a new Oliver


I'm the newest resident cat at fourwhitepaws!

Laurie and Nancy just dropped by to bless me with this amazing gift!! Laurie knitted me an Oliver! Wow!! I love it!!!

Now, let's see if Oliver loves Oliver!

Always good to be cautious when meeting a new cat

Start by sniffing the butt

Hmmm...

Oliver's not looking very sure about this

Knitted Oliver has bendable legs and tail!

The second meeting:




New best friends!!

Laurie, thank you, thank you, thank you for the delightful gift! I feel honored and blessed that you would knit me an Oliver! How very, very sweet.

For those that don't remember, the patterns for these adorable knitted feline friends come from Knit Your Own Cat: Easy-to-Follow Patterns for 16 Frisky Felines. I think I'll be asking Laurie to teach me how to knit, these would make the perfect Christmas gifts! And now I want a knitted kitty action figure in the likes of each of my cats!

  1. I am so in love with this cute knitted Oliver! Oliver and Oliver are adorable together! We had Mr Toes fixed and he is now inside and so happy. What a love bug he is! Charlie is getting use to him and doing OK for sure!! I am happy to now be a two cat home and feel so good about getting a kitty off the streets! Hugs, Linda

  4. We love knitted Oliver, he's great. And yes, that last pic is just wonderful -- we're impressed the real Oliver didn't whap his knitted self. LOL.

  7. That is totally awesome! I wonder if there is a company out there knitting cats that are made to look like your own cats?! That would be a great idea!

    So cute to see Oliver with his "mini-me" or in this case, "mini-meow"! :P

  10. Thank you for setting up the 'meeting' and taking pics, Phil. Best laugh I've had today :) I'm glad Oliver likes his little friend and didn't whap him upside the head. He would have been puzzled when it didn't run away - ha! I'd be happy to teach you how to knit and these cats are pretty easy once you have the fundamentals down. You happen to live dangerously close to a great yarn shop..............

  11. Please tell me how knitting is accomplished with a house full of cats! I gave up anything string related after macrama(sp). It was like they knew I was going to work on it and would lay in wait! lol

  13. I know I am a bit late in my posting but I have to say I LOVE knitted Oliver. What a great present Laurie knitted for you! And she even beaded a collar with Oliver's name on it. That is one very special gift. I think that I need that book so I can make some knitted cats too.
    I love the photos of the real Oliver and the knitted Oliver together. they are wonderful.
