What's that, Queen Mum? Is there anything in there for us? Is it fun?
Why yes, my sweet little ones. We have mice and other fun things for you. Just watch while we knit these clever little creatures all in one piece, starting from the tail, working our way to the bobble ears, and on to the tip of the nose. Too clever, simply too, and each mouse takes less than an hour!
And fuzzy balls filled with roving and catnip for my good little mousers.
Now what's on the needles? A paw for the clever door hanger. It was so much easier to increase stitches switching to a smaller needle for two rows.
And here it is, with a face even the Queen Mum couldn't love! Ah, well, the next one will have whiskers to rival Hercule Poirot!
But the final test is for the kitties to determine. Bentley immediately falls in love with his new toy. Some cats are so gratifying to their people, and he surely is one such darling. Do you suppose his recent neutering experience has something to do with his fondness for balls?
Porsche thinks there may be way too much fuss over all this wool.
Little Miss Aloof is not going to be bothered by any silly old mice made of mere yarn.
Oh-ho! But just wait until everyone's back is turned. Some cats have their fun on the sly.
What about the Royal Felidore? Shouldn't he have something new and fun, too? Perhaps a nice hat with very special ears to keep his head warm in a brisk wind.
