Le Tent

After many months of jealously seeing pets live it up in their own custom teepees, I finally broke and we made one for the kittens. I enlisted the help of Lee for this one!

I watched a great DIY Tutorial from Pudge the Cat. Check it out here!

Cat Tent

It was super easy to make! Though a little rough around the edges (literally a fabric scrap), the boys really love it. We followed the tutorial and it was a breeze. We used dowel rods from Jo-Ann Fabrics, we had the fabric, instead of the string they suggest we used super long twist ties we had already.

I ended up using safety pins to hold back the flaps at the front, since the fabric is seersucker, it falls immediately. We definitely should have taken the stickers off the dowel rods before we tied them together, it makes it look sloppy. I also want to cover the twist ties with a hemp rope, they work well, but don’t have the look I’m going for.

Franky's ready for date night!

Overall really easy to make and if you’ve also been dreaming of your cat slumbering in a tent- DO IT! And send us pics!

Slumber party in the cat tent!

 

Baby Franklin

Franklin, our BIG baby, is a mainecoon cat. He was born on January 19th, 2015. And he is a real heartthrob <3!

We got Franklin from Bellacoons Mainecoon Cattery, in the Greater Philadelphia area. I cannot say enough about how great Bellacoons Mainecoon Cattery is, and have recommended them countless times, to families interested in Mainecoons.

Franklin was a bit of a surprise for Fred and Lilly, but also to Lee. I have always wanted a big fluffy mainecoon of my own, and felt like it was the right time for us as a family. Fred and Lilly have always gotten along fantastically, so I was hesitant to add a 3rd cat to the mix. I did look at rescues in the area for months, before deciding that a kitten was the best thing to do. (A local rescue that I visited, Last Chance Ranch, in Quakertown, PA, is a wonderful organization, and if you are looking to add any kind of furry, feathery, or scaley animal to your family, check them out!)

OMG Franklin’s little face and big eyes!

Franklin has turned in a sweet and spoiled maniac, just like Lilly and Fredrick!

Dapper Franklin

We couldn’t imagine not having Franklin in our lives, he is a confident, affectionate boy, and makes everyday brighter! Making the decision to bring another cat into an established family unit is a big one. Cats are not like people or even dogs, they do NOT like change, and have to be introduced to each other very CAREFULLY. While kittens are super fun and cute, please think about adopting an equally fun and squeal worthy adult cat!

Fredrick & Lilly are sending their Grammy in Ireland, an extra special Birthday Surprise!!!

After many months of short bouts of feverish editing, followed by even longer bouts of procrastination, I have finished the kittens first book. While not likely to win a Pulitzer prize, I am proud of the results.

I used a Groupon I purchased back in June. It was a perfect find since I was in the process of making the book when I got the email. I ended up paying $10 for the Groupon, and then had to pay the shipping.

There are some new pictures that have not yet been posted yet, so enjoy!!!!
