Kiki the Witch

12 Feb

Five months ago, on August the 28th, my little witch Kiki, got her angel wings. She was only 11 years old and she spent the last 8 years with us. We met her at a local shelter and little is known of her previous 3 years but they probably weren’t easy, as they left a permanent mark on her behaviour: she was a bit grumpy, but we didn’t love her less for that. I miss her so much.


The Scratcher

3 Jun

Last Friday my TV set decided it has been used enough (barely 3 Years!!!) and broke down. 😦
Of course the warranty had expired so, what to do with the old cardboard packaging (that you are obliged to keep in order to eventually return the damaged TV)?
Well, I saw a tutorial for a cat scratch pad on Nifty and I gave it a try….


My brother’s kitty, Pimpi, seems to enjoy it, despite she hasn’t already found out exactly how to use it! 😀

Yes, that’s correct. This kitty’s bed is literally fingermade, as I have used my very own fingers instead of a traditional crochet to make it.
Nemo seems to appreciate it…

Cats’ day

18 Feb

As yesterday was National Cats’ Day here in Italy, I decided to make this Chainmaille bracelet to celebrate it… The pattern is called Helmsweave and I added a little kitty charm and a black glass bead to one end….

Voucher Holder

7 Jan

As Christmas is over, I finally can upload some of the gifts I made for friends and family.

Here is the meal voucher holder I made for a colleague and friend. As she’s a cat-lover I added a little cat button as an extra! BTW, she apparently liked it, since she’s already using it….
