This is Lightning, isn't she so sweet? She's a little kitty that started showing up at my bf's parents' house a few weeks ago. His dad swore that the 2 cats they already have would be their last pets, but then this angelic face showed up and he was smitten. Can you blame him?
My bf and I tried to figure it out but we're pretty sure she's a girl. She's super shy so no one has been able to get too close to her without her hiding around a corner or ducking out of the way, but she's really inquisitive and loves to eat - a girl after my own heart! So we've been feeding her all sorts of goodies and she's getting bigger and bigger. We aren't really sure where she goes sometimes but I think she's starting to feel more at home as she's chosen 'her spot' under a tree in front of the house to lie in and stay cool. I still remember when she was so little and scared. She's a lot friendlier now, and is willing to come closer to you, especially when it's feeding time! Hee hee. I often find her at night just waiting on the doorstep, staring at me with her big green eyes. She's still a bit too shy to come into the house, but I got her to at least sit in the doorway. I snuck in a little petting when I fed her last weekend when we were there, but she wasn't too pleased, oops. Maybe one day!
I loved Lightning so much that I just had to re-create her into plushie form, complete with her big green eyes and the little patch of white fur on her chest.
I thought she came out great! After I made her, it happened to be close to my bf's dad's birthday so I made another one to gift to him since he loves this little kitten so much. It was great to give a handmade gift that went over so well! :)
And yes, I'm planning to offer Lightning in my shop so you can have your own Lightning plushie, too! I have a LOT of plushies to work on - my goal is still to try to open by mid-month. Lots of work to do but I appreciate everyone's patience and I know I'm excited. I hope you are, too :D
