Crochet Kitty Cat Chic!

Recently my niece received a kitten as a gift.  She was so excited, and rushed out to buy all the cat supplies she could find.  She told me that she was unable to find a collar for him, and wanted something special.  I was remembering a ritzy pet accessories store I visited in New York a few years back, and wished that we had one here Kuwait.  Then it hit me, I love to crochet jewelry, so this is right up my alley!  I wished it was a female kitten so I could really go over the top.  I tried to restrain myself with the embellishment, but I just couldn't resist the urge to use some metallic yarn!  I had to guess the size, as I wanted it to be a surprise.  I used velcro as a closure so it would be somewhat adjustable, and crossed my fingers.  To my relief and delight, it was a perfect fit!  I tried to take some photos of him in it, but kittens are so playful, he was really a moving target.  Here are a few of the best shots, so you can get an idea of how he looked in it.  I think I like this one better than the collars I saw in New York!
