This is my version of the October cat designed by Cindy. He is a tribute to my orange tiger-striped cat that died a year ago at the mature age of 16+ years. My cat is all dressed up for Halloween, and I managed to finish the block just in time yesterday before the trick-or-treat'ers started ringing the door bell.
This is the favorite picture of my cat, taken a few years back. I love the way he looks so relaxed and superior; like he has full control over the world! I will always remember him, he was a good companion and comfort to everyone in the family his whole life.
