A Pet/Quilt Photo Contest! That sounded like fun to me. Over at Lily Pad Quilting you can enter the contest too (Until August 9, 2012). There are a lot of great prizes too! So without delay I present......(drum roll please)......
Emperor Mao Mao
Mao Mao was an abandoned kitten that found refuge in the bushes in front of our house. We found him dehydrated, hungry, a few fleas, an ear fungus, and very very scared. We (Me and my two little ones) couldn't get him to come out of the bushes. He wanted to but he was just to scared. So, we found a yoohoo (chocolate milk) and started meowing. Every time we would meow, he would meow back and come a little closer. Finally, after half an hour of meowing he came close enough to the edge of the bushes to drink some yoohoo and I caught him. He didn't fight; it was as if he was happy that we finally caught him.
We took him to the Vet and got him all cleaned up and now he is one of the family. I never knew I was a cat person, but this little guy is sweet and playful and FULL of sweet Mischief. He loves that I sew and quilt or at least he makes himself right at home among my strings, fabric, rulers, and baskets. Sometimes, it is IMPOSSIBLE to do any kind of sewing because he attacks everything! haha
I am very sorry for Mao Mao that he had such a rough start in life, but we are very blessed that he found his way to our front door! And I have to admit, I like being his Mommy. I like that I'm the one he comes to when he's sleepy, he meows at me for his morning milk, and he tries to sleep on my head at night; he makes me think I'm a very good mommy indeed. ;)
|sometimes getting pictures of pets aren't easy.|
|Come on Mao Mao, just look at mommy...PLEASE!|
|I see you Mommy, don't touch my quilt.|
|I've got claws and I'm not afraid to use them. ;)|
|And of course Mao Mao has his very own quilt. ;)|
