"We just wanted to let you know we received the beautiful handmade blankets! As you can see in the attached photo, the beautiful Moette loves hanging out on her blanket.

THANK YOU! One of our fosters brought home one of your beautiful blankets to her senior foster cat, Frankie Hollywood. He's headed to his forever home this weekend, and we're so excited to send his blanket home with him. I also got a picture of him playing with one of the toy mice you gave us. Thanks!

"Please let your volunteers, who make items for the adoptions, know that Charlotte (pictured) is enjoying her blanket!"

"Piper thinks these colorful blankets from Comfort for Critters compliment her fur quite well. She would like to thank all of the people who worked hard to make all of these cozy blankets, she knows the rest of the shelter animals will love them as much as she does."

"Transport days are long days for the pups. They don't get water or fed in the morning as it's a long trip starting around 4:15am, way down south in Tennessee, and arriving up here about 11-12 hours later, depending on traffic and weather. Then there's the excitement of meeting their foster family, getting a bath and fed. By then they're pretty knocked out. Here's a photo of a couple of today's transports snoozing under their CFC snuggles. The folks at Safe Haven really love & appreciate the efforts of you and your volunteers!"

"On behalf of the animals and the Palm Valley team, we would like to thank you and the Comfort for Critters volunteers for these cozy blankets! These blankets will keep our animals comfortable and warm in their new forever homes.

Your donation makes a huge impact and is greatly appreciated by our animals and everyone on the PVAS team."

Chenango SPCA (NY)

"Dobby (pictured above) came to us as a stray. Turns out he was on the streets for a month after his human mom died. Human dad stopped in to visit and was shocked to see his cat. This large boy was a joy to us with a wonderful and feisty personality. Yesterday was his first day home in 5.5 months, and yes, his blanket went with him!

"Cotton and his friends want to thank Comfort for Critters for making these gorgeous blankets for them! The blankets are sent home with the adopted kitties, so they have something to comfort them while they transition into their new home! Thank you for thinking of our cats and kittens!"

Cat Care Society (CO)

           "We just received a beautiful assortment of blankets from Peggy B. They have been approved by Nonie, chief blanket inspector at Cat Care Society. We adopt over 400 cats a year to their forever homes with their blankets. Thank you so much, it makes a huge impact on adopters to know that someone cares enough to make a difference in our cats' lives. Purrs!"

chenango spca (ny)

"We so appreciate what you and your volunteers do for so many animals. We tried something new when the box arrived. It didn't work out as I hoped, but it was a lot of fun. We thought we'd let the cats pick their own blanket!

They were like kids in a candy shop, rolling on them all, crawling underneath and a few took a nap! Thank you all for being who you are, the world is a better place because of you!"   

dupage county animal shelter (IL)



"I wanted to email to thank you for the BEAUTIFUL blankets from Comfort for Critters. Our animals are already enjoying them. Attached is a picture of one of our newest residents, Daisy. Daisy came in and hadn't been groomed in so many years that her fur wasn't even matted anymore, it was in locks that reached past the floor. The soft blanket provided by your organization helps her sensitive skin feel better! Also...I'm wondering where you purchased the yarn. All the women at the shelter are in LOVE with the colors! Thank you again!"

whiskers or wags (ky)


"Thank you so very much for the kitty blankets! They LOVE them! This is Sunshine! She has been at the shelter since September 11, 2017. She came in with two little, 6 week old kittens. They are all grown up now and she and her boys are still here. She has come a long way! She was very, very shy and her boys were wild little things. Now they all want attention and love. We have over 140 cats and kittens at the moment and are so very thankful for the blankets!"

"We would like to give a huge thank you to Comfort for Critters, for sending us toys and blankets for our foster cats and dogs! This photo shows one of our fosters' resident cats checking out the merchandise! As you can see, he gives them two paws up! The dogs love the toys and the kittens love these blankets, which we send home with them when they get adopted. Thank you, Comfort for Critters, for your kindness to rescue groups like ours!"

"As you can see, our cats are enjoying their new blankets. They always seem to love these new blankets so much more than they do a towel or rug to sleep on. They start our slowly sniffing it and then climbing on it, and some like Bruce will wear it on his back. You and your volunteers are amazing for thinking of our animal's needs. Something like this goes a long way in their lives."

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

"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!"

"We would like to say a super huge 'THANK YOU' for all the amazing blankets that you all donated to us!!

You are such a thoughtful, generous and creative group of people!!!"

kenosha forgotten friends (WI)

"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."

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!"

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."

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!"

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

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!"

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!!"

"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!"

Thank you volunteers & supporters!!!

Chenango SPCA (NY)

"I hope you enjoy these photos of Zucchi. This young lady came to us at only six weeks of age. She was skin and bones and had a severe respiratory infection. We weren't sure if she'd survive. After a couple months of treatment and a lot of TLC she was ready for adoption. And then nothing, no one looking at her. Zucchini kept growing and became more loving. Your last box of blankets arrived and we let Zucchini help us unpack it.

As you can see there wasn't much unpacking going on! She already had one of your blankets but after being with us so long she needed a new one.

Then on the 5th of the month, Zucchini found herself a forever home! Please thank all your volunteers for all they do and let them know they make a difference one blanket at a time."

