Well, a few blogs back ("Sunday morning layabouts"), I posted a pic of my cousin's cat, Kuchi, laying on the cat quilt I made for her. Well, it's time for Titan, another cousin's Yorkie, to get his 3 minutes of fame...
|Titan on his doggie quilt|
My cousin just sent this top pic to me. Isn't he adorable? He's very small. I think I have another pic of him that shows his size better.
According to both cousins and a dear friend whose old dog was the first to get one of my doggie quilts, these sweet animals do seem to really like their quilts. I would be concerned that they are all just telling me this to be nice if it weren't for our own Tux (whom I also made a quilt) and who refuses to share it with the other house-hold cats. To be completely honest (although this is definitely not for Tux's ears), I made the quilt for all the cats to use and also to cover the tears in an old ottoman we have in the den. However, from the moment I put it down, Tux lay claim to it. If another cat lays on it, Tux will stand on the side of the ottoman and stare at the offending party until they finally gets the hint and leave... and then he reclaims it.
and a few outside pics:

And we finally saw one of our regular box turtles in the yard Saturday! We have about 5 or 6 that usually start showing up in May, so it seems they are running late this year. Maybe with all the rain, they decided to stay put... or if they were in or near the creek when the heavy rains came, I guess they could have got washed a long way down.
Well, got to go. Promised DH I'd make Snickerdoodles this afternoon.
