CAT-CAPADES

Yesterday, one of the cats (Chloe) was up on the craft table trying to drink out of the water cup for my paint brushes. She managed to spill enough that many items had to be moved out of the way to mop it up. That's when I realized there was a tear in the plastic tablecloth. So I had to clear everything off the table, throw away the tablecloth, and dry out the wood. (It's still got a big water stain on it.)

Luckily, I had purchased a thick, flannel-backed tablecloth at a yard sale a few weeks back, so that went on it today. The table needed de-cluttering anyway!

As you can see, she tried to help me wrap my shoebox for Operation Christmas Child, too! I love this ministry, and look forward to it every year. Follow the link if you're interested in finding out more about it.

Cats and kittens are soooo helpful! Even if you don't need help. LOL

What is it about cats???!!! Mine get right on my drawing tablet, sleep on the beads, and snooze in the trims-and-laces box...argh!!!

Maybe Chloe has that habit of "pawing" at the water? That ends up with a knocked-over glass every time...

Oh Sue!
That Chloe, isn't she a hoot? She is very mischevious. I had a cat named Tiger that loved boxes too. He loved jumping up on things where I was working.

Chloe looks so precious in the box. That would make a lovely Christmas card cover.

Thanks for sharing sweetie. Made my evening. Country hugs...Sherry

Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful program. My kids always enjoy filling the boxes for it! :-)

Happy belated Birthday Sue! Chloe reminds me so much of our Sally!

Did your package arrive from Debbi? I think it should be soon.
