Rescue Me Giveaway

Lily Pad Quilting is having a giveaway of fabric and a link up party of rescued pets.  A common thread in the Quilt Blog Land is most of us have pets that somehow entangle themselves in our quilting lives.  This post is dedicated to my rescued pets and the story behind each one.


Here is my rescue pets, each of these came from my son's ex-girlfriends that needed to move on in their lives and couldn't continue to care for the animals.  It just happened to be a poor choices and lucky we were able to step up and take over.

First came our now dog Sierra:



Next came a black cat that ran off after we moved, but this is one of her kittens that is now a very sassy fat cat.  My husband is notorious for naming our animals goofy names, and her's is no exception, Chunky Tuna:




She doesn't like to have her picture taken!

And finally, another awesome cat.  He is a floppy moppsy kind of cat.  Loves to be in a lap, held, walked around with, ride in a car....  Nothing much bothers him, even when big dogs come and visit, he just walks around them and lets them smell him over and goes off to eat or get something to eat.  He is the kind of cat everyone wants, as he is not aloof at all!!  His name is Junior Jones the III.  Again my husband's doing of naming the animals.  He insists on being where ever you happen to be, and could care less if he is impeding on what you are trying to get done.




Our last pet was not rescued, but was given to us free because the owner did not have the pure breed paperwork to go with the puppies.  This is Rufus and he is a Sheltie.



Rufus and Sierra are inseparable so it is unusually to get a picture of them apart.  This picture is more like what you will find them throughout the day.




This has been fun, so if you have a rescue pet, click on the link above or below rescue me and it will take you to the linky party about rescuer pets and a chance to win some fabric!

Poor choices is what leads to the need of rescue - you have done a lovely job of rescuing. AND I like Chunky Tuna for a name!

You may think the last dog is not a rescue; but, I think it is considering you took him in. :-)
