Hello friendly craftsters. I have a few questions. We just moved into a new house with a big fenced in backyard. My dog has been living with my parents since I moved out about 3 years ago. I have been living in apartments and with roomates where I couldn't have my dog. She is a toy poodle. So now my boyfriend and I are in our own house and my dog Willow is coming to live with us. I am hoping to make the transition as easy and non-scary as possible for her. I want to craft her some dog warming presents to help her adjust to her new home. She already had a bed and tons of toys. Any ideas on what I could make her?

Also, with our new home came a stray cat who hangs out in the backyard. We have named her Pursenny in honor of our two cats that we had to give away when we found out I was allergic. Since I am allergic we obviously cannot take the cat into our house, but we feel really bad for her (she is deathly thin and freaks out for attention). We have been feeding her and giving her water in the back yard. I feel so bad for her, not having a home or any toys to play with. We were thinking of building her a little shelter for if it rains or snows. Any ideas about things we could do to make her homeless kitty life a little brighter??

For the cat, how about a simplified version of this house?

A light bulb (installed safely) should be enough to heat the house, but there are pet heating pads sold on Ebay.
