Together Using a 1/4″ Seam On Three Sides

Word of advice here – use a sewing machine if you have one. Joe and I hand-stitched these and it took FOREVER!

Step #4: Flip The Fabric Inside Out To Create A Pouch

How cute are they?!

Sorry, I’m  a tad bit proud of ourselves because we’re never this crafty!

So this holiday season, think about treating your pet to something special!

After all,  a happy pet means a happy home!

Just head over to your local Walmart and grab your fur baby’s favorite Temptations®  treats!

Graham is a big fan of Temptations® Classics Tantalizing Turkey Flavor and Temptations® Snacky Mouse!
