Kitten poses and new quilt along....

Nosey Parker is one of the cutest, busiest and most entertaining kittens we've ever had. Because she's an "only child" as far as her age goes, she's commanding a lot of our attention and makes us laugh constantly. She is growing like a weed and learning at an alarming rate, she's fearless and yet respectful when she gets hissed at by the big boys. Respectful in that she backs off, for the moment, but it's not crushing her spirit one little bit- those boys are liable to be the next victims of a drive-by at any moment. :) She's pretty fast, did I mention that? Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzoooooooom, she's here and she's gone.
She can now jump from the counter to the island to the sink. Oy. Nothing is safe from her now. Got a box or bag of food on the counter? Not for long! No sir, not with Parker on the loose. She's ravenous and demented and the little booger showed us her temper yesterday. We went to cut her nails and she wasn't ready to stop playing for 2 minutes and she got ugly with her daddy. It was actually pretty funny now because she's little, but if she keeps that up and does it when she's grown, it'll be scary.

Looks sweet and innocent, doesn't she? Ha. And when she tuckers out, she's DONE. She'll plop down just anywhere and crash, no matter if it's comfy or not.

Yesterday she figured out how to jump or scramble up onto previously "safe" places, now she's in windows and on ironing boards and cutting tables, oh man, the world is a dangerous place when you don't know from nuthin'. Thank goodness for the net, she was walking the stair rail over the staircase yesterday and I had slippery fabric on it, if that net hadn't been there, I'd have been having a stroke.

There are a few safe and warm places, though, like cuddled up with Artemis and Daddy on the sofa. Or lurking behind the broom (that needs to be used!) waiting to pounce on Sammie who is busy swimming in the water bowl.

And there's always camouflage, that can work, too.

Well, it's time for a new quilt along! This time we're all going to make zigzag quilts. These are the fabrics I think I'm going to use. This is for the foot of our bed where the cats spend a lot of time, this will be much nicer than towels that don't match the pretty bedding.

Thank you, Peggie, you're sweet to say so. It's my pleasure to share her antics, it's just hard to get a good photo of the white tornado.

Sometimes I'd really like to share her, as in send-her-to-YOUR-house sharing! lol
