Funny Adventures in Cat Adoption, Part Eight - Hubwriter Helper

Updated on June 5, 2014

Hubwriter Helper

It almost sounds like "Hamburger Helper," doesn't it?

Well, this is a short, blink of an eye hub featuring behind the scenes photos of my preparation of a hub on making corn husk dolls. It features my favorite little shelter-rescue buddy, Skeeter. His intellectual curiosity is infinite. So is his energy.

He thought he should either supervise or, at the very least, assist my photo shoot of doll making.

The "Rest of the Story"

Quality Control

If our Skeeter blesses it, it is a good thing!

Now, how can I keep him distracted?

      Yes - I love it. Their energy is like the flame of a candle. We are enriched by it, yet the flame is not at all diminished by our sharing its glow.

      Isn't their curiosity so adorable. My two cats played for a long time today with a potato peel I dropped on the floor. So easily entertained!

      And, my Punkin MUST come in the bathroom with me every time she hears the door close. They she jumps in the tub to play with the drain cover. When I'm done, she's done :)

      Lucky Cats, Skeeter is a perfect friend. He waits for us outside the bedroom or bathroom door. It is nice to be valued! How did God squeeze so much love and soul into cats?

      TruthforNow, I did not grow up with cats, so it is amazing how much I love them now! it is a joy to know our three cats, but hub readers can see that I take an extra shine to Skeeter. He chose us in February 92011) and life has been very dynamic ever since!

      Skeeter is an extremely beautiful animal and I bet a purrfect friend and companion. You have hit the nail on the head; cats are the most curious creatures..and their antics are always fun to watch. Doll making using corn husks? How cool! I love the photos; they're priceless.. Up Awesome and Beautiful!

      Ha Ha. My cat always likes to mess with me when I am trying to read and write by trying to sit on my books and grab at the pages. She likes to be involved in everything that I am doing. They are so curious aren't they?
