Sleepy Leo and Another Offer

Leo is recovering more every day. He's now fighting and running when it's medicine time, which I take as a good sign because he's no longer lethargic! He's snuggling and sleeping a lot still, also good for recovering from being sick, but I've seen him start to play too! And he gets quite excited when he sees his sisters start to romp and chase each other like he wants to get back in on the action, but maybe not quite yet..

When I'm not trying to give him that awful bubblegum flavored medicine, he's been quite clingy and cuddly with me. I tried to get a picture, but of course he was laying almost in my face.. But you can see that he's quite a peaceful sleeper, no more wheezing, and he's content to block his mommy from playing Farmville 2.

Thank you, all of you, for your continued support, purrs and prayers for my sweet boy. I'm just so happy that he's recovering so well as I was very worried. I'm so glad he wants to snooze on me that I don't even mind my crops dying.


I hope you don't get tired of me posting about the FUNdraiser on every post. I know that some people only visit once in a while and I don't want them to miss out!

Winnie's Wish is in need of the donations you are sending, so I don't feel bad about continuing to post. The only thing more needed than funds is adoptions! So please, share our fundraiser, but also share the adoptable kitties!

A minimum donation of $20 US gets you a cozy kitty bed or sleeping mat with your choice of nip or vine or nothing sprinkled on it! Every bit above postage and a small materials cost goes directly to Winnie's wish! Depending on how the final postage and paypal cuts pan out, that's between a minimum of $12 to $15 a bed to the kitties!

I have been working a little bit on another bed project and I want to see what you all think. I found a pattern to crochet some adorable little kitty beds and have made a few up. If anyone is interested I would be more than glad to take special orders of whatever color bed you might like. I believe I can offer these at the same $20 US as the Cozy Kitty beds and of course every bit over cost would go to Winnie's Wish as well.
As they would be special ordered, it will take a bit more time to get them out as I will make them after they are requested.

Let me show you what they look like, and these three could go right now.

This one is a maroon-y red and blue bed. I can make any two colors you want. These are double layered and the bottom is the same as the sides. The sides are stuffed for a nice round bolster but the sides are not that high.
This already made up maroon and blue is a little smaller than the others because I made it first and was testing the size. It would be perfect for a kitten or two or maybe a small kitty.

The picture does not do this Bright Mix variegated color justice! My shiny black table kind of reflected and made the colors look a little odd.. I think it looks like taffy colors!
The side view here shows you how the sides are not very big. But it's more than a mat and I've seen beds with short sides that kitties love.

This color, also not done justice, is called Macaw after, I assume, the bright blue parrot. I think it's beautiful, but then I am partial to blue myself, lol!
See the far side where it looks shiny and darker? That's closer to the true color of this one.

Glitter is a large kitty, the daughter of a Main Coon looking kitty, and she sat in one of these beds. She mostly fit and if I'd let her, I think she could have curled into a ball inside it and fit for the most part, maybe not her tail since she doesn't wrap it when she sleeps but prefers to let it hang.

I did measure them, but forgot where I wrote it down! I know they are about as wide as the other beds, so maybe around 15/16 inches across?  I will measure again and update this later!

Anyway, if anyone is interested, please email me at anniclan AT aol DOT com.
Like I said, these three are ready to go, but I am basically offering them as special orders
to the color(s) of your choice! (think team colors maybe? Match a room?)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thank you again for caring about my sweet Leo!

Fighting an running when it is medicine-time is probly a good sign, but we sadly know that sometimes the medicine is still needed.

We have been following Leo's illness and have had him in our thoughts. Our Mama is overwhelmed with work right now so comments have been sparse! We are so happy to hear he is on the mend :) Our Mama will write your Mama about the beds.
