I am in love!!! And my computer hates me.

You may ask with whom am I in love with!!! A little kitty boy has come into our lives. He is just adorable. He was born on the 8th of November and he is a Seal Point Ragdoll. We have had him for a week now and we have called him Puddles as Raggies do like water if they are in the mood. We tossed around a few other names; Jasper, Chester etc, but Puddles was the only one that we could all agree on. I did try to load some photos from my mobile (cell) phone today but I was not successful, however I will (steal) borrow a photo of his father from where we got him from. He has settled into our household really well, it is like he has been here forever.

I don't think that we could have chosen a better breed. They are well know for their tolerance and I don't think that any of us are sporting any scratches as yet. If he doesn't want to be held, especially by Joel or Caitlyn, and if they won't let him go he will just give them a little nip.

He has 'met' the dogs through the glass doors and windows. One night DH and I had just finished reading and turned out our lamps when we heard some hissing and spitting. Puddles had discovered that the dogs also existed on the other side of the window and sped out of our room. Once we realised what had happened we were ROFLOL, (in bed though). It was so funny. He has been a constant source of amusement for all of us, poor Puddles. I do love our kitty cuddles, he is so soft and he is a chronic purrer.

I have had three finishes in recent times. I started a little BOAF design called Soweth Sampler and completed it some time ago. I completed Faith from LHN Scripture series and CdC by Ink Circles. I can't find the USB cord for the camera and was not able to load pictures from my mobile earlier in the day. HOHUM (letting out big sigh). At the moment I am working on three designs; Bubbles from HAED, Lizzie Kates Double Flips and Desert Guardian by Character Creations. I have worked out a rotation with these and so far it is going well. Will post updates when I sort out the photo issues.

I would just like to thank everyone that drops by, I love getting your comments and reading them always puts a smile on my face. When we came back from our holidays early January there were over 1300 posts in my bloglines, and now they are down to to about 250. There hasn't been a lot of commenting as I have been doing most of the reading from my I-pod touch, and even though I love it, commenting can be a bit hit and miss at times.

Well I am going to go and get some kitty cuddles before I go to bed, stay safe everyone and I hope that you get lots of stitching done.

He's a beauty. I think he is a bi coloured raggie. Have you seen our ragdoll? I'll send you a pic if you haven't seen her yet. They are adorable but can be pests as well. They follow you everywhere and mine gets trodden on quite a lot just because she stands in the way and won't move. She is lovely though. x

That is a beautiful cat! I bet your new kitten is a doll. And isn't it insane when you come back after a hiatus and see all those blog posts waiting for you?! I've been up over 1000 too and there's just no time for commenting when you have that many posts to read :)

If Puddles looks anything like his father he's a beauty! Our Ragdoll,Clarisse, is the soul of our home. We get so much enjoyment from her. This breed make awesome pets! You finished CdC yaaay! Can't wait to see it.
You can't find your USB cord and we've lost our battery charger.
Meantime, enjoy all those new stitches!

Chiloe said...

Oh my! what a cutie ! Does yours has blue eyes as well? He can only be a good cat because he was born on my birthday and I am a good stitcher !!! LOL Hope to see some pics soon ;-)

Dee said...

Congratulations on the new addition to the family. His Dad sure is a handsome guy.

I'm sure you'll get photos of your boy soon.

Suzanne said...

Regarding your comment on my blog:


LOL Melbourne is a coastal city in central Florida. It's not quite as popular as Daytona or Cocoa Beach, but it's nice for a quiet day at the beach.

I love your kitty! I wish I was brave enough to get another. I bred siamese a number of years ago but after returning to Australia 11 years ago after a few years of living overseas, decided not to have any more pets but when I see pics like that I am very very tempted. I'd love a chocolate burmese but would take some really fast talking to DH for him to agree I think! Ho hum! Blessings!

Thank you for becoming a follower of my blog. I intend to start a blog in English but I think it has to wait until I retire.
Ow, and Puddles is a lovely cat, I can easily see why you love him.
