Cat and Dog Cuddles
As a quilter, you have probably seen how your cat and dog companions love to sit on your quilt projects and completed quilts. Now we can share our quilts with cats and dogs in need by making “Cat and Dog Cuddles”.
A ‘cuddle’ is a quilted pad of a specific size which is given to a cat or dog waiting for adoption at one of a number of Sonoma County animal welfare organizations, such as Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County. The quilted pad becomes the property of the cat or dog, and goes with the animal to her/his new home when adopted, so that something familiar is there in the new environment.
Basically a Cat Cuddle is a quilt of about 25" x 17" which can be safely put through a washer and dryer repeatedly and has no loose threads or chewable items such as buttons. Dog Cuddles can be larger but must also be safely put through a washer and dryer repeatedly with no loose threads or chewable items such as buttons.
Look for the "Cat and Dog Cuddles" sign at the Business Meetings to pick up instructions, batting and fabric.
