I intend to annoy you...

I swear intention for illustration friday would work for almost every piece of art I've done.  I almost picked my Snow White self portrait where a gorilla (instead of a witch) is handing me a poison apple.  The title would have been, "I intend to kill you..." The stuff of childhood nightmares.  At least for me!  But I decided on a cat illustration.  What else could I possibly choose?  No one else in this world intends to annoy me more than my cat Hana.  (pictured)  And my illustration Dessertus Interuptus  is no joke.  She has landed some blows that have dislodged the food right off my plate. She'll act all coy while sitting on my lap.  Then...

 (Imagine a Kitty thought bubble)

 " Purr, purr.  I'll just act contented.  Purr, Purr."  Hana's head jerks.  "Is that a bird outside?  Purr, purr."  Hana glances sideways.   "Purr, purr."  Hana licks her tail.   "Purr, purr, purr purr, purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..."WHAP! 

Dessert Interception completed.  Then Mom loudly swears her secret go to phrase. No hints. She is just lucky she is so darn cute.  Because you don't mess with my desserts if you know what is good for you. 

 One time I was out to dinner with some friends at the Cheesecake Factory.  And they all split 2 kinds of cheese cake.  I abstained.  I decided to take home a piece to savor the next day.  It was a piece of key lime cheese cake to be exact.  It looked delicious.  I couldn't wait to eat it the next day.  So 12 hours later I open the fridge and what do I find?  Over 1/2 of my one stinking piece of cheese cake had been lopped off.  WHO DID THIS TRAVESTY?????  Well it's just me, the cats and my husband where I live.  And let's just say I can't blame this incident on the cats.  Can you say doghouse?  Dessertus Interuptus indeed!

Isn't it awful to have our desserts intercepted!?!

It's hard to read a story where dessert crimes are being committed, but I persevered! Such a great illustration, nearly realistic but with extra cuteness (if that's possible.) Neat touch with Tom and Jerry back there!

LOL, at the moment I can't even THINK about food without Au, my oldest boy, sitting in front of me asking "Is that something nice for a pussy cat to eat?"
