welcome , farewell and congratulations .

I really hadn't forgotten about drawing a winner from the last post.

I've been a bit preoccupied with normal family life.
Our dear old male cat named Flower in the photo below
had been very sick and died last week .

I adored this cranky old thing and miss him terribly .
I even miss him stealing the cat food and making a mess .
My daughter went to work the other day and just so happened  to
find this little ginger cat that was living in a shed at the back
of one the pubs and was supposedly feral.

I'm beginning to have my doubts that it was really feral as she
is the most laid back kitten and has just fitted in here so easily .
In keeping with the weird cat names here this little girl has been named Wally.
                               We also have another female cat named Stinky Ralph because
well just because she lets off a big stink .

Anyway I had better let you know who won the copy of Zoom
it was Sas , hooray !
would you please contact me at clarebower AT with your details.

If you are disappointed you didn't win you can find my patterns here .

Thanks to everyone else for flying over xx

Clare, I'm very sorry to hear about Flower. It's hard when you lose a long-time friend like that. It sounds like Wally is settling in well, I hope he is around to keep you company for a very long time.

Sorry to hear about Flower. It's always hard to love a pet. They are just one of the family. I love the names you give your cats. I have chickens and we have had a couple of roosters. The father one we called Red (as in Red Rooster) and the son we called KFC!

Well that's quite a week Clare!! Sorry to hear of Flowers passing... our pets become such a big part of family life and it is really sad when we lose them.

How lovely though that you can give Wally a new home.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

Sorry to hear about Flower. I know how you feel. Toffy spent several weeks looking for our older cat Tiger once he died in Janaury but he seems ok now and is back to his usual self. Love the name!

Hi Clare Big hugs to you on the loss of Flower. As a fellow cat lover I know the hole that losing a beloved member of the family is like.
