Let your worries dissolve away as you sleep soundly and purr like a kitten with our traditional Guatemalan "worry doll," made in the image of a cat. A lovely way to help ease someone's mind in trouble.
According to the Mayan people of Guatemala, cats are thought to protect the souls of people on their journey to the underworld. They also have the tradition to share their worries with the worry people and place them under their pillows at bedtime. During the night the worry people will whisk all your cares away, and you will wake up carefree Â all your worries gone!

THESE ARE MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITES. I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW MANY I HAVE PURCHASED. I SEND THEM TO EVERYONE GOING THROUGH TROUBLES. I PRINTED OUT THE STORY OF THE WORRY DOLL AND CHANGED IT TO WORRY CAT AND INCLUDE IT WITH THE CAT. I WISH THEY WERE LESS EXPENSIVE BECAUSE I ORDER SO MANY. BUT I JUST LOVE THEM AND ALWAYS HAVE THEM ON HAND.

These are absolutely adorable. It certainly could take someone's mind of their troubles, if only for a short time.