Nebraska Humane Society (NE)


"The hand knitted and crocheted blankets are just lovely and our kitties are loving them! Thank you so much for the box of love! I've sent along a few photos of some of our felines appreciating them. I wanted to get these to you so you knew we received them and our cats are definitely enjoying them. Thank you for sending them so that these guys have comfort in the kennels, plus something familiar to go home with."

"I wanted to reach out and say thank you for your recent donation of blankets! I thought the volunteers may want to see a photo of their blankets in action. These are two current foster kittens, who I am lucky enough to be fostering, and they LOVE their blankets. Bella (mostly black) and Noodle (most white) will move them around to make sure they are in the sunniest spot for their nap. Thank you again for sending blankets for our kitties. The staff and kitties are very grateful!!

Harmony House for Cats (IL)

"We would like to send a big thank you to Comfort for Critters! Comfort for Critters volunteers make the beautiful blankets that get sent home with Harmony House cats.

"Thank you for the donation! Here is what one of the volunteers posted in our internal group: I arrived today and saw a bag of donated quilted blankets. It was such a welcoming gift for our dogs. The photo doesn't do these beautifully sewn and stitched quilts justice, but our dogs took notice! One of our newest arrivals, an owner surrender, curled up and fell asleep. I assure the group that donated these wonderful, cozy trimmed blankets, they were put to use! I was blown away, each blanket has a sewn border and decorative stitching. Someone really put love and time into each one."

Cat welfare advocates (CA)

"We received a package of beautiful, homemade blankets from CFC. We want to thank all of you for all that you do. Cats like to be cozy and warm and it is important for them to have something of their own as they await adoption and as they transition into their new homes. The creations will also help us market the cats who are up for adoption, as they look so adorable on their cat-sized 'magic carpets'. We thank you again for your kindness and continued generosity to animals in need."

"This is one of our kitties 'inspecting' all the wonderful blankets that just arrived. Or is he hoping to save them all for himself? We are so grateful for the blankets, and the adopters comments on how beautiful they are, and what an awesome gift for their new cat or kitten. Thank you to all the Comfort for Critters volunteers for sharing their time and talent to make blankets for our cats."

"Thank you so much for your kind donation of the handmade blankets. Here is a picture of our foster dog Zack (aka Squeaker). Zack loves to hang out on his dog bed, under his blankie. He found great comfort in his new blankie. Kudos for all your hard work your organization provides to help our furry friends."

Cat Welfare Advocates (Ca)

     "Thank you so much for the stunningly beautiful, handmade blankets that we received at Cat Welfare Advocates. You guys are awesome! As you can see, the blankets passed inspection.

We distribute the blankets to kittens in foster homes and as each kitten gets adopted, his or her blankie goes with the cat to the cat's new family. The blankets bring the cats comfort and they look so adorable on or under them. The blankets soften the hard look of the cages that we use to house the kittens at adoption fairs. The colorful blankets really are an important marketing asset; it is easier for potential adopters to imagine the kitten in their own home. Thank you all for your gifts!"

Animal Protective Association (MO)

 "I just wanted to thank you for the recent donation of cat blankets. Our kitties love to snuggle on them while at the shelter. Once one of our cats are adopted, we send their blanket home with them so they can have something with a familiar scent to help them adjust to their new environment. Thanks so much for all of the work your group does!"

"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!"

Mike is also enrolled in the Jackson Galaxy Cat Pawsitive Program where he is learning high fives, nose touch and other things to help him find a home of his own. Thank you again for all you do!"


Harmony house (il)

"The cat in the picture was adopted today, with his brother, about half an hour after the box (of blankets) arrived. We sent them both home with blankets from that box and with a catnip pillow that he immediately found in the box. Thank you for what you do! It really helps our cats start out well in their new homes."

"We received blankets a week ago, so as you can see the cats are enjoying them already. The kitten is Lennie, he is always shy without his brother George. He started out nervous on the blanket but we then added some Feliway spray and he seemed to calm down. I would like to once again thank all your volunteers for doing what they do to make shelter cats' time in a shelter more comfortable. Thank you all again!"

"Those of us at A Forever Home Rescue, in Florida, would like to send a huge THANK YOU to Wendy C., a member of the Comfort for Critters team, for restocking us in adoption blankets! Also, we wanted to send our appreciation to Comfort for Critters, for always helping to get the word out of our needs. The entire group is just amazing and, although it might not get stated enough, are much appreciated for the generous gestures of providing animals an item of comfort and reassurance, as they adjust to their new family and home. Thanks to all of you for doing what you do!"

"We love your blankets and so do our cats. This is our gorgeous Casper, hanging out in the outdoor enclosure sitting on her comfy blanket. Thank you so much for everything you do in making the life of a shelter pet that much brighter.

Frankie's friends cat rescue (PA)

"Luke and '8' want to thank you guys on behalf of Frankie's Friends. These are amazing! The perfect size and will be very much loved and appreciated.

Luke is missing a back leg and his tail. This doesn't slow him down a bit and he does Luke 'Zoomies' around the office. He does need his bladder expressed daily and sometimes leaves Hershey kisses so he will probably live with us forever, but he loves it here. 8 was found emaciated on local railroad tracks with a broken jaw and covered in maggots. He's also a happy lifer and visits nursing homes. They are unofficial mascots!"

"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!"

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."

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!"

"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!"

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!"

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."

"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!"
