There's a cat pattern in The World Of Knitted Toys (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0715312243/ref=pd_sxp_f/103-7656710-4901409?v=glance&s=books), but it's considered a "challenging" pattern.

There's a cat pattern in a little book by Bernat (which also features a bunny, a dog, and the pig I'm working on) but I think it would be pretty challenging for a beginning knitter. I'll keep an eye out, though.

I found this one (http://www.alphalink.com.au/~woodsy/Adam's%20Kitten.htm). It's not free, but it's only $2.50 and he'll send it to you via email.

And here's one (http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/toys/catty.htm) that is less shaped and might be eaiser for a beginner.

I ran across this book (http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1561582948/ref=sib_rdr_zmin/102-1833584-0002551?p=S007&j=1#reader-page) somewhere, and there is a cute stuffed cat pillow @ the bottom of the table of contents. I think it's adorable, but I'm not sure it's what you're looking for.

Do you crochet? Coats & Clark have a free crocheted kitten pattern on a tear-off sheet. It might also be on their website.

Oh come on! It's not that bad. Or perhaps it's because I'm used to looking at the kitty my son has had since he was a year old. Now *that's* scary. I'll have to post a picture sometime.

Jouf posted this in another thread, and i think some of them might make good kitty balls.
I know someone was talking about these, but they're not felted like most of us have been doing:

Here are some that aren't felted:

WOW< Jouf, who knew you're post would be so popular!

I'm going to try these for my two sister-in-laws who are each going to give me their cat once I move.... they'll be a sort of replacement :)

Looks simple enough and I think the size will depend a lot on what material you use. I don't know how well they will hold up when actually used as a cat toy; I mean you could easily stuff them with catnip (is that the word?) but since you're sewing the parts together, they might not withstand the stress of being chewed, puled and clawed at.

but if it's just a toy for a child or something that you're looking for, this might be something for you :)

But true.

Here's a link to the Fortune Cat by JustJussi - I liked this as it reminded me of my childhood.

Did anyone notice that the original post and replies were made in 2005? She may have found what she's looking for now 2yrs later.
