Ara Insists on Old Lady Pettings.
When one telecommutes and one lives with cats, certain understandings come with the territory. One of them being you will get bugged by cats wanting to be petted. The thing that amazes me about this video is that Ara is 16, she’s never happy doing any extra work, but she will go to great lengths to get me to pet her.
Brent Weeks (via victoriousvocabulary)
This is one of many reasons why you should never hesitate to write what is in your heart. Someone, somewhere, will connect to it, no matter what you write. You may have a thousand critics, but you will have one fan, and you may have changed the world to that one person, so isn’t that worth the criticism?
No, writing is not easy. It’s damned hard. But it’s worth it. (And you can change writing to “create something” if you create something besides the written word, of course.)
This is also why Brent Weeks is one of my favorite authors. :)
No Tag Backs in Cat Tag says the Rule Master.
Gordon insists on following every rule with cat tag, including no tag backs, even from humans. He made up the rule himself about two seconds before he got tagged because he didn’t want to be “It.” Probably because he wanted to relax, doesn’t he look like he’s about to kick back and slouch out all Jabba the Hutt style?
But no, we’re playing tag right now, and that means play time. Until Gordon instigated the “No Tag Back Rule,” that is. Sigh. What a way to ruin our fun, Gordon.
New listing! This is the Earth ring I needle felted, it’s currently up on Etsy. It’s awesome! The ring is super comfortable, really cute, and as always, one of a kind.
More details of the ring can be found on the Etsy page, including how to purchase the ring. Of course if you want more or other planets, you can request them! I made a Jupiter one that I am going to list soon too!
Jimmy Enjoying the Sun
It’s Sunday, so I thought it was appropriate that Jimmy should enjoy the sunshine. This is a picture I had some fun altering to make it look more artsy. I think it came out making him look really fluffy. I was having fun with my phone settings! He looks so pretty when he stares up into the sunshine, I have to say. He’s such a gorgeous kitten!
Cat-thulu Rises from the Depths Of the Bed..
Oh no! What are we going to do! Pet it, of course. Kendall makes a good cat-thulu. It makes sense, she is our actress cat, so slipping into the role of evil octopus monster from the depths of the ocean wouldn’t be a hard role for her to play. She can play any role. She is that good of an actress. So when asked to play Cat-thulu and rise from the depths of the comfie bed so she could claim our spots on the pillows, she sighed, but went ahead and put on her make up and took on the role like a professional.
Old and Beautiful
Ara being miss priss with her dainty paws hanging off my pillow, but she’s got her old eyes and long droopy whiskers. She’s showing her age, but in a regal way. Her soft paws rub my head and she purrs in my ear every night, but I think on the purple pillow, she thinks she’s a queen!
Look at dat foot!
That foot! It’s so cute! Cheri’s got adorable toes, but she’s pretty scared of showing off her paws because she’s afraid no one will like them. I think her back tooties are cute because her foot pads are black and so is the fur, but only on her paws pads. Plus, if I tickle her toes, she stretches them out really wide and then attacks my fingers lightly to bring them to her face for chin scratchings. She’s too cute!
Sleepy Jimmy Jammies
He likes the shelf I put up on the wall and has decided that it’s a great place for a nap now. I think it’s adorable because Jimmy always sleeps with his head hanging off the edge of the shelf just a tiny little bit. I think he knows how cute it makes him, and he’s a total schmooze for being adorable. He’s not even a year old yet and he already knows the business of stealing hearts.
Samara Morgan - The Ring Girl keychain!
Needle felted Samara from the Ring movies made into a little keychain. She’s got a waterlogged dress, and an evil looking face. Her long black hair hangs heavy over her body.
She can be purchased on my Etsy store! Handmade, of course!
Shhh, Cheribears is hiding!
Gordon really likes the cat tower, but Cheri snuck onto the lower shelf so she could look outside. Scaredy Cheri was very quiet and kept her profile very low the entire time so she wouldn’t wake the sleeping Gordon.
Gordon was completely out and wasn’t going to wake up at all. He’s still sleeping, a few hours later.
Max, the dramaticat
I stare past the window glass. A bird at the feeder. It eats, shall I eat it? No. No. I am house cat.
Not free to hunt birds.
Yet, hungry, no more. Stare at birds. Remember their taste. Taste them no more.
But bleed no more! Hungry never again!
And canned food… it is delicious.
And my human knows my favorite flavor is chicken.
Max the Fast Eater AKA Why won’t anyone share their food?
Max loves canned food. This has been well established in our house. When I give the kitties canned food, I always give him a little extra because I know how fast he eats… Yet this still happens all the time. The other cats are eating, some have just started to eat… and Max is already done with his bowl and looking at me all sad because there’s no more food! Then he’ll start trying to sniff everyone else’s bowl and get into their food to sneak a few bites! It’s cute and terrible. If some cats need rehab for boxes, he needs rehab for gooshy food. :D
All Sales of Kitties Are Final Sold As Is
Kitties will be your companions for life, so choose carefully. Upon receipt of a cat, know that they cannot be exchanged for next year’s model, or upgraded at any time. Refunds are not given simply because your kitty “no longer matches your furniture.” No. Cats are your forever friends. You cannot expect that to be anything but a transaction that lasts a lifetime.
