Use any medium worsted weight yarn and a size G hook. I would suggest sturdier yarn as opposed to softer, satiny yarn, since your cat will be less likely to tear it.
Row 1: Ch 7, turn, sc in second ch from hook and in each across. Turn, ch 1.
Row 2: Sc in each sc across. Turn, ch 1.
Row 3- 15: Repeat Row 2.
Sew up the sides, leaving one side open. Stuff with catnip (I used cat mint, but its basically the same thing) and sew up the remaining side.
For ears (repeat on both ends of "head"): Sc 3, ch 1, turn, sc 1, sl st in one. Break off and weave in ends. Repeat on other side.
For whiskers: In the center, towards the top, pull two 3" strands of contrasting yarn through one of your sc, and tie securely in a knot. Trim to taste.
