Mimi on Her Own Quilt

I decided to enter CalGal's Pets on Quilts. It isn't difficult to find a photo to use because every quilt I own has had a cat on it. So I decided on this photo of Mimi on her own quilt. The fabric in it is mostly cats with a couple of dog pieces thrown in. She knows it's hers and she sleeps on it every day.
She also does her daily exercises on it.


And she keeps herself white and spotless.
But my absolute favourite photo is this one - when she did the ironing for me. Such a helpful kitty! I once asked her why cats like to sit on the quilts we make. She is very philosophical and has great insight into all things. You can read her answer here.

Mimi's conversations are great!! :)

She is a very wise kitty! I am glad I have a houseful of cats to add love to the quilts I make!

She is such a pretty white too... my daughter recently fostered a white kitten that I would have loved to adopt but luckily we found him a good home! hehe

Thank you for sharing your great pics

I love Mimi on her quilt, and her little lounge act is very cute. By the way do you think she would like to come over and do my ironing LOL! Enjoy the weekend.

Mimi's lovely, and doesn't she talk a lot of sense? Thanks for giving me a good laugh.

your quilting helper is so cute, I see she has to put her stamp of approval on all steps of the quilting process.

Yvette said...

Oh Hetty, was a smart kitty Mimi is and beautiful to boot. I love her story and I understand better now why our fur babies love our quilts. I must ask Trudy about that.

Your Mimi is so beautiful and a great model for your lovely quilts. I love how she takes such good care of herself on her quilt, and that she works hard helping you quilt. Just delightful. Thanks so much for sharing. Love it!

Such a cute picture.
Hetty, I haven't been able to keep up with the Block Party. In fact - I don't think I ever got around to doing a single block. I feel like I'm cheating - could you remove my link from the side bar? I don't think I should be listed since I'm not participating. Sometimes I think I can do a lot more than I really can.

Thanks! You have a great blog!

Jodie said...

Aw, so cute! I think I should make my cats a quilt to sleep on too - great idea :)

Opal said...

Mimi is so beautiful! And so is her quilt. Makes me wish I could quilt for the boys. Only I don't think they'd appreciate my efforts like a girl cat would. ;-)

Such a cute quilt show! Haven't seen any horses on quilts yet - I believe that is potential prize group - would make a novel photo for sure!

Nina-Marie said...

I have an all white cat too (except her eyes are blue!!) Yours is so pretty. Just to warn you - mine is 21 and still very active!!

Stormy Days said...

Wonderful and so beautiful. I have two all white cats and the hair seems to be constantly trying to form new cats.

Kim said...

Your cat is so adorable. My cats are always trying to help too and oh the cat hair. It's alot of working keeping up.

Nancy Sue said...

Mimi looks like a good a ironer (I love that picture). She definitely puts the love in.

Janet said...

Too cute! I think white cats are extra special.

I love your conversation to find why cats sleep on the quilts with Mimi. Very creative.
I wish my Tika Kitty would do my ironing - he loooks just like Mimi! People call him a girl all the time - poor guy, I think its the pink ears.
