Lovely Patterns for International Cat Day + A Heartwarming Video

Coinciding with International Cat Day, LoveCrochet is pleased to announce our partnership with Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in London! We’ve teamed up with some of the best crochet designers to bring you six amazing patterns. Five animal patterns are based on a real dog or cat that was once at Battersea, and has now been rehomed to a loving family, and another pattern is a cat-inspired blanket. The blankets are a natural match for LoveCrochet and Battersea, as every kitten and cat that leaves the cattery goes home with a donated blanket that was in their room with them. These handmade blankets offer a sense of familiarity in their new environment. The patterns are available here, and are can be purchased until the end of November. 100% of the pattern proceeds go directly to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home to help find homes for even more lovely little pets.

Hazel the Cat by Moji-Moji

Hazel, the charmingly one-eyed cat designed by Moji-Moji was based on a cat that came in as a stray needing major surgery after being hit by a car. Her right eye had to be removed immediately and sadly the vets realised the accident had damaged the optic nerve in her left eye too, leaving her blind.  A special indoor home was found for this sweet, young cat who’s so loving and great fun to play with.

Daffy the Cat by Lucy Collin

Daffy, designed by Lucy Collin, is based on a cat who had a tough start to life after she was found wandering the streets of Slough at just 4 months old. She was brought into the Battersea Dogs & Cats centre late and it was clear to staff that she had been a pet due to her affectionate nature. The poor girl wasn’t in a good condition and was suffering from sore eyes and cat flu. Thankfully she received plenty of TLC from the cattery staff and the vet nurses during her stay, and a month later was ready for a new home. She was snapped up almost immediately!
