Cat Post

There's not much that will jolt me awake in the morning, but Pete found something. Try, "Hey, guess who just pulled himself out of the pool?"

ohmygoodness!!! Edgar!! Went swimming? At 5am? Good grief!!! Pete said he noticed the water sloshing, but didn't think much of it. Then he saw the trail. It comes from the deep end of the pool, folks.

I immediately insisted, "Bring him in the house!" as I went to grab a towel. "Seriously?" Areyoukiddingme? Of course seriously!! Temperatures dropped dramatically overnight, and the pool was pretty cold to begin with. I don't want him to catch pneumonia!!

Edgar doesn't seem fazed in the least. Just a bit wet. After 20 minutes of clean-up, he was begging to go outside again. sigh. I guess a cat's gotta do what a cat's gotta do.

He doesn't seem any worse for wear. Here he is, with Charlie and Hecate, beginning the daily catnap. It's 7:30am, and 52 degrees out there. The only thing disturbing them is the flash of the camera. Sleep well, my kitties!

My week has been filled with this quilt. Because it's so large/heavy, I can only put 2-3 hours in each day, so I'm still working on the in-the-ditch stitching. I have one more loop to do, and then it will be feathers, feathers, everywhere. I'm looking forward to them!

Quilt by Barbara Brown, 2009

That's all for now folks!

That is an awesome quilt!!!

The only time I ever had a cat fall in the pool was when he was standing next to it during an earthquake. I think the earth trembling a bit (it wasn't a big earthquake) made him jump and he landed in the pool. Edgar did FALL in didn't he? Or did he dive?

I love the cat story. I want to know too - did he fall or jump?
