Comfort for Critters

~ Celebrating 11 Years & 67,000+ Blankets ~

chenango SPCA (NY)

"Your amazing box of goodies arrived earlier this week and we are all so grateful. Please tell your volunteers how much the animals are enjoying their blankets and catnip toys. We also had a litter of pups go home, and they love their new rope toys.

As you can see from the photos, we have a large sculpture room that holds 18 cats and they ALL had to check out the blankets. The blue one was a big hit! Our cats had a great time picking out their very own blanket and catnip toy! Thank you to CFC volunteers for donating their time and sending us these items."

"Here are our pets, loving their blankets! Thank you for your generosity!!"

cat care society (co)

"Thank you so much for the beautiful blankets for our cats. My office cat 'Krista' (above) inspects them before they go to the shelter. Each cat adopted goes home with a blanket just for them! What a wonderful thing! Purrs!"

"I was out of the office for a few days and came back to such a wonderful surprise - a lovely box full of handcrafted blankets for our animals! Thank you so very much! I have given the blankets to our shelter staff and will send you some pictures of animals napping on them soon!"

Magnificent Mutts (Il)

"We would like to say a super huge 'THANK YOU' for all the amazing blankets that you all donated to us!! All of our kitties are now going home with a very special, handmade security blanket that will make the transition to their forever home much smoother! You are such a thoughtful, generous and creative group of people!!!"

Greater chicago ferret Association (Il)

"The GCFA would like to thank you for your generous donation of two full bags of homemade blankets, covers and cloth toys. We are extremely grateful for your generosity!"

"Meowy thanks to Comfort for Critters for the beautiful mats for the kitties. They will especially be enjoyed on cold winter days! Our Phoenix (below, left), who had been doused in chemicals and is now recovering, chose her own color (the orange one!) and pulled it right out of the box and laid on it! Esa Mae (below, right) couldn't wait for them to be unpacked! She claimed the whole box!! Thank you Linda and Comfort for Critters for your kindness!"

  

Red River SPCA (TX)...

"These kittens were rescued separately (part of two litters) and bottle-fed. I put these two together for comfort...and added one of the CFC blankets. Then I placed the blue blanket on the floor to see what kind of reaction would occur. The PitBull (one of nine I'd rescued in response to the Sheriff's Department, when they were tiny puppies) pulled it under herself. The wolf (pure, not a hybrid, not adoptable) lay down next to the Pit for their mutual comfort routine. And my old Peke joined the group to reinforce the versatility and trust between these wonderful critters. Thank you for your great program! God bless you and your talented volunteers."

               

Kenosha Forgotten Friends (WI)...

"I would like to say, on behalf of all our kitties, that not only are the mats beautiful, but they all love them! It really helps when we deliver the kitty to their new home that they get to take their favorite 'blankie' with their own smell on it. I think it helps the transition for them.

One of our kitties took his blanket with him, and I mean took it with him! In his new home he carried it from place to place wherever he wanted to lay. He carried it in his mouth and put it down to sleep! I wish I had a video of that one! Thank you so much for thinking of our organization and our animals!"

C&W Rustic Hollow Shelter (IA)...

"Buttercup is a 17 year old feline who loves sleeping and lounging on your soft blankets. She is a sweet girl who has litter aversion, but we love her anyway! Thank you for sharing with  C&W furs."

Dire Straits (IL)...

"My foster dog, Ward Witt, LOVES his blanket. Thank you for providing these blankets to rescues and shelters."

Adrianne's Angels / St. George Pet Rescue (IL)...

"Five kittens started their lives last night on some Comfort for Critters blankets. Thanks Linda and all your great volunteers!"

Town Cats (CA)

"If the cats could thank you, they surely would with a head butt and a purr. We deeply appreciate your time and talent. Your beautiful creations are in use at our adoption center in pet food stores, in foster homes and at the shelter itself. Thank you.

These orphaned cats get so many hand-me-downs and they don't mind, but it warms my heart to give them something bright, cozy, and new that is just for them - a new blanket of their very own. Thank you."

Home Alone Feline Rescue (VA)

"Thanks so much for the absolutely beautiful box of pet blankets. Here are a few pictures of my foster babies enjoying the blankets.

Each one will take one of them home when they go to their forever home. Your group is so kind to share these, and they are very appreciated!"

Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition (NY)

"This is one of our little kittens enjoying the comfort of one of your lovely blankets. They are so wonderful and we are grateful to your organization for providing them to us. Thank you!!"

Animal Care Services (TX)

"Here's ACS foster dog Ziggy snuggling up on his CFC blanket. He loves it - especially since he's quite uncomfortable now until his demox mange goes away. His soft CFC blanket feels good on his raw, itchy skin."

