  This is my Grumpette or Grumpy for short.  She was the only cat I knew that could growl and purr at the same time.  I say "was" because in 2010 at the age of 16 I had to say goodbye to my friend.  Devastating to say the least and I cannot think about her even today without tearing up and just sighing at my loss.

Grumpy thought she owned the place.  She slept on top of my dryer because she did not want to be near my dogs. But if I sat in my recliner it was only a matter of minutes until she took off running from the dryer , across my table and then to my recliner where she took her position on top of my chest.  There she stayed until I had to get up for some reason.  Every now and then she would smack me and hiss and I would have to set her straight but for the most part I was the only one she went to.  In essence, she was MY cat!  I still have a hard time when I go to do the laundry and she is not on top of my dryer.  Goodness this is painful..

..thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to your comments.

  Now, hop on over toYvette L. and see the beautiful creations she has made for the hop.  Please be sure to stop by tomorrow and hop along with us again to see more crafty creations.  Remember, to adopt/rescue a little furry feline friend.
