Pets on Quilts: Shoot for the Moon (Cats on Quilts Category)

Hey Smitty! It's time to choose a quilt for the Pets on Quilts Show...it's the greatest show on Purrrth!



Oh, Gracie...I don't know if I can help pick a quilt right now. I had too many meowgaritas over the weekend. My furs are killing me.



C'mon, Smitty. We gotta help Mom pick out the right quilt for the show! What do you think about this one? It's mom's latest quilty finish, and I gave it high marks for snugglability.


Nah, Gracie...this one isn't right.


It has woofies on it. Everybody knows that no self-respecting cat would choose a quilt with woofies on it. Mom told us about some woofies she saw just this past weekend. Did you know that woofies like to roll in stinky stuff? Geez, Louise. A cat would *never* do that.


Okay, Smitty...well what about this one? This is a good one for snuggling too.


Well, that's a purrty good choice, Gracie, and I helped Mom quilt it.


But she put a woofie on this one too! Right next to that weird cat. And what the heck is wrong with that cat? Sitting right there next to a woofie as big as you please? Some cats don't have the good sense their Mamacats taught them.


I told her not to put that woofie on there, but she never listens to me.


Gracie, I kind of like this one...this one has some good stuff on it. What do you think?


Oh, yeah, Smitty! That's a good one! I helped Mom with this one.


 Yeah, Gracie...this is one of my favorites. It has mousies on it!


Yes, Smitty, and it has cats! And the fabulous constellation of "Meow Minor"!


And Cows! Who doesn't love a nice bowl cow juice every now and then?


Gracie...I gotta say I loves me some cow juice, but it kind of gives me catulence when I drink too much. 

This is a good choice though. I've checked this one for snugglability, and it scored high marks on the snuggle scale.


I guess that settles it then, right Smitty? Shoot for the Moon is our entry fur the Cats on Quilts category.


It seems like a good choice to me, Smitty. Mom says to always Shoot for the Moon because even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.


Don't forget to head back to the show right meow! There are lots more pets to peruse.

With such wonderful helpers, it's no wonder you had so many completed quilts to choose from!
(I like quilts with cows on them, too...)

JLVerde said...

Excellent choice! Not only is it a great quilt but it's dark so it will really show the cat hairs well (I know my cats look for that in a quilt). But you forgot to mention the super fabulous alien on it. Aliens turn good into great!

"Catulence" hahahahahahahaha! Oh my gosh Barbara, you are too funny. Love Smitty and Gracie! They did a great job of choosing your quilts and you did a great job with this post. Shoot for the Moon is a fun and wonderful quilt!
LOL - and I just wrote about my Penny rolling in stinky stuff. "Eau de Colon"

Way to think through the choices Smitty and Gracie, you are some smart kitties! Mine could learn a thing or two from you both. Thanks for sharing the awesome moon quilt, it's very fun and I love the snugglability factor!

PURRRRRFECT choice, kitties! And, yes, I'm afraid I have to confirm, woofies DO love to roll in stinky stuff. Still don't believe me? C'mon over, I've got a woofie at my feet & you can smell her fur yourselves! Heck, you don't even have to get really close to smell her stinky butt. Actually, though, it's not her butt that's so stinky, it's her punkin HEAD!! What's up with that, anyway???

Junebug613 said...

Good job, Gracie and Smitty! You two are such good helpers. I might just have to enlist the help of some of my kitties to pick out a quilt they like for me to post.

Cath said...

Very clever Kitties! I spotted your quilt straight away in the thumbnails and made it my first stop for the show! Luckily I was sent a reminder by a lovely quilty friend or I might not have gotten my Callie: Dog on a quilt posted on time.....Good Luck Kitties!

Abhijit Sarkar said...

To be really honest these Custom embroidery patches are simply amazing, In fact I love all the patches you share here.

Jacque said...

Hehee! I love it when Smitty and Gracie take over the blog....they're so cute, and they have great senses of humor, just like their mama! Love this quilt, and the sentiment, too! Thanks for joining the purrrrty!

Lynda Halliger Otvos (Lynda M O) said...

Fun stuff, Barbara, your kitties are the best furbabies on the Web this week.

Dar said...

Your cats are such good helpers and very, very smart!! Of course, most cats are smarter than woofies, right?? Love their banter trying to decide which one to select. You are so blessed to have such delightful felines.

Crafty Tokyo Mama said...

Loved your witty prose, and those pictures of Smitty overseeing your quilting are too funny!

Too many meowgaritas...I love it! I wish my cat would drink those with me. I love how cats are always so helpful and it looks like your two fur babies love helping. I commend them, I think the quilt they chose was just perfect for this post.
