Fiber animals

Here are my two fiber animals. Cameo is my 12 year old cat, she came to me a 4 week old ball of kitten fluff barely as big as my hand. I love her coloring, calico's have always been my favorite. I especially like her white belly and chest.

She does not like to be brushed, so I only have a very small bag of her fur. It's flyaway and soft like angora

And here is Madame Thatcher - Maggie for short. Notice the similarity in coloring? Yeah, I like it in dogs too. They are nothing alike in temperament though. Maggie is a typical dog, loves everyone, will do anything for attention. Cameo on the other hand will come to you when she wants something and otherwise prefers to be left alone.

Maggie is almost 2 years old. She was about 3 months old when she came to live with us. I used to have Mastiffs, and when I wanted a dog of my own again, I could not make up my mind between wanting a small dog that could travel with us or a big dog to love on and play rough with. The bulldog gives me both. She's not too big to travel with and will roughhouse until she drops.

She does not have spinnable fur though. Posted by Picasa

I have a Manchester Terrier whose "official" name is Margaret Thatcher. We too call her "Maggie" for short. She's 13 years old and her vet says she is in amazingly good shape.
