Alley Cat

I wanted to make something fun for Joe his 8th birthday. I put my thinking cap on & revved up my internet searching and came up with this awesome pattern.
A little cat that lives in an alley in a garbage can, perfect!

I changed the pattern slightly on the garbage can but I still think it looks super cute.
Ironically, in real life, our garbage cans don't actually look like this, we have big green wheelie bins but hey, we've all seen enough episodes of Sesame Street to see Oscar the Grouch who lives in a garbage can! 
There were some more different shapes cats that I could have made but I chose this one because he actually pops inside the garbage can.
I used CottonSoft yarn from Hobium Yarns.  I used the colour #23 for the cat and the colour #49 for the garbage can.

The pattern is called Alley Cats from this designer.
So, what do you think of my alley kitty? 
When I gave it to Joe, he loved it!  He doesn't call it the alley cat, he calls it the Kitty in the Cookie Tin .. as our cookie tin looks a bit like this!
