To forget about her bad day Chel was going to go to see a movie, but her Mom called and said there was 2 packages waiting for her at home.

Chel

"Could one be from my Secret Pal?", she wondered.

She decided to go home and find out.

Sounds to me like Chel, contrary to what she told me, was affected by incidents while in the car going to knitting lessons causing nuttiness......

(sorry ladies, this is an inside joke between she and I)

You got great stuff and it is all beautiful! Congrats!!

Wow, I only just read this. What fun! There are some beautiful yarns there! I had a cat named Sadie when I was in highschool. :teehee:

Chel
04-23-2007, 04:27 PM
:teehee:
When she was a kitten I kept her in a large cage at night because my older male kitty was so rough with her. He would smoosh her and she was soooo tiny since I found her at 2 weeks. I would only let him play with her when I was around to supervise.

Well he tried to bathe her through the bars of the cage and literally licked/chewed her whiskers off until there was nothing but little nubs left.

Thats where she got her full name:

Sadie Sophia Whiskernubbins
:roflhard:

My male is Sydney Sebastian (he is Sadies older brother from another litter)

We also have an all gray kitty-not a black or white hair on her and so silver she shimmers... Her name is Darby Olivia Gray

LOL I try to treat my animals with dignity, after all they are members of my family and I for one would be positively mortified if I woke up one day named "Frou-Frou Muffin-Butt".

04-23-2007, 04:39 PM
That reminds me of that commercial with the guy opening the door calling to his dog..."Sir Reginald Flufferntter!" or something like that....and he dog just WONT come to him...

I cant remember the product, or the actual dog name... :roflhard:

:roflhard:
I named my kitty Sadie because I was living in England at the time, and I thought it sounded like a lovely English name. She was one crazy cat...we had this textured wall paper in our living room, and she would zoom back and forth literally climbing up the walls, and just hang there at the top of the wall (right up next to the ceiling!), look around for awhile, and then zoom all over again. She was a riot, that cat!
