    I guess August wants this!

    I have a Sixteen year old Cat and her name is August. She has Cancer in her neck glands. She eats a lot and still plays. I had all these cotton and batting scraps I kept and wanted to get them out of the garage so I made this bed for ANY DOG that might want it. I threw it on the living room floor and said to my HB, " maybe your sister wants it for her dog? Next thing I saw was this!!!Name:  IMG_2709.jpg

    August is just adorable and looks like she has adopted the pillow as her own.

    Of course she loves it -- it has your scent all over it and it brings her comfort! Two of my cats are multi-colored like she is.

    We just came home from a trip and the cat stays in our camping trailer as we drive along the highway. He finds a good spot but we know he is still stressed. When we came home Wednesday, he went to the dog's big bed and stayed there for almost 3 days sleeping day and night. The dog roamed around and around the bed, but Shadow never lifted his head. Looks almost like the way your August was sleeping.

    Knowing cats like I do, now that you have posted their picture, they will never lie in it again. They are very cute. Judging by the look on her face, August may not be too thrilled with having to share with sister.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    What a pretty tortie! I have one too named Finley. She and her sissy are so sweet on their new pillow. I need to make one for my kitties.

    I'm sorry your kitty is sick. I'm sure she get a lot of comfort cuddling on 'her' pillow with her sister.

    What kind of cat is august ? I had one that was almost a miniature. She looked just like her. She was a sweety just like your little girl.

    Silly you. You thought you sewed a dog pillow when in reality it was a cat magnet.
