it's been a long week

I want to thank you all for the kind words and your understanding of how difficult last week was.

I'm slowly getting used to life with one less furrbaby around, and Bear seems to have stopped fretting.
Isn't it odd that the one dawg in the house seems to have noticed Oakley's absence far more than either Sophie or MissC ?
Well, no [ answering my own largely rhetorical question here ] because that is the nature of cats and dogs.

and before I move on ... did you spot the common thread in most of the photos of my ginger boy ?
Sophie's chosen path as the resident feline yarn tensioning device has been well documented. What was perhaps less well known was Oakley's long career as quilt cat.

I suppose being a "Quilt Cat" is a tough job, but someone has to take over the tradition - and she seems to not mind one bit ;-)

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving in spite of your loss.

I think the feline presence actually adds to the beauty of the quilt.

It's never a real hand crafted item until it has a healthy dose of cat hair and you know it.

So sorry for your loss.

It's amazing how big the empty space is that our furbabies leave behind.

Sorry to hear about loosing a fur baby. Hope all is well otherwise.
