A very hungry cat!

First, let me share that Laura from Appleberry Cottage won my rug hooking pattern that I'm passing along. Congratulations Laura, I hope you like hooking the design as much as I have. 

On to the hungry beast!  Shadow has figured out that the cat food is stored in this metal can.  I love the can, picked it up at an auction - it has a cool bail handle.  I did apply the label to the front - it's all about the prices of molasses.

My husband is the first one downstairs in the morning and often he finds the food dish in this sad, sad state....oops someone forgot to feed them before we went to bed! You'd think with 5 people in this house someone could remember them!
My husband says if Shadow doesn't get his attention with this trick the crazy cat will hop down and get in the way making sure to "steer" Dad over to the dish!
We have a weekend with 2 cross country races and 2 baseball games.  Hope you all have a great weekend. 


  1. Congratulations, Laura!! Happy hooking! And, oh, Ann...your Shadow is picture precious....LOVE that little fur ball....If he came to live at my house, I'd make sure his bowl was always full! ;o) Such a fluff ball! Have a safe and happy weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  2. Good Morning, Ann,
    Your cat is just beautiful. How does she think you are going to get into that bucket to actually feed her?! Our are pretty persistent in the morning too.

    Enjoy the Holiday Weekend. ~Natalie

  3. HI Ann,
    Have a great weekend, I have to work today, but will have time for some R&R on Sun. and Mon. Our sweet big orange cat will not let us alone in the AM until she has been sufficiently petted, held and fed!
    Have a great weekend.
