Patterns for Pet Outfits

p-hf_bookplate081.jpgSince posting the info-graphic about what to put in an Emergency Evacuation Kit for your fur-baby, I have been trying (somewhat unsuccessfully) to find a pattern for that adorable rain slicker and hat the cat on the chart was wearing.emergencyKIT

That said, I did find a lot of adorable patterns and as you can see, there is a hooded robe, which could be made in another fabric to be a slicker … I am sure this could be altered to fit a cat. I am also sure that Purrsiedon, who has a very odd love for water, would never wear this.

Click on the jpg below to go the the website and choose from many patterns … that said, I shall also warn you to expect Spanish.

And if worst does come to worst, there is always google translate 😉01c961889cc626e022407eb3c1948ef1

The Reader’s Digest has assured us for decades that Laughter is the Best Medicine 😉

BTW, before this post, did you know that cat lady starter kits come is two sizes, regular and crazy?
