Other things that resemble squirrels:
Lol. Looks like something I’d manage. Might as well just call it an abstract cat toy….those arms are nowhere near even
Her other items are really cute and the price is really reasonaBle. Love the ball with legs, aa tarantula
The toy is at a profile angle, facing left. The arm is on the left side, the tail on the right side, the ears up top. You can barely see the other ear poking out behind the closer one.
That said, the tail is in the wrong place and nowhere near big enough. I doubt my cats would care, though.
Since a police booking picture was being used, a full face one should have been added, too. “When Cat Toys Go Bad” on Fox.
I think one of the appendages might be a “tail”.
It’s so much bushier than the other thing.
Oh good point. Strange to not include other angle shots. It doesn’t look raised enough to have another arm unde it
Well, it’s all conjecture at this point.
She could have called it just about anything, really.
In one of the other pictures of another item, she shows a picture of her kitty, snuggling something…. oh, it’s another toy, not something she made. What?
Oh wait, she used the same picture in other views of this toy. It’s the adorable kitty playing with some other toy.
This all reminds me of the old Bill Cosby sketch where he talks about what they all made in woodshop… how no matter what they tried to make, everything ended up being an ashtray.
“What is it?”
“Oh, well, you know… it’s an ashtray.”
“How come it’s got polish in it?”
“Oh, well, there are different kinds, you know.”
Here is what it becomes when it’s all grown up:

That literally made me lol… First time in a while ’round here…
Stop holding it in! It’s like Bertie Wooster said; “I didn’t laugh out loud but I distinctly felt one of my floating ribs part from its mooring under the strain.”
Thumbs up to you for the Wodehouse ref!
Bumptious: Lately it was more like “ew” and less like “wtf”. This post comes from a “different” author btw.
The way she has it worded makes it sound like the toy is for squirrels. I feel sorry for the wildlife in her yard.
It looks a lot like one of the eggplants that got hit by the frost here last week. My cats would play with either one I think.
I was thinking mutant yellow squash myself but yes definitely vegetable.
What’s the joke here? I see the a squirrel.
(Of course, I’m on acid right now)
You dropped some a on your squirrel.
I’m seeing a canary crossed with a dyed Easter chick, along with the faintest soupçon of like asparagus.
Argh, I keep commenting in the wrong spot. Rookie move, Plembot, rookie move.
Yeah, but at least you appear to be one of those “learning robots”.
But will you ever have the capability of true love?
I want to be a real girl, with real hair, and a real squirrel cozy for my beer.
That resembles a squirrel and I resemble good looking
Unless blood and guts come flying out of this after my cat tears it apart, he’s not going to be fooled. And more than likely pissed off.
Now that the squirrels are eating the persimmons off my tree, one of my cats is killing about a squirrel a week, which he then drags into my house and leaves the headless corpse next to his (non-empty) feed bowl. The circle of life!
awww.. what a special gift.
Maybe you can sell it on etsy?
add a little glitter, or clock parts….?
I read that as “cock parts” …
My 19 year old cat named Peeve, spits on your crocheted concoction. Then peed on it, cause that’s how he rolls.
When I get a cat, I’m totally stealing that name.
our elderly neighbors named him, we are allergic to cats, have 2 dogs and were told he may or may not have cancer, he was 12 then, when we took him on (they were moving to a nursing home), but it was really the name that said, “this cat’s for us.”
oh, and he does not have cancer = good, but has peed on almost every wall in his “lair” aka- the basement and insists on pooping next to the litter box. That kitty-cat really frosts my cookies sometimes.
Are you “Peeved ” at him yet?
Maybe if you’d changed his name to “Blissful”?
I called my dog “Bad Dog” just to save time.
At times most of my cats have thought their name was “Asshole.”
well, we mostly call him “Kitty- Kitty- You- Bastard- Why Do You Do That To Me?” The dogs, on the other hand think of him as their personal Pez dispenser.
This reminds me of a voodoo doll, similar to the one I made of Niki Minaj – which also had no affect on her pussy.
Scientists state that dogs are colorblind–So…maybe this IS what a squirrel looks like to a cat?
More research (with mega funds) is needed.
Looks more like a mutant gourd to me.
