Cat Thursday: Thimble Kitties

Cat Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by The True Book Addict, and celebrating "the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats." You can join the fun by posting a favorite LOL cat pic, famous cat art or even pics of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats!

I've already written about my mother's thimble collection (see my last Blue Monday post: A Wonderland of Thimbles) and warned everyone that they'd be seeing more of it eventually.  Well, eventually is here, folks -- because many of her thimbles featured cats, which makes them purr-fect for Cat Thursday.

Three ceramic thimbles

The one on the right is made of wood

And these are made of various metals.
That first one has a mouse around the other side.

These are only some of the kitty thimbles in her collection -- and she always claimed she didn't even like cats!  I'm saving the rest for a later post.  (I hear you shouting "Oh, goody, goody!")


  1. These are awesome!
    She is definitely a cat lover, admitted or not :]
    PS I am now following you!

  2. How fun! That's a lovely collection. My grandmother used to collect thimbles. I'm not sure what happened to them.

  3. These are beautiful! What a wonderful collection!

  4. Those are really neat, what a nice collection. :)

  5. How awesome...I love that and it's something one can collect that doesn't take up half a room! So cute!

  6. I like the top three the best and I remember the first one well. Actually, both our mothers became "cat ladies" as they got older. The hardest thing my mother had to do (she didn't HAVE to do it, she CHOSE to do it) was relinquish her cat before she moved here. The funny thing is, I didn't even know she "had" a cat, much less one she was attached enough to to fret over. Who knew.

  7. These are wonderful. There's something very warm about kitties and craft.

  8. These are wonderful! What a wonderful collection. You're right...I can't wait to see more!

  9. I suppose once you get one, people decide you collect cat thimbles and get gifts from all around.
