Do you remember the string Whale cat toys I made for Ziggy and Kitty ?
These little beasties….
|From Kitty & Ziggy|
A friend of ours has a new kitten and I thought I’d make a little whale toy as a gift for the kitten. Ben saw my “gift Whale” and said, “that’s nicer than the ones our cats have! Make some for them too!”
…..So I did….
Here is the Pretty pink whale for our friend’s cat..
Which thankfully I hid from Ziggy and Kitty….
…And here are the two I made for Ziggy and Kitty, 2 days after I gave them to them…
Mauled, chewed, kicked, bitten and generally savaged to death! Now I remember why I made the last ones out of tough old string!
Here’s the mauled and unmollested whales together so you can see the havoc wrought by fang and claw.. …
I’m now in counselling and trying hard to take it as a compliment…
So would you call that a knitting success? Kitty and Ziggy obviously loved them!
