I can’t even count how many cat crafts I’ve come across in the last few weeks or so. I feel like they’re everywhere and I love it. Crafts like these just make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, even if I’m not planning on making them myself.
I’m big into animal crafts, if you haven’t noticed from the last few Cheap Eats posts I’ve published. When I’m not looking for and making fox crafts, I’m drooling over cat crafts. Even though foxes and cats are from two different animal families, I just love them both so much. I think it has something to do with the shapes of their faces and their super cute triangle ears. I can’t get enough of them! 🙂
I also think I love cat crafts as much as I do because I just really want a cat to call my own. The family cat (that lives with my parents) is the exact opposite of the kind of cat I want. We rescued her off of the street when I was younger. She was three months old and just beating up on all of the other feral kittens in the neighborhood. So, when there was a movement to get all of the kittens off of the street and into good homes, we took her in to socialize her and make her less mean. Needless to say, we ended up keeping her.
For years I’ve tried to befriend her but she runs away from everyone most of the time and stays in the basement. The only time she’s “friendly” is when she’s hungry or she really wants human attention. That’s it. The rest of the time she’s a snobbish queen who just sits on the same chair every day and hisses if she’s not happy that people are around. I still love her, of course, but she’s not the cat that I’ve been waiting for.
So, until I get my own cat, I’ll be making animal crafts. After spending about two hours on CraftGawker (which is a pretty short amount of time for me), I found all of these fantastic tutorials for a wide array of cat crafts, including ones for my eventual new feline friend.