Avocado, clock radio, mayonnaise.
a)Things that resemble squirrels?
b)Things on the first page when you do a random Google Image search?
c)Things that I hate when they go off?
Er… Alex, I’ll take ‘things that go off’ for $200.
Things that go into not-the-best-guacamole-ever?
Things under my couch.
Check the ‘mayo’ with a blacklight. Just sayin’
Things that make the world of vegetarian trick-turning go ’round? Ole!
*Music starts playing* Aaaaand, it’s 5:30, time’s up! Get off and and get out or that’ll be $200 more.
precisely. and they have to get up that early b/c avocado is hard to get off. The mayo… that’s just used as a facial mask.
Things that MacGuyver needs to build a bomb/car/airplane?
Best simile ever
Oho, the rare argyle squirrel of Derbyshire, no doubt.
Known for its dry humor and delicate physical stature. Look for it in its natural habitat, university faculty cocktail parties.
I’ll admit it, not my best design, it’s difficult to get the tail right without sacrificing durability. Plus it is hard to get a good angle on it. Still I can cross ending up on regretsy off my bucket list
You’re cool for coming here.
We respect that.
I love the bluebird, and the virus.
I’m allergic to cats or I’d get some of both–cats and your cat toys.
Virus?! Where? Can’t see it but knitted microorganisms are cool in my book.
It’s right next to the bluebird, in her shop.
Thanks, now I see it. I think I was distracted by the tarantula.
There’s also a nice pear for sale.
Um, like I said.
*Stupid right hand trying to “help” out*
But where can I find a nice pear for sale?
Um, let me double check.
This is off-topic, but can anyone point me in the direction of a nice pear for sale?
I’m asking for a friend.
I like a nice pair!
I like the elephant because the listing says it “can withstand a lot of abuse”. I can so imagine myself yelling abuse at a kitty toy.
(Also, remove 1 ear to make hellephant.)
My cats don’t give a fuck what their toys look like. One of them plays with dirty socks, for Christ’s sake. I bought them fancy beds and where do they sleep? In cardboard boxes of course. Little ingrates.
I can make the hellephant happen. Stay tuned
Yay! Can it also be part of your new piñatas for cats line?
Just for you https://www.etsy.com/listing/113037592/hellephant-for-siliconesunflower
I would just change it to “squirrel piñata” and run with it. Olé!
I think a whole line of cat piñatas would be great.
Although I may just like saying cat piñata.
Now try; “Piñatas de Gatos” ¡Ay-ay-ay!
For full-face, put on on a sheet of heavy paper anchored by books at the ends (above and below), and cut a hole for the tail or part of the butt. Of course, since it is probably is no-face, you would have scared the heck out of everybody here. You know that faces don’t matter to cats especially if it’s stuffed full of catnip, but for humans that see faces in EVERYTHING . . .
You are pretty cool! What no cease and desist letter from your “lawyer”? Anyway, this is by far NOT the worst thing I have seen on Regretsy.
Well, I see Stay Puft the Marshmallow man, and a pineapple.
But I am on Cold Meds.
This is why you craft BEFORE the meth, not after.
What about during? Maybe that’s where I went wrong.
You made a beautiful vegetable. And my cats would so play with it. It is much nicer than the empty toilet paper rolls I give them.
Things get methy when I do crafths.
Pat me, theny.
Who you callin’ “theny”?
Did I make a methtake?
Saying “Pat McCann” would have maybe been one.
glitter pubes! or jazz hands pubes! or Spirit Fingers!
Everything Looks Like Squirrels Syndrome can happen if you suffer too many squirrel-related concussions.
Just doing my part to raise ELLSS awareness.
Crochet, the “Comment of the day” badge, please?
I missed the first comma in your post…and wondered if there was a pattern for Comment of the Day.
I just snorted so hard I think I broke something
I can’t decide what I’m more impressed about,
that the seller was able to knit that while drunk,
or if they were able to post it that coherently afterwards.
When I’m really drunk, I can barely crawl over to the toilet let alone knit a “squirrel”.
Whee! My submission made it in! I make cat toys myself (http://www.etsy.com/shop/EdgarsPlayhouse) so couldn’t believe when I came across this. If this is any indication of the quality of other toys out there, I should be an Etsy millionaire in … well, a really long time from now.
