Baby Big Fat Kitty

This is my Big Fat Kitty when she was a baby. Here you see her on her afghan, pitty-patting away. She is truly my yarn kitty. If there is an afghan anywhere around, she wants to be on it. If I am trying to crochet something, she is in the middle of it, *helping.* She was our baby before we had babies. Even though she is almost nine years old (sweet husband got her for me while we were still newleyweds), she still wants to be babied. When she was this little she used to sit on our shoulders like a little parrot. Well, she can't do that anymore but a couple of times she tried, and the laws of physics would not permit it. As it is, when she lays down, she kind of oozes over the edge of the little ledge she sits on. Well, she's still my yarn kitty, and she still like it when I sing her lullabies and scratch under her chin.

I thought I was the only one who sang to their cats. I sing this to my cat Daisy;

"Daisy, Daisy,
Give me your answer true.
I'm half crazy over the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage.
But you'll look sweet,
upon a seat
of a bicycle built for two."

I always thought the song was called 'Daisy, Daisy', but it is actually a song called
"A bicycle built for two (Daisy Bell)"
Composer & Lyricist: Harry Dacre

Awwww...very cute.

Isn't it funny how often couples buy a pet first, then later progress to rearing children!
