Lost Dog Found

Don’t panic, I haven’t added yet another homeless waif to my brood – this one is made of fabric and is one of the gorgeous blocks that Avis at OhSewTempting sent me back in the mists of time – well October anyway – as part of the F2F block swap I’m participating in but, because of a mix up with the postcode, we thought they were lost for all time.

Thank goodness they weren’t because they are all gorgeous but the dog one especially .

Even though the post office had changed the postcode to the correct one on the envelope, they still sent it back to the U.K. instead of forwarding it on to the correct region of France.  What were they thinking? Still, I’m just grateful they are here now.

My F2F blocks from Avis

The other three blocks are stunning too.  I’m going to have the best quilt in the world and nobody will be able to tell me different;)

Speaking of dogs, which I sort of was, I have been so disorganised leading up to Christmas this year that there has been a run on the dog collars I make to raise funds for the dog and cat shelter and I have run out of webbing.  No hope of new stock getting here in time for anybody ordering them as Christmas gifts, so unless people want red or brown collars, they can’t have one.  What a muppet!! Still, it was my first Christmas making these and I hadn’t really thought of them as being more popular at this time of year.

So, my best seller has had to be taken off the ‘virtual’  shelves

Chelsea Dog Collar

Come on you blues!!

Who knew there’d be so many Chelsea fans in the States?

but you’re in luck if you love a Scottie.

For those of you worried that I spent loads of money on a cat tree which will sit sadly, bereft of any living thing, in a corner – worry no more.

9 week old kittens

The kittens have taken to it big time.  Although they do like climbing up the centre of the Jade Tree plant in the conservatory too.  Well, they like climbing up anything really – as kittens do.  Also the ‘Ungrateful Baggage’ mentioned in an earlier post who was showing no interest, has managed to get herself into the very highest basket where the kittens can’t quite yet reach.  She sits there with a regal and self satisfied air which is what cats do.

Another week and he’ll be up there.

(Note the thing that had feathers to start with denuded and hanging limply from the top level)

Have you suddenly come to the realisation that there are things you wanted to do for Christmas that aren’t going to happen now?

It’s Official, No Longer Any Doubt, Lock Me Up and Throw Away the Key.

Yes, now that we’re a 6 cat family, I’ve gone and bought a humungus cat tree.  I know.  I am probably now spoken about as the local crazy cat lady.

Luckily we have a conservatory, complete with cat flap, so we don’t actually have to share our living space with it.  Although, it’s rather handsome in my opinion, so I wouldn’t be too upset but I suspect I would be swiftly voted down if I suggested any such thing.
Multi Cat TreeCats being cats, you will notice that it is void of life.

Ungrateful sod number 2 busily cramming his bulk into a tiny cat bed and ignoring the luxury accommodation just installed.

The other two fully growns are not even in evidence.

However, it was much appreciated by the kittens when Mr. T. was putting it together in the lounge.  I have recently taken to bringing them upstairs for terrifying  socialisation sessions with the big cats and the dogs.  They can’t really manage to get into it on their own but, with a helping hand, they enjoyed being way above the dogs’ questing noses and, after batting the hanging toys around for at least an hour, had a little nap in the igloo shaped bed.

Kittens

Yuki was quite taken with the feathered pom pom and, at times, unknowingly, wore it as a hat.

She’s looking a bit more like a kitten and less like a gremlin x guinea pig now isn’t she?

Anyway, I’m off to put yet another online order in with Zooplus (the pet food supplier I use and very good they are too) as I seem to keep running out of cat food.

I wouldn’t mind, but I’m really a ‘dog person’.
