Finally, I had my photoshoot with my kitty Cosmo tonight! I had pneumonia and missed the first 2 weeks of my last semester of college, so I was in bed with Cosmo being my nursemaid and doing as much crafting as my codine-laced prescription cough medicine would allow.
taking everything out of the box, Mr. Nosy investigating...
Sooo, here are my amazing swap items from the wonderful Annacharlotte!
I go upstate (I live in NYC) to visit my parents every other month-ish, and Cosmo comes with me, because my parents love him. Annacharlotte made me a bag to carry all his stuff in (and some of mine.)
And it's REVERSIBLE!
A matching pillow that also matches my apartment! Note all the cat hair that takes over anything black.
An exploration tunnel that makes crinkly sounds- makes Cosmo go crazy!
He absolutely REFUSED to go in it when I was taking pictures. He usually only goes in there when no one is looking. He drags it around the apartment, jumps on it, opens it with his nose and paws, goes through once, then drags it to another part of the apt. This is him jumping all over it so it would crinkle.
A NECKLACE! It has a long silver chain, and looks so classy. When you look close, the charms are Cosmo portraits of my kitty on it. I LOVE it! I couldn't take a picture of it without His Highness trying to take it away from me.
CAT TIES!!! So exciting. Since I got a sewing machine, but am so not mechanically inclined, my cat ties came out retarded. Annacharlotte made gorgeous ones! Matching, of course.
His dramatic, modeling pose:
Three, washable, reusable, refillable bags (matching fabric!) with organic (Annacharlotte and I both like organic things) catnip.
He is under a year old, still a baby although getting huge, so catnip is just starting to affect him. He was sitting on my bed, licking it, then rolling around for a few mins, then coming back for more. Note the catnip all over my bed...
A whimsical shadowbox portrait of the kitty. I LOVE this! If I HAD to pick a favorite item, this would be it.
This shows the dimention of it. You can't see it well in the picture, but there are circles sewn into it with rainbow, metallic thread:
I was going to put it on my wall somewhere, but it looks great on my bookshelf, it's on the upper right corner. Fat Cat can be seen taking one of his many naps on his chair:
Cosmo admiring his goodies:
Don't I look gorgeous in my tie? PS: It's reversible!
All the goodies:
Cosmo and I thank Annacharlotte SO MUCH
for all of our beautiful, thoughtful, and wonderfully made swap goodies! She spoiled us!
Love, Jaime and Cosmo
