Nature and Feline Friday with Kat and some other Cats

Thanks Comedy Plus for hosting

Thanks LLB Gang for hosting

Mom and Dad took a day-trip to Nevada’s oldest state park, Valley of Fire.
According to Wikipedia:

The state park derives its name from red sandstone formations, the Aztec Sandstone, which formed from shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago. (Wikipedia)

They saw several big horned sheep, and this guy was nice enough to pose.
Bighorn Sheep who probably is the boss of Valley of Fire, Nevada where he resides

I watched the video on Dad’s laptop,  and I’m happy I stayed home. 😹

Drive thru some of the most gorgeous Red Rocks!!
Mom of Kat and Pup took both these while Dad Drove

Deareast nephew!!! 
OMCs can you imagine getting up close and purrsonal with that Big Horn Sheep?
You are for sure in some beautiful country.  I loved the red rocks!!
Good to hear you were in charge of the Wheelie house
Lovingly your Aunty HiC

Feline Friday in Abstract 
can you see the kitty
called Pens and Paws,
I think every kitty needs eyes so I added buttons
I might embroider mouth before it is finished
I like this print; however, if I used it again I'll substitute a teal to replace the white to
give it a pop.

Both kitties have white heads, backs and a tucked tail.

Both will be added to a quilt in progress that will have samples of all the
blocks I have learned.


  1. it is amazing what things we can discover when we travel with a wheelie house! I love the cat ideas, wish I could do something beautiful too... oh lord why I'am the girl with the 10 thumbs? LOL

  2. Bertie wants to know if Kat and Pup spotted any dinosaur footprints in the Jurassic sandstone?

  3. Such beautiful scenery and colours. It reminds me of when we went through Zion National Park.

  4. The red rocks are just beautiful and that sheep has some serious horns!
    Your kitty quilt is going to be gorgeous!

  5. Probably not a good place for kitties, so good you could stay home. We would love to see those sheep.

  6. Love the video. Cool place.

    Look at you go with your quilting. Very neat kitty blocks.
    Have a happy weekend. Monday is a State holiday for me.

  7. Your quilts are always amazing! That's one mighty scary sheep.

    What a beautiful drive - reminded me of Australia's 'red centre'...

    Those kitties are interesting... Miss C, are you aware that you are doing PATCHWORK... QUILTING is the sewing of a thread pattern through all the layers of a blocked counterpane? Have you been learning to do that too? It can quite change the appearance of the work! YAM xx

  9. the red rocks are gorgeous, the drive facing traffic on that narrow road is not my thing to do, I rather watch tv with Kat... I don't see a cat on the quilt square, not even where the buttons are.. I just wish I could sew a hem on t-shirts..

  10. My peeps would love to drive on that road through the red rocks! Amazing!

  11. Kat's Mom and Dad are sure seeing a lot of interesting and beautiful things... and landscape. Kat's little white feet make me want to kiss them! Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt!

  12. Lovely kitty, great video and fun quilts!

  13. Kat and his family sure are enjoying their western adventure. I love the cat quilt block and can't wait to see how you put them together.

  14. What a beautiful place, thanks for sharing it with us. That quilt is going to be amazing!

  15. We sure are enjoying the Kat and Pup adventures and we are a wee bit jealous. That quilt is sure gonna be super cool!

  16. We're all having fun traveling along in the wheely house. Kat is so precious.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hug to your auntie. ♥

  17. I love the cat quilting projects- you are so talented. XO

  18. Gosh, that blue, blue sky against the red rocks!
    I want a kitty quilt now!

  19. I LOVE these! What fun to see and think of!!

  20. kat....tell dad ta slow down...himz gonna get a speedin tickit drivin 120 like that ;)

    C; as always, the quilts are awesome ~~ ☺☺☺♥♥♥

  21. Gorgeous scenery, though I felt I was on the wrong side of the road.... Kat made the right decision, don't think he would have enjoyed the ride.

  22. I love those quilts. It did take me some time to find the cat in the first one though. But eventually I cottoned on. *Sigh* I think I will stick to knitting...

    Klem, Mara

  23. Red rocks are one of Mama's favorite nature creations! We really like your kitty square!
