This is the first year I've participated in the "Pets on Parade" blog hop.
My old cat, Ms Murphy really didn't love having her photo taken,
or even spending time in my quilt cave with me.
She had her own agenda, and it frequently didn't involve people! LOL!!
She passed away on Mother's day night.
That left us with a very quiet house and a hole in our hearts,
especially my hubby, the only one she adored.
We were petless for a month, and then it was time to bring new life in the house.
In came these 2 little bundles of joy.
Making their way to their new BFF, as soon as they walked in the door.
Yes, they are named for a couple of our favorite Alaska places
and we had to switch their collars once we found out what they were.
Boys really don't like pink, I'm told!
They had a rough start. They were barn cats that had been socialized, but...
came with worms, ear mites and runny eyes that turned into rip roaring respiratory issues.
This brother sister team, do love each other though, and have grown to love everyone else around.
Are they helpful with my sewing?
Well, ask this one who had to be cut out of the cone of thread,
he managed to tangle himself in, as I was sewing.
Help with binding???
Not so much.
If the stare down doesn't work, I'll just bite the thread as you stitch.
Checking it out...
and knowing he wants it to stop.
Only to find that these quilt things, are pretty comfy after all!
If you want to see the top of this quilt...
I shared it Friday in the Island Batik Great Outdoors Blog hop
Quilting is tough now...
One won't let me sit down to sew...
And the other tells me, I'm not going to do any long arming either.
What is a quilter to do???????
This is our adventures with Kenai and Denali.
They are getting better every day, and my vet bills are growing.
But I think we are finally on top of it all!
Now just teaching them to love quilting...
I don't think anti-biotics will help there!
The things we do, for the pets we love.
