How I got the name:
They are called “Maddy’s Kat Mats” after my dog, Maddy. She was the cat rescuer. She loved kittens. When we found two siblings in a box on the sidewalk, we brought them home. Maddy cleaned them constantly; they were sopping wet but well loved, warm and content. We kept them, of course. Pepe and Peppermint Patty lead the staff with the addition of another rescue (now, AbiKitty) who wandered into our home with kittens in tow. Kittens found new homes and AbiKitty found her home with us.
I have spent time being obsessed with paint, clay, and dough (baking cakes, cookies and bread). Now my obsession has turned to creating mats for “kats” where color, texture and humor are all components for Maddy’s Kat Mats.
After retiring, I crocheted a large cat inspired mat for my granddaughter. I made several others for friends and their new babies. One friend remarked that her cat also loved the mat....and LO and BEHOLD, a new idea developed. I began making the mats ‘kitty sized’ and they were an instant hit with kitties. My cats (3) quickly became my staff. They help with the process by sitting on them as they are being made; but quality control is their greatest contribution. They try out all the new mats. They knead. They sniff. They sleep. This is how I know they are ready to go to new homes and new kitties.
The yarn keeps coming and process continues. The pile grows higher. The cats reach new heights. We hope your kitties will like them too.
Design inspired by Bernat "Purrrfect Crochet Play Rug" which uses Bernat Baby Blanket yarn.
Maddy's Kat Mats are hand crocheted and approx. 18" in diameter. These Kat Mats started out as baby rugs, but the cats liked them so much I made them smaller and now make them exclusivelfor the kitties. Kat tried, tested and approved! Paws Up!
