This was really fun and my kitten got in it before I was done! AlleyCatsAndAngels got right back to me when I needed a bit of help -- mainly just confirming I understood the pattern instructions correctly.

Perfect addition to my other cat lover themed car decorations and for a good cause.

I really enjoyed making this! It took almost 4 skeins of regular Impeccable acrylic yarn and I used a 10" macramé ring for the opening (though it was holding its shape really well without it -- I just like the look of the ring). I might try a few more after the blisters on my hands have a break :)

These are the perfect size for smaller kittens or for a cat to carry around. I bought two without strings and two with strings as I wasn't entirely sure which ones my babies would prefer, but Chevy seems to love both - I found nearly all of them in the living room floor this morning where he pulled them out of the cathouse/tree to play. A couple of the larger kickers with strings also accidentally got shipped with my order and the shop was kind enough to allow me to keep the toys on them, which I thought was exceedingly kind of them. Chevy loves these too, they're just right for him to roll around with, which is the photo I've included since I couldnt get a good one of him playing with the minis. Scamper still seems to like the pillows the best.

Beautiful and adorable! I bought two for family memebers, and they're a little bigger than I thought they would be, but that's perfect because they'll be easily visible on the back of my mother's and my aunt's trucks. My mother already loves hers; I have yet to give one to my aunt, but I have no doubt she'll adore it as well, particularly where she loves cats, though unfortunately she's unable to keep the furry bundles of love herself due to allergies. Once I have my own vehicle I'll probably be getting one for myself as well!
