Human used to have a pattern like this, but they doubled the thread for the soles and did seed stitch. She says these look warm.

But she says even the small is too big for a cat

My mom makes bootie slippers all the time, but I think she'll like seeing these. The double souls make a lot of warmth and comfort sense and I don't recall her ever making any with double souls. These really do look as good as they look to be warm and comfy. Thanks for sharing!
