Miss Puny Puss & Pets on Quilts

I thought I might take a moment and introduce my quilting pal. She is the ever lovable, Miss Puny Puss from The Spencer Ranch in beautiful Etna, CA.  Her Highness is part Absynian, and thinks she is the cat's meow. She is named Puny Puss because she was the runt of her litter, and even has a kink in the end of her tale from being squished in Mommy's tummy.

I am finishing a quilt for daughter, Amber. Guess who is helping me get it all together? Miss Puny Puss is a pest! Could she possibly think she's napping with friends? Who knows what goes on in a cat's brain, which happens to be the same size as a horse. (scary thought)

 I made the mistake of keeping kitty treats upstairs in my quilting studio... She thinks it a grand idea, I think it a grand nuisance! But, she needs the pampering. Miss Puny Puss is an old girl now, 16! She doesn't bring as many lizards or birds into the house anymore. She prefers to be waited on... give her nice juicy raw chicken, shrimp, or fish. She begs with such dignity.

She always seems to be right where I want to work... cutting area, sewing table, ironing board. But, now I've solved my problem... I found an old pillow that one of my first grade students gave her years ago. Will she crawl on it to sleep??? You've got to be kidding! What planet are you from? Since when did any cat do what we want them to do? :-)

  1. What a sweetie! I bet you are glad she doesn't bring lizards into the house anymore! I bet Miss Puny Puss crawled right up on the old pillow once you put the camera away!

  3. She's wonderful. That first picture she looks so regal and laying on the quilt she does look like she wants to be one of the cats. Beautiful, thank you.

  4. Miss Puny Puss is sew sophisticated! I always wanted an Aby, but decided they are too "busy", so Annabella the Ragdoll is perfect. I'll bet Miss Puny Puss is fun to have around :-)

  21. I almost thought that was a kitten in the middle of the quilt! Great idea. Miss Puny probably does think she's among friends on that quilt. :)

  31. I didn't know a kitten could get a kinked tail that way. What a special girl you have, cat treats in the quilt studio made me smile. I thought of going that at one time, but they never made it there...

  32. she is so regal in that first photo :)

  33. Typical kitty, fur sure. She knows how to find just the right fabric to compliment her, of course!
