Knitters for Whiskers

Knitters for Whiskers

One of our volunteers at Oakville PetSmart, Irene, is part of a group called Knitters for Whiskers. Irene, and two other high school students, April and Diana, started a non profit project knitting blankets for cats to take with them on their journey home. They wanted the cats and kittens to have something soft to snuggle with in their carriers on the way to their new home. Often, adopters purchase a new carrier and have nothing to put inside with the cat/kitten. The group has 30 members and counting and in the past four months they have produced 45 blankets.

Currently, they are selling hoodies with their logo to raise funds. Each hoodie is $35.00 with $6.00 of the profit going to Ninth Life Cat Rescue. $4.00 will go to yarn and knitting supplies for the club.

The deadline for ordering a hoodie is Monday, April 8th. If you would like to support them and order a hoodie, vist the Knitters for Whiskers website, for an order form and details.


The group is always looking for yarn for the projects. If you have leftover yarn you wish to donate, please contact them via their website or drop off yarn to Irene on Monday nights at Oakville PetSmart, between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. Thank you!
