I'll Be Back!

After a looooong break from Etsy, I'll be back soon with a whole new name, look and product. I'm narrowing down the needle felting, adding in some stitched stuff and just taking it in the primitive direction. Can't wait to get back in the swing of things!!

Our View Today







 
Fishing with the family today. Waiting for fish to bite ever so patiently!

Crazy Cat Lady? Part Two

Ok folks here is part two. I'm just figuring out how to use the blogger app on my iPhone so please bear with me!

    As her pregnancy commenced we got to know Belle more. She grew to really love and trust us. She was pampered. Belly rubs and kitten food. I loved to sit in the chair with her stretched out on a pillow in my lap feeling those babies moving. So sweet! I thought I felt 4 distinct bumps. Belle is so tiny I don't know if her little bod could have handled more! At the very end she looked like a little donkey and we started  affectionately calling her Belly. We made her a basket in the house she could relax or give birth in.

   One morning she was being extra super lovey and clingy. My husband said "Within 24 hours we'll have kittens." I had to take my daughter to school and when I got back 45 minutes later I couldn't find Belly. I knew she was having those kittens and she was under the house. She came out that evening and we could see she had delivered. We had no way to see them. We gave her food and water, she cleaned herself and returned under the house. She was a good mom and stayed with her babes leaving only to eat and drink.

   Two weeks later, on a school day, she was hanging around the front door. I asked my daughter to let Belly in and to our surprise she had a kitten in her mouth. She moved those sweet babies in to my closet! I had the basket on hand and as she brought Kittens in I popped them into the basket.  There were 4 little balls of fluff.

Crazy Cat Lady? Part One

   When we moved, we inherited a skinny little tabby  I decided to call Belle. She was at our new home hanging with my husband and getting to know him while he renovated. She lived on the porch as an outdoor kitty and she was fixed.  Our other three cats, Smokey, Oreo and Samoa (MoMo) were still cozied up at the old house as indoor kitties.

  "I guess one more would be ok. They are all going outdoors."

   Belle is sweet and super loving though she has that independent outdoor kitty attitude. This girl can take care of herself!  We moved Smoke, Oreo and MoMo to the new house as free range kitties and Belle made sure those kitty boys knew who the boss was. MoMo and Belle are cool but don't  hang out much.

   All the kitties were thriving as inside/outside cats. Belle kept on getting healthier and shinier. "See what a little extra TLC will do!"  We had a few stray toms that would come up in the evenings and partake in the food bowl feast. We wouldn't begrudge them that. One would hang out with Belle on the old picnic table in the sunshine. "Isn't that so cute!!" Then he stopped coming around. Belle chased him off.  Belle was prego. I told my husband, he did not want to believe me!

 "But she's been spayed!"

   I insisted. I AM a woman that's borne three children I know a baby moving around in a pregnant belly when I see one.

   I suspect he didn't want to think about vet bills for 4+ cats. Me neither.

 
   Part 2 and kitten cuteness coming soon!
