Rare Sighting

Just a quick share today.

Our three cats rarely get along enough to all three be in the same room together.  Two yes,  three no. 

But shockingly,  once in a great while we find them all on the bed together. 

Today is the closest I’ve ever seen them:

The gray is PsychoKitty,  the tuxedo is Penny,  and the patched tabby is Pixie.

My Cats

Just a quick post to share a few photos of my furkids. The gray furkid is PsychoKitty, our 12 1/2 year old. The black and white is Penelope, our 2 year old. The calico/tabby is Pixie, our 9 month old.

Occasionally, the three of them get along, but it’s rare to catch even 2 of them cuddled up.

Where Did I Go?

I’m still here! Still working a lot of hours and dealing with extra stress at work so I haven’t crocheted much at all other than a special project, which cannot be shown yet.

Our new kitty has come home and we decided on the name Pixie. She is so affectionate. I think she would love it if we could hold her 20 hours a day. If she’s not playing, she’s curled up with/on one of us. Pixie does not have any fear of people coming to the house either. That’s definitely a benefit of her being such a cute kitty that spent her first months at a wonderful loving rescue center. They gave her a lot of attention and got her used to people being around all the time.

The first few days were a bit rough with Pixie and Penny. Penny gets very jealous of me. When I get home from work, I have to give Penny attention first or else she’ll spend the next couple hours smacking Pixie and hissing at her. As long as Penny gets attention first, then she’s mostly fine with Pixie. 🙂

PsychoKitty is very happy with Pixie, because now Penny plays with Pixie and they both leave Psycho alone, just as she prefers!

 

Just wanted to give you an update and let ya’ll know that I’m still alive, still around, just still working hard!

Cat Adoption (not quite crafts, but she’s still little and an orphan!)

I’m working a lot of overtime still plus I’m working on a super secret crochet project, so I haven’t had anything new to post lately. I’d like to apologize to my readers for leaving you with nothing new to read here the last week or so!

Since I can’t post a picture of my super secret crochet project yet, instead I’ll share something else with you. Meet the soon-to-be newest addition to our home! We are adopting this sweet little baby from a local Rescue shelter called Paradise Animal Rescue.  They are in desperate need of donations in order to stay open and keep rescuing lost and abandoned animals so if you feel like checking them out and making a donation, I know they would really appreciate it, and so would I!  They do not put animals to sleep just because they have no room like some shelters do. Instead they just find/make more room. They have a few cats that have called Paradise their home for several years now. Please consider donating to help keep a roof over those poor animals heads.

Isn’t she just adorable?!?! How could I resist? She’s still too tiny to come home, so we are waiting for her to grow up just a little bit more. She’s definitely the runt of the litter, her brothers are with her at the shelter and they are much much bigger than her. Even her feet are super tiny! Unless she has a major growth spurt when she’s going through her “teenage” years, I suspect she’s going to stay a tiny cat.

She is a dilute calico, which I guess means she has more than just calico markings (I originally thought it meant she had pale calico coloring). She also has some silver/black tiger stripes (tabby?) and one front leg is actually orange tiger striped. If she’s laying on one side, she looks like a calico baby. If she’s laying on the other, she looks like a black/silver tiger striped baby!

The hardest part so far…has been thinking of names. We’ve tossed around, and tossed out, several names so far. Right now we are deciding between Bitsy, Lily, and Pixie. I’m starting to lean toward Pixie more because she is so tiny, she has that pixie face, and because our other two cats names also start with the letter P (PsychoKitty and Penelope).

Does she look like a Pixie to you? How about Bitsy? Lily? Any other names come to mind when you look at that sweet face?
