Meet my pets.
Gidget is about 13. We got her as a kitten when a friend found her roaming the neighborhood.
She is extremely shy and spends most of her days hiding in the master bedroom. In the evening, she comes downstairs and lately she claims the messy coffee table as her napping spot. She has very specific places where we are allowed to pet her, so I feel honored when she comes into my sewing room and hops onto my chair for some attention!
The middle child is Casey. Another friend found her on the street. We think she was about 2 years old when we got her, so she might be around 8 now.
(sorry for the dark photo, my iPad doesn’t have a flash) We thought she was a Maine coon because of her size, but the vet decided she is a Brown Mackerel Tabby. She demands petting and has a funny habit of butting her head into your arm or leg to get attention.
My daughter wanted a kitten, so three years ago we visited the shelter and brought home Amy as a 6-week-old:
She is a grey tabby and very much people-oriented. She is also very vocal, meowing to find us if she wakes up and no one is in the room. She adopted one of my daughter’s stuffed animals, so it is very funny to find that little bear dropped in various places…at night it’s in the kitchen and by morning we find it at the top of the stairs.
Every quilt and knitting project has a bit of cat hair in my house!
