What????  A cat ornament???

While I generally regard myself as a “dog person”, I had cats growing up and I have a lot of friends that own some adorable felines.  Also when I spotted this little guy on Pinterest, I could resist his cuteness.

The dogs aren’t sure what to make of this.  They’ll tell you all about it at the end of the post.

016a865a9e4d09aaf92809a021e1e3f577fa7e75eaI used light gray, dark gray and light tan felt and embroidery floss with a little bit of polyester fiberfill for stuffing.  I found these Christmas tree buttons that I’ve had for decades and I thought they looked good on these guys.  I used a running stitch on the light gray guy and a blanket stitch on the dark gray and the light tan kitties.

Here are some closeups.

Item #44 – Read Pride and Prejudice.

I know I’m already committed to reading 24 books with Quest46, but I wanted to add this one in.  I’ve watched the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice about 1,000 times and can quote actual lines from the show/book, but I’ve never actually read the book.  Time I changed that.


Question of the Day:  Do you leave the traditional ‘milk and cookies’ out for Santa or some other treat?

Woody:  You know, I still really haven’t recovered from Ellie and Mindy coming to stay.
Mindy:  I think I could be a really good friend to a cat.
Ellie:  As long as the cat stays away from my food, I’m cool.

  1. We did every year until our Jennifer passed away, it was wonderful having someone who believed in Santa for so many years.

  2. Michelle says:

    YOU’VE NEVER READ PRIDE AND PREJUDICE? It is my FAVORITE book besides Harry Potter I’ve read it a thousand times. I love that adaptation though.

    Also, while I never believed in Santa, my parents wanted my little brother to believe, so we left out milk and cookies while he was a little kid. But not for years and years now.

  3. Pam Robertson says:

    I guess it’s cute for a cat!
    We are kind of beyond Santa treat leaving in our house, but we used to for sure!

  4. Cathy Powell says:

    We have grandchildren now so it is back to milk and cookies!

  5. Neil says:

    It is a cute ornament. When I was younger we did leave milk and cookies out for Santa.

  6. Kathy Ryan says:

    We actually have a little stand that Santa’s “goodies” go on – yes, traditional milk and cookies!

I look forward to your thoughts
