gonefishing finished CRAFT Pattern: Valerian Fish Toy for Cats, from Craft Leftovers
This week on the CRAFT Pattern Podcast, we have an interesting toy for your kitty. Author Kristin Roach made this discovery recently after a visit to her local health food store:

“I picked up a few ounces of Valerian to use in making a healing tincture. As soon as I got home with this herb, my cats started going nuts – pawing at my purse, meowing weirdly. It was like we had catnip on hand. Turns out, Valerian contains a chemical called valerinone, which is very similar to the active compound in catnip. For me, Valerian is all about helping with falling asleep and balancing out my hormones. For the kitties, it’s pure cat bliss.”
