Feeling chilly?

Please ignore the horrible quality of these pictures. They're taken with the phone in poor light. Mom made the kitties sweaters for travelling in winter. You'd think they haven't survived travelling before. BOL!


No pictures of the finished green one, but here's the very beginning of it. She used up some leftover yarn, which was useful. (Let's just say there's plenty more where it came from.)

She also made super simple double fleece covers for their crates to keep out the cold wind.

Then she just stick them on a little trolley(? or whatever should we call it?), which initially is a shopping bag on wheels (from IKEA) and Mom just remove the bag and stick the crates on it instead. Quite handy!

Then we just head out, take a bus downtown and jump on a train to wherever we are going. It's quite easy when you're used to it. But we'll be honest and say that buying a car again (we have to when we move) will make for some easier trips now and then.

I'm down there, too! I love the train and busses and such - lots of people to love on me. I hope we won't use the car more than we have to!

So - do you think the kitties will stay warm all winter, even when we travel? BOL!


PeeEss: thanks for the gardening/seed site tips - please keep'em coming if you have any more. Mom have already ordered some seed. And by some I mean many. She'll very likely to get in over her head. At least she have her plant physiology and many years at home with kitchen gardens to lean on. I'm not expecting much, though. Still hoping we'll grow meatables, too.

Your Mom is very creative AND loving to think of the kitties' being warm. We would love to be able to ride the bus, but that isn't allowed here. We think you will like the car too, Bajas. But a ride on the bus every now and then should be a definite plan.

you must be having some fun down there. How many sweaters did mom knit so far? You are lucky you don't have a hat and booties too.
