If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, then you are familiar with Cottonball- the once-feral cat that my husband and I saved from our backyard. He was part of a feral colony that lived in the riparian area that wound its way through our old neighborhood.
We guesstimate that he was born in March, 2012. By May of that year, he started showing up at our back door for food and water. Most of his fellow ferals would come for a snack but then quickly retreat to the woods. Not Cottonball, though- he was way too curious about us to leave.
Once we caught him and received the green light from our vet, he basically took a strong-hold over both Jon and I. I don’t think our other cats, Wrigley and Maya, were nearly as enthusiastic. They hashed things out as cats will do, and Cottonball continued to develop the most remarkable personality.
You may be wondering where this is all going…well, I needed to introduce you to Cottonball because he is something of an apprentice in our house. And by “apprentice”, I mean he is fascinated by everything we do- painting, electrical work, fireplace maintenance, cleaning, furniture construction, cooking, and yes, crafting. In fact, you could say he puts the C-A-T in C-r-A-f-T.
What is that, you say? Oh, you want more pictures? Well, I certainly don’t want to disappoint you.
Moral of the story- Cottonball will likely pop up periodically here on Sadie Seasongoods. He’s like my virtual shop cat. I hope you will enjoy his antics- and photobombs- along the way.
