Wee kitty

by brae  

There's a new mini kitty in my collection.  :D

Isabeau is a beautifully made Maine Coon cat by Maya Schippl.

Isabeau is slightly smaller than the other cats I have when shown in comparison, like Ophelia here, but they both fit perfectly in 1:12 scale.  :]

Her small stature reminds me of a real life kitty from my past.  I worked at Save-A-Pet one summer and took care of the incoming cats.  This was a room with individual cages for quarantine before the animals could be integrated into the general cat room.  My responsibilities included cleaning the incoming cat room cages as well as those of the "sick" cat room where the vet oversaw more intense cases.

One incoming cat the staff named Howard was about the size of a 10 week old kitten when he came in.  He was so ill.  He had a terrible respiratory infection and was sick for quite awhile.  When I would clean his cage, he would lie limply around my shoulders like a scarf.  He had so little energy from fighting the infection that the vet wasn't sure he would ever get any bigger.  He would spend his adulthood at the size of a 10 week old kitten.  I fell in love with that cat in the time we spent during his recovery, but my parents didn't allow animals in the house so adopting him myself was out of the question.  He was adopted one busy Saturday later that season, and the staff came to get me to break the news.  The people adopting him let me hold him as they filled out the paperwork, and he fell asleep in the hustle and bustle around us.  Sweet little kitty.  I always wondered how his life turned out.  :]

A quick switch between hobbies...

I'm going to take a short break here to make a dress for a special event coming up soon.  :D  In the time not spent working on that, there will be secret HBS build progress going on.  So, it might be a little quiet around here for a few days.

The Wee Sisters Three

by brae  

April, Blondie and Debora sent me the most adorable trio of mice for my birthday (from CozyMilArt).  These three wee sisters are Daisy, Poppy and Fleur.  While they each have their own personality and vary in looks, I still might have to make bracelets for them so I can keep them straight.  :D

The included flowers are removable, but they can stand on their own without them.  They can even hold other things.

They found the toy chest!  Wheeeeeeeeeee!

As you can see, they are good for child size in 1:12 scale, though they could work as adult sized mice in half scale.  :]

Thank you so much, ladies!!  I love them!  :D

What's in the box?!!

by brae  

No, no, Milo...there are no treats in the sea chest.  :\

We had some fun in the barn with only a modest bit of clean up needed afterward.  :O
