The 5-Minute Mouse pattern from several years back has proven very popular among crocheting cat people. In honor of Bunny (the new kitten), I have designed a new toy based on that pattern. It has been amusing to see how many people took the name ‘5-Minute Mouse’ as a challenge or judgment on their crocheting speed. It was never meant literally and was only intended to relay ‘quick’ and ‘easy’. Since the controversy over that little number doesn’t seem like it will end, I did it again. And, no, I cannot make this fish in 5 minutes. It takes more like 10. But who really cares because what you get in the end is a great and easy cat toy!

Pattern Usage
Please do not use this pattern for personal gain. Make tons of them for your cats, your friends’ cats, your sister’s cats, the shelter. Just don’t make them to sell or sell the pattern or use the pictures. The exception to that would be shelter fund-raisers, in which case I would greatly appreciate you asking first. I will be happy to help you spread the word about the event. Thanks so much for your honesty and for loving the kitties!
