That was a wonderful gesture of sympathy and kindness. You are a good neighbor and friend.

I've made several felted pets for people after their animals have passed away- they've all loved them, and I would love if someone did something like that for me as well.

I think that this is a wonderful gesture! I know I am late on the conversation here, but as an animal lover and cat owner I would love something like this. My best friend lost one of her cats a few weeks ago, he was 16 and would be estactic and tearful at the same time for someting like this. I am glad that she loved it. You did a great job and looks so lifelike.

Thank You all for the comments Smiley It`s good to hear, wha You think and also, that You guys like my felted pup Smiley

- I`m going to make one now for  my sister, who lost her FIRS puppy a couple of years ago, when a careless driver flew down a street and hit her puppy w/o even slowing down and she saw it all a few meters away, unable to do anything, since the pup ignored her calls Sad

I love making these animals, because they have a 'purpouse' and soul Smiley

(and feltpets, Your pets are amazing!)

I'm late in this thread too. But I would of love to have one these felted animal look a like, of my dogs. I have had several dogs passed in the last several years. It's so touching for you to had done that. I would of cried too, but would of love a little wool felted animal to remember my pets. I love all animals so much, & the animals give us their love unconditionally!
Petskin you are amazing!! Please show pics of your new felted pet when you get done. I can't believe drivers, we had a dog hit too wasn't good.
I'm so glad your doing this, your sister will love this especially since you made it for her!!   Bless You!!!

Another agreement here - when I eventually lose one of my beloved furbabies, a little memento like this would be beautiful.

That's a really lovely piece of work, too.  It looks fantastic.

It would be a great comfort to her, I'm sure!! It's so hard to loose furry friends and even though you keep them in your heart, it really is nice to have something as a reminder.

I've done memorial portraits of pets and they are treasured and a great comfort!!
