Stray Cats and Halloween deco!!

Over the last couple of months I've been feeding this cat at random with soft cat food. It used to come around every once and awhile. Last week, I decided to buy dry cat food. Now she comes around everyday! She looks pretty healthy so it makes me wonder if she really is a stray. She sure does get excited and eat a lot when I feed her though. In this picture, she wanted to come inside! What a cutie!
This is the other stray that comes around. I do think this one is defiantly a stray. It is skin and bones!!! I took this picture today, after feeding it for a week. It is starting to look a little bit bigger, but I think we still have a ways to go. If I had the money, I'd take them to the vet. and get them checked out. Alas, I'm a poor student.
This is one of my window's Halloween decorations. I guess I got a little excited for the holiday. Sorry the pictures is blurry. I wanted to try it to get a night shot, so the black lights would show up. After I took this picture, I made a giant spider web that I put behind the skeletons.
This is a close up of the window during the day.
Close up #2.

What I've been up to lately

I made this fish for Sabastian, my friend Anji's cat. I thought this pattern was so cute! The pattern put the eyes a little lower and the front fins in a slightly different place than I did. Gee.......I wish I would have looked at the pattern better. Up close my fish looks my like a weird orange creature with funny little legs. Ahhh well, I don't think the cat will mind. ;-)
I added a handle for my fish so it will be easier to play with the cat. (Pattern from I made my fish from simple soft yarn instead of microspun.
All of my amigurumi creatures so far. I did have one more....a of the stray cats I've been taking care of played with it a little the other day, and then took off like a bat out of hell. I guess he took it to his 'secret place.' I haven't seen it since. She sure looked cute with the little green turtle in his mouth!!!
I made this market bag for my summer vacation in August. I now use it when I walk to the video store and to Dollar general. I love this bag!
Now I am making a afghan for my boyfriend. The pattern is from "Knitting with Balls." When its done the pattern will look like a mock hounds tooth. You can sort of see it with these squares that I have ready.
