...And New Beddys...

They are soft, and the two match in color combos

I think both beds match in color combo

Wonder if I could learn to crochet?

Cool cat bed!
I picked up these two adorable cat beds from New Beginnings Animal Rescue (NBAR) in Royal Oak, Michigan last week.  Since Angel and Chuck seemed to enjoy their new scratcher/bed, I figured these soft, cozy hand-made ones would suit them as well.

However, as anyone who has ever been owned by a cat knows, cats do what they want to do, when they want to do it.  Both cats have given these new beds a thorough sniff test, and paws have walked on and around them.  No napping has yet taken place, at least that I know of.  Personally, these look like works of art, so having them out is a bonus.  Wish I could sleep in them!

About New Beginnings Animal Rescue (NBAR)...what a cool place!  I didn't even think to snap any photos, because I was blown away by the big, open rooms for free roaming, and the staff and volunteers were so welcoming and obviously in love with cats!  There was a couple in the lobby, thinking about adopting a cute tabby cat, while another woman stood waiting for her turn to pick out a new furry member of her family.  Ooh, I just LURV happy kitty stories!

Some wonderful volunteer crocheted these cat beds, and they only asked $10 each.  Such a deal, that is, when I get a cat to nap in one. They will someday: I just know it!

Those beds are great! Maybe put a blanket in the bottom or some catnip and the cats might take to them.

$10!! $10!?? You can barely get a fancy coffee for $10! They are worth way more! They do look like art. But you are right cats will do what they want!

OMC, that is a major bargain! And they are beautiful, too. We wish we had one or two that we wouldn't sleep in either. :-)

Wow, $10?!? She should open an Etsy shop. Those would sell like hotcakes!

Fur Everywhere said...

Those look like cozy beds. Whenever I get a new bed for the kitties, I'll put catnip in it so they'll go check it out. :)

Hehehehe - well, you know what we did with a handmade crocheted beddie!

Tamago said...

Wow, hand crocheted beddy! It looks very comfy, cozy, and pretty! I'd love to see Chuck and Angel use it. I'm sure they will love it once they "discover" it :-)

What a great deal on them. There is a lot of work in making them and muscle power. That is heavy duty yarn
