Austie's crochet blanket?

I had bought a skein of yarn for $0.50. I thought I'd make Austie, my granddaughter's cat, a blanket while practicing a crochet pattern called the snapdragon. I thought I couldn't beat making a blanket for 50 cents. Now everyone knows cats like to get into/on EVERYTHING. I make quilts and he is all over them. Now who would think a cat wouldn't have ANYTHING to do with a crochet blanket? Austie would not lay on it for days! He usually lays above my head while I sit on the couch and when I put the blanket there, he would not lay there. Last night he finally laid on it, but today is avoiding it. What's up? I wish he could talk. I just don't get it. Is it the color??? LOL I think cats are color blind.
I have two Snapdragon shawls started. One I've used 2 skeins and need to get another, so I started another shawl. I'm on my second skein of yarn with that one. It is a cool pattern. I'll post pictures when I'm done.

Have a nice day! Hope all are out of harms way with the bad weather hitting.