Magnificent Mutts (IL)

"I would love to let all of your hardworking volunteers know just how much they are appreciated and how far reaching their donations travel! Almost every animal that comes into rescue comes with just the fur on their back. Thank you SO much for all your hard work and the love that you put into each and every blanket you make!!

My fosters are mostly dachshunds and they love to burrow into blankets more than just about anything. Each one of them pretty much picks out which blanket is theirs and that's the one that goes home with them!! Doxies can never have enough blankets! Take care and God bless!"

animal protective association of missouri (Mo)

"Thank you so much for the box of toys and blankets. I have attached a few pictures (above) of our cats enjoying them. Our staff and animals appreciate all that you do! Thank you!"

"Thank you so much for the blankets! I have attached a few pictures of the dogs using your blankets. The yellow Lab wanted to lay on the blanket, but she was too big, so she pulled the blanket over to her big bed and laid on it. In one of the pictures, the basset hound is trying to take the blanket out from under the Lab! Thanks so much!"

chenango SPCA (ny)

"Thank you so much for our new box of blankets! Thank all your amazing, you included for the donation of blankets and toys. It is so much fun watching the 'kids' pick out their blankets. The staff has seen a difference in some of the cats! Thank you and ALL your amazing volunteers for what they do."

chenango SPCA (NY)

"One of your amazing volunteers stopped in yesterday with a bag full of blankets. One is more beautiful than the next. I thought you would like to see one of our kittens, Ham, picking out her own blanket! Again, thank you for all you do!!"

whitman county humane society (WA)

"Thank you very much for the blankets! I have attached some pictures of the animals using them. Thank you so much!"

triple r pets (il)

"We followed your suggestion to share the blankets with our feral cat caretakers. It is a wonderful idea and the blankets are comforting many cats that have very little kindnesses shown to them. Thank you!"

Rescue Me (KY)

"Little Sammy was very sick when we took him in. He loves his blanket and now that he is all well, he pulls his blanket around with his teeth everywhere he goes. We call him Linus. Thank you so much for helping Sammy feel better."

Boone Area Humane Society (IA)

"This is our shelter mascot, Joe, who insists on trying out the blankets first! We just received another box full of your beautiful blankets, or as we call them 'snuggie', for our cats and dogs! We are so grateful! Thank you so much!

Our cats especially love them. When every cat or kitten gets adopted they get to take their special blanket home with them to adjust to their furrever home! Thanks again for all you do, it really makes a difference!"

Four Paws (IL)

"Here is a photo I hope you can use to send to your volunteers. This is Sean, one of two Siamese cats that were dumped on the side of the road in one carrier. Our rescues appreciate your volunteers' beautiful work.

Thank you for helping to make our rescues comfortable while they await their new home!"

C&W Rustic Hollow Shelter (IA)

"Oma is a semi-feral (wild) kitty who was rescued from a bad situation and had to have a total ear ablation as her one ear was totally closed (she had been shot by a BB gun). We really appreciate Comfort for Critters and all you do for felines to make them comfortable. We also use the blankets in our isolation cages when kitties are being medically treated or are sick. They are purrfect for the cages. Thank you for sharing with C&W furs."

Franklin County Humane Society (VT)

"We just received our blankets! Thank you so much. This picture shows Little Ben checking them out. Thanks again, they are much appreciated!"

Almost Home Foundation (IL)

"We got the nicest surprise when we went to Luv-A-Pet tonight...blankets for kitties!! Purrl made herself at home on the beautiful blue fleece blanket! I love seeing our rescued cats having the same type of comfort they would have in their own home.

Rescues stretch to provide the medical care, food and basic supplies for our pets. Each cat having a blanket of their own is not always in the budget. You can see from the photo how important it is to the pet. Thank you to you, and all the angels at CFC. Please keep up the good work!"

red river spca (TX)

"The package of beautiful quilts plus toys arrived today. I HAD to send you these pics while they're 'hot off the press'! I acquired these four pups, plus their mama and daddy, via responding to an SOS. Both parents were dreadfully thin but friendly. All 6 tails wagged when I picked them up alongside a very remote road. Still underweight, the parents weighed a bit over 60 pounds each. We finally received rain, so you can imagine what those pups looked like, a couple hours ago! (Hint: they were NOT white). They seemed bored, so I tossed a couple of the blankets into the tub. Thank you so much!"        

