My husband and I have 2 cats then my oldest daughter moved back home after spending 5 years in the military with 2 cats of her own. Now we have 4 and a Chihuahua who thinks she's a cat. When I need a quick knit I either grab a dishcloth or a cat toy. The book, Knits for Kitties is my favorite for these patterns. I have knit 3 teddy bears as this seems to be their favorite and put a bit of dried catnip inside them. 

It's time to grab some leftover worsted and knit a toy. These toys are looking pretty sad.
