Hey Pals,

It's me Ruby & boy am I glad I'm not living outdoors anymore. It has been getting very cold here in Iowa. It sure is nice & toasty taking naps in the sunroom window.

My poor wild outdoor buddy Scuby still shows up daily for food. He is finally getting tame around Mama, Butchy & Snickers. Mama is hoping to get him tame enough to take him up to the Waverly Pet Rescue so that they can find him a furever home. Mama hates to see Scuby outdoors for the winter. He is pretty small like I am.

Today I decided I need some new skills. You know, like Snickers. She is now a nurse & gets to help Dr. Snitchybug out with surgeries. She also gets to go visit her pals when they are sick or recovering from surgeries to nurse them back to good health.

So....................I decided to learn how to sew so that I can help out Mama when she makes the pet beds.

First I learned all about the NU-Foam that she uses in the pet beds.

I even hopped inside of the box to check the foam out first paw, tee hee. I also napped on it to test out the cushiness.

Next I had to learn about the fabrics & how to inspect the cut pieces.

Hmmmm, then I decided I better test out the softness of the foam again....

Ahhhhhhhhh, soft enough to nap on............

This is Sleepy Sewing Ruby signing off.

Purrs & Licks,

Hi Ruby, you look just a tad bit spoiled with all those great napping spots! Hope you are keeping warm!

Joe Stains said...

Bed Tester sounds like an even better job than sewing!! Why didn't I think of that?!

Amber-Mae said...

Ruby, you sure are lucky & so is Sylvester! If your hoomans didn't adopt you both, you two might turn into kitty popsicles! Hee!

That's really nice that you get to help Dr. Snitchybug! We hope Scuby gets a new home soon, too! We hope he doesn't have to spend the winter outside while you and Sylvester get to be all warm and cozy inside the house! Hey, maybe he could just move in with you too. What's one more kitty kat? Oh, yeah, then the doggies would be outnumbered. Can't have that!
