Crocheted Comfort for My Cat

January 5th, 2009

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.

    I’m so glad to hear that your Maudy (Sylvester) is back safe and sound and doing great. He does look so peaceful sleeping with his blanket….I can almost see a big sigh as he feels safe and sound with something of his very own.

    I was so touched by your story. It just goes to show that our animals do have feelings just like us humans. My kitty and I are glad Maudy is back home and well.

    This photo is about the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen. I hope kitty is okay and recovering nicely. Thank you so much for sharing that story, kind of made me a little teary!
