Pirate Cat

My sister owns several cats. She is what you call a “Cat lady”. Not me. I love cats but I do not have any. If I did, I would only own one. I just don’t like the idea of cat hair on my bed and furniture. Cats like to jump on counter tops and tables too and that would drive me crazy. 

One of her cats had an eye infection when it was younger and caused it to lose an eye. She often takes photos of her kitties because she just loves them and likes to show them off. After I seen this poor one eyed cat in several photos, I sent her a text and said “that cat needs an eye patch”. It’s blind eye just looked weird and I hated seeing it. 

So I had her send me the measurements of its head and I got to work. I took some black yarn from my stash and began crocheting it a little eye patch. After a couple attempts, I figured out the shape and size that would work. 

I mailed her the patch and once it was delivered, she tried it on her one eyed cat. A little while later, I received this photo on my phone.

I think it looks better now and I called it the “Pirate Cat”. 

I did not use a pattern for this eye patch. I just guessed at it. 


  1. Isn't that cute. I'm surprised the cat keeps it on!!
    We had a couple of cats at one time who were sisters and they were so much fun to watch playing together.

  2. You did good, the cat looks rather dapper. Cats are usually finicky, I am surprised her kitty left it on.

    1. I think it eventually slapped it off. Hahaha

  3. You are one crafty lady. We would not have an inside cat because of the loose hair. Cats are photogenic. I have never really 'liked' cats until I met 'Stormy Daniels'. The challenge of getting close to that feral was too much of a challenge not to try. So after months it worked and we became friends. I think I need a pet (besides Sherry) at times. I tell the kittens about their mama, they remember her (HAHA).
    But to the entry, that cat does look like a pirate! Good stuff and a great conversation piece for your sister.
    Stay warm over there.
    Sherry & jack

  6. What a cute eye patch for the cat!
