  48. I am a new follower (with GFC) of your blog. It is always wonderful to find another quilter who has fur babies too -- and Phoebe and Dunkin are so sweet looking! I am located in northern Florida. We have 2 inside cats, and outside we have a "stray" cat who we had altered and got all of her shots for, and placed her in a new forever home. After 2 weeks, her new owners let her out and she vanished! Six days later, after walking blocks and blocks and crossing a major highway, she came staggering up the sidewalk of our apartment complex, meowing and letting me know that she was hungry and tired and HOME. We were so relieved! In the winter we have a stuffed snowman on our patio table, and we put a folded up quilt on the snowman's lap, with a heating pad concealed in the middle, and she sleeps on the snowman's laps when it is very cold.
