Jasper and Pounce

We usually share our lives up and downs on our blogs.
One I did not share because my heart was broken was my Boots passed away in November.
I was devastated, how could I not be.....
He slept with me every night on my pillow holding my hand and always greeted me when I came home from work with a kiss. 15 wonderful years.

But then I saw this on my friends blog

a little homeless kitten brought to her to bottle feed.
I adopted him the minute I saw the picture.
He was still too young for me to get so I had to wait.
The same time Tete got him one of her foster cats had kittens.

About 2 weeks ago she posted this picture.
She asked on FB if away was interested in adopting him.
He was the last from the takers.
How could you not fall in love with THAT face!?
Yep, I said he can come home with Jasper.
If you have followed me, you may remember I had 2 cats, Boots and Pinky.

So last Saturday I got the privilege of finally meeting Tete in person, her family, her furry family and touring her beautiful yard.
Jasper and Pounce came back to 1515 with me.
They were so good.

used the liter box and ate right away.

they played and explored

then much to my happiness they both jumped in my lap and took a nap.
True bliss for me.

I can see Jasper is going to help with my blog posts!

never heard a peep out of the all night.
But finally it was Pounce getting me up, Come on Mom!

Jasper pretty much hangs out where every I am

Only with me 24 hrs but seem happy,,,,and relaxed!

Then it was time to load up to take them home
They slept the entire 2 hours, not saying a word.
We showed them to Greta who barked, and Jasper growled and Pounce was shaking.
Oh no! It is going to take time, Greta is much bigger than Tete's puppy.
Greta and Boots were great buddies and these guys will at some point to.

So for now they are in the guest room

playing and exploring

My neighbor and dog sitter has been checking on them while I am at work.
She is a cat person and her last cat just died, I thought maybe she would want Pounce but now I am glad she wasn't  ready.

they are just adorable.
Pounce I think has the perfect name, he is always Pouncing.
I let them out today and he was so funny going down the stairs, but brave.
He is going to be the Alpha I think, we shall see
Jasper I think is my lap cat.
Tete did such a good job with them You can even hold them and tell them to go to sleep and they will.
I was just holding Jasper and Pounce got jealous.
Oh how I love it.

Welcome home to Jasper and Pounce!!!!

Watering Can Collection

I have been addicted to watering cans for years. You can tell by the line up on my bench 
on my header.
I even brought one back from Paris a few years ago in my luggage!
Some I use others are for looks
Here are a few from cottage. 

2 of my favorites, a German one with long neck and the green chippy paint one.

I have never seen one again like this one, makes me think of morning glories.

my cousin is building a "she shed" and I thought she was going to remove this little kitty cat from mine to hers!

Many are children's, love the gardening theme on them.

some are a little rusty, but I don't care

some are small

many probably watered African violets or houseplants on a wide windowsill

love the lines on this one
Many of the ones with the lithograph pictures are made by Chein

I don't think this one was ever used

I think I paid more than 59 cents!

they sit among my flower pots by McCoy, USA I have collected over the years.

Some were meant for gardening, like the Han-D Sprinkle Can

Time to head out to the garden.
It is a beautiful day here today.
Hope your Sunday is beautiful too.
