I’m part of the Wellington Sewing Bloggers, a group of awesome Wellington-based (for the most part) women who sew, blog, and get together to eat cake, drink tea and talk about sewing and blogging.
For our latest get together, we outdid ourselves, with sewing, blogging, cake, tea, and KITTENS!
The Kitten Inn, a cat rescue charity, offers afternoon teas where you can play with their not-yet-adoptable kittens before and after your afternoon tea to help socialise them. ZOMG!
Your tea money supports a good cause, the kittens get used to lots of people, you get to play with kittens, and if you’re really, really lucky, you manage to get away without the firm and absolute conviction that you must come back as soon as the lot of kittens you played with is old enough to be adopted out, in order to snag one for yourself! 😉
Those of us who were kitten inclined had a wonderful afternoon of kitten playtime, kitten cuddles, tea, cake, more kittens, photos of kittens, wishing we could adopt all the kittens…
And, I’m sure you’re all thinking ‘that’s nice, now MAKE WITH THE KITTEN PICTURES’
Sewing bloggers featured are Kirsten of FiftyTwoFancies, Hvitr of Historical Living with Hvitr, and Nina of SmashTheStash (there were lots more of us, that’s just who happened to be at a convenient angle to where I was sitting as I snapped photos 😉 )
I’m sure your all wondering what Felicity made of this. She actually loves it when I come home smelling of other cats and kittens: it gives her something interesting to sniff and investigate.
Once she’s done sniffing, she wants a cuddle, just to be sure I love her best.
Yes Felicity, I love you best. No matter how old you get, you will always be my kitten!
