While I understand that most other areas in our hemisphere have been enjoying spring for months, we’re still trying to maintain traction in Cheyenne.

These roses are blooming in the sunlight.

The cats like it, too.

The door was only open long enough to get the mail and when I turned back around to close it, the two smallest cats had already staked their claim and passed out happily in the warmth.

And this is what happens when you put a seat heating pad on the loveseat.

You can see that Oz doesn’t really want to share.


I love the way they tuck their paws when they sleep like that.


Even Moxie will share for this kind of warmth.

Friday is fascinated by my box of stuffing.
Friday in stuffing.
To save money and fuss, I ordered a ten pound box of the Poly-Fil when I saw it on sale at Amazon. Figured that would last a while. I have finally used enough of it that I can get the box closed again when I’m done. You know how stuffing expands when not being pressurized. Now I pull the box over to my chair and pull out reasonable size tufts with my long hemostats and put them right into the Scrappy Cats. Friday finds this irresistibly appealing. Her eyes get black and she stalks the stuffing tufts. This time she couldn’t contain herself and jumped into the box. Her paws began sinking into the fluff, so she moved to the box flap and attempted to pull out paw-sized bits of polyester. It seems as though she simultaneously wants to touch it and doesn’t want it to touch her.

Moxie, Friday, Oz, The Captain
Moxie, Friday, Oz, and The Captain all napping on the fat chair. Nora, of course, was napping on the bed by herself.

In the meantime, my workshop progress has traversed sideways instead of forward. The photo session failed – they are so shiny! I must pop out the box. My first print run was a messy, messy, sticky disaster (new ink) and my second was merely full of rejects. Couldn’t even work on the quilt because I was out of batting. I know, how does that happen?! Apparently, I’ve been making a few quilts lately and used it up.

This weekend will set me right.

I’m supposed to be sharing photos of the quilt I completed over the weekend, but they suck. My white balance was off, or I left a filter on my lens, or something. Again, I was in a hurry in the morning. I didn’t look at them, just uploaded and got in the car. They suck, so I will have to try again when I have time to be at home during daylight hours, which will be tomorrow at least.

In the meantime, enjoy these photos of the cats and their new cat tower.
Cats on their play tower.
They like it. There is almost always a cat in one of the top two sections.

Cat nap party on the blanket pile.
Napping cats.

Slick is performing blanket maintenance (electric blankets) before the summer storage of blankets and created a large pile on the loveseat. The cats loved it, as you can see. Doesn’t a nap party sound great? I don’t get invited to those. Probably because they don’t exist.

Also, yes, we have a lot of blankets. We have dedicated sofa blankets, too. They are fuzzy and the cats’ favorites. In the winter, having a fuzzy blanket over you on the sofa, with a warm cat curled up in said blanket at your side is simply marvelous.

When I am busy in the workshop, the cats don’t get enough attention, but they don’t want to leave, either.

Last week got busy, so I’ll be playing catch up this week. Lots to share.

This morning, The Captain was excited to find the practice quilt had slid off the loveseat enough to provide a hiding spot for a cat. He shimmied his way into the spot, but his sister Friday was watching him the whole time.

The Captain was convinced it would be a good blind, but Friday wouldn’t let him get away with it. She attacked him through the quilt a couple times, and he tried to ignore her, but the quilt finally moved enough to not cover him any more.
