Operation Happy Sock
Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Happy Sock creates and delivers catnip toys to homeless cats in animal shelters
and foster homes. Volunteers of all ages make simple toys, called
"Happy Socks," by stuffing catnip and polyester fiberfill in the toe
of a sock and tying a knot at the ankle. Simple, but a GREAT catnip toy!
Happy Sock catnip toys are more
than mere playthings, however. For stressed-out cats stuck in strange
surroundings, a whiff of catnip can be very therapeutic, and a big, fluffy
Happy Sock is the feline equivalent of a cuddly teddy bear.
