We found fabrics, they were blue, so we made blue Cat Ball cat beds. Stop giggling.
See? It's a bunch of Cat Ball® cat beds, and they are blue. Even the Cat Canoe® is blue
I can't remember what happened. Did I try to get some design that was sold out, and they sent me a replacement? Or did I actually choose all of these blue fabrics and get exactly what I ordered? All I can remember is these boxes arrived and I just kept pulling blue fabrics out, bolt after bolt of blue (with delicate shiny silver details) and I realized right then, "We are gonna end up making blue Cat Balls, and everyone is gonna lose their composure over this."
I was not wrong. We made one Cat Canoe® and four different Cat Ball® cat beds, and everyone is still snickering and giggling.
We made this one first, so we called it #1. The striped shell fabric looks sort of like rain, and we needed some way to describe this thing, so now you know the origin of the ridiculous name. This dark blue lining will help to disguise shedded fur from black (or mostly black) coats, dark brown, and tabby fur.
OK, this time it's the same fabric print inside and out, just in two different color ways. A light lining like this can help to disguise white shedded fur.
The same flower design, which includes tiny spots of metallic silver, is used for shell and lining. We also made a Cat Canoe® with these fabrics.
Our last blue Cat Ball® is white, so this should be easy to tell from the others. The lining is on a light blue background. This bed is the total opposite of our first "blue ball" Cat Ball.
We only made one Cat Canoe in these fabrics, selecting the flower print for this cat bed design.
We make a few production runs each year, cutting a big stack of fabric each time. When we run out of the beds we usually are not able to get any more of the fabric.
