The Captain and Friday
When I am in the workshop, Friday is my usual companion cat. She demands a big love fit at first, but if she gets that she is willing to peacefully sit in my second chair. I have a cat copilot. If The Captain gets to the spot first, Friday will depart in a huff. Friday says I should have no other cats before her. If Friday is in the chair first, The Captain will carefully squeeze in next to her and snuggle. Thus, half the time I have two, snuggly, cat copilots. It is really nice.

The other night in the workshop, my two snuggle kitties did this:

The Captain and Friday.
Video was a requirement to capture this sweet moment.
They are my most constant workshop cat companions, although The Captain prefers short visits with a lot of window watching, while Friday is a die-hard PEST who must have attention or she’ll manage to tangle herself in cords and pull an iron onto her head.

Same video on YouTube.

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.

Sunny and warm winter days require leaving the door open as often as possible so the cats may soak up the sunshine.

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.
