Squid Cat Toy Crochet Pattern

Squid Cat Toy Crochet Pattern

I love to play with my cat Maze!  Like most cats, she is very finicky when it comes to things she likes to play with.  So I am always thinking of new ideas that entertain her as much as me. 

This Squid Cat Toy Crochet Pattern is the cutest thing I designed recently and my Maze LOVES it!  I hope you get many enjoyable hours playing with your pets with this make!
