  6. He is beautiful, love his whiskers. You have caught his expression just right. Is he going to be a doorstop or a cuddly? My daughter would love me to make her a ginger one to match her real cat!

  11. Thanks for your comments everyone.

    Highland Monkey, I think he is just going to be a cuddly. He is quite a sturdy little (or should I say big!) chap but I didnt put cat litter in the bottom so I dont think he would be heavy enough as a doorstop.

    Ali, yes its quite easy to follow although I did deviate a bit from the original pattern with a few things but overall it wasnt too difficult. xx

    Did you use a pattern or did you make it up yourself? I love the puffy-look. And what a cute name!
