Spoilt Kitty!

OK, it is official - I am a crazy cat lady and Dancer is a Very Spoilt Kitty!

Last night, I removed the baby quilt from the dining table and put it away.  A short while later, Dancer jumped on the dining table, expecting the quilt to be there, and when he realized it was no longer on the table, he walked around the table looking for it!  Then he looked at me as if to say, "What happened to my quilt?" and he lay down looking resigned to having lost his quilt.

And I felt sorry for him.

Which is why, at 3:45 a.m. this morning, I sandwiched the pieces of leftover batting I had from earlier projects between two pieces of scrap fabric from the stash and ran a couple of quick, long basting stitches to hold the fabric in place.  He sat and watched while I assembled the "quilt" and the minute I finished it, lay down on it!  It was too small for him to stretch out as he did with the other quilt, but he made himself fit.

This picture was taken a few minutes later, at 3:52 a.m.:


Spoilt Kitty on His New Quilt!
 
I guess I'll be buying another yard of quilt batting, soon!  :D

  1. Too sweet! One lucky kitty! But with your feral cats and Dancer we already figured you as a cat lady! Lol. Oh well, if the title fits. Haha!

    1. He really is one indulged kitty! I saw a tote bag at the fabric store, the other day, which said, "One cat short of crazy"; I think I shall make one with that saying for myself!

  2. HAHAHA! He is so spoiled. I thought my kittens were spoiled, Bless, but there is no way I'd make them their own quilt at 3 a.m.! He is a very lucky cat and I hope he pays you back with lots of cuddles.

    1. Ah, but you buy them things to tunnel through and carpets to play under and so forth. He's ignored the new quilt today, though - he preferred the bigger one!

  3. Yes, Dancer is one spoiled kitty. But I can't talk. We have 3 spoiled ones here. However, I'm keeping this post away from them before they get any ideas.

    1. Yes, a good idea to keep it away from them! :) Hope all is well with you.

    1. Eloise, Dancer says he much prefers the term "pampered" to "spoilt"! :)

  5. So spoilt but glad he is. Rather that then ill treatment.

    Hope you got to bed after that and were able to sleep in. You know the night shift would be perfect for you with the hours you like to keep! We did have a few people at the nursing home that preferred that shift. Some tried it and just could not do it. We all seem to gave sort of natural body rhythm.

    Hugs my friend.

    1. Yes, he is indulged in, partly because I feel sorry for him now that daughter isn't home to play with him, etc.

      I did go to sleep after that, and slept in. Yes, I think I'd do really well with a night shift! My daughter, too. We are both night owls!

      Thank you for the hugs, Sandy. I needed it.

  6. That is so cute, a personal quilt for Dancer. I can see that got his seal of approval. I always enjoyed making things for cats, including friends' cats who boarded for a week or so, after we no longer had our two. At one time I specialized in making not just toy mice, but large stuffed rats. I thought of marketing them "for the cat with ambition!"

    1. Your mice sounds cute; I'm not too sure about the large rats! LOL. Dancer gets pipe cleaners to play with, and, occasionally, an old sock with a little cat nip in the toe!

    2. I found that the cats really enjoyed something large that they could hold with their front paws and kick with their back legs! Probably an old soft toy would work just as well.

    3. I must look for an old soft toy for him. He has a knitted scarf that he drags around which is his "security blanket" (he brings it to bed at night, then, takes it to the family room when I leave the house in the mornings).

  7. Oh, I love this! I've found that my cats' interest in items decreases significantly when they are allowed to use that item -- so part of the fun is making them think that their own toys are off-limits. Cats!!

    I like that saying very much. :)

    1. Yes, he hasn't shown any interest in his "quilt" after that first day! I think he knows it is a makeshift job and he wants a "real" quilt! One that's not meant for him. ;)

    1. Yes, he is very indulged but he's cute and deserves to be spoilt! LOL. My daughter says she dreads the thought of how I'd spoil any grandchildren, when they arrive!
