The painters have taped heavy brown paper over our carpet and tile to protect them while they are re-painting.
Our cats are absolutely LOVING this!
Normally Tiggie visits the litter box (see in far back ground) each morning, and then gallops madly around the house for a few minutes.
Thundering cat paw sounds on carpet are louder than you would think they would be.
Cat paws pounding on brown paper it is practically deafening.
Right now the boys are enjoying the mother of all brown paper bags.
traumatize the cats.
We were wrong.
As long as there is brown paper to race around on, they are totally happy.
(I think it is because they are boy cats, and you know how boys are: they love the sound of loud cars and motorcycles and such. The sound they make on the brown paper is like a cat version of gunning a hot rod!)
And because I need something to settle my nerves, I'm posting this sketch by Carl Larsson of his beloved wife Karin.
Isn't that veil wonderful?
It wasn't until a few years ago the I realized some hat veils were designed to be worn against the face.
It is a very unsettling look in real life, especially if you haven't ever seen anything like it before.
Wonder if this look will ever make a come back in my lifetime.
I'll wear it now, if you will...
