Heart Cat Campaign

In Sweden they are crocheting Nekoyama's Aminekos with fixed heart for kids with fixed heart :-)

Hjärtekatt projekt

The Swedish crocheters have managed to create half a thousand kitties with mended heart :-)
I plan on doing the same.
I have already crocheted four kitties in my life and I think it's nice and easy :-)
Here's the first one:

A siamese with shirt and kippah. :-)
My husband - the one whose cat this is - is Jewish, so I made his kitty "Jewish" as well :-D
Here he sits in between two gift cats:
and then I have made another Siamese with stronger colors, and I don't have a photo of him, but he's the size of the brown cat.
The black cat was for a Halloween swap, that got lost in mail :-( Anyway, because it was for a Halloween swap, it was whole black. The brown was for another swap, and I had only brown yarn for it.

I like cats with shirts and different color parts, like this American Cat.

I also like these calico cats by Megipupu
They kind of have more character than the perfect cats...
I know calico is more of an American term, and they are usually called "tortoise shell", and with some cats the tortoise shell is a better name, because their fur looks like tortoise shell, but I like the patchwork cats to be called calicos, after the fabric patchwork is usually made ;-)
but I like how it rhymes with Jellicle :-) I like to write it "jellico", to rhyme better with calico, even though I read jellicle is a short of dear little cats... 
also, jellico cats are better know as tuxedo cats.

But isn't this embroidered cherry kitty adorable? Such a nice idea :-)
