THE DUDE


This is my Fabby birthday pressy for Sunday (an early one ha ha) I have always wanted a chunky cat that would sit on my knee and be stroked. Let me introduce you to THE DUDE he is 3yrs old from a rescue centre and had the name 'Sky' but we all thought that was a bit girly for him. He is so cool and relaxed he suits his name beautifully (from the film 'The Big Labowski') Dude and Hunny are already getting on well and with time I think will be best friends. There was also a mother kitten abandoned in a black bag with 6 kittens over a man's  back garden. The kittens are only 10 days old and mum and kittens are doing well. We will be going back in 6wks to rescue a kitten too. There were so many cats with such sad story's, I could have brought more home but Dude will get chance to settle in with Hunny and us ;0) and I don't think the kitten will be any bother with the other cats when he/she comes to stay.


I put Dude up on the work top, so I could get a close up of his beautiful face for you all. Dude by no means replaces my beloved Dita, I just couldn't have another dog with Hunny unless it was a puppy and so I suppose to help me heal as well it's so nice to have The Dude and Hunny now and soon a new kitten to keep me occupied. Cats are also very therapeutic and help me with my illnesses. I am sorry there is no craft today and I hope to have something to share with you tomorrow. Love Dawn xx

Oh Dawn, Dude is sooooo delicious. He's certainly landed on his feet coming to you hasn't he?! All our pets are rescued; I think it makes them extra special. Happy Birthday (whenever it is?)x

Oh, my, what a handsome fellow he is! Good for you, giving a sweet shelter kitty a loving home. Can't wait to see photos of the kitten when he/she arrives, too.

What a perfect way to celebrate! Happy birthday, dear friend!

Awww The Dude is such a handsome chap. Did you get him from the rescue centre in Hyde. My daughter did her work experience there 3 years ago. Good luck with the new kitten too. Debs xx

What a perfect birthday gift. He's a gorgeous guy. I am not sure whether you will spoil him more or he will spoil you more. Either way, I know it's a match made in heaven (or at least the rescue shelter).
