Cat eats goat (kid you not)

7 Feb

Here is a summary:


Horatio 1

Goat nil

You may remember the post on this scarf:


You know, the one I painstakingly and lovingly weaved from skeins of Dartmoor fleece at Craft 4 Crafters?

You may also remember that my fluffy cat Horatio is a ‘challenging’ animal (see, I’m a teacher, he isn’t “Bad”). I’ve regaled you with the tale about when he peed on my sewing machine. Well the little sod has struck again…

Picture me bleary eyed one morning on my way down to breakfast and I happen upon this:



N.b these are recreation photographs as if I’d had the camera near at the time it may well have become a feline colonoscopy

And now look at the state of it!



The aroma of the goat locks overcame him, and the die was cast. I put it down to jealousy, anything fluffier than him must go.

I think it is unfixable as I don’t have a peg loom to reweave it, hence me letting him have another go for the photos. Au revoir monsieur chevre; vive le chat touffu.

unbelievably, no animals were harmed in these events

Over to you:
Have your pets ever ruined one of your projects?
Do you know how I might fix this monstrosity!?
Any ideas what I can do to reuse 100g of beautiful ethical fleece?!

I’d love to hear from you!

    Oh my, it’s such a pretty scarf too! Now I guess it’s a new play toy. I had a cat that rolled my bathroom with toilet paper. The bathroom was a mess!

      Lol oh my goodness! The things we go through for our pets! We must be mad, but they are such lovely beasts!
