Over at The Creative Cat, the amazingly multi-talented and very thoughtful Bernadette wrote a beautiful post on Saturday about Quint and his artistry. Check it out and let her know what you think. And if you will, please check out her gorgeous artwork and animal-inspired merchandise. Wow! So many things there would make wonderful gifts, not only now, but at any time of year. Thank you, Bernadette!

Thank you for all your good thoughts, prayers, and good wishes last week for Sunny and her test results. They worked!
Sunny was happy and frisky all weekend, and we’re happy too, after receiving news that her removed fluid cyst and underlying mass that had formed along her spine was benign, nothing more than a sweat pore that had gone bonkers. Her stitches come out today and she has nothing more, vet visit-wise, until her yearly check up next year. Nothing more to do other than to grow back that big patch of shaved fur on her back. That and to keep trying to goad Miss Newton into playing chase.
Speaking of Miss Newton…
… there is one little orange girl here who is on Santa’s naughty list. What ever happened to the yeow-ly, but sweet dilute ginger girl we knew? Miss Newton has spent the past few months jumping up to places she’s known for years she’s not supposed to go, and Dad seems to constantly be yelling at her to stay down… for all the good that does…
… and she keeps egging both Tessa and Quint into play-fights that turn into games of chase that turn way too rough.
Before you say, well, Quint can defend himself; he now has a big scratch under one eye, and certainly, Tessa can easily fend off petite Miss Newton, you should know that a certain Danger Cat a.k.a. Tessa has somehow grown into a big, plush, lovey-dovey pussycat lately. Must have permanently given up her bannister surfing lessons.
Aww, Mom! Don’t tell ’em that!
So, we’re going to have to rethink Christmas gifts for Miss Newton this year, and we told her so, to which she presented us her thoughts on the matter.
