Pets On Quilts Show

I am so excited!  Today is the Pets on Quilts Show at Lily Pad Quilting!  I join in the party every year(with seven cats I still have not used them all!)
You can join the party at this link Quilt Show I am entering the Cats On Quilt category!
Today Tater is going to be the star of the show!  She has been through so much in her short life!  Someone dumped a pregnant cat at my friends house who is highly allergic to cats.  The mom cat had two kittens, one died and then she abandoned Tater.
My friend's little girl tried to take care of her by herself for six weeks out in the cold weather.  We went to my friend's house and when I saw this poor kitten I had to take her home!  She had fleas, worms, and her poor ears had "An aural (ear) haematoma is a collection of blood similar to a large blood blister which results from a rupture of a blood vessel in the ear. The collection of blood usually occurs between the skin and cartilage on the inner side of the ear." which has left her ears scarred.  
Isn't this the saddest kitten you ever saw in your life?

She is now very spoiled and happy!  She still has a "sad look" but is very happy!  I think the sad look is because her whiskers droop.  My other cats have taught her how to use the litter box, what "treats" means, and how to play.  Most importantly they have taught her what love is and what it is like to have family.
The voting opens up in ten days, I hope you will vote for Tater!  If you want to enter the contest, read the rules at this link! 
What kind of pets do you have?

Sweet, sweet Tater Tot! Pet her for me.

Deborah Hamilton said...

She's so cute, and I'm glad you have taken such good care of her. I also have a calico cat.

What a wonderful person you are for rescuing and taking care of this kitty. I liked your post.

Tater is such a beautiful cat/kitten. I'm so glad you rescued her and I bet she is too. I have a beautiful tuxedo cat that I rescued about 7 years ago. He and his sister were camping out in my mother's back yard and when the weather got colder, didn't appear to have anywhere to go. He is now very happily spoiled and I am very lucky to have found him. My brother adopted his sister and now my sister has 2 of her kittens.

What a good friend to animals you are to bring Tater home.....you can certainly tell she is happy now! Do any of your other kitties have problems with you bringing new ones into the house? I am headed to vote!
