This is LadyBug. She also lives with my in laws. Another rescue from the shelter. She is missing a leg, but makes up for it in super happy-go-lucky sweetness. She is the SWEETEST cat I have ever met, aside from their last diabetic cat with a missing leg - Sheba - I loved that cat too (weird huh - that they ended up with another one??).
This cat is just SO HAPPY to see you. She immediately purrs and when you stop petting her, she reaches out and taps on your leg - so gently and you just want to pet her FOREVER. She is such a love bug ... I almost took her home this time ...

This is a cute one - and quick ... I thought it would take 2 days to knit and finish, but just one (maybe 4-5 hours). No sewing up - kitchener stitch instead. I think the hardest parts were cutting circles from felt that actually looked like circles and embroidering that beak to look like a beak.
He stands at 4.5" tall.
Very nice pattern - I would knit this one again ... and again ...
This is Frosty. He lives with my in laws. They found him during a blizzard (hence the name). They found him in a snowbank and he had a broken leg. They rescued him and nursed him back to health.
They checked around to see if he belonged to anyone and nobody claimed him ... so here he is several years later, still with them. He is just like my Nikoh ... its scary how much they are alike. He was very skid-dish when they first found him. Now that he's been loved and cared for many years later, he's still a little quirky, but super sweet and friendly!
