Woo-hoo! Look at this huge box of yarn scraps! Debbi McNeer of WV was kind enough to send them to me for catnip mice toys. Thanks, Debbi!
You've probably been wondering what the picture is at the top of my blog. It's a picture of the cat toys I've been knitting for Pet Refuge for over 6 years. My three cats---Boo, Solitaire, and White Kitty---were adopted from Pet Refuge. Two others passed on at the ripe old age of 16---Gray Kitty in April 2005 and Sam in April 2006. My toys are given to cats at the shelter and any extras are sold at adopt-a-pet events. Funds raised help pay for medical care and pet food for cats and dogs staying at the shelter while waiting for new homes. I'm always on the lookout for scrap yarn for this project or trying to recruit knitters to help me knit toys. LOL! I haven't had much luck with the latter! Here's another picture of the toys.
