Mermaid Cat Knitting Kit - Mer-cat or Pur-maid

My mermaid cats are part cat and part mythical creature, so they're purrrfect for knitters looking for a magical project. These knits are not only super chunky, they're also super cuddly. Choose between my Mer-cat or Pur-maid (pictured), or knit them both. See my other listing for their friend, the Uni-cat
