Prototype Thief

I forgot I was going to post pictures of Star with the prototypes of the ornament balls for the Winnie's Wish Fundraiser! I must have made about six different ones, and they kept disappearing! I stuffed them, but never even sewed the hole up because I was just seeing if they were round.
 
Let me tell you, making a round ball is not as easy as it sounds! I tried making patterns off of the kitties toys, didn't work. I looked some up on line, and got football shapes instead of round.. I finally found one that I could alter a little and get a pretty round ball! And that one disappeared too..
 
It was Star. She stole every one of them and batted them around the house. Every time I saw one, I'd snatch it up and sew it shut so she didn't lose stuffing all over the house! I'm pretty sure they're all sewn now.. I hope.. At the moment, I only know where three of them are. And that's because Star batted them through the livingroom today!
 
I made them out of denim because I had some worn out jeans that I was going to toss out and then thought what the heck, they can be prototypes! There is no nip in these balls, but Star loves them just the same. She scoops them up with her claws and throws them around! She's gotten pretty good at it, but it's soooo hard to catch her with the camera! Digital is so slow!
 
Anyway, here's the pictures I got!
 

 
This is my ball and I am not going to share it. Got that, barbarian? M. I. N. E. Mine.
 
 

Getting ready to attack it.. the secret is to not let it catch you looking at it..
 
 

Then snatch it! Bwhahahaha!
(see my tooth? I was serious!)
 
 

I dived under the Royal Footstool after it!
Mom missed that with the flashy box, hee hee!
 
 

Alright, something is happening out the door, playing is on hold now.
See two balls in this picture? Both MINE!

Those balls look pretty round to us! Perfect for batting around. Lucky Star!

Marg said...

Oh Star, those look like great toys. Two Two loves to play with balls the same way. They look like great ornaments but wouldn't be on a tree for very long here. Take care.

Whoa! someone never heard the word Share! If I lived with you, you'd never have to worry about where your balls are. Wait, that didn't sound right. MOL

Random Felines said...

we like the size of that toy....big enough to whack around and grab. :) we lose toys around here all the time.

Brian said...

Well the prototype sure was a success!

mythreemoggies said...

Wow you must be exhausted :-)

Gattina said...

It's certainly difficult to be creative with a darling cat who steals your material and plays with it,lol !

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

Star is a heckuva product tester.

Nice job on those!

Laila and Minchie said...

Too fast for the flashy box! WooHoo! Great balls!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

You know what??? Those are my favrit kind of mice and balls too! Lightweight and made of fabric so I can plays wif them MYSELF and toss them around really far and not have to wait for my BORING, LAME Human to toss them for me. I can be self-sufficient!!!

Sweet Purrfections said...

We bet Brulee would enjoy those because she loves to carry around Mom Paula's socks. Have you made any toys out of old socks?

Pee ess - we love your header!
