We thought that Mr. Pinky, being an indoor cat, would appreciate a quilt that had green grass, flowers, bright colours and an outdoor theme.Â Mr. Pinky would love to go outside but we are afraid he might head for the road, and try to go to his former home in the country.Â Sometimes we take him out on a leash.Â His quilt has a rectangle that is embroidered with a pink cat outline, sitting in the long grass, chasing a bug.Â It has a pocket on the back for Catnip.
