Crochet for CatsBy A Guest Writer – 28 Comments
A Guest Post by Lolo.
I went to the pet store to buy some food for my cat Mickey. Like always, I go over to the cat adoption area to say “hello” to the cats. I was so surprised to see that the cats had crocheted blankets in their cages. Well, now that I think of it, I don’t think I should have been surprised to see the crocheted blankets. I know that people often crochet blankets and items for animals, especially for those in shelters and non-profit rescue organizations, which is where the pet store got their cats from.
So instead of saying I was surprised, I should say that I was more unexpectedly happy to see the cats and their crocheted blankets. I never though that seeing simple crocheted blankets at the store would put a smile on my face! I think it’s the crocheter in me that wants to see crochet everywhere.
Now that I’ve had a fun trip to the pet store and saw crocheted blankets for cats, I’m thinking of crocheting one for my darling Mickey. Maybe I’ll even make some of Rachel’s crocheted cat toys too!
Have you seen crochet for cats recently? Do you crochet for your cats? If you don’t have a cat, what about for your dog or other pet?
