The Cute Cats of Craftsy

If you caught our post featuring the Canines of Craftsy earlier, you might have also noticed the kitty lovers asking where the cats were. Rest assured, Craftsy has plenty of wonderful cats, though they’re generally not in the office so it took us a bit longer to pull them off their window sills for their photoshoots.

  4. elizabeth nelson says:

    Such fun! After being out of the country for a spell, I look forward to making a couple kitties part of our home once again, including our Greta who has been residing with our daughter!

  5. Terri -TN says:

    I’ve enjoyed so much seeing the Craftsy animal babies, the dogs and the cats. I found a couple that resembles my two cats. It was fun seeing their pictures, thanks!

  6. Judy Chaffee says:

    What a wonerful collection of our intuitive family members! Thanks so much for introducing the entire family! Judy

  7. Jeann says:

    Another reason to like the Craftsy team!

  8. Estelle says:

    Love it. My cat is also crafty. He likes to help me by unpinning the seams I have just spent 5 min getting just right. He also has a theory that if he knocks any craft item off the table and onto the floor it magically becomes a cat toy that he is allowed to play with.

  9. Della says:

    Very nice; What would we do without our cats. They are like little sprays of sunshine!

  10. Jean says:

    I love cats and find it interesting how many crafters have cats too. Mine, all 15 of them, learn at an early age that yarn is not for playing with! They just want to sleep as close as possible to the lastest work in progress.

  11. Kate Maeda says:

    I loved the dogs, now I love the cats. Do we get to meet the birds and fish next? Maybe some ferrets? Had a dog once who liked to herd the cats and the fish. Much more successful with the fish, they stayed where she put them. The cats, not so much.

  12. 'Mergatroid' says:

    Good grief Jean 15?!

    Love the kitteh’s and you know how it is when you’re told ‘Don’t ask’!!!
    So Kirsten, what IS the ‘Tuna song’? :))))

    1. Kirsten says:

      The “Tuna Song” is a song I like to sing to Kita while putting food in her food bowl to the tune of The Archies “Sugar, Sugar”. My husband thinks it’s hilarious and has been threatening to video it and put it up on YouTube. Kita thinks it’s awesome and likes to dance around while I sing.
      It’s really stupid.

      1. 'Mergatroid' says:

        I think we should have it for viewing in here ;)
