Pets on Quilt Show 2013

Welcome to my cat house!  I do not have a picture of all of my cats on here, only six!  Yes, that's right six cats!  I have three more! Although Precious is in the back, but you really can't see him.  This top picture will be my official entry in the cats on quilts category (But I'm sure you could guess that the category was not dogs on quilts!)   The link to vote is at the end of the blog post!
Muffin and Tiger (brothers)
  Would you believe I got this double wedding ring quilt at a thrift store and it was sold for .65¢ a pound!  I paid way less than $5 for it!  It was hand quilted.
Muffin and Tiger came to us as kittens and have grown up together.  Muffin has a gentle soul, he is the one who always takes care of the new kittens.  Tiger is my cowardly lion, he's scared of his own shadow!
Pippi (the kitten's aunt)
This is Pippi.  I got her at about four weeks old and bottle fed her and potty trained her, it was like having a newborn in the house to take care of.    She is the friendliest cat you will ever meet and will meet you at the door wanting to be loved on!  She has also taught her awesome personality to the three kittens.
Oreo
This is Oreo, he is almost six months old.  He is very sweet and has a nice fat squishy tummy that he likes to have rubbed.


Custard
Here is Oreo's sister, Custard (named after Strawberry Shortcake's cat).  She is sweet, feminine and dainty.  She is a true Southern Belle!  She is on my grandmother's quilt, a circle upon circle quilt.  I love to just sit and look at all of the different materials on this quilt, the entire thing is hand stitched!
Tiger
I think Tiger looks pretty dapper on this quilt!

Cupcake
Here is the other sister, Cupcake.  She is very high strung!  I've never seen a cat before that moans in her sleep!  When she is awake she coos as she plays and if she wants something she has a very high pitched meow that lets you know she means business!  She is sitting on the great granny square quilt I am making for my niece.  I am doing the FMQ on my 123 year old treadle.  I was in the middle of the quilting when she jumped under there and just looked at me,  She got my attention!
Oreo and Custard
The babies were just seven weeks old when I took this picture.  They are sleeping on my Postage Stamp quilt that I made.  It has an embroidered penguin on it.
Cupcake, Oreo and Custard (sisters and brother)
Here they are on a pillow that I won, this was such a great picture of them all together.
Tiger
Tiger found a great spot on a pile of my quilts.
Custard
My favorite picture of Custard hanging out on some of my finished Scrappy Trip Along Blocks.

I hope you enjoyed meeting six of my fur babies!   The linky party for the Pets on Quilt Show opens on Sunday and the voting begins the folloing week, I hope you will come back and vote for me! I'm in MO this week looking for a house to buy, please pray that I find the perfect one that the Lord wants me to have, meanwhile hop over to Lily Pad Quilting to see all of the other great blog posts!
