Worn Out Wednesday

Angel, ready for a snooze
And...

You can see why I wore these socks to death!  So cute!

Years ago, a friend gifted me with these fabulous cat socks.

I've worn them countless times, and they now have holes in the soles.

I may be an excellent sock darner (I really am!), however these are past it, I'm afraid.

Think I'll cut off the ankle part, and create some sort of cat toy from them.

Farewell, cat socks; you've served me well!

Hole at the toe, and both socks have them

You could stitch a pair of trainer socks into the inside of them to save them a little!

Great idea! Almost all of my mom's socks are kitty socks.

Brian said...

Yes, someone needs a snoozy and someone needs new socks!

Rosa Silva said...

I also had a pair of cat socks that I wore until they had holes - they were my favorite and unfortunately I never though of making something with them. Your idea of making a cat toy is great!

Marg said...

Oh, those will make a great cat toy. Good use for worn out socks. Have a great day.

That kitty has something to say. Cute.

I love those socks. Can you replace them? I'm sure you can.

Have a purrfect Wordless Wednesday. ♥

I see those socks are fully enjoyed by you :-) It's a great idea to make cat toy from them!

Terri said...

So many cute cat socks available...buy some more! Making cat toys out of these is a wonderful idea.

Rene said...

What a bummer. I like the idea of making a cat toy from them, maybe a kicker toy?

Angel looks like you have stated your opinion and are firm on your beliefs.
I really hate it when a favorite pair of socks gets to this stage.
I cannot darn socks worth two cents but you are right these are darn past darning. Hugs Cecilia

How wonderful that you got so much wear out of them. Sock kitty toys....there's a great recycle. I think I would tie them in a knot and marinate them in cat nip for a day. Then, it would be all up to the cats here to bat , chase and carry them around!
It is a big day today. We are going to the shelter to pick up Zachs kitten soon. Hope he's ok for the car ride. I feel like Zach and this guy are a great match. Kittens are such fun and he needs good fun for all the work he's doing right now teaching1

Nothing like a good pair of cat socks! Or 10 pairs....

Cute socks! We like the idea of you repurposing them in some way.

Those socks look very well loved!

when it's a treasured article and you love it...it is so hard to have to bid it goodbye. I hope you are able to salvage some.

A cat toy would bring those socks an amazing second life!

They are cute and so is Angel. You could cute the foot part off and make a cup cozy. I did that with some Grinch socks I had.

The Whiskeratti said...

They were well loved, we can see.

It's so hard to part with such cute cat things. But at least you can recycle them as a toy.

The Swiss Cats said...

Your beloved socks will have a new life as a cat toy, that's great ! Purrs

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

That's a great idea! We can't wait to see the toy.

Caren Gittleman said...

that's certainly one appreciated gift!

Deziz World said...

Mommy has some holey socks too. She just wears them over another pair that has holes on the opposite sides. MOL But a cat toy's a great idea. We can't wait to see what you create. Big hugs

Luv ya'

My socks are heading in that direction. Time to buy more, with or without cats...
