Crocheted Comfort for My Cat

This is a guest post from Carolyn, our Customer Service Supervisor:

I began knitting about 4 years ago, with help from my colleagues, then a year later I began crocheting. At this point, I have gotten the basics of both down, but I’ve decided that I am better at crochet. Whenever I want to learn something new, I see Rose, the head of our crochet class and she shows me a new stitch.

Awhile back, I had some left over yarn hanging around and just started a single crochet square using our Babysoft in Lavender, then decided to add Cupcake in Pistachio. This turned into a small square “blanket,” which now designates the bed of my kitty Sylvester (a.k.a. Maudy). I had laid the blanket over a pillow, and that is where he sleeps every night — and of course cat-naps during the day. It seems to bring him comfort.

As you see here in this photo, Maudy was in the animal hospital recently. When we visited him, I brought along his blanket -– he felt so peaceful to have his Mommy, Daddy, AND his blanket — he is resting here with the little IV in his paw.

He is back home safe and sound now, doing better from his illness, and back to his happy cat self.
