I had to make a dog sweater for a swap.  Unfortunately, both of my dogs are much bigger than a chihuahua, so I had this brilliant idea to put it on the cat to see if I needed to make any last minute adjustments.  Here's the finished sweater, and one very unhappy kitteh.


I'm guessing purple isn't his color...






"Why, Mom, why?"

No kittehs were harmed in the photography of this dog sweater.  Big thanks to Apollo for not clawing my eyes out out while trying to squeeze him into a one-size too small sweater.

Pattern can be found HERE

Thanks for looking.

if there were a medal for bravery in crafting you would get one. Smiley that is one unhappy looking kitty, and yes, he likely is plotting against you.  watch for toys on the stairs or a friendly cat in the bathroom after a shower. Wink  that said.  love the sweater. i think it is a beautiful colour.

I would check out this handy guide to determine if your cat is truly plotting against you:

also, this one:

(the oatmeal is a funny site)

I'm imagining a very stiff legged, stiff necked walking about in the sweater.

Thanks!  He's been surprisingly complacent with me since the incident, but he might be bluffing.

after attempting to walk for a few steps, he just laid on the ground and gave me a dirty look.  lol

Ah, these are great!  I have the "Empathy or Murder?" panel as my desktop pic at work.

Very cute sweater and I admire Apollo immensely for putting up with modeling time.  My eyes would've been scratched out before I could even get it on one of mine, so Apollo must REALLY love you Wink

I'm loving these pics, and the coat is lovely too (the thumbnail photo confused me for a second, I thought 'that dog has a tail just like a cat!')  Roll Eyes
