Cats & Crochet

by greenrabbitdesigns

Cats and crochet can be difficult sometimes!!!!

This is Charlies take on wool winding!!!! As you can see from the blurry photos he put a lot of effort into the task!

I have to say it is a much better pastime than running around the garden with a frog in his mouth with me running after him in my dressing gown, which was what happened one morning last week!!!! I did manage to rescue the frog which had by now been passed to Jessie and was playing dead but thankfully wasn’t. I put the poor frog in a box to recover from the shock and then my husband took him to live in a much nicer place without cats!!! The joys of sharing the world with cats!! I just don’t do the hunting thing very well, rabbits don’t do horrible things like that!

He’s a clever boy that Charlie though, he rubs against my legs, looks into my face with those eyes and like a fool I forgive him ~ again!!!

Happy Wednesday everyone, we have sun ~ yay!!! 🙂

So glad to hear I’m not the only one with a cat who goes after frogs! Can’t say I’ve had to run after him in a dressing gown (yet!) but cats do make for joyful living, don’t they!!! Pet Charlie from me and happy crocheting! xo Karen

Oh Vivienne you do make me laugh – chasing round the garden in your dressing gown.
It seems that I’m becoming a mad cat lady. Violet’s dad found the secret stash of cat food I’d hid away in a cupboard and then this morning when he came downstairs after his shower, he found Pusskins curled up asleep on one of my old towels on his office chair. Oh dear – I’m really gonna be in trouble tonight when he gets home.
This will make you laugh. I was fixing myself a tuna sarnie for my lunch, when all of a sudden I had the most shocking fright when Pusskins sank his claws into the backs of my legs. I screamed and Pusskins jumped across to the other side of the kitchen in fright. I think it’s going to take me a while to learn the ways of cats.
Glad to hear that you’ve got some sun. We have too – yippee!

My aunts cat used to hunt baby bunnies 🙁 We’d find the ears and tails all lined up on the window sill…It was very strange.

Doesn’t stop me wanting one though! Shame we have neither the money or the space for the moment 🙁 Maybe sometime in the future 🙂

Charlie is so cute you could forgive him anything. He’s only doing what comes naturally with the frog although I’m glad I didn’t have to deal with it!

Vivienne, How adorable……I think I’d have to forgive him pretty quickly.

Happy Int’l Rabbit Day to you!!

Happy Wednesday and rest of the week.

Charlie just wanted to help! One of my hens once ate a frog right in front of me. It was such a shock! (For me and the frog!) I am glad you had some sun today. We started off with cornflower blue sky but now the temperature is dropping. Time to get out the woolies I think! x

I’m glad my cat isn’t much of a hunter after reading this. She only catches things if we go on holiday and leave her at home with the neighbours feeding her (3 dead mice under the fridge one year!) – she goes to the cattery mostly, thank goodness!
I’m also glad she isn’t particularly interested in wool – toys of choice are tape measures (why?) and shiny curling ribbon that’s use to wrap around presents – she’s been known to chew it off the Christmas presents under the tree.
Charlie is a beautiful cat.

Hi Vivienne, Oh, Charlie being a cat! Cats will be Cats! He is awfully cute….I can see why you forgive and forget! Hope your yarn is OK.
Thanks Vivienne for your comments on my blog❤

What a lovely boy he is with his shining black coat! Sadly hunting is what young cats do and there’s not much you can do to stop them. Ours don’t bother now that they are old aged pensioners luckily! Glad you got help with your crochet – cats are such time wasters aren’t they but enjoy him the crochet will wait!

Hi Vivienne, I am taking a short break in the post holiday washing etc to try to catch up on a few of my fave blogs ;0) Loved the blocks Fee made you. I too have that Ladybird book ( and many many more too !) They were such a part of my childhood. Charlie’s post made me smile, I’m afraid hunting goes with the cat… our Billy is pretty good but did catch a bird the other day, most of the time he just watches. I can see what you mean how like Blackie he is…they are so similar aren’t they? Blackie was here waiting for our return and he and Billy have been around all day today. Nearly the weekend, enjoy it when we get there,

Aaaaw, isn’t he sweet, tangled in wool! Nice to hear the frog has moved home, but like you say, one look in those lovely eyes and all is well again!
Have a good weekend, sounds like you’ve had rain in your neck of the woods so hope the sun comes through tomorrow. x

My favorite post, Vivienne, this is just cutest ever! I know how it’s with cats sometimes, they really want to participate everything (lay on newspaper when you try to read, for example)… Thank you so much for sharing!

Have a great weekend soon, dear friend! And many kisses to Charlie!
