Pink and Yellow Cat Blanket

Not only are these blankets great for making a cozy floor spot - but they are perfect for keeping your pet's favorite spot on the couch fur free. 

Available for $25 at Percy's Place Etsy Shop later today. 

Our Models...

This is Emily - she is almost always ready to have her photo taken. She's pretty sure she's pure bred royalty - Russian Blue, and anyone who questions this gets a few swift bunny kicks to the head. She has a strong athletic build and is willing to do anything to get the shot. Emily loves her family - she always has to be where the people are. Her favorite things to do are watching the birdies outside, watching tv with her grandpa, and hanging out with her beloved daddy. 

Abbie is certainly the most high fashion of our models - she's long, lean, with a long tail, gorgeous soft fur, and an unusual face. She also has the temperament of a high fashion model - sometimes she just doesn't want to get out of bed to work, and she can be very uncooperative on sets. Other times she's the consumate purrfessional and works it. When she's not modeling she's working on her tan at the top of the cat tree or ogling everyone's shoes or irritating her brother and sister until they bunny kick her in the head. Her favorite thing to do is get upset and scratch her pole to work out her frustrations. 

Eliot is our semi-retired male model. He rarely wants to work, but every once in a while he'll come out and give you the perfect shot of those soulful eyes. He's a little bit on the plus size, but insists that he's just fluffy. In his spare time he likes to hang out with his mom, get treats, sleep, get treats, run and hide under the bed at the slightest threat of stranger danger, get treats, look out the window to try and assess if danger is near, and of course - GET TREATS!

Let us know which model you would like to see more of!

About Percy's Place Blankets...

Percy was fortunate enough (and so were we) to be rescued by my daughter from a local shelter for $1.

 Even though Percy hated his siblings, he was enjoying the good life until he developed a rare cancer of the toe. Surgery to remove the toe was going to be extremely expensive so I started making cat blankets in order to raise money to assist with his vet bills. Thanks to all the wonderful cat folks out there, Percy had a successful surgery.

After visiting Percy many time, Percy made it clear he hated sharing his people and wanted desperately to be an only cat. So, Percy came to California to live with me in 2009. He quickly planted himself firmly into my heart  He learned that he had the ability to order all of us around and that we would respond without questioning his authority, especially when it came to his favorite time of day - outside time. 

In addition to making cat blankets I made larger ones for my family and friends. Percy  always stood nearby as I worked on the blankets, seldom leaving my side and tossing the occasional Percy nod of approval. He enjoyed our blanket time together as did I.

Upon his death I wrapped him in his favorite cat blanket and said a final good bye. I was happy that I could provide him the home he always desired - where he was boss and the center of attention.
It only seems appropriate that my new cat blanket site be named in his honor - Percy’s Place

Percy may have only cost $1, but the joy and happiness he brought into my life was worth more than any amount of money could buy.


The blankets are made of a soft fleece fabric with two different fabrics on each side. They are hardy and are can be machine washed then tumbled dry. The approximate size before tying the edges is 36” x  30” - they are fantastic for protecting furniture. 

Each blanket is made with love and I am sure a toss of approval from the Rainbow Bridge.

Blankets can be purchased here at my Etsy shop...
