My beautiful cats bring me so much joy, they are an endless source of amusement, and they cheer me up when I’m sad. All this however, comes at a price. I have had to accept that I may never again wear an outfit, without it being covered in cat hair.
My cats are very pretty, Lori has a tummy like a tiger, and Tilly has the softest coat I have ever had the pleasure to stroke, but their fur looks a lot better on them than it does on me. It’s got to a point now where their hair seems to have become woven into the very fabric of my wardrobe. I’ve tried washing garments, hoovering them, the old sticky tape trick, all to no avail.
I guess I have to accept that I will forever more be instantly recognisable as a crazy cat lady.
Look at them, butter wouldn’t melt.
The other day I blogged about the new craftroom set up which Mr Monster had sorted out for me. Today I finally have the chance to lock myself away and make use of it. It is immense and I’m sure my work will benefit from having such a lovely workspace.
The cats love the new studio too!
Like most of us ladies, I would happily admit that I love bags and shoes, and if I’m honest it’s because there’s no chance of them making my bum look big. As it turns out, my two pretty little girl kittens Lori and Tilly are no exception to the accessories rule.
Ever since we got them at 8 weeks old they have been obsessed with shoes, climbing in them, climbing on them, chewing them and generally doing a lot of kitty type pouncing behaviour in the shoe cupboard.
The new thing seems to be bags, plastic ones, paper ones, rucksacks, laptop cases – all bags will be sought out and thoroughly sat on or in. Lori in particular has a penchant for Primark carrier bags and so I dutifully go clothes shopping on a regular basis to keep up with the demand. She also managed to narrowly avoid abduction by one of Mr Monster’s guitar teaching clients when she climbed inside his guitar case during a lesson.
The upshot being that all our shoes have tiny holes in them and all handbags etc. are covered in cat hair, but they get away with it cos they’re so damn cute.
