Inktober Day 11

Standard

Yesterday my critique group, Tuesday’s Children, went out to eat to celebrate our friend Judy’s seventy-ninth birthday. The conversation wandered to Inktober, and my friend, coincidentally named Kitty (who is a major cat lover) suggested (twice) that I needed to draw a cat. I want to lure Kitty to my blog, so here is a kitty for Kitty:

Dogs Would be Better Off if They were More Like Us Cats

In response to the Daily Post prompt: inscrutable.

anusha-barwa-428445

Why do you beg? Have you no dignity?
If the humans forget to feed you, scold.
And when they do feed you, don’t be in such a hurry to eat.
Turn up your nose. Walk away.
Come back later when no one’s around to watch.
Otherwise they think they’re doing you a favor.

And when they tell you to fetch or roll over or shake
Turn up your nose. Walk away.
Why work so hard to earn their approval?
Humans are inscrutable. Always making demands. Ignore them.

Don’t make such a big deal when they come home.
Turn up your nose. Walk away.
Why weren’t they here waiting on you?
Whose special—them or you?

You have to go out in all kinds of weather.
Why don’t you use the litter box?
Outdoors is best viewed from the windowsill.

The Cat’s Meow

The Cat’s Meow

We’re visiting Etsy today, that great online marketplace where you can find something for anyone, even the crazy cat lady in your life. Today’s focus is cat jewelry. I selected only items that I would be happy to wear. (By the way, feel free to buy me any or all.)

No feline-loving female should have to live without a cat necklace. (Click the description for more information. Click the images to see enlargements and captions.)

Stylized cat. Seated cat. Origami cat face.

Gold cat. Hanging-by-tail cat. Pick-a-stone cat.

Folded cat. Teeny cat. Art cat.

Stretching cat. Hanging-by-paws cat. Sleeping cat. 2D cat.

No self-respecting cat lady is happy unless her earlobes are decorated with cats.

Ceramic studs. Mismatched cats. Ceramic dangles.

Bracelets for cat lady wrists:

Basket cats. Denim cat.

And I don’t know why, but this one reminds me of the Deathly Hallows symbol:

And finally, a ring that can be made to your catty specifications:

As I said earlier, I like ALL of these pieces, but my very favorites are the origami cat face and the art cat necklaces.

What about you? Do you like cats, or live with some? (We currently have two, but have owned as many as four at one time. Five of our former kitties have passed on.) Does any of this jewelry particularly appeal to you? Share in the comments below.
