Crochet Cat Bed for Sassafrass


I wanted to use up some of the wool I had stashed away that I knew I would never use for clothing or accessories.  So I doubled up some blue and pink and made a little cat bed with Sassafrass in mind.  I wasn’t sure they’d like it, but I needn’t have worried.


Sassy was sleeping in my laundry basket though (as usual), so amazingly enough, Nekoka got first dibs.  He doesn’t exactly fit (I knew I didn’t have enough yarn for THAT big a bed!), but he looks cute anyway.


It didn’t take the Queen long to take over, however.


She liked the bed even better when I moved it into the sun.  DSCN4344

Don’t worry about poor abused Nekoka  — he found another perfectly comfortable spot in the sunshine.

  1. What a wonderful idea! You could sell these!

    You sure could. Bet it’d be better for Bugsy’s acne than the synthetic beds we’re using now . . . .

      My poor Nekoka gets chin acne sometimes too. I found it cleared up a ton when I switched to ceramic food dishes. I guess I just wasn’t keeping the plastic ones clean enough no matter how hard I scrubbed.

      • nadbugs says:

        Yes but . . . . I have never used plastic, and I wash the ceramic every time. So — a mystery in our case — but so glad to hear your strategy worked for you, dear gal. Meantime I’m swabbing Bugs daily with Vetericyn and hoping for the best. Eventually.

          what ever they can rub their chin up against can cause it. a water bowl, even a ceramic food bowl for some cats who are sensitive. Try plates instead..

  3. Fantastic ! Nekoka is a “snug” fit 🙂 The basket looks sooooo comfy and such great colours 🙂 x

    • Wazeau says:

      I was really surprised Nekoka got a chance at the bed – he can’t help how he spills over! He isn’t fat, he’s just twice her size 🙂

  4. Oh that looks quite COMFY!

    Great idea. Maybe when I finish the afghan I just started I will make a bed for Teddy.

  7. Connie says:

    got to love a one size ‘fits’ all bed 🙂 really cool.
