Inspiration Friday - Cats

Pretty Literal eh?

This is a ATC drawn for a Nervousness SWAP a year or so ago. His image became very popular with my daughter, neice and nephew who like to call him "Frazzled". I think he was up late last night finishing some crafty project or another, drinking WAY to much coffee and is at the point where one gets all giddy, giggly and twitchy. If you take a moment to stare into his eyes you'll find yourself getting very very sleepy...... zzzzzzzzz.


Ha Ha! Now that you are under my spell, you suddenly find you have the urge to smile to yourself, yawn contentedly and while you curl up on top of some sort of unfinished knitting project , a human will stroke your fur as you purr contentedly...

Oh, did I say that? I've been awake since 4:00 am because one 11 year old siamese wanted to sleep on my head purring and one 10 week old kitten (who is a purring machine) wanted to sleep on my neck while simultaniously bitting one 11 year old cat on the head. I'm tired and worn out (in a giddy, giggly sort of way) and said 11 year old spent from 5:00 on outside and said ball of Mischief was dumped unceremoniuosly into Lina's room with the door shut behind him. Unlike me, Lina can sleep through an earthquake. I figure Mischief is hers and she can deal with his fiestiness at 5:00 am better than I.

Moms who don't deal with sleep deprevation are such grumps!

I didn't get to post my craft room organization pictures yet (along with some other items) on Wednesday I ended up with 6 kids at my house due to the freezing rain (buses cancelled) so mid-afternoon, I couldn't concentrate on work any more and spent my time cleaning and working out on my bike. I will get them posted ASAP. Posted by Picasa

This is very cute.Looks like he might have put his paw in one too many sockets. I've go 3 cats and can really relate to your story.

This is wonderful! Made me smile as soon as I saw it. I've felt that way a couple of times myself. I've probably inspired this in my own cats. *G*
