DIY Welcome Home cat gift basket by filling litter box with LitterMaid Premium Walnut litter, cat food, cat toys.

I have a confession to make. I’m not a cat person. But when my sister announced she was the proud new owner of a cat and introduced us to her little fur ball, oh mon dieu, I was smitten.

Taken herself by this furry feline, my sister wasn’t exactly prepared for her new four-pawed roommate. She was missing all sorts of important kitty cat things, like you know, a litter box.

So, for anyone bringing home a pet friend, help ease the transition with a “welcome home” gift basket of practical four-pawed items like LitterMaid® Premium Walnut, cans of food, toys …and an super easy DIY cat bow tie because one is never too young (or furry) for high style!

Walk the aisles of pet supplies and the items are endless for putting together a “welcome home” gift basket for a furry feline. And with a few scraps of fabric, you can add a DIY cat bow tie for a fun gift for any new pet owner.

What to put in a “Welcome Home” cat gift basket:
– Litter box
 LitterMaid® Premium Walnut
– Cat nip
– No scratch spray
– Cans of food and treats
– Assorted toys, like balls and shoelaces

DIY Cat Bow Tie supplies:
– Fabric (I used felt scraps)
– Sewing thread + needle
– Two (2) plastic rings (size depends on pet’s collar)

How to make a pet bow tie using fabric scraps and easy sewing skills.

I made this kitty cat bow tie in about 10 minutes. Super simple!

Start by cutting out a long strip of fabric. Mine was approx. 9″ long x 2″ wide. Make yours longer (or shorter) depending on size of pet.

  1. Fold the ends on the fabric into the middle of the strip. Overlap them slightly.
  2. Cut a second piece of fabric. Wrap it around the middle of the fabric to form a bow shape.
  3. Hold the pieces in place with a couple pins. Quickly sew together.
  4. Attach two plastic rings to the backside of bow. Slip pet’s collar through the rings.
