Cinnamon, who is 17 years old, recognizes a good thing when she sees one.
The cat became delighted when she saw Ella Parsons, her human sister, making a delicate white scarf. She had no idea that the scarf would eventually belong to her, but circumstances altered due to a yarn shortage.
According to Callie Parsons, Ella’s sister, “during quarantine, my sister was bored so she decided to knit a scarf with this very gorgeous cashmere yarn that she had.” However, the scarf was quite little and she appeared to have run out of yarn.
Parsons and her sister decided to give the tiny white scarf to Cinnamon, and see what the cat would make of it. They didn’t know what to expect since Cinnamon had never shown any particular interest in wearing clothes.
But from the moment Cinnamon touched the scarf she fell in love.
Cinnamon “fell in love with it instantaneously and now wears it all the time,” according to Parsons. She simply enjoys wearing it around the house and sleeping with it.
Cinnamon finds her scarf to be so comfy that she won’t take it off whether playing outside, eating, or sleeping. Cinnamon has never received a gift like that, so I think she likes her scarf, said Parsons. We often give her catnip snacks and interactive toys, but never a blanket.
And the handmade present couldn’t have come at a better time for Cinnamon.
“Since she is older she likes to sleep a lot so it is definitely something nice for her to snuggle with,” Parsons said. “Cinnamon also sat with Ella while she made it so she knows it was made with love.”
Parsons posted a video of Cinnamon and her precious scarf on TikTok, and within a week, the video gained over 600,000 likes. Cinnamon now has a devoted group of fans, but none are as devoted as Cinnamon is to her little scarf.
“She loves her scarf and gets mad if we try to take it off,” Parsons wrote on TikTok. “If it falls off, she waits for us to put it back on.”
