I’ve got one cat. His name is Milo. He lives inside and outside. This past winter was frigid like no other I can remember in a long, long time. Milo spent many winter days lollygagging by the fire. Sometimes for a kick he would pounce on the basket of yarn in hopes that it would put up a good fight. Mostly, his is lack of wintertime exercise took a toll on his girlish figure. I’m thinking next winter he’ll need to go out more and brave the temps. He’ll need some extra insulation if we have a winter like this past one. How about a sweater?
Over on the Craft Leftovers site, crafty recycler Kristin Roach created a perfectly toasty cat sweater. I’m about to start knitting this Cat Hoodie pattern in hopes that next winter Milo will throw his feline instincts to the wind, snuggle under the hood and explore the wonders of snow.
In all likelihood, Milo (right) would probably rather be killed by a gang of mice before he would let me put a sweater on him. What would his friends think? What would his brothers (two dogs) think? What do you think about cats in sweaters?
