I Paid It Forward. And Received More!

I owed three pay-it-forward (PIF) gifts to some blogger friends. Regina (bitnbyaquiltingbug), Beth (the quilt ladies book collection) and Linda (hand quilting nana) should receive their gifts in the next couple of days if the post office hasn't already delivered them.

In the past couple of weeks, I've been lucky enough to be the recipient of even more PIF gifts.

This darling candle mat was made by Cathy (Cat in the Sewing Room). I wasn't allowed to post a picture of it for awhile because her other recipients are out-of-town. Momcat was lucky enough to receive this one when she and Cathy spent a much-needed girls' day out together.  Say "Hi" to Smudge for me, Cathy!

Next I received this from Shellie (Shell Creations).

Naturally, when Momcat opened the envelope I assumed it was something for me. I love yarn and thread, and I eagerly started to think of all kinds of cool things I could do with this lacy crocheted piece.  I started dragging it away. And then, you won't believe what happened......

....are you ready?

Momcat tapped my nose and said, "NO! NO! NO! Piwacket, that bookmark belongs to me. We don't play with gorgeous handmade pieces like this!"

Well, excuuuuuuuse me! 

You know, that kind of abuse just made me so upset I had to take it out on someone. Butch was in the crow's nest of the kitty condo. MY crow's nest. Time to teach him a lesson about usurping the queen.

As everyone knows who has ever eaten a chocolate Easter bunny, it's best to start with the ears. Butch's taste just like chicken.

Once I'm done with my snack, I have SIX PIFs to create. Stay-tuned for the announcement and a reminder of the rules. Link back to this post and encourage your friends to visit here often. 

Testily yours,

OMG, I had a cat that used to "kick the dog" (his feline sister) every time we would yell at him for something. Fortunately Red and Buster get along ok. They do like to chew each others' body parts though, and a little butt sniff can start a war...

Love your blog and life from the cat's perspective. Thanks for th chuckles tonight.
