My little devil....

Which little devil could that be?
Well her real name is “Samantha”, but fondly called “Sam”. It isn’t that we planned on calling her by her nickname, it’s just she’s always in trouble, who has the time to yell out Samantha when she’s getting into anything and everything.

Even as a very tiny kitten, she was well known at the veterinarians. It was time to take her back to have her surgery stitches checked, they were the new super-glue type, and guess what, Sam had decided on day nine to start licking them, so she had to have the real thing, more stitches, more recovery. That was the day the vet tech said, don’t worry, we’ll always remember Sam, she’s one of a kind…”She’ll always be a kitten”

Well, she loves my beads, wire, everything…She even helps me with my photograph, if I want her to or not, which usually is not. She seems to have the expertise of locating great finds, and of course borrowing them. Sam doesn’t really want that single bead, she wants the whole completed piece. She almost always waits until you either have your back turned or even better yet, late at night, she loves borrowing things. Often I’m awakened during the night, to hearing her taking what ever it is she wants, she has the habit of dropping them to the floor, which I hear, which is what woke me up, but off she goes, and sometimes it’s days before I finally find the missing item.

I have found it necessary to lock up the family jewels, well maybe not the family jewels, but all my under constructions projects. Nothing like getting up for a glass of tea, and returning to find something missing. I know I made 10 wire wrapped beads, but I only have 9, am I have another senior moment…know Sam’s been here, my little devil….Life is never dull…

I wouldn’t trade her for the world….

This photo was taken with my phone camera. I can't tell you how many photos I've taken of Samantha, very few ever turn out, she just doesn't hold still long enough for me to get a great photo. Most are just a big blur.

When our 17 year old cat passed away, I got Sam. I have owned cats for more than 60 years, and Sam is the first real pip, never a dull moment with her in the house

My cat Tucker loves to hang out with me when I try to create too. He likes to lay on whatever I am making, I think he just wants my attention. Samantha is very cute!

Sam has actually stopped hanging out, aka; in the middle of everything. Maybe it's because I'm not currently working with fine wire. But when I came home from work today, she had borrowed more components, I had to find them so I could complete my necklace. I've even started writing done how many components I've made, so I know if I'm missing something. Love to see a picture of Tucker
