So, I was looking around for a cute little stuffed cat pattern as my daughter really wants me to knit her one for Christmas. I went to Knitting Pattern Central and started clicking on the cat related links....when I clicked on this one:

:shock:

Man, does that thing look rabid or what?! That would give ME nightmares! :teehee:

Very rabid indeed....not something I'd get for any of my nieces or nephews.

Though....if it was white and maybe with more pointy teeth and longer ears, it could be the Rabbit With Pointy Teeth from Monty Python.

Maybe a bit rabid, but kids love that stuff. :teehee:

Here's a few cute free ones that aren't scary.

I just saw this dog.. couldn't he be turned into a cat with cat ears? He's pretty cute with the patches and all.

These were all found on Rav so you can look at them there, too. :thumbsup:

I always thought that was freaky too! Like a vampire kitty or something. Too scary for me!!!

From the front it doesn't look so bad to me, but from the side . . . :shock:

That first photo looks pretty freaky! I thought I was looking at long, snaggly teeth -- and then they turned out to be whiskers.

Pretty funny!

That happened to me, too.



But, it's not scary. I think is an awesome pattern.

I found this on Ravelry, and I just thought the expression on the cat's face was hilarious http://www.christinelandry.com/?p=5
These are more along the lines of what you were looking for!

:roflhard: That killer bunny is awesome!!! That may possibly be one of the most awesome knitted things I've seen...lol...See, I think what makes that cat I posted so creepy is the fact it's NOT supposed to be creepy!
