Cats vs. dogs



For me the question is easy. I like a few dogs but LOVE cats. I actually have been a cat person all my life, and we have never had dog in our family (really!) but quite some cats, and that makes all the difference, I think.



Our oldest (and latest) cat lived 16 years and was a part of the family. No, he was the king of the family, really. And after him gone we have lived pet free, partly because of work situations and moving houses, but also as it would be really hard to replace him.



I keep dreaming of a cat, though, and will probably have one in a family later on. In the meanwhile I keep crafting cats (and an odd dog, too) and admiring fellow bloggers cat-pictures. Better than nothing I´d say.

That pink cat-bag of mine made it into this pretty kitty-treasury, I hope you´ll enjoy it too. Thank you so much Paula from CottageRose Creations!

Purr-fect day to you from sunny Finland!

P.S. They did it, yippee!

I too am a cat person Mia, although I did have a sausage dog when I was little.Since our marriage (29years soon!) we have had 3 cats; Diggory (lived 1983-1994), Meg (1994-2008) and now our sweet Billy who is nearly 2! He is currently sitting behind the computer screen as I type and will soon be shouting for his dinner-LOL! I LOVE both these bags though Mia. Well done you! Fond greetings from a cooler England (it was 32oc for last few days but cooler today), Love Jane X

Dear Jane,

Many,many kisses to Billy from me! And it´s terribly (in good sense, I think?) hot here too, it´s been around +30c and same for the rest of the week if not even warmer, huh. But we must enjoy while it lasts I guess? We´ll soon be chatting about Christmas ;)

Sunshine from Finland (I definitely can give up some of it!)again!

Yours,
Mia

I'm a cat person too (but I think you already knew that!) I have one very round little cat at the moment, she is rather old but still young at heart!

Must say though, I do rather like the little dog on the bag with his little red bird - very cute!

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
