I doubt I will ever knit my own cat, but you should be able to replicate your little friend with the help from this book! Like the dog companion book, this book has an excellent index with thumbnails at the end, but there are no knitting instructions. This is also not a book for beginners!
There is more difference in the shape of the cats than I initially expected. They are also knit into different poses, curled up, laying down and standing. Once again, the selection of yarns is pretty fantastic (and explained well), and these selections are really what help make the cat.
I cannot see myself knitting my own cat as Keith may be allergic to that version. (Just kidding!) I am glad that I took the time to flip through it. I hadn't really thought about the different shapes and sizes of cats before!
