The catteries, or rooms the cats that are able to be in groups live in (some can't live in the catteries, either because they're not friendly, too little, or can't handle free feeding) have modular plastic cat tree things, kind of like this:

In order to spruce up the trees and make the vinyl a little more comfortable, they usually put towels in them...
Which is fine and dandy, except that the towels have to be cleaned, and a load of just bath towels takes FOR-EV-ER to dry. Solution? Little quilts, of course!

They also have bigger quilts and blankets that I told her I could probably cut down into smaller pieces that they can use in the cat center!
How exciting - and what a great use for scraps that were otherwise just going to keep hanging out in my sewing closet! :)
