A Gift For You

How did I not notice this before????

The ever-astute Connie (otherwise known as the fabulous author of Tails From The Foster Kittens) pointed out that Garnet's awesome orange belly spots are the in the shape of a heart.

Can't unsee it now, can you? I know that I can't. Garnet is saving up her love and her heart for a very special still-unknown family. We're lucky she's letting us get a sneak peek at it. Consider it her gift to you.


We have another gift in today's post. Last month, I received an amazing gift from my dear friend Wendy. Wendy's husband and my husband were stationed in Germany at the same time in the late 1990s. We lived in the same stairwell apartment building on Ramstein Air Base. Our sons were born four days apart from each other. (I may or may not still be carrying a grudge that her son was born on my due date and I had to wait for an extra four days, but that's an entirely different story).

Wendy has a love of sewing, while her husband is a fantastic woodworker. They have left military life behind and have a great little business on the side. This little project started as a bed for American Girl dolls:

But then her cat completely took over.

I showed Wendy a photo of what our original foster kitty Tommy used to do in the authentic American Girl doll beds.

An idea was born and the prototype arrived in my house as a very special gift last month.

It's now a cat bed, complete with cat-themed bedding and catnip pillows.

To say they love it would be an understatement.

Why, yes... I was singing "No More Monkeys Jumping On The Bed" when I took this photo. Why do you ask?

I'm pretty sure this is the last time a pillow was ever on that bed.

Belle has redecorated again.

Wendy's fabulous creation is available in her Etsy story by following this link:  They build the beds as they are ordered, so you know that your kitty's bed will be made especially for them :)

  1. OMC, that heart on her. Newton just swooned.

  2. That heart is adorable!! And OMG those befs. Hope Ivy doesnt see this or we know what the Princess will want for her birthday.

  3. That is so awesome! I love it! Cat people are the fantastickest people ever!


  4. Firstly the belly pictures are adorable - so cute! Secondly the bed is gorgeous - do you think they'd ship to Canada?

  5. Love the heart and love the beds! Win-win!

  6. what is seen can not be unseen :) I can't believe you didn't see that.

    super cute bed!! A smidge out of my price range, but uber adorable! I went to look at the etsy page and facebook then felt the need to use the picture to advertise it to me again .. lol

  7. Sorry about the delay in answer to the Shipping Question. I have had an sinus infection all week. Anyway shipping wise, the item is really bulky, One of the reasons we don't like to ship these out of the USA is that it gets really Expensive to ship. It cost over $30 to ship the item to Kelly and out of the US it would probably cost close to the price of the bed itself just to ship it.

  8. We *heart* you too, Garnet!
