Animals' Carnival Baby Nursery Photos

Just thought I'd share the creative project that consumed me for the first few months of this Murtha's nursery! It was a true labor of love! I enjoyed every second of designing our baby's nursery and watching it come to life. This week, I entered an online baby nursery contest, so if you feel like commenting and rating it, please head over to this link: The nursery has a circus-y feel but since we aren't big on real circuses and the way they treat animals, we call our nursery theme "Carnival at the Animal Sanctuary" :).

I cannot believe that I haven't posted a THING since October!! Well, let's just say life has been very busy, and I have been "working" on my biggest project yet :). Yep, a mini Murtha is on the way! We are due on June 24. Just thought I'd share the news (with anyone that has been patient enough to still be following my blog :)!!!). Here are a few photos of the blossoming baby bump over the past 36 weeks. Nursery photos soon!

Always in your heart....

A dear friend of mine lost one of her beloved kitties last week very unexpectedly. I wanted to create a happy memorial to him illustrating that our precious pets always remain in our hearts. The joy and love they bring never dies.....

Sleeping Minnie...

Yesterday was rainy and dreary here all day, so it was especially nice to crawl in the bed and snuggle with the furballs. Minnie was purr-ticularly happy and content....

On Friday, I had to pick up a sick old tomcat, now named Mr. Ed, at one of the trailer parks where I TNR. The wonderful feral colony caretaker, Regina, found him huddled on her doorstep Wednesday night and brought him in. We were both very anxious and worried about him, but the good news is that he should be ok after some meds and TLC. And hopefully, we can get him neutered in two weeks once he is stronger. So, while I was there chatting outside with Regina, I looked up and saw what has to be the funniest thing EVER!!! Her voluptuous indoor cat, Maggie, had squished herself down between the back of the sofa and the window. I was crying laughing and hooting and hollering like a lunatic over this scene. Regina said that she does it all the time and sometimes falls asleep like that. Absolutely hilarious. It looks like she is levitating. And she just keep blinking at me as if to say, "what is wrong with you lady and why are you laughing at ME?" I can never say it enough. I. LOVE. CATS.
