International Cat Day

simple cat amigurumi

Today is a day to celebrate our feline friends. Cat owners know what beautiful creatures they are. Some are loving, some are aloof, some are silly. Although they sometimes have a bad reputation, studies have shown that having a cat can help to lower stress, anxiety and even depression. Cats can be entertaining as well as beneficial to your health. Today I have a collection of cat patterns to crochet and machine knit.
