so this is my first post on here and i just felt like showing off my spoiled kitties in the sweaters i made them. let  me know what you think! hope you enjoy! Grin

Sirius (black male cat) loves his sweater although its a little big on him. i had never done this pattern before.  i'm sure i can fix it though


I made my little girl kitten, Captain Teague, a flower and ruffle for hers.   She needless to say hates her sweater.

LOL!!  That's so cute!  They didn't freak out about having sweaters on?  My cat would cry endlessly & hate me for weeks!

hahaha... I've got to try to make one of these for my cat.  So far the only "clothing" i've been able to get on him is a superman cape.

They're so cute! I've only tried putting a hat (well, Frankenstein Halloween costume hat) on my cat and she acted like I was trying to do her in. I don't think I'd ever get a sweater on her! But kudos to you for being able to do so!  Cheesy

Wow, if I tried to do that to my cat, she would probably kill me. Might be able to pull it off on our newly adopted outdoor cat, though. Well, it's more like he adopted us, but anyway...

Good job! The flower is a nice touch!

ha ha... It's so weird how some pets love and some pets hate the things we put on them.  My little dog LOVES sweaters.  It makes her warm and she curls up and falls asleep.  The other one, however, will kill anyone that tries to come near her with one of those things.  She usually eats it off of her if you leave it on. Your girl cat sweater is adorable!  Did you use a pattern? (hope someone didn't already ask that)

Captain Teague (in pink) tries to tear it off every chance she gets!  while Sirius just accepts his fate and falls asleep. but neither liked it at first.

i found a basic dog sweater pattern and just modified it to fit my cats.  it was just alot of eyeballing and guessing since i didnt have them with me for models.  it was still fairly simple and only took a few hours to do.

Aww, too cute! I wish I could knit better (faster  Smiley ) when I see these. I have two indoor cats and one hates going outside but the other loves it, it's just too cold and too much snow for him right now. Maybe he would like it better with a sweater!
He probably wouldn't let me put it on him though...  Grin

What utter cuteness. Your kitties may not be overjoyed with their new sweaters, but at least they look flipping adorable!
Seriously, wonderful job!

wow... these are great!  I plan on getting a sphynx kitty, and my evil plan is to make it sweaters, especially with fun fur.  My current kitties though would most likely attempt to scratch me to death if I came near them with a sweater.

Love the sweaters and the kitties are adorable, too!  I keep telling my husband that I am going to put mine in sweaters and he just doesn't seem to understand the appeal. Smiley

Oh, those are so cute!  I would love to make a sweater for my cat but anytime I put clothes on her she just falls on her side and acts like she's paralyzed. Tongue

here is the link to where i found the pattern.  fairly simple you just have to make your own adjustments to the size.

Fabulous! Love the look of kitties in clothes!!  What wonderful entertainment: cat couture! 

My (very, very, very furry and very, very, very large) Maine Coon cats would knock me on my ass if I ever tried a sweater on them, but you are inspiring me to finish up hankie bonnet they can wear (er, that I am making for a friend's soon-to-be born).  Nothing is cuter than cats in clothes. Awesome work!
