My two quilting cats, Brownie and Goldie, turn 13 years old this week!
They were rescue kittens from the same litter...though you would never know they were sisters since they would much rather hang out with the dog than with each other. They both love to play in the fabric scraps...surf on the blocks, and generally hang out with the quilts.
They take turns overseeing work in the quilting room as they don't even like to be in the same room as one another! Brownie is the one who likes to steal strips of fabric and small blocks for her own stash behind the sofa....so if a block count is off I know exactly where to go!
When ever I hear of folks talk about getting a pet I feel honor-bound to remind them that it can be a long term responsibility. A responsibility that in my own case I hope goes no for a long long time to come.
