    Life doesn’t get better because you ignore reality. It gets better when you accept reality and learn from your mistakes.

    Very cute. I am not allowed pets either at my apt that I moved to almost 2 years ago.

    How cute! Friend of mine bought a condo and she had 2 small yorkies. The HOA restricted pets. She had a choice to put hers back on market or have someone else care for her furbabies. She chose to run for the board on the HOA and won. She entered a motion to revise the restrictions and within 2 months after the revision over 55 owners were registering their babies. The morale at those condos has changed immensely. Moral of the story check the HOA restrictions because pets of all kinds can be banned.

    Way to go, to your friend. It reminds me that my grandmother told me eons ago, that if nobody wanted make me a president of their company, I should start my own and become president. That was back in the early 50's and it amazes me that she was really ahead of her time.

    Regarding the cats: They are so adorable. You are my kind of gal, obviously if you can't get your own fur-babies, you can make your own. This shows that there is more than one way to skin a cat. LOL Of course, I don't know why anyone would want to skin a cat.

    beautiful cats, no furballs too. great solution.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I love the black and white one.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Oh!!! How CUTE!

    I need to make one of these...thank you for posting a link to the pattern! I love the sleepy eyes.

    DH's gran loooves cats but she is bedridden and the only cat in the house is ancient and has become too weak and can't get up on to the bed (and gets stuck and has "accidents" if you PUT her up there, so no more kitty on the bed). I think Gran would love a cheerfully-colored stuffed kitty to keep her company!

    I've made her a cat-themed quilt and a wall hanging of a cat chasing butterflies, so it even fits into the theme of gifts I've given her int he past.

    Any house that does not allow pets (other then for medical reasons) belongs to people I don't want to be around. My DD will love these cats for her office. She has four cats at home.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
