Git Yer Cats!

I fished out a small WIP and finished it at work this week. It was fun to finish something, even though it is such a small project. It's called "The Cat's Meow" and it's by the Drawn Thread. If anyone would like to have the chart, leave your name in the comments, and I'll be happy to drop it in the mail to you.

Speaking of cats, I spied a face on Needles in My Sleeve which looked awfully reminiscent of my kitty, Little Friend. We called her that because she used to come visit our backyard, where we put out food for any kitty who seems to be in need (which is how we've wound up with six kitties). Seems a former neighbor moved away and abandoned Little Friend. We bought her a heated dog house for the winter, brushed her hair and fed her. One day, though, Little Friend disappeared. We were worried, because she'd always stuck close to our yard (we hadn't brought her indoors because we already had four in residence). Several days later we found her under the tarp on the woodpile, nearly dead, with horrible wounds on her back feet. We took her to the vet, and 3 weeks later, we had a new cat--a cat minus six of her back toes. You wouldn't know it to look at her though; her balance is fine, and her long hair covers her feet.

This is Scratchy. I'd so much like to find a home for Scratchy. He was similarly abandoned, and we have been feeding him in the yard also. But we can't bring him inside, although he'd desperately like to come (he comes to the window and looks inside even after a meal). He's cuddly, and being part Siamese, is a tad talky, but not loud. He seems so wistful. We've got two other boy kitties, who, despite being neutered, have territory issues, and we don't think we can introduce a third boy to the mix. So, does anyone want to adopt Scratchy? We'll pay to have him neutered, bathed and groomed and all his shots, as well as a health check. And as long as you're somewhere within a reasonable drive (eastern seaboard), I'll even bring him to you.

Anyone? Anyone? Something tells me I'll have an easier time giving away the chart.

I love the kitty sampler. Great stitching. Kitty pics are nice too.
