Crystal and Cotton

We received a lovely gift from KC of the Cat Blogosphere today. It's a pendant. KC had one made for her mom when they lost Charlie Taylor, the older kitty she and Auntie Deb rescued.

This is the front of the pendant with our favorite photo of Crystal.


And this is the back of it. Makes you teary, doesn't it!


We can either put a chain on it for a necklace or put it on a key chain with a clip. But since none of us kitties or woofies wear that type of jewelry or carry keys, we are going to give it to Jan and let her decide.

This was made by a lady who sells "whimsical trinkets and keepsakes" at a shop on Etsy called Oliviamoon. Stop by and browse.

Thank you so much, KC! This is something we are sure Jan will treasure. Because as you know from personal experience, humans miss their furries when they pass away.

Update from the comments:
We is so happy you like it, it is furry beautiful.
Miss Susan of OlivaMoon makes beautiful fings, customized just fur you. Mommy ML loves her Charlie Taylor pendant. You can see hers here and on CT's Catster Page (scroll down).
And a chain is on its way to Momma Jan from Susan, so you will haf a way to wear it.
Love & Purrs,
KC


We fear Jan's brain has been affected by the recent mishaps with her toe, so we decided to see if we can jog her creative streak -- you know, the one she left on the school bus when she was a kid. The last two days we have hemmed her in so she can't leave her chair until she finishes her work. Yesterday she finished Buddy Glow. Today we have another new design for our Zazzle store. This one is called Cotton Mosaic. We think Cotton is cute in any design, including the original tortoiseshell she was born with.


The Bumpass Hounds will probably be back blogging today but just in case they aren't, we're going to ask again if you would take a couple of minutes to submit a couple of votes.

We hope you will go to the Toyota Racing site at http://www.sponsafier.com/#/gallery/view/120029 and vote for Trooper Jessica's memorial design.

And after you click to feed shelter and rescue animals at the Animal Rescue Site, as soon as you click the button to feed the shelter animals today --
Look toward the top of the page for the shelter challenge voting button. Click on it.
From the state drop down menu, choose "WV."
At the bottom of the box click "search."
The second shelter listed is AHGRR in Capon Bridge. Click "vote."
To validate your vote, type in whatever type of animal you see: elephant, cow, dog ......

  2. We are going to check out Oliviamoon. The pendant is lovely. Daddy tried to get Mommy a custom made plush toy of Charybdis for Christmas but ..............we still hasn't gotten it and we are getting annoyed with the owner as he has had our money since December and delivered nothing to us.

  6. What a lovely pendant! That was so nice of KC to find that for you. I will have to visit and see if I could get one for Roscoe's mom. I know she still misses him. They always leave a big hole in our hearts when our furries leave us. I know this pendant will help you remember Crystal and keep him close to you.
    I also need to check out the Zazzle store now that the folks are back. So much is happening and I don't know what is going on.

  22. Hey JFF Gang,
    What a great way for Ms. Jan to have Crystal be with her in a special way. She can just touch him to bring back all the GReat memories of him. It is very thoughtful of y'all to let Ms. Jan be Crystal's custodian.
    And thank you so very, very much for spreading the voting word while we were out of alignment with the man made star in the southern sky from whence we receive our connection to the blogosphere. You have our respect and admiration because you are such a thoughtful and concerned pack.
