"I never thought that a short, chubby redhead was my type, but every time I look at your sweet, handsome face, I am smitten once more....."
This is my other handsome fur baby "Oscar"; 18lbs of adorable 'cat-itude'. Poor little Oscar was abandoned by his mother when he was very young, luckily for him, one of my co-worker's mother found him and rescued him. Originally we agreed to be the temporary foster home until another co-worker (who'd recently lost her own cat to Feline Leukemia) was able to take him. Fortunately for us, she changed her mind. We became instant parents to this tiny handful of fluff (he had a big voice for such a tiny mite though). He was so tiny we could fit him in a teacup. Barely 4 weeks old and ears not even properly formed, eyes still blue and just open he won our hearts. What followed next was a richly rewarding experience of 4-hourly bottle feeds, teaching our baby to go potty, what he couldn't eat, making sure he got enough sleep and play time. That was nine years ago and he's been such a wonderful part of our family. He's crazy, whacky, sometimes very naughty, but always totally adorable and I am as smitten with him today as I was 9 years ago, when I first laid eyes on his sweet little face.
This is another 'use up supplies' lo. I made the ribbon flower myself (idea from Australian Scrapbooking Ideas magazine).
Thanks for looking, your comments and feedback are truly appreciated.
