What are you most proud of? Rescuing Oliver and keeping him alive. He nearly died twice the 1st week we had him. I've made the commitment to a lifetime of love and care. He's brought a lot of laughter and joy after losing my 14 year companion Oscar last year.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is the only way I could think of to let you all know I'm now NanaJeanFL (formerly NewbieJean and WasaNewbieJean). But... I still have a lot to learn. I'm grateful to all my Craftsy friends for your help, encouragement and inspiration :D

Happy new name and what a wonderful new companion, such a beautiful face, he certainly looks a cheeky one and a survivor obviously, hope you have lots of lovely moments of joy & happiness together.

Cheeky indeed! He's the most determined and stubborn cat I've ever encountered. The Vet called him a cat terrorist after hearing stories of his antics. Too bad there's too little space to share about the snakes. Thanks much for the happy wishes Karen. Thus far that's when he's been.

I Knew That Was You! You cannot escape. Recognized the green and white chair in the background and your flower picture. Love the kitty. Full grown???? Still thinking of getting a cat. Miss my dog of 16 years, but too old to take on a new puppy in the New England winters. I like both cats and dogs. This one sure seems like the perfect one for me! Nice to see you on line, Jean.

I feel for your loss - even though each one is unique. Those we've lived with for so long are greatly missed. Ollie is his own self - a real character. I know I'll miss Oscar for some time to come. He was the closest companion I've ever had. I'm hoping Ollie is to nearly grown. He's 12 pounds at 10 months and quite large already. Our last two were 14 and 18 pounds as adults - both large cats. I think it is due to being indoor only cats. I've been tempted to rescue a friend but fear we'd then have two tearing around the house :)) But I recently realized Ollie may be my last cat due to my age. Perhaps I should consider an older friend? Look forward to seeing more of your work :D

Hello NanaJean :)))) Love the new name.... my aren't you making changes:) What a cute little kitten and so fortunate to have found you. I still miss my wee tigger of 18 years but alas I am away alot looking after my three little grandkids so no time to look after a new pet. Looking forward to see what your making next, I am busy making sensory quilts for Elise and Jesse and want to give them at the same time so watch this space as they say!

Ooo! Sensory quilts! Be sure to post pics and give details on what you use to make them touchy feely. So sorry to hear about your tigger. We have one grandson (the only we'll every have) who lives 3,000 miles away. He just tested allergic to both cats and dogs! Guess its a good thing we usually visit them instead of them visiting us. Still when they're here I "de-cat" the house best I can and he goes on meds. Enjoy your grandkids as much as you can :D

What a sweetie! Almost didn't recognize the name change! LOL! Don't ever change that flower! So glad you rescued this kitty! All the best to you and your new companion -

Thanks Desna! I love that flower. Its a hibiscus from our front yard the 1st year we were in FL. I have 3 plants. They are dwarf hybrids and bloom heavily. Each blossom only lasts a day but every day there are multiple new ones. I remove the spent blooms each evening once they close up. My biggest and most pleasing surprise has been growing orchids - something I've never tried before. Perhaps they'd be good subjects when I get around to doing the photo class!
