Truffles' Toy Review: Edgar's Attic

Hey everybody, Truffles at the keyboard! Are you an Etsy shopper? Mommy does a lot of browsing but has so far resisted the temptation. She says it's getting harder and harder though because there is so much cool kitty stuff on there.

Last month Edgar's Attic handmade catnip toys ran a contest on Facebook to celebrate 100 page likes. The prize was an Edgar's Attic tote bag for the humans and FIVE toys for the kitties...and I WON!!!

Debra Hussey is the owner of Edgar's Attic, and Edgar is the kitty that inspired the shop. He was Debra's faithful companion for 17 years before he went to the Bridge. Debra says of her Etsy Shop, "It grew out of a desire to fill the space where he used to be." To us, that makes these whimsical, catnip-filled felt cat toys even more special because they are handmade with love.

I was so excited when my package arrived. Everything looked so adorable individually wrapped in paw print tissue paper! We adore the tote bag's design with the two kitties and a cup of coffee, and it's perfect for Mommy because she is a tote bag fanatic!


These are the toys we picked out: a mouse, sock monkey girl, cupcake, paw, and maple leaf. (Mommy picked out the maple leaf because it's such a symbol of Vermont, not knowing that Debra is in Canada and of course the maple leaf is on their National Flag.)


I immediately jumped into the toy pile. I love grabbing the mouse by his corded tail and kicking the stuffing out of him! (Teehee!!!)


Many action shots had to be deleted because they were so blurry!


These toys are even pawsome to cuddle up with at naptime!


Thank you, Edgar's Attic! I just love my new toys!

That bag is purr-fect for your mommy! I'm so happy that you liked all of your cute toys. A mouse looks like it makes a great pillow! I have avoided Etsy buying and I agree that it is very difficult!
