Thanks, Mary!

Look at this adorable hand crafted credit card holder I got in 
the mail today from Mary at Corners of My Life.

Now, how perfect is this?
Gray...birds.....and the inside has a
feather pattern on the coordinating fabric.

Thank you, Mary!
I love it and it was so sweet of you to think of me!
If you want to know how she makes them, she has
instructions on her blog!

I Spy With My Little Eye

A great big dragonfly!

Around Here, Lately. The Feline Edition.

Thursday, The Mister came home and said he had made
arrangements to bring a kitten home the next day.
I had to laugh.  See....it's not just me!
He works at our local hospital and a surgeon's wife happened
to be there and was talking about a kitten that showed up at her
house.  She had been feeding it but couldn't keep it because they travel
months at a time and she was afraid their big dog would eat it.
The Mister offered to take it and made arrangements for the next day.
I have to say I was pretty excited!
We haven't had a kitten in a long time!
But this kitty that came here was pretty much grown up....
and he has some issues.  My heart sank when I saw him.
I immediately noticed his eyes.
Cloudy, one is infected.  Blind....or nearly.
He seemed off his balance and didn't meow.

I've made a call to the vet for an appointment, so we're waiting on  
 that.  I was fortunate enough to have Vetropolycin to put in his infected eye.  
And of course food and water were inhaled. :)
I spent Friday helping the poor thing walk around.
He was banging into everything.  So sad.  I had to take him
back to the litter box and make sure he could find the food bowls.

He's made great improvements every day!
His eyes still look awful, but he has good balance now, walks pretty
fast through the house for not having much eyesight,
and he purrs incredibly loud!
I've put a post up on our area's Lost Pet Page on Facebook, just
 in case someone is looking for him.  He's belonged to someone at
 one time....probably fairly recently.  He's neutered and domesticated.
So, we shall see what happens....if he's claimed...
and what the vet says.

In case anyone is wondering about Sterling....
he seems to be avoiding fully adopting us!  He's a man about
town and very independent. haha.   I only see him once every couple
of weeks.  Sometimes he lounges on our back porch with the others.
He loves a scratch on the head and is quite charming, but
hasn't shown interest in staying.  A few weeks ago I got up in the
middle of the night and he was in the kitchen eating!
He obviously knows how to use the pet door!
I told The Mister that this winter will be the true test.
He might just decide that living in our warm home is better than
shivering in the snow.  But then he will have to abide by house
rules!  Such big decisions for a little man. hahaha.

Still, look at that face!

If any of you local people know of someone that lost a black
cat in the Centerville (not Cedarville) area, have them get
in touch with me.  We've named him Pepper while he's here.
