Another Cat

I decided to sew together another cat. ( I needed something to keep the mice under control.) I wanted a cat whose front legs were not so tightly attached as the last. My husband calls this the "tube steak" cat.

Bunnies Doing What They Do Best

It has been too long since I have posted here. Fortunately or not, it was not because I didn't have anything to post. Things have been busy here. Since the last post, I have been invaded by big fuzzy jumpy rodents that have been multiplying everytime I turn around. I have heard that they are good at that. The little fellow was the first one to show up. He seemed harmless enough, but there must be a devious mind behind that innocent grin. He invited friends over to party the moment I wasn't looking. ( Rupert has been feeling put out because he hasn't received an invitation yet.)

First, he needed a cute pink girl for entertainment in order to entice his more rowdy buddies. She looks like she is in a bit of a shock. The reasons may be the next rabbit, who shocked me a little as well.

This fellow looks like trouble. He has been staring at me for over two weeks with those crazed pink eyes, and it is starting to give me the shivers.

I think this jack rabbit has been spending a little too much time in someone's garden and not enough time dodging cars on the highway.

I now wonder how many more rabbits are going to show up before I have to quietly get rid of some of them. There will probably be more before Easter arrives. If I'm lucky, a few of them will leave me some colorful eggs and chocolate.

Its All Gone to the Birds

Here is some of the birds that have come home to roost at my house lately. First is this little songbird. He is not too flashy, but he has a nice soft twill to his voice.
These to fluffy yellow chicks came from the same nest though you might not know it. One obviously got to the bird feed sooner than the other.
This little guy graced our home for only a short time before flying off to a place more to his liking. He now has his own space where he can survey all the comings and goings at a friend's house. He likes the fact that he is out of reach of children and cats.

p.s. No socks were harmed in the creation of these feathered creatures.
