Wiped OUT! What A Weekend!

It's always so much fun to do a Cat Show and SUCH a relief when they're OVER!!! Here's a glimpse of the booth set-up:

I can never thank SIL and Big Sis enough for all their hard work and I must also include my brother-in-law in that group this time, too - he helped us set up, then was a surprise customer when his Mom sent him over to the show yesterday to buy her birthday present! SHE wanted another Nana Sadie Rose bag!

And the delight of it all? As BIL was searching through to pick out a bag for her, he reached one and said, "This is it! This is the one! It's perfect for Mom!" And I said, "are you SURE?" "Oh, YES! No question."

So I wrote up the sale, and inserted a very special card in the pocket and said, "Make your mom read this. She's a very lucky lady - you chose my 500TH bag for her birthday gift!"

I promise you, there was no way he knew. Even his wife and my SIL didn't know until that morning, and they hadn't seen him come in to shop. I can't think of another person I'd have rather had purchase my 500TH bag! I know she'll love it.

This was another time when my booth was very close to the Siamese Rescue booth, so we all had a good time chatting during the show. At one point on Saturday, a lovely little boy meeze was the star attraction, but today, Sunday, this little lady, Tamara spent awhile with us. She's extra special - no one knows how it happened, as she was sent to rescue from a shelter with no history, but notice her very special needs?
Tamara gets around very well on her three legs, and her short tail is not a problem for her either. She was NOT terribly happy about the harness & leash she had to wear while at the show, but she was scooting around checking everyone out. She's the sweetest, most loving little gal. If you'd be interested in adopting her, her Virginia Rescue number is VA5007 and you can see her on the website linked above. I'd take her in a minute if I could!
(The Meezer just said, "the H-E-double-hockey-sticks you say! I'm the only Meezer in this house...")

We'll see, Meeze, we'll see...
(contest results on Wednesday, I promise, and yes, we have 2 winners...) Now I'm off to bed!

Your 500th bag couldn't have gone to a better recipient! Lovely!

I hope little Tamara gets a good home!

Mason feels the same way about being the only meezer in this family! I am wondering about the harness she is wearing, though. Mason loves to get outside but I don't let him out. We tried a harness once just to let him be out on the deck with us but he escaped from it, being a little Houdini. The one that Tamara is wearing looks more escape proof, though. Do you know anything about ones like that?

Ah, fond connections with Siamese Rescue - our family of 3 Meezers came from Texas Siamese Rescue.

Congrats on a successful show!

it's great that your 500th bag found such a great home that's close to you!

what a beautiful cat. i used to have a cat with a very short tail. he was perfectly happy with it and it didn't affect him at all.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
