My yarn inheritance has expanded to include crocheted squares made by my grandmother that were never actually put together. So, I crocheted 9 of them into a little cat mat while watching Hoarders. I don't think that's irony, but I don't know a word for "joylessly appropriate."
To make the mat, I put two squares right side together and single crocheted through the back loops. Well, except for the one that ended up wrong side up. The plan for the squares was always to donate them to an animal shelter. Shelter cats don't care about color choices.
There will be another unfortunate looking cat mat for Zoot to avoid some time soon.
Here you can see a rare moment of the kittens sitting still and enjoying the warmed up blanket.
I did put it back in their carrier when it was time for me to leave for work. They may have done something horrible to it since it had been moved to the laundry bag the next day.
