Actually, the title should be how to fail in getting your cat to hate you.
If you have a cat and can knit you'd think it would be easy to get your cat to hate you, right? You'd just have to knit him (or her) a hoodie.
My cat decided to just ignore the hoodie and take a nap. A NAP !? I actually had to bribe him with a treat so he'd sit up.
Best of all he still cuddles me.
