Me and My Mini Me!

  Hi my furiends! It's Cody! 

A few weeks back, an auction was held for "The Baby" from The Katnip Lounge, and I was the incredibly LUCKY, highest bidder of greeting cards that were created by Lisa-Lin from the blog Noir's Nook.  During the same auction, my Mom also bid on something really special and she was the highest bidder on this item too! Wait til you see! First, a little background info:

For many months, Mom would be reading blogs and noticed that many of the woofies and kitties had adorable crocheted items called "Mini -Me's."  A "Mini -Me" is a crocheted replica of a doggy or kitty,  they are made by a special furiend of ours named Lynne over at the blog, Sketching With Dogs.

Mom was smitten and promptly ordered one of Dakota that Mom adores! When Mom saw that a Mini Me was being offered at the auction, she HAD to enter! When the package arrived, Mom was ecstatic, I was curious.

For all of my 7 years Mom  always promised me that there would  be NO CATS invading my space. She was true to her word, and I was thrilled. Then what happens? See for yourself!

"Who the heck are you???"
He looks just like me!

To make things worse, he would NOT
GO AWAY!!



Desperate times called for desperate measures!
I knew I had to have a talk with
the interloper!


We talked for hours................
Finally, we reached an understanding, and I decided that since he can't eat my food, that maybe he isn't that bad after all. It would be nice to have a kitty to talk to, as well as a back up to annoy my Sheltie brother, Dakota.



Maybe this guy wasn't half bad.

 After all, he looks just like me!!!



I can tell him all sorts of secrets!!! 

Maybe I will even put the "bitey" on  him, 

when Mom isn't looking of course!




It's me and Mini-Cody taking on the world!!!!

Thanks so much Lynne for making such a cute Mini Me!!!
If you want one too, for the time being Lynne is taking a break from making them, but she assured me she will be making them again soon!!!!!

    1. Yes Bev it is sooo beautifully made!! Nope, Mum just used her phone (as always), but this time the natural light was great, then she touched them up a bit on ribbet.com ((((hugs))) and love back at ya!

      Delete
    2. Miss Bev, I forgot to say, no worries about anymore "biteys" being put on him. Mom moved my furiend away with Dakota's for "safe" keeping....geeze, like I would hurt him or something! He and Dakota's mini "live" together on our hutch in the dining room. Little does Mom know, I can jump up there and still "visit" him if I choose to!

    1. Oh Marg they sure are! I LOVE THEM!!! It was my pleasure and I am thrilled that I was the highest bidder! After I had bought Dakota's, I KNEW that I wanted another. I am sure Lynne will go back to making them soon, she said she was just taking a temporary break from them. I was going to link to the Mini Me page on her blog but she removed it :(

  29. Ha! What an adorable idea and what a cute mini Cody!!

    Hi Caren, Thank you so much for stopping by Marshwood Cottage today. In answer to your concern about multiple posts in one email...I apologize. That was the result of me moving my entire former blog Cat of Nine Tales to my new blog address for Marshwood Cottage. That all took place over the weekend with today being my first official post for the new blog Marshwood Cottage. We are all caught up in time now so in the future you should only get an email notice with one single post. There will be one (and only one) for tomorrow!! Hope to see you then!

      You are most welcome!!!
      You know what, I APOLOGIZE...after I wrote that comment asking, I saw that you mentioned you were moving the blog. What a jerk I am!! I am sorry!!! I should have gone back and deleted my question, but I am so happy that you were kind enough to come and visit and give me a response. I will be reading your blog regularly!! ((((hugs))))

  31. How very cute but watch out for these stuffies and such. They’re nothing but trouble unless you can blame them for anything you do. MOL!

  32. A best buddy who doesn't eat your food? Ever? Your mini me is cool, Cody! :)

  33. I don't really think it's fair to bitey him when he can't bitey back. Oh wait! That's the best part, isn't it?!
