I blocked it on something roughly 16 inches in diameter as I had measured the cat when he was sleeping and tightly curled he was 15.5 inches. He is on the chubby side as he is 13 and refuses to go outside and get any exercise. He's been on diet cat food for years, but he had plateaued on the diet front. He bites if you don't feed him when he decides he wants fed. We've divided his daily rations into three portions and he gets them at certain intervals.... I could probably cut him down further but I already have scars!

A jumper is what we call sweaters/pullovers. The term sweater isn't used over here, and it has implications of sweat for me!

my guy is 15 and weighs 14lbs,the vet wants him to lose weight but that's not gonna happen.His activity consists of moving from chair to chair for a new nap.I hadn't thought about making him a felted bed....but I bet it would be warm....Sammy has arthritis and I'm always on the lookout for nice warm beds for his sore bones.
I read the post about the jumper in the wash and never even thought about it,I have been gone from Scotland over 40 years but I guess you never forget your first "language"

I guess they are in denial that they're actually gone...you think? My cat does that too.

ok, if I stick it on his favourite chair (which is also my favourite chair) he will actually use it, otherwise he uses it as a pillow.

He's gorgeous. Uh I mean handsome. Yeah that's it. You did a great job on his bed. I like your colors. Some call them cat pies.

I have a top loader & use a front at one of my jobs. I see the advantages of both. Hopefully, DH will keep my Kenmore going for a long time.

I used this pattern but with modifications by silkernie on Ravelry except I threw in a few extra rows between decreases as I had so much yarn left over (Anchor wash and Filz-it)
