A New Beastie… And Kitty!

Greetings, Beastie friends! It’s Tuesday again, and what better way to kick off your week than to spend a little time getting to know a new Beastie? Hello there, little monster… Plus kitty!

I’ve noticed a natural affinity between Beasties and cats over the years…
Beasties and Kitties - CrawCrafts BeastiesIs it because of their shared curiosity about the world around them? Or just because they both have pointy ears? Either way, my first Beasties with their own feline friends proved popular at the markets we went to last Christmas.

Skip forward a few months, and I was delighted to receive a picture of this kitty owner Beastie…

However, it seems that this Beastie was also craving more monstrous company. And, under the pretext of creating a special gift for my customer’s girlfriend, I set about making a complementary cat-loving Beastie to make this one’s life complete!

Let’s start with the colours – the same as before, but I switched the main colour and the stripes for a nice yin-and-yang effect.

Now, one more picture before I send this woolly duo off to their new home. Big smiles, everybo… GAAAAAAH!

And to any non-cat-people in the audience – fear not, I’ll have a less feline new Beastie for you next week.

See you then!

    1. Thanks, Ivonne! Before now I’ve always made light-coloured cats because it’s easier to do the faces… But this one turned out pretty well 😊 Cheers for stopping in!

  1. I know Finn is pretty fearless when meeting strange cats and most are well behaved with him, so you’re right, the pointy ears must be some sort of “I’m a cat friend” signal. As for Beasties with their own pets…cuteness overload!!!

    1. Ooopsie, this nearly slipped through the net! Thanks, Tammie… And yes, Finn’s eagerness to make feline friends wherever he goes does kind of back up the “cat friend signal” hypothesis! Although I suppose having a bunch of kitty roommates at home has probably helped to hone his cat-relating skills too… Cheers for dropping in! 😊

    1. Yes, it made me smile too! That must be one well-behaved cat – none of the felines I’ve ever known would have sat still for that photo op! 😹
