    what I have been making this week

    I have been working on some cage covers for 'HOPE for Brevard' this past week. They are in Brevard county (my home town) who brings fostered cats in to the pet supermarkets and adopts them out.

    I made them a table cloth, 3 cage covers and 116 little catnip sashets so far. I forgot to take pics tho.

    I adopted our little Oreo from them a few months ago.

    Thanks. No pattern, I just took measurements from one cover already made, and I guessed at the size for the bags. They ended up being 3 X 4.

    Great idea, I bet the cats love them!

    The cat in my avatar was one of my foster kittens. After fostering many, many liters, we picked the best to keep. Oreo looks like a sweetheart.

    Wonderful to help out a great program and find homes for kitties. Oreo looks full of mischief! :-)

    Thanks everyone. All 4 of my cats were adopted. My sister adopted 5, her daughter has 2 and my son found one at about 4 weeks old, and adopted 2 others. And get this.... we were raised with dogs!

    Oreo is adorable and he looks like he knows he has a good home. You are very thoughtful to help out homeless kitties. I have 4 but always want to adopt more, but you have to draw the line somewhere.
