Minor Cat Disasters

I tell you right on my header that I always relate my illustrations and my photos. Well, luckily I painted a cat peaking out of the doghouse on my last post. It gives me a great excuse to talk about my naughty pets. And after seeing these photos, you'll probably understand why I might want to unleash some animal frustrations. Just look at that innocent face in the first photo. Hana decided to take my purse on a little joy ride that evening. She also likes to chew on the leather straps towards mealtime. It's her way of letting me know she's getting hungry. Then there's Acua (alias chewy) His weakness is paper products. In the next photo we were having pizza in front of the T.V. And you can see what happens when you forget to put the paper towels away. Can you believe he did all that damage in the time it took us to eat one slice! The next photo reveals a little collateral damage from an all out cat chase. They can really put the paws to the metal sometimes. Now here's a real winner. When we got back from vacation we found there had been a few shenanigans going on in the basement bathroom. That's a whole box of kleenex on the floor in the middle of a broken container. And lastly, I'm so proud of my Acua. Look at his artful arrangement of kleenex pulled from the box. Nowadays the kleenex is safely stashed in the closet. On a top shelf mind you!

All I can say is, OH MY! You have some sassy kitties, I think. At least they have given you plenty of artistic pictures, huh? I love that innocent look in the first shot!

oh, they are so cute, Sharon! Look at the purse-snatcher looking up at you with those reproachful eyes: "I didn't do anything!" I love the one still looking in the tissue box with your standing right there! There's always one! And the very last picture looks like a collage: you could have it glued and framed! Beautiful, mischievous cats! (p.s.: did you paint in the bamboo bars in the fourth photo?) xx

Hi Sha, I don't know if I will laugh or not. They might be a little naughty but they are just curious about the content of the box. Look at them aren't they cute?

Honestly...they made me laugh.

They are mighty mischevious little things, arn't they. When the moms away, the cats will play (or make a mess)

Awwww, just look at those faces. I love it when cats are naughty (well, except for the cleaning up after their messes). The stories and pictures are usually pretty funny.

SHARON! Those cats are a menace. Cute too. Dang.

Great art! I haven't looked in quite some time. Nice animals. Love the photos of the raccoon too!

Cats can always look innocent, no matter what they've done. One time a coworker and I were returning from a overnight trip. I had left my car at her house so when we got back to her place I asked to use the bathroom before driving home. Her kitty had unrolled a full roll of toilet tissue, shredding it as she went. It looked like a snow storm had hit her bathroom. The cat just looked at us and meowed.
