This is Emily.

Emily, helping me pinbaste a quilt

She is 13 years old and follows me everywhere. EVERYwhere. If you ever videochat with me, you’ll see me throw the cat off the table probably about every 15 seconds or so.

ANYWAY. She also talks a lot, apparently as calico kitties have a tendency to do. Her voice is raspy and soft, and we have accused her of smoking all of her life. (She does not smoke, by the way. In case you were wondering.)

Kitty is also neurotic. She rips holes in herself when under stress. I was out of town at ScrapShare Texas last weekend. For Emily, who follows me EVERYwhere, this = stress. So she has ripped three holes in herself: left shoulder, right chest, and chin.

This morning, Jay said that she looked like a zombie. And then he said, in the exact tone and volume in which she meows, “Braaaaaains!”

Every time she has talked today, which is a lot, I hear “Braaaaaaaains!” and it makes me laugh.

Just thought I’d share. Maybe it’s not as funny to you, but I find it totally hilarious.

  1. Hmmmm, my calico cat growing up follwed me everywhere. She slept on my head at night. She was also deaf and it made it all that much funnier. She waited for me everyday to get home from school. Your poor stressed out kitty! She is sooooo cute!

  2. Hmm, my calico is almost mute.

    Are you using safety pins to sandwich? Do you machine quilt thru them or remove them as you go along? I notice they’re all open, do you have one of those tool thingys to close them?
