Midnight and Halloween... Mosaic Monday



She doesn't like to have her picture taken (can you tell!)




We have a twenty some lb. (she doesn't like her real weight exposed to the public)cat. She has the name of Midnight as that is the time I first saw her. She is jet black with the most beautiful green eyes. She arrived on our doorstep quite pregnant and had been deserted. She decided we were OK and put all her trust in us. We cared for her and she became part of the family. Her way of thanking us was to present us with nine (YES 9) kittens some weeks later. I must tell you it was a zoo around here with, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 9 kittens, and a cockateil ( who also found us, but that's another story, about the bird). The vet just shook his head when I brought all the kittens and Midnight in for their little surgeries. I was then able to adopt them out knowing that they would not be adding to the feline population. We still have Midnight or should I say she still has us. We love her a lot. I made this quilt in her honor. I do believe she posed for it. LOL
Happy Halloween everyone!
Drop over to Mary's Little Red House to see all the wonderful mosaics.

Thanks again Mary for hosting Mosaic Monday!

Your kitty Midnight is lovely!..,

Just thought I'd pop by after reading your lovely comment from awhile ago re., my Autumn pictures; I've recently posted some "Autumns Jewels" photos today, on my The Plumed Pen blog..,

Perhaps you'd like to pop by soon and have a wee peek at my little corner of the blogging world; also my dear, I adore your blog and the banner is stunning!

I'm glad I revisited my past comments so that I could rediscover you!

What a wonderful story. Your mosaic is one of the cutest I've ever seen. I love all the colors and the cat poses.

Candy said...

You'll have to catch her in a better mood maybe napping. Just like you did for the quilt...so cute.
Thanks for coming by to see me playing with blocks. Some say I have blocks in my head and you might as well know I also run with scissors!!!
Having fun on a rainy day ;-)

P.S What lovely words you left me!! You (and Teddy) are SPECIAL!! xx

storyteller said...

Wow ... Midnight and Ms Kitty DO look like they could be related, though those marvelous BLUE eyes are certainly unique. I wonder if she has some Siamese in her? Ms Kitty looks reddish brown in the sunshine but has yellow eyes. I'm told she might have some Burmise heritage but she's a feral cat who found ME years ago too so I don't really know. Thanks for your visit to Small Reflections. I do love your marvelous Halloween quilt ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

I just lost my dear black cat a few weeks ago. Mine was a little anti social too. But loved me. Thanks for sharing oh and I loved the little quilt.
Have a Blessed Day,

Thank goodness for people like you willing to have nine kitties fixed! Thank goodness for people like you who take in the unwanted, and love them. And nurture them. And give them good lives. Thank goodness.

That's such a cool story about Midnight and her kittens. We have two cats and one doesn't mind having her picture taken but the other one does. They definitely have very different personalities.

Anne~fiona and twig said...

Awww, Midnight is a doll. What a difference from MY diva kitty, she loves to sneak into my pics!
Best of luck in my giveaway!
Anne

Mary said...

Awww she's a real cutie, and your quilt is wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing your talent at MM. :)

It is hard to photograph a cat, I have been trying for weeks, they just move to much, and a black one like ours is harder I think. My Pennywinkel found us as well, or we found her. anyhow she now owns us. It is nice that you had the kittens to enjoy for a while. They do make the house pretty crazy.
Your so very creative with a needle, just beautiful work! Did you do your banner? Lovely.
Happy week ahead!
