Kitty Sachets

During their stay at The Anti-Cruelty Society, cats are provided with a variety of enrichment items to make their time with us more pleasant. Kitty sachets, being small and filled with catnip, make a great toy for a cat currently living in a kennel on-site. These easy to make sachets will bring some of the comforts of home to a cat in our care.
