Cocoa Kitty for the 2011 Pets on Quilts Show




Okay here in our Cocoa Marie!


Now I hope this counts for the Pets on Quilts Show because she is on 2 quilts! Hahaha!
She decided to nap in this gift box ! Why? Well you know cats love tissue paper and small boxes but other than that it was placed on HER QUILT! Under her quilt is a bed quilt!!
So hence our sweet kitty is on 2 quilts!

Here is Cocoa Kitty below napping on quilt batting under the cutting table!

Yes she likes the quilts before they are quilts too!!!!

Hope you have enjoyed our funny fickle feline's pics!
Cocoa is a mess but we love her!


She has been with us 12 years!
Cocoa was only 5 weeks old when DH rescued her.
Her mother who had been dumped with her kittens, was ran over.
Baby Cocoa only one to survive! A fighter!!

Sadly this rural area has long been a dumping ground for unwanted cats and dogs.
Dumping an animal is not a way to FREE it or give it a chance ...can be a death sentence!!
If only more folks would understand that neutering is not a bad thing and can be done for little money with Snip Vans and other such animal organizations!
Please consider a rescued pet when you are thinking of adopting a fur babe of your own!
If the one you bring home is not a good fit please take the sweetie back for another chance at a new forever home. No shame in that either!

Okay off my soap box...for now!;-)

Oh My Goodness I almost for got to add my quilt entry !!

This is Alice's Purple Kitties in the Garden.

I made this as a birthday gift for my pal Alice.
It is a cute quilted wall hanging if I say so myself! ;-)
Had to be purple as Alice loves purple!
Thanks for looking and hope you consider casting a vote for me and Cocoa Kitty too!

Now scoot on over to Sew Cal Gal's Blog to see all the other cuties of Pets On Quilts Show of 2011!!

  14. I couldn't agree more Lola, I volunteer at our humane society and after years of seeing the numbers come through the doors you'd think people would get it by now. But anyway, Cocoa is one lucky cat, and beautiful to boot!

  15. A cutie pie for sure. My fur baby was a rescue pet - she had a twin sister, but snippy didn't make it, which made bella rather possesive of me.

  16. Could not agree more about neutering! Lovely kitten and quilts!

  17. Cocoa is a good quilt inspector. I can never understand how some people can just abandon their cat with babies by the side of the road. I love the colours in that orange and green quilt top!

  22. One of my aunts used to always add Marie to someone's name whether it was their middle name or not. Thanks for this memory of my aunt! Love your wallhanging! I'm with Alice. Purple is great!

  23. What a sweet little face on Cocoa, how lucky for you to find her. It's so sad to see lost kitties wandering around and looking for a home, I can't imagine how people can be so cruel. Just hug your sweet baby whenever you can! Love your kitty quilt, too!

  26. Your kitty quilt is SO cute!! Just adorable.

  27. I love the name of "Cocoa Kitty". Absolutely purrfect for her. And she is such a beautiful cat and your quilts are beautiful too.

    Thanks too for the reminder of the importance of spay & neuter and to not dump pets anyplace. Such a shame when there are so many places people can drop off unwanted pets that will care for them properly until good homes can be found. But good spay & neuter would have stopped such a situation from happening, so I'll get out my soap box and join you!

    Thanks for participating in the Pets on Quilts Show.

  28. Cocoa shares my middle name! :) She's absolutely adorable!

  29. I, too, live in a rural area, and we often have lonely, bewildered pets come to our house. We hate to do it, but must take them on to the shelter; we have rescued several by keeping them, but can't take on any more. Wish the people would spay and neuter instead of waiting till there is a litter of pups or kitties to deal with....

  30. Love your soap box...it is an important topic.

    that bottom quilt is cute as can be!

  31. Your cat is beautiful. Looks just like our Goldie. We rescued most of our cats that we have had over the years. Right now we are down to 4.
    Your cat wallhanging is beautiful.

  34. Your purple cat quilt is wonderful! Your friend is so lucky to get such a nice gift. I have 3 rescue cats and 2 rescue dogs myself. Furbabies are the sweetest!

  41. Your purple kitty quilt is so cute and of course Cocoa is a doll too. I agree, the middle cat on the quilt looks like Cocoa. I wonder why :)

  44. Clap, Clap, Clap! So glad you got on your soap box. We talked our co-worker out of dumping his dog out in the country. Telling him it was cruel and explaining what really happens to animals. Turned out he kept the dog and now enjoys it that it's out of the puppy stage. Cocoa Marie- pretty name is a beauty and I love your cat quilt - very cute.

  45. Your Cocoa is charming. And I was glad to read your reminder about abandoned animals. My rescued dog was found with seven puppies and was near death. If you reached just a few with your comments, you will have saved many. Thank you so much. Give Cocoa a hug for me!

    PS the Purple Cats in the Garden are too cute ...
