Hello! I am Linda Holton from Holton Handicrafts. I am partner to my hubby The Lathe Junkie, mother to two grown children, two fur babies, and four grandchildren. I love to craft and write and have a large variety of interests. On my blog I share with you my experiences and fun ideas for You, Your Pet, and Your Home with lots of other fun thrown in.

While I like all animals, I am a cat person. Not only a cat person but a crazy cat lady. I would own a herd of cats (guess that would be pride) if I could. Right now my "pride" consists of two very spoiled and adorable siblings, Tony and Tiger.
How could you not bring some these sweet faces
We got them a year ago, a few months after our 25 year old cat Boo went over the rainbow bridge. We wanted to adopt a ginger boy like our Mufasa who we lost the year before. After much searching we found Tiger. In the same cage with Tiger was another cutie that wanted to go too, that was Tony. Our surprise was when they went for their surgery, Tiger was found to be a girl not a boy. By that time we were in love with them and they were so bonded to each other that they both came home with us. Missy Tiger Princess and Tony Bug (for lovey bug) both found their furever home with us. You can check out their adventures on their Facebook page Tony N Tiger. They would love it if you liked their page when you stop by.
Vacation time is right around the corner and we love to camp. We have a pull behind RV so taking the kittens with us is an easy option. We are experienced with taking cats camping as we had to take Mufasa with us everywhere. He was
Checking out the tiny house
diabetic and needed insulin twice a day. He loved to camp and even camped in a tent as well as the pop up camper we used to have. We got Tony and Tiger used to traveling by getting them started in their carrier (a.k.a. their car seat) when they were little. Before Tony and Tiger's first trip, we spent time with them in the RV at home so they could get used to the new "tiny house". We have bunk beds so we were able to use one for their bed. When they were only 6 months old on their first trip we used a baby gate to keep them contained to their bed. Now that they are all grown up, we won't need to use the gate. Sine it has been several months since we have camped last, we will be spending more time in the "tiny house" before vacation.
Being the spoiled little kittens they are (and me being a crazy cat lady), I recently bought them this
In our new stroller ready for our walk
cute stroller made by Pet Gear. They like getting in and going for a walk. It folds down just like a toddler size umbrella stroller and is pretty heavy duty. It has a zippered screen on the front to keep them safe and secure. The manufacturer's instructions say this is a one pet stroller. These two were pretty cozy in this together so they may be taking separate walks.
Hope my kitten story has brightened your day. You can follow their vacation fun on Facebook.
