This is a series of pictures I took of a squirrel who seems to have come courting one of my kitties. He sits in the tree outside the kitchen window, watching Katie. She often goes to the window to look out at him, too. (Sorry I don't have a picture of her looking out the window - I'll keep trying.) Their eyes meet and there's some sort of facination going on here.
He's such a cute squirrel and, yes, he is a he. lol He just sits or lays on that limb and looks in the window. Sometimes he's there for half an hour or more. That's a long time for squirrels who seem to be always on the go.
I'm not sure he liked having his picture taken, though. He was giving me "the look."
Katie has a history of cross-species crushes. For a while she was enamoured of a little lizard that spent time outside the kitchen window. When he was there she would come and get me and show me that he was there. She would fuss and fuss, looking at him and then looking at me. I think she wanted me to bring him inside. I don't know if she understood my explanation that lizards don't belong in the house. At least she hasn't asked that the squirrel come inside yet. lol

I finished my first disappearing nine-patch rag quilt last night and got it listed today on both ebay and etsy. It turned out even better than I expected. What do you think? It measures 47" x 47" and has a nice brushed denim on the back so you can use it as a quilt or a picnic blanket. I'm definitely going to try this style again. Maybe with assorted rose prints?

By the way, I just finished a new mini tote with button embellishments. I'll try to get a picture up tomorrow. I was looking at it when I finished and it just didn't look, well, finished! I thought and thought and then it came to me - BUTTONS!! I got out my big button stash and managed to find enough white buttons to add that final touch. Kinda cute if I do say so myself. Well, I'll let you be the judge tomorrow!

Got the results on Goldie's blood work and everything is normal so we are going ahead with the radiograph of her jaw on Wednesday. Hope oral surgery isn't required.
Doesn't he have the prettiest eyes?
No vet call yesterday regarding Goldie's blood work. No surprise there. They will call the minute I leave the house. Never fails!! lol
Thought I'd post a few more cute cat pics since people seem to like that sort of thing. Catch ya'll later!!
These two are Barney and Charlie. Can you tell they are brothers? They have a third brother, Twitty (formerly known as Junior), who is also black and white. They aren't always this loving; you know how sibling rivalry is.
