Looks gorgeous. Could you spray it with anti-cat spray or something?

We've tried those anti-cat sprays on other areas that we didn't want the cats to scratch (i.e. the couch) but they just ignored it, as cats do.

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

WOW WOW WOW! That is fantastic, I want one. Well done an awful lot of work there. Did it get really heavy near the end?

REALLY HEAVY! To the point that I was really stuggling to flip in over to knit/purl the next line in the end. I haven't weighed it yet, but to pick it up feels like it's at least as heavy as one of my cats (who weigh 14 lbs each).

WoW!
In only 3 months...? Wow!
It's fabulous... and one of a kind, I bet!
Totally blows me away...
I don't think I'd block it either... just lay it on the bed and let it rest naturally... that's what I'd do...
Wow... Totally beautiful!

It's truly an impressive, visually stunning blanket!

I've knit many a blanket, usually wool. I've never blocked a single one. I just use 'em straight away!

Cats are a tough customer. I've never met a cat that recognize boundaries! So on that note, I just wish you well! And keep a crochet hook handy!

I agree with everyone else about the blocking, not necessary. Wow that is one heck of a project and it looks terrific. You did a fabulous job.
