 Saturday night we had very special company for supper.  Dad's brother, Greg, and his wife, Karen!!  I bet you are asking why they are special, well I have a magical story** to share.
Take a good look at this picture of the real Madi...then

take look at me immortalized on a quilted wall hanging.....made by Ms. Karen for Mom....'just because'!!
I declare it is the spitting image of me...oh my cats...I cannot tell
you how very happy Mom she squealed like a 10 year old
was when she saw this most beautiful quilted wall hanging
of, Moi, Madi!!!  We hope you can see the attention to details
she even gave me whiskers and my nose freckles are purrfect.  There are little mices around the perimeter, and little tiny beads in very strategic places even in my pupils they really shine in person.
It is hanging in our guest bedroom and ironically on Friday Mom bought a new bedspread for the room which is the exact shade of the light green on the quilt. 
 This is my first look at my 'quilted self'. At first I
thought I had been cloned. MOL
 Look closely right at the beginning of my
tail and you will see a patch of my furs that she secretly asked Dad
to steal.
 Ms. Karen, I must say I'm nearly as astounded as Mom; however, I'm too dignified to squeal like a 10 year old, so I'll  just say

**Ms. Karen is an animal lover; however, she is allergic to kitty furs and trust me when I say I have lots of furs. So it was very special for her to come to our house for an extended period.
Mom and I really and truly do just love Karen (and Greg) to bits but we totally understand allergies.  Mom and Dad are allergic to pine trees so we don't have them in the house MOL!!
Ms. Karen you are a very special lady to us and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Madi and Mom
