Alfalfa, at Your Service!

Hi Peeples! I’m Alfie. You probably already know me because I have posted here a couple of times before. I was going to post again earlier, but my sister Darla was on the computer and took FOR.EV.ER. to get done. Girls!

Today I am linking up to the one and only Pets on Quilts Show over at Lily Pad Quilting. You may remember that I talked about it a couple weeks ago.  Without further ado, here is my official Pawtrait. Mom actually had another picture of me on this quilt, or rather under it, but the only thing that showed was my tail. I didn’t know if you would recognize just my tail (as fine as it is......)


Or should I use the picture below? It was just taken this week when Mom needed me to pose on her new quilted table runner.


You know, I wasn’t always a cat heartthrob. Once I was a little cub kitten. In fact, they say I was the runt (what’s that?) of the litter. This was my first picture.


I think Darla told you in the last post that our other brothers (Buckwheat, Spanky and Stymie) went to live in other places, but my sister Darla and I came to live here with Mom and Dad about three years ago. Mom calls us her Little Rascals.  Hey, if I tell you a secret, will you promise not to tell Darla? The truth is that I really do love her. She is a great cuddle buddy. But just don’t let her know that. I like to keep her guessing!


Sometimes I like to do crazy things or strike crazy poses just to get some attention. I do a great Prairie Dog imitation, too, up on my hind legs.


Here is a picture of me when I was helping mom cut some yellow fabric for one of her quilts. Yeah, I help around the studio.


I always check to make sure her machine is ready to go and, most importantly, that there are no pins on the design boards where cats kids can reach them. Yeah, I always check that. Below is a picture of me (as a teenager) measuring quilts for my mom. 


And just to show you how well-rounded I am, here is a picture of me helping mom in her office, where she used to run an Etsy business. That’s me checking the paper the printer, below. Or maybe I was just steadying it as it printed. I can’t quite remember.


So, please go visit the linkup and look at all the other interesting cats, dogs and other pets on quilts. You will, of course, want to “LIKE” my picture, because, how could you not??

(WINK)

Best Wishes (isn’t that how they sign pawtagraphs?)
Alfie

Alfie, What a great helper you are in the sewing room. You have some beautiful kitty eyes too!

Valerie Reynolds said...

Alfie looks like the "mature" one of the two. : :)

Alfie, you are making this a very difficult choice. Darla is pretty cute, but you have so much character. And you DO do WAY more in the quilt department AND the office department. I vote for YOU!!

xx, Carol

What a handsome boy! I'll keep the secret but it does look like you are sweet to your sister :-)

We can see that you do, indeed, have a very fine tail Alfie! You and Darla both have the sweetest little baby pictures. I wish I had baby pictures, but my mom didn't get to adopt me until I was already 3 years old. She's making up for lost time now though - pictures of everything I do! It's enough to make a kitty paranoid, ya know? I always check for pins in mom's studio too, but secretly it's because I want to play with them (shhh - don't tell her!)

Missy Shay said...

Alfafa seems pretty mischievous! LOL

Sally T said...

You seem like a very genial fellow, Alfie. It probably helped that you were such an ugly kitten. Respectfully, Molly

Charlotte M. said...

What a beautiful kitty. I am partial to orange kitties.

Sally T said...

Oh dear. Apparently Molly needs a bit more socialization. Sally

Too cute. You have some beautiful fur-babies that would make great quilt calendar models. I absolutely loved your post. Thanks for sharing.

Alfie, you were just as cute as a kitten as you are handsome as a grown man. Glad to see you have your mom's back in helping with all her quilting chores. And mums the word, we will keep your secret safe from Darla...but I'm guessing she already knows.

Alfie, you have grown into such a handsome devil. It's nice that you have managed not to become stuck up. I'm sure Darla appreciates that you will still cuddle with her.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

You are such a good brother Alfie - I'm sure Darla appreciates you looking out for her and that Mom really appreciates all your help in the studio. I trust you help Dad too!

Barbara said...

Alfie, you are one handsome kitty!

Absolutely adorable!!! Great poser too!!

Brandy Pettit said...

Alfie you're too cute. Let you mom know how much I like that table runner she finished recently, the pumpkins are so cute and I just love orange and black together! Which means you look good on it too :)

Alfie, you are one handsome guy and your pictures with Darla show that you're not a runt anymore.

Lara B. said...

Hahaha - Alfie really does look like he's winking. An adorable kitty Cathy! He looks like the purrfect sewing companion.

Susie Q said...

Hi Alfie you are really cute and my favourite picture is the last one where you are winking at us all. Hugs, Susie x

Nancy J said...

Alfie, you make me smile, a wonderful story, and my favourite pic, is when you were just a wee baby. Cheers, Nancy J.
