feline furrrriday . . .

And a canine thrown in for good measure.

This is Merlin.  He moved to Sawyer's when we moved to the RV.  He's an outside cat.
The garage is his safety spot.  But mostly he likes being out and about.  But food and water are in the garage.
Unfortunately, so are mice.  He's not a mouser cat.  *sigh*  When James put glue traps in the garage to catch the mice that Merlin wouldn't?  Merlin ended up with glue traps stuck to his back and tail and body.  He's not the brightest cat in the world. Be sure to check out Feline Friday at Sarah Did It! :)

Here's . . . 
SAWYER!  (There was a "tah dah" that came with that pose!)

Here's Sawyer and Bear seeing eye-to-eye . . .

Here's Bear and me seeing eye-to-eye . . . 
That's one BIG dog.  And he's still a PUPPY!  Yup -- six months old.  Sheesh!

Where is Sawyer??

HERE I AM!!

Boxes still make the best toys!

Last photo -- quilters take notice -- this one is *important* to you . . . 
Cotton.  Looking good -- just sprayed so it will be ready to harvest inside the next week.  The corn crops were shot this year, but it was prime growing for cotton.  So don't you let the retailers/manufacturers blame the high fabric prices on a bad cotton crop this year!

Today is Day 5 of the Leafs Me Happy hop!  Yesterday there were some wonderful blocks -- it's all be fabulous!  Here's today's list:


Friday 5


Have a *marvelous* Friday!!   We are having a family afternoon at my favorite fall place -- Tate Farms!!!  YAY!!!

LOL on Merlin - he has better things to do than chase after mice. Bear is gorgeous - he's going to be a pony! And the photos of Sawyer always tug at my heart reminds me so much of our boy at that age.

What a fun post!!! Lots of happy smiles and furry friends :*) My favorite is the picture of you and Bear "eye to eye" - he's almost as adorable as Sawyer! (only almost though of course!)

HA - glad my Moe isn't the only idiot cat - yes, he got stuck to the glue traps too. And two cats and I have to put out traps. Bella mouses like crazy, but Moe is an ornament. Love big dogs, how sweet. And boxes will fascinate that little boy for many years.

I got a giggle out of the visual image of the cat with the glue traps stuck to him. : )

Poor Merlin - guess they all can't be brilliant ;|

Boys and dogs and boxes = a good combination!

Out here in the west, they wouldn't blame the rise of fabric prices on a bad cotton year...they'd blame it on high fuel costs to transport!

Poor Merlin!

Sawyer is so cute. Love his many faces.

Wonderful post, Denise!! Looks like life is pretty good down your way!!! The cat is cool but sounds a little dumb, the big white dog is VERY cool, Sawyer is darling and cotton - wow, now that IS cool!!!

Sawyer and Ellie are adorable, I love their smiling faces. They seem to be very interested in all things around them.

Bear is cute, too. I bet he wants to play with Sawyer.

I guess I didn't realize that Merlin was an outdoor guy. Too bad about the glue traps. Bear is HUGE as is that cute little Sawyer! Thanks for linking to Feline Friday :)
