Let's help the homeless kitties stay warm and cuddled this winter by making some cat blankets!
The blankets can be knit, crochet, sewn, woven or quilted, as long as they're cuddly and made with love. The benefit of the blankets goes beyond comfort for the animal. A blanket can calm a frightened or difficult to handle animal, it gives a more homey environment to the shelter for visitors so they may stay longer with the animals and are more likely to adopt, and the blanket maker receives the feeling of doing something good for someone who really needs it!
Just starting out knitting or crocheting? That's perfect! The kittens will NOT mind if there are mistakes!
You can make them for your local shelter, or we'll be collecting blankets to take to Katie's Place Shelter.
Here are some links to patterns on the SnugglesProject.org website (apart of Hugs for Homeless Animals, there are also links to places that accept "Snuggles" blankets)
You don't have to use these patterns! Any pattern, any blanket will do. It's also a GREAT way to bust that yarn stash! (the kittens won't mind if the colours match or not!)
Let's make some homeless kitties happy!
