More on Cat Quilts.

Firstly, let me show the pussy cats in question (requested by GoldAnne):


This is Minnie and she's a very delicate little lady. She's quite aloof and only gives affection on her terms. She likes a very gentle touch and lashings of cream and tuna. She's a bit naughty sometimes and breaks into food packets to eat the contents. A.K.A Minnie Winnie Moochie Pig.

Here we have Chicken, he's the baby of the bunch. he's very vocal and talks to me all the time. He's a real character and he's SO affectionate. If I look him in the eye he starts purring loudly! You can throw him about, drape him over your shoulders and carry him like a baby and he loves it. My mate Bry caught him when he was a wee ferrel kitten and in real danger of dying. He was born late in the year and the farmer's wife said she'd lost wild kittens before in the cold weather. You'd think the silly woman would round them all up and get them neutered at the Cats protection league or something wouldn't you? Anyway, we've caught five kittens from that farm so far. Chicken for me, then I went and caught a kitten for Auntie's Babs and Mo and then I think Bry had three? A.K.A Chicky Chick Chick Chick.





And lastly this is my big hunka furry love Arthur. He's so beautiful, look at that pretty nose! He's absolutely huge and makes me feel like I own a dog! He's always there. When I was going through chemo he kept me company for months as I languished in my pit. He wakes me at night by biting my nose if he wants love. He's so fat that his belly swings to and from when he walks. He just can't get enough love. A.K.A Aaaaaaaaaarfeeeeeeer.

As Babs says, it's so difficult to capture the essence of a cat so I shan't even try! I have decided to go with an abstract theme which will probably turn out quite grown up. Maybe I will capture the essence (rather than the likeness) by the time I have finished? I will go away now and do some preliminary sketches and maybe blog the results a bit later?

How can any one say that cats are cruel and evil??? I love my three to bits, each with it's very own character. Cats are... well cats! Some are stupid, some are very clever, some are clowns. Some are so laid back that they almost topple off the edge of the world, but all are such a comfort and so full of love. Yours Sindie, are superb and very photogenic!

Arthur always seems to be at home, lounging somewhere, Minnie is the explorer and creature catcher, and Chicken can usually be found in the garden playing with Minnie's catches,or with his feet in the air.
All scrumptious cats!!

Oh they are so adorable :O) Chicken, not surprisingly, is so much like Sukie in temperament. She is constantly talking loudly (usually quite happily to herself, which makes me chuckle) and is soooo loving it can be a pain. She even climbs on me on the toilet!!!! I can find no peace from her purring and face rubs ha ha!

Oh Sindie, love the pics of your cats. They are all gorgeous and I sooooo want to give Chicken a cuddle. We have a white Siamese that loves being carried round like a baby and likes sitting on shoulders, though your poor shoulders do turn into a flesh pincushion! Might pop some pics of our cats on my blog, as I've no beary news to put there as yet!
Hugs, Sarah

Sarah said...

Hmmmm, I think your Arthur is a bit more svelte than my Ellie! You have to brace yourself for a hernia when you pick her up. Can you imagine how embarrasing it would be 'How did you do it?', 'Oh, I picked up my cat'.
Hugs (again!) Sarah x

Just realised. Your Chicken must have stolen poor Mitzi's voice at birth!
