A Cat and a Knitting Box

A few years ago, I made a fabric box, quilted and embroidered, for my daughter who is an avid knitter, cat lover and Chicago Cubs fan.  Her old cat, Snickers, has grown more eccentric as she ages (as we all have) and now insists on positioning herself on the box.


The box has suffered a bit …

…but Snickers shows absolutely no shame.

  1. Typical kitty, Lillian. We bought ours little insulated fuzzy huts to sleep in when it gets really cold here. NOPE! They sleep on the top of them and crush them every time. Silly kitties. Guess they just like cushie tushies. Gotta ❤ them.

  2. What a wonderful since of humor you have. Snickers on the other hand looks like a “matter of fact” cat – as most are! Love your box and gives me ideas for coffee table storage.

  3. Snickers owns that box, she only lets you think it is yours. So nice of you to make it for Snickers…Gotta love her.

  4. No matter how many cozy places we provide for our cats, they will choose their own–not usually where we would prefer them to be. Cats rule!
