Helpful Fur

Today, I am helpful ginger tom.  I am helping mummy with her new quilt.  I am road testing it for snugglability.

Then I thought I'd write the blog, too, but it didn't work on this old thing?

Back to the quilt...

  4. Aaaaaaah,very cute...and pretty!

  5. What a vry useful cat, he is certainly good at road testing your quilt! And so handsome too

  6. The quilt must be lovely and soft, looks like your cat loves it :) She doesn't want you to part with it.

    All things nice...

  7. such a good and helpful cat!

  8. So sweet! I have a little black and white cat, Minnie, she likes to help me too, when she's not trying to trip me over that is! Ada :)

  9. Very handsome cat! I love your old typewriter. There is one in the charity shop in my village and I look at it longingly every time I go in there but I know I don't really have the space for it. I might have a proper look next time if it's still there. It's very tempting!

  10. Jacky's looking better today ...isn't he a beautiful boy and so kind to help out.

  11. You'd think mum would make a quilt in your colours, now, wouldn't you? ;-)

  12. Ahh, you are very kind to offer help, even with the vintage typing, but truly, choosing to settle on that lovely quilt was the way to go.

    (It compliments your coloring so well.)


  13. Hello!
    I too am a domestic furnishings trying out cat. Sadly, I am expected to do this as an amateur - no pay is forthcoming, apart from the odd pouch of posh dinner. But then I was found dumped on a hillside in the pouring rain when I weighed only 3 oz, so I'm lucky to have a home to try out furnishings in at all.
    Have you noticed that people who like vintage things believe in cat comfort? Lucky us,
    Blue a.k.a. Boo Boo a.k.a. B.... Boots!
