Clyde is our Treasured pet.

Clyde as a kitten.
Hello,

Welcome to Tuesday's Treasures. This week Melody has asked us to show of our pets. We have a cat that is called Clyde. He actually belongs to our daughter Bonnie. Now Clyde went missing from the Unit Bonnie was staying in when he was just a tiny wee kitten. The above photo is the one we made up for the posters we had put around to find him. We rang the vets etc but no word came of him. After a couple of weeks we decided to go to the vets because Bonnie had heard of a kitten being there. When we went in we asked if they had him,we showed the photo and they brought him out. He had been fixed up and sorted out. He had a few injuries where he had got caught up in his collar. Then they went and took down the sign that was asking for a new owner. He also went missing again from the same unit. We thought he was definatly gone this time. After the first time he went missing we had put on a name tag with our phone number. I received a phone call about three weeks later asking if I was missing a kitten. He had travelled about 3 to 4kms. I think he must have been picked up by children and dropped when they had finished playing with him. He had one tiny flea on him otherwise he was OK for a kitten who had been missing for so long.

He always manages to find the best spot to sleep.

Ian has the job of feeding Clyde. He just loves him and I can guarantee that as soon as Ian's ute comes home in the afternoon he will be at the back door to greet him. If he wants to get out at night time Clyde goes to Ian's side of the bed. It is quite funny how he now has to get up to the cat in the night. Makes up for all those times I got up to the children!!!

Clyde continues to bring joy to us everyday, along with a mouse or two that he has found.

Make sure you check out the other Treasured Pets at Melody's.

Happy days.

Clyde is a cutie! Funny how much these ute driving men love their cats! My husband is such a blokey bloke, drives a ute, and he just swoons over the new little kitten in our family!

His name is very appropriate - what a scallywag and certainly testing out his 9 lives!

Michelle Ridgway said...

Clyde is one "cool cat" Love Clydes story. Makes you wonder what his version would be if he could tell you?

What a very sweet cat. I wish my cat always went to DH side of the bed, unfortunately he never hears her.
Love your row by row quilt, it is gorgeous.

Pauline said...

Ahh, I think Lucky misses that cat. She gets on Chris' case about getting a kitten. He does sound like a proper character!

Lindi said...

Clyde is just adorable. What a little escape artist, do glad you got him back both times. He looks very content to be home now. Thank you so much for sharing him as part of Tuesday Treasures.

Hi Bev, your Clyde looks like a cat we once had, he was a Maine Coone cat and had such a personality..Take care

Sue said...

Well he really is a treasure seeing as how he was lost a couple of time and then found.
What a pretty cat:)

Rochelle said...

What a sweet heart. A very special treasure Clyde is indeed.
Reminds me of a dog my Pop had when I was just 4 or 5, a collie - his name was Clyde :-)
