    Didn't you know it's not a REAL quilt until a cat gives it it's approval?!?!

    Cute and beautiful cat! Quilt looks pretty too!

    Oh, I KNOW they have to approve of my quilts. Just last night, my little girl had to make sure the embroidery was working on the machine. She was watching it so much, she fell asleep and I ended up having to rip all the embroidery out. UGH!

    Yes, he's a handsome boy. All 25 pounds of him!

    I wanted to tell you about a marmalade cat we had. My sister named him KiKi (y'know, faster than kitty, kitty), but my teenage brother kept calling him Stud!

    Finally one day, when she overheard John calling him; "Come here Stud, what a Stud!" and going on in that vein, she choked back snigger. He said "What!!!! Nooooooooo!" He was appalled to find out that Kiki was longer a Stud!

    And he knew our Dad was (is) a responsible Veterinarian! :lol: :lol:

    His full name is Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalani'ani'oli.
    He was an Hawaiian Prince that was just full of mischief when he was young and that's what this big boy was when he was a kitten. Who know that this little kitten that would fit in your shirt pocket would grow so big!
    We call him Kit-Kit, Kitten or Big Boy.
    He got the Kitten because when we got him, he was the kitten among the other 2 that we had.
    He is also known as "Healer Cat" because when anyone is sick/not feeling good, he curls up with them and makes them feel better.
    He's my handsome boy and I wouldn't trade him for the world. Wouldn't trade any of the cats I have ever had.

    Sure...take his side!
    I did NOT turn my back on him. He was nowhere around when I layed the quilt out. Must be his stealthiness that got him on the quilt top without me noticing him.

    My cat put her paw of approval on each quilt I make.. I agree, its not a quilt until Missy says it is. Each quilt has a touch of cat fur in it!!!

    Yes, sometimes I think I hear the cats say...suck it up! If you need help, I'll give you a straw! :)

    Yuppers! 25 pounds. He was getting urinary tract infections, which is common in male cats. We switched his food to a prescription food and that's how he gained all his weight. We are now trying to get him to lose some of it, but it's going slow. My daughter will carry him up to the 3d floor just so he gets the exercise coming down all the stairs. But, he's a good boy, don't care if he's "big boned" or not. He's mine and I love him.

    That's the kind of cat I wanted but when you take the whole family to pick out a pet; mom usually doesn't get what she wants LOL!!!!

    He's goregous :lol:

    My cats lay all over everything; quilts, scrapbook stuff, you name it - they lay on it. My female has even figured out how to lay inside my coils of reed when I weave baskets LOL :P

    You never did see my cats, did you?
    Our other 2 cohorts in crime and tell you exactly how big he is.

    The girl cat is actually telling you HOW BIG to make your next basket so she'll be able to fit into it.

    Just got an idea....what about making a basket, then a little quilt to go inside it! Bet kitty would LOVE it!! :)

    **BTW all....Shari and I are buddies, we would go to lunch and have coffee together, but she decided to leave me!!

    I know what you are saying. If any of my quilts hit a bed, floor, or any flat surface it becomes the cats. If they love it, it gives it the ultimate seal of approval. My sister says cat hair my be lucky because all her quilts contain some. Love the big orange cat. Love the quilt.

    quilts are big cat magnets!! the cat could be on the other side of the house hiding in the furthest corner, but her quilty senses know there is a quilt now on the floor or bed and she MUST be involved in this event! Missy's favourite thing is when she sees a quilt about to go on the floor she makes a run for the middle of the floor so she can hide under it! crazy cat!
