Now it’s up to me to continue his training and teach him to be the ultimate adventure cat.

I’m a firm believer of pushing our boundaries and challenging our friends and family to do the same. No matter the size of the challenge the most important thing is that, we as humans learn new things all the time.
It feels as though it’s been ages since our last canoe trip. Since we’ve met, Adam and I have made it a tradition to do at least one paddling trip a year.

So ultimately, the goal is to train my new baby kitten to be as epic and outdoorsy as we are. Using lots of research and trial by error I’m taking (hopefully) the right steps to preparing him for the outdoors.
Dragon is my first and only kitty. My goal is to teach him that courage and curiosity is essential to growth and braving the outdoors.
I also believe in making a lot of my own things so check in every once and a while for ideas on how to make cat toys! And feel free to let me know what you think and what your kitty thinks!
The Floss Shaker
1. Find an empty floss container. Shoutout to GUM SunStar for their floss today! (Removed the spool from inside.)
2. Open the floss container and fill it with a few grains of rice. (Not too many or else it won’t rattler.)
4. Insert the knotted end of the yarn into the floss container. Snap it shut and easy peezy! A new toy!
Let me know how it goes! Feel free to post your cat toy photos on my Facebook page @MelbasToast.com
