Yay!!! It looks wonderful! And since it will get all "ruffed up" in an animal cage, it doesn't need a border.

Excellent!
I'll put you down as the next knitter on "Whiskers Wooby" - the one that Spikey is starting now.

Spikey...one more question. Would you mind measuring our first completed snuggle? I want to see if it's 24 x 24 like we wanted. If not, we can get a crocheter to add some stripes on the sides or something. Also, it would be nice for planning the rest of our snuggles.

Hi Sandy,
I'll definitely measure it when I get home from work. The picture does not show the true size, as a bit of the side was hanging off the edge of the table.

I'd be a bit concerned about adding a crocheted border, as it was already tough to keep our baby cat from biting at the edges while I was knitting. I'd worry that an edge might be that much more tempting and easier to unravel (making it a choking hazard), but I'm not a crocheter...

I just got Kitty Cuddles from Kellee0302! Thank you for all the wonderful goodies! The kitties are hiding from my brother right now, but we'll be sure to let them play with those toys tonight! Thank you! I will post a pic of the blankie as soon as my part is added before it goes out for the mail

Thanks for the input! I'm not a pet-owner, so I don't know about those things.

speaking from experience here. If a puppy eats a piece of cotton sting a small piece say and inch or so they will be fine. it is elastic that you REALLY need to watch out for.

BUT I do agree the border to a kitty is tempting. If a border is put on I would do 2-3 rows of single crochet and nothing else.
