Last Monday I dropped of 6 large crochet blankets and a pile of Catnip Fish to my local RSPCA :)
The day was extremely cold, wet and windy hence the face I am pulling.
While there I was actually in tears as there were so many cats there and hardly any of them have toys at all and it really gave me a huge boost to make more and more catnip toys and since then I have made a further 20.
I can not donate money, or food but I feel donating the toys and my time and love to make them would make a tiny difference for the animals while they wait for their forever home :)
Wow my go fund me is at this total after 14 days! I have the Simming community to thank for this and one dear friend of mine who has just gone above and beyond to help me.
I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that has helped me to get this far, I have a long way to go still but this is so exciting for me.
I would love people to help if they can sharing this wherever possible and if people would like to donate I am so grateful for any help

Thank you so much for the Amazing help and making such a Awesome Article.
Many thanks to Spookyscones at Tea For Sims for highlighting this.
Some of you may know the Simmer LoubyLou1985 from the EA forum, where she has a number of Simmies, patterns and Lots available for download.
Amongst LoubyLou’s other activities, she knits for Cats Protection (the Cats Protection League) and the RSPCA – making quilts and catnip bags for our nation’s little purr monsters.
Which undergo the most rigourous testing and quality control.
That she is a primary pusher of the Holy Sacrament of Catnip means her place in paradise at the right hand of Bastet-Pasht is guaranteed for all eternity (Blessed Be Bastet, Blessed Be Her Holy Purr) – but on this plain matters are more difficult.
She’s been wheelchair bound the last three years thanks to her Non-Epileptic Attack Disorder (NEAD) getting worse to the extent her leg muscles have wasted – a mere two years prior…

My Minion hat for the Big Knit 2014 I love him :)
If you are wanting to help then this year the deadline for hats to be received is 12th December 2014
details here http://www.thebigknit.co.uk/join-in
I am so happy with this deadline as that means I can make even more, just think of all the 25p’s I could raise :D
I am a huge fan of The Big Bang Theory and love Amy’s crochet blanket, however I am not a huge fan of the design of it more the colours with the black edging.
So browsing the internet I saw so many different designs of blankets and fell in love with the starburst design.
So I have been busy making the inner parts of the squares as I plan to do something I have never done as join-as-I-go, a scary though but not that scary compared to knitting as I am finding with crochet if you make a mistake so much easier to fix,as long as you notice as you are going of course.
So I have calculated to make one that will be the size of a double bed approx. 408 square will be needed. Sounds a lot I think it is probably too many and my maths is probably completely off!
So here are circle colour combinations I have been working on
So far I have 20 of each so 240 I plan on just doubling this amount and then get busy joining them all.
I also love the colours and have used Stylecraft Special DK, I can not wait to show you the end result
