Fat Cat!

Way back, months ago, this first creature I knitted for the animated film was a fluffy cat.  Recently, the animator was advised by her tutor not to use the fluffy cat as the fur would leave 'fingerprints' when being animated - remember the original King Kong and his rippling fur?

So I was asked to come up with a saggy, baggy, lazy cat who would probably spend it's time sleeping in front of the fire.  Hopefully, this chap will acceptable - he's well stuffed, with a few extra rows of knitting to add the bulk and curved back.  But he can also be moved to stand....
...and sit.  Although I am a bit dubious as to what he's doing here, it looks more like he needs his litter tray or a dose of wormer!
