Introducing...Cat! Yup, that’s his name!
He was a stray that moved in with us about three years ago. We were never a hundred percent sure that he would stay so we never gave him a hundred percent permanent name. Don’t let that fool you though, Cat aka Keet aka Da Cheet aka Quiche is a spoilt brat and much, much loved.
He has a habit of sitting on, in front of or all over whatever you happen to be working on at the time! It makes for interesting quilting when a fluffy (and often damp) cat sits on your fabric!
We have also caught him on the computer keyboard, in the wash basket, in a guitar case and a filing cabinet. Most bizarrely, I found him sleeping on the kitchen counter, on a plate of food I had covered with a dishcloth and put aside for my son! Nothing is safe with cat around!!
|Cat Behaving Badly|
Despite his bad behaviour, he is a constant source of inspiration to my patterns, particularly Beth’s Cats and Fat Cat.
Just recently, another stray looking for a home has joined us...Fattyboom-boom. My son picked the name because Fatty is a rather chubby character with a HUGE head!! While he is not quite at home with us yet, he’s definitely meowed his way into our hearts.
Hope you enjoyed this peek into my life and inspiration.