  

Rescue Me Shelter (KY)

"This is Holly, and Holly loves her blanket! She will not share it either - LOL! Thanks so much!"

good mews animal foundation (ga)

"The Good Mews kitties would like to thank Comfort for Critters for the blankets they sent! As you can see, the kitties are loving them. Catsanova (above) loved his so much, he fell asleep on it for hours! Amy Lee (below) was so enthralled with hers, she rolled around on it and even did the bunny kick with it. We told her it was a blankie, not a toy! Thank you Comfort for Critters for thanking of our kitties!"

Lynchburg Humane Society (VA)

"Thank you so much for the lovely, cozy blankets for the cats! We received them today, and they are fantastic! I've attached a few pictures of one of our current kittens eager to see what was in the box. This is such a wonderful gift for our center for pets. Thank you for all the time and care spent making these!"

Rover Rescue (IL)

"Here is a picture of Shadow. She was the runt of a litter of 6 puppies and she couldn't even walk when we first got her. I think she hadn't had a chance to develop her muscles, but she was fine after a couple of days. She has hip problems from it already at 7 months, but is extremely happy and loves her soft blankie! Such a lucky doggy.

Thank you to whomever made these blankets. They are so comforting for all the fosters!!"

Town Cats (CA)

"You are so wonderful! Thank you for the donation of beautiful, handmade blankets. We received these blankets, and as you can see in the photos of Cocoa and Noah, the kittens clearly love the blankets! They snuggle right in.

The blankets are so well-made and the colors are gorgeous. You make cute kittens look even cuter! Thank you for your kindness and generosity!"

red river spca (tx)

"It's hard to get a picture of these critters enjoying their blankets without posing them, but my favoriet is the two little dogs comforting each other right after they were spayed. In addition to the blankets being beautiful, they're soft and durable and they wick up moisture. Thank you again!"

furry friends animal rescue (tx)

"Thank you Comfort for Critters for sending us goodies for our foster animals! Tucker, one of our foster's resident cats, tested them out and gave his stamp of approval. We can't wait to use them and hand these blankets and balls out when our animal gets adopted. Thank you very much!"

rover rescue (il)

kenosha forgotten friends (wi)

"We received the box of beautiful blankets yesterday. We decided that our little Phoenix, who is suffering from severe burns, got first pick at the softest one! Here she is on one of them (along with her Green Bay Packers shirt)! We have found these blankets are a huge help when the animal goes to their new home to take along their scent. Thank you so much for all the work that goes into making these babies comfortable!"

Rescue Me Shelter (KY)

"This is Julia, our very scared Lab girl. Once I gave her a blanket, she cuddled with it and settled down. The blankets help our pups and dogs so much. We take in a lot of sick pups and these blankets make a world of difference for each and every pup.

We can't thank you and the other ladies that make these blankets enough. Our dogs and pups, and also the cats, love them and cuddle with them. The blankets give them some security. Thank you so much for helping our pups and kittens feel better while they wait for a home to call their own."

Red Door shelter (IL)

"The kitties at Red Door were very happy to receive your package. Our staff immediately started handing out the blankets in all our cat rooms.

Here are our elder cats snuggling with their new blankets. Many thanks from all of us at Red Door, we truly appreciate your hard work to make homeless animals comfortable. Have a wonderful year!"

Red River SPCA (TX)

"Your gift of blankets for our critters arrived safely! They will all enjoy their blankets. Attached is a picture of a couple of pups who've clearly given their paws of approval to one of your GREAT knitted blankets! With sincere appreciation I will share the blankets (except for the one that, as the picture proves, has already been claimed), with our other three foster homes."

Almost Home (IL)

"We LOVE the blankets from Comfort for Critters. We use them up at our Luv-A-Pet Center at Petsmart. We want to make sure our cats are comfortable, and there is nothing better than something soft to curl up on. A little bit of home away from home.

We also use the blankets at our adoption shows. We put them in the crates with the cats. When a cat gets adopted, we send the blanket home with the adopter. This way, the cat has something that smells familiar in their new home. A security blanket!

The blankets make perfect cat carrier liners. Some of our fosters travel 30 minutes or more to come to the adoption shows. Our kitties travel in style!

Our foster homes love the blankets too. This picture was taken at a foster home. You can see how much they all love their blankets.

Thank you and everyone at Comfort for Critters. I bet you had no idea how many ways your beautiful blankets are being used, or how much comfort they give. We appreciate how much you care about homeless pets!"

C&W Rustic Hollow Shelter (IA)

"Ashley is a kitty with Hyperthyroidism and he likes his blanket in his cat bed! He is in a kennel for the moment, but will soon have a room of his own... with his own blankie!

We really appreciate CFC and all you do for felines to make them comfortable. We also use the blankets in our isolation cages when kitties are being medically treated or are sick. They are purrfect for the cages. Thank you for sharing with C&W furs."
