Yes, it's true. I fear I'm teetering dangerously close to the edge of "Crazy Cat Lady" status...In my twenty three years of living I've owned a total of 3 cats, befriended far too many to count, surrendered my favourite arm chair to a cat, rescued an abandoned newborn kitten I found in my mom's garden, let me cat ride on my lap in the car and now I've gone and knit a blanket for my cat's bed (well, one of her beds!).
Previously I had lined her cardboard box bed with old towels but this blanket is so much better. I swapped out her old box for a cool wooden crate which is bigger so she has more room to roll around. She was hesitant to try the new bed because everything was new to her. I had to physically place her in the bed a few times before she got used to it.
Venelope in her old bed with her stuffed dog Scruffy (this was taken in September and she is a lot bigger now!).
She is learning to like the new bed and blanket.
I'm clearly one of those people who treats their pet like part of the family, but I don't see anything wrong with that. And I was kidding about the crazy cat lady stuff at the start of this post, although I did do all those things.
I love all my cats and will forever be a cat lover !
