New Furry Pal, part 2.

I’ve had Dolly for a day and a half so far.  She is so much fun.  It is great to learn new things about her.  I love to see her learning all about my house.

I took my first 2 pictures of her.  Dolly Pics 002 Dolly Pics 001

She has taken to sitting on the top of my chair.  She watches me while I’m on the internet or doing anything on the computer.  She has decided it’s fun to dance across the keyboard.  I can always use cat help!


New Furry Pal

I’ve had ferrets for the last 19 years.  We have had 13 of the little rounders in that time.  Our last one, Annie died in early August.  She was almost 9 years old.  She was a happy old gal.  We missed her very much.

My husband asked me if I wanted to get a kitten?  I was surprised because I thought he was allergic to cats and dogs.  I told him no because he was allergic to cats and dogs.  He promptly told me that he was only allergic to dogs!  I have been looking for a suitable kitty ever since.

I wanted an older cat.  Kittens get adopted first.  The older cats may never get adopted.  I wanted a rescue cat.  My family has been rescuing unwanted cats and dogs for half of my life.  They truly do make the best pets.

When you rescue an animal; they become your best pal for life.  I feel sorry for people that don’t understand this.  Our cat was named Dolly Madison by the shelter.  We just kept the name.  Dolly seems to fit her quite well.

I wasn’t sure what kind of cat I would get.  I looked at all of them and Dolly was rubbing my hand through the cage.  She’s about 2 years old.  She is a calico cat.

I asked the lady to please open the cage to see if she still liked me.  Dolly leaned out of the cage and put her front feet on my chest and hugged me!  She rubbed her face across mine.  I knew she was going to be the kitty for me.

She loves to talk.  I have to see if she’s ok when she gets quiet!  She wants you to love her all day.  Snuggle cats are really the best of all cats!

Dolly has decided that the back of my chair is the perfect place to perch and sleep.  She is quite a cat.

I’ve had Dolly for about 20 hours now.  It’s been the best 20 hours in a long time!

You should consider shelter animals when you need a new pal.  You will never regret it.  Just ask Dolly!

Break Time

It’s been a long week .  I have a couple of blogging 201 and writing 101 lesson to do.  I’m going to let them wait for a little while.

I’m looking for a hat patterns to go with a pink cowl that I just finished.  It was quick and so much fun to make.  I found a hat that I liked, but the brim is crocheted but made to look like a knitted piece.  I just can’t seem to get the hang of it.  I’ll keep working on it or find a brim that works for me.

I’ve been looking at patterns. I found some really nice sweaters.  I found 3 blocks from a Debbie Bliss Advent Blanket knit along.  There was 3 blocks on  I’m not sure if there are more than 3 blocks to the blanket or not.  I’ll check back in a week and see if anymore blocks have been added.

I looked on and found the last 2 pdfs for the blanket.  She has all 5 parts on her site.

I am looking for things to make this winter.  I like to have a couple of projects lined up.

That’s all I have for today.  Take care all.

Writing 101, Inspired by Social Media

Writing 101, Day 5

Inspired by Social Media

I’ve tried to insert the tweet into my blog.  It wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped. But it was fun.  I’ve never tried to add social media to my blog or put my blog into social media, before.  I will have to see how I can use this oftener and a lot better.

This image is of a city at night.  I call them Nigh Cities.  They take on a life of their own.  Every city is a thing of beauty after the sun goes down.  The street lights, building lights, and car lights all make it sparkle.   All the ugliness of a city disappears then.  I love cities at night.
