Today is my first contribution to a new weekly blog group- Whiskers on Wednesday. I found them thru one of my Ravelry Groups, "Under the Spell of an Orange Cat" (Poppy is my Redhead) & couldn't resist the urge to spread some "cat love", since you know how goofy I am about my girls :-)
This is Dahlia, the youngest of our bouquet (all our girls are named after flowers); she was adopted from a local rescue group three years ago to be a companion to her older "sister" Poppy. The woman in charge warned us that while she was clean, healthy, & litterbox trained, she was a little too wild & high-strung to ever really be a "people cat".
Piffle. The woman knows nothing.
You can tell by her face that she's a real little character. She also sports a number of nicknames: Dilly-Dal, Dog-Cat, Pickle (as in "always getting into a"), & Boo (short for Boo-Boo Kitty). Her stories of mayham & disaster are legion, but her most endearing traits are her terminally sunny disposition, her crazy gap-tooth smile & baby "mew", & her utter devotion to "her people".
Drop by Whiskers on Wednesday to visit some of the other "Crazy Cat Ladies", or even join in yourself- Come on, you know you want to...
