It's all about CATTITUDE blog hop 28 29 Oct 2011 - day two

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Its All About Cattitude blog hop day two hosted  by Barbara.

If you have arrived here from Jamie's blog then your on the right track to carry on but if youve come across my blog from bloggerland and wish to hop along then please start back HERE.

This blog hop  is all about cats, cat awareness and National Cat Day so are my day two projects on the cats in my life.

My first layout today is of the other black four legged furry friend who shares my life - yesterday was about Gypsy so today its Lucky's turn. Lucky arrived in our garden about 5 years ago and was there every day morning, noon and night. We assumed he was lost as maybe new to the neighbourhood. We tried all we could to find his owners and eventually did. They lived 3 streets behind us. We took him home daily but he always returned. Some days it was so cold and wet that we felt so sorry for him so took him in and Jim spent the night with him on a sleeping bag. Then one night a knock at the door found his owner looking for him. He wasnt with us that time but the owner said well if he does turn up again, keep him or dump him as hes no longer welcome. OMG you can image my disgust so what  else could we do ... we cant imagine life without lucky now as he has well and truly made him self part of our family.

The next layout is of my mum and dads new cat Bobby. Aint he a cutie! Bobby is a rescue cat that mum and dad got from the SSPCA - that stands for Scottish Society for Protection and Cruetly to Animals  - its the scottish version of the RSPCA. Both myself, Jim plus my mum and dad regularly donate to this worthwhile cause as they have a cat & dog re housing program and need all the money they can get - hence them wishing to adopt a cat and now Bobby shares our lives. I also donate cards regularly to them to raise funds. The World Cardmaking day blog hop i held lately, i dontated 100 cards. Now on to what Bobby looks like.

My next project is a simple pussy cat card that i had created for a neighbours birthday earlier this year.

My last project for today  is a cat stamped candle.  I have used a penny black cat stamp which i stamped onto tissue paper and coloured with copic markers. Cut it out neat to the edge of the stamp and then sat it on the candle which heating it with the heat gun to melt the tissue into the candle.

Well i hope you like my projects for today and yesterday and can leave me some comments as i love to read what you think of my creations.  Barbara has fabby blog candy on offer so be sure to hop to all the blogs in the line up and leave comments to be eligible to win.
