Pet Bed Wrap - Scrap yarns


Size: (NEED)
Colors: 4-ply worsted scrap yarns
Pattern: My own
Hook: J
Date: February 2006

(1) Jaz under her new pet bed wrap. (2) Cleo on her "target" in her pet bed.

I bought a ped bed a few weeks ago to see if Cleo would enjoy it - and she did! Jaz also took a strong liking to it, and there were at least two rustle-tustle fights over who got to sleep in it (they ended up in the bed together). So, I bought another for Jaz and one for Bubba. (I got the beds at PetSmart in the dog section - yes, these beds are for small dogs!)

They love the beds!

I put Cleo's "target" on her bed (the "target" is Bill's name for the round pet pad I made in November that was quickly adopted by Cleo in her spot next to me on the small couch).

Jasmine always seems to be cold. When Bill is seated on one of the livingroom couches, she must lay on his legs over his knees facing away from him. It's her thing. At just over 10 pounds, this isn't very comfortable for Bill after 20 minutes or so. Now, she snuggles up in her bed next to Bill on the couch. Bill suggested I make her a blanket so she can be covered up to keep the top of her warm.

I started off yesterday thinking I would make an igloo-shaped object that would go around the pet bed and be open on one end so Jaz could go inside, do a U-turn, and lie with her head outside the igloo. I decided, however, to leave both ends open so Jaz could go out either side and have fresh air coming in from both sides. She likes it! Sometimes she lays with her head sticking out. Sometimes she keeps her head covered and her back end hangs out.


The beds are surely nice but do you really think that cats like them? As for my cat, he likes various boxes, but on the whole he adores to sleep on the floor!

Hi, Patricia - Yes, they definitely like the beds! They each have their own and rarely switch places. One time I washed and dried their beds and blankets and apparently switched the beds but not the blankets when I put them back, and they switched places for a few days until I switched the beds around again!
