A Kitty Litter of Sally Cats

A Kitty Litter of Sally Cats
(A group of Sally Cats is called a Kitty Litter)

A Sally Cat is a micro breed of cat measuring three inches square. You may see them in any color of the rainbow and find them hanging out in Nine Patches living their nine lives. As you can see some are sweet and some end up in prison stripes; some are slightly dotty and some are snowflakes; some are tattooed all over and some are plain and simple.  By nature they are quarrelsome, have an aggressive and determined spirit and are feisty (aka scrappy).


I saw Sally's micro Sally Cat and asked her for breeding advice because I thought I might breed some to live in my oodles of  Nine Patches. She obliged.   Sally freely offers breeding advice for a  little larger variety of cat that I have seen popping up in red all over blogland.  The original Sally Cats that started it all live in a beautiful quilt. 


Can't wait to see what color I'll be breeding next month!

This post is hilarious!! Lol, I’m still laughing. As providence works, I have been waiting for a Great way to showcase a cat quilt for children for a donation quilt for our local police for a cruiser quilt. (I have a wild animal one all prepped to baste this weekend). The nine patch break up the cats nicely especially for a youth quilt. Love the idea and have a wonderful weekend.

Oh my, we love those Sally Cats, don’t we? What a great idea to pair them with their nine-lives-patches! That might help tame their free range nature. So clever!!!!! xo

I can just see a little girl loving that quilt! I hope when you donate it, you will put a copy of your first paragraph with it for her to keep and share with her friends. You might have to point out the nine patch/nine lives block in case she is too young to figure it out. It will be much loved I'm sure! ---"Love"

I just love your kitty litter of sally cats nestled in with their nine lives. And a great post to showcase them!

Hmmm...looks a lot like my house when I have quilt blocks on the floor. In any case, please quilt responsibly to avoid overpopulation.

That's the cutest tray of kitty litter I've ever seen. Sally is a sweetheart for sharing her design skills with all of us.

Such a clever story! Love the way you mixed the cats with their nine lives. And jailbird cats. Who’d have thought?

you LOVE those little blocks, don't you. How come no one makes doggy blocks? Just sayin. Love your litter.
xx, Carol

Great idea to alternate Alley cats with nine patch blocks. Nine patches represent the cat's nine lives I assume?

Louise said...

Ha ha! Nine lives patches indeed :)
