Cats & Quilts - a match made in heaven... (except maybe those stubborn little clouds of fur that latch on to the fabric!)

Kitty Quote of the Day

I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul. - Jean Cocteau

Tracee's Treasures

Again my treasure is a find from the op shop, in this instance Good Sammy's in Subiaco. They seem to get a lot of the more vintage linen, older china etc.

I love this old dressing table set, suitable enough for me, a kitty trio & it takes pride of place on a little old wooden shelf unit at the front door filled with kitty things.

It's in perfect condition & fairly neat on the back. Just what any quiltkitty needs.

I thought I would share the following that came in by email to me last week. It applies greatly in my household especially Rule 9 when you have an elderly furchild. Rule 10 scares the hell out of me but I'll be there sobbing my heart out when the time comes. How could you not after 19+ years of love, loyalty & great times.


1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful. 
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.
5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.
10 On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.

~Take a moment today to thank GOD for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them. Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters. 

Happy stitching
