WOYWW/ As The Fur Flies


If you saw my desk in it's secretive state, I would have to kill you because you would know things!  lol  I will just have to keep my secret a little while longer of what I have made. Instead, I left evidence behind of what I have done without giving it away.  I also left out a current book that I am reading.  I have only read 2 chapters, but it is proving to be a good read.

Remember what was on my desk last week?  I had those trees cut out and the backgrounds that I was going to put away, but not before I got an ATC made from one of them. 











It reminded me to cut some starts off of the pussy willow tree. One can never have too many cats or pussy willows!
Here are the pussy willows I took a photo of a couple of days ago.  Unfortunately they never last long so I am enjoying them while I can.  Love their little gray toes!











Oh and remember dear Azlan laying on my cutting mat last week?  Cats should never lay on cutting mats for long, cause you just never know what might happen!
OH NO!

 He was severely matted!(Don't you just love play on words?) lol

Poor kiteh, we had to have him shaved.... or did we?
It just seemed coincidental that I happened to have this book that my sister recently sent to me and I was in need of cat supplies....er I mean craft supplies. lol


I use to craft with the kids when they were younger, but since they are grown and gone, I will have to just take advantage of making things with our dear kitties.
 There are dangers though.
There are people that land their cats in therapy!

It went like this:


Gracie:"Howz come youz  hyden, Azlan?"

Azlan: " Some onez  stolez my coat and I iz so scarez and em-bare-ASSed.  Remember what happen to the three little kitenz who lost their mittnz? They had no pie!  Whatz gonna happenz to mez?  Therez more than piez at STEAK here! "

Gracie:  "Itz awrite buddyz, Onez time I got in troublez and I still gotz fedz."
Fritzie: "Wanna know a secret?  I think you are still sexyz!"






Fritzie "Don't worry it will grow back.  You still haz handsome tailz!  No, reallyz!  "





Azlan:  "I'm too sexy for my tail.... too sexy for my tail.....too sexyz..... on the cat walk.....I shakes my little tush on zee cat walk...."



"I  iz goin'  to self estemez classes.......
"I iz handsome, I iz specialz,  I iz im-paw-tent!"




I IZ still kingz  who looks like a fox!
Mom sayz she's gonna makes me sumptin' wiff my furrs and to tell you that there are many more reads with Julia and others at WOYWW.
P.S.  Everyone is still eligible for the Blogiverary prizes from my last post until the 28th.

Oh, poor kitty having to be shaved, I wonder if his hair will grow back curly? Can't wait to find out what your secret is.......Regards, Anne #27

Good luck with stuffing whatever you are stuffing with cat hair. Never thought I'd type that sentence

Aww paw Azlan, he must be chilly, poor little mite.

I’m lucky that BoJangles has a short coat and would like to be brushed 24 hours a day if I could spare the time. I’ve wasn’t aware you could craft with cats fur so will be waiting with baited breath to see what master pieces you make. May be you could spin it into yarn and knit Azlan a new coat.


Happy Crafting!

Oh poor kitty! I've never heard of a cat being shaved before, but hey, you needed supplies! He does still have a majestic look about him. Love that card off to the left on your desk, with the splash of red on it, and the tag is beautiful too. It felt so good to be outside again and not be all bundled up, I'm hoping to start tidying up the garden a bit in the evenings this week.

Hugs

Lou said...

Awwww he is still a cutie, his conversation made me smile, never even heard of crafting anything with cat fur so can't wait to see what you come up with, we have 2 long haired moggies who often get matted one runs when he sees the brush and comb the other lays on the floor with his paws in the air ready for a brush!

Twiglet said...

Aw poor little cat - it doesn't look quite right does it. It will soon grow back I suppose. It certainly looks like an Aslan tho. x Jo

Peggy Cain said...

Sam said...

OMG! I am sitting in my office having a sneek peak and in fits of giggles laughing at your post! Brilliant! I am going to have to show my pussy lover friend this posting - hope you don't mind.
Thanks for your visit earlier. Yes my desk has a glass top on it and I bought some Really Useful trays to put my tools in. When it is clear you can see a vinyl decoration which I did on my Silhouette too - not that it is clear that often! Good ole' Ikea ey!!

Sara S. said...

Oh, poor kitty! Your Aslan has the same coloring and "poof" as my Angel, and that fluff is so hard to keep from matting!

ScrappnBee said...

Lois said...

IHello Wanda.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog an leaving your kind words. They are very much appreciated!
OH my goodness.
I am not sure if I should laugh at or cry for Azian.
Isn't he cold?
Mind you with his tail looking like that, the other kitties have a new toy to chase and swat at...LOL!
Your book looks very interesting, the novel I mean.
I think I will keep an eye out for it at the thrift store. I hate paying full price for books.
Your book on cat hair crafting looks interesting. It looks like a real hair razor.(pun intended)
Good luck with all your future hairy situations.
I could go on forever with these extensions but I will stop before you cut me off...hee...hee.
Thanks for sharing with us all.
I'll be back, unless I am having a bad hair day...sorry couldn't resist...take care.

Anonymous said...

I read that book on my Nookcolor e-reader. It's a fun read!
Ohhhh, poor Azlan. He must be sooooo embarrassed. We had to shave one of my mother-in-law's Lhasa Apso's once and the poor thing would just lie on the floor with her paws folded in front of her chest to cover herself! I hope he recovers soon! Hugs, Charmion

Pam said...

You are too funny. I'm sure even your cats are laughing at your story.

Kathryn said...

HAAAAAA!!!! Thanks for that! I too love the cat comics! Could write a few for my two female felines. Aren't the the best?!?!
Thanks for your comment on my altered thingy. Appreciated it! I will follow you as well.
I saw that book in the store last weekend and almost bought it. Love the pictures! Creepy but cool. Kinda reminds me of the HBO series "Carnival" (Babylon episode-shudder) Look forward to your review of it.
Hugs!

That was just sooo funny, but look at your poor cat ... I sure hope that lovely coat grows again. Your book looks an interesting read - I may look out for that title when I'm browsing next. Many thanks for popping in and leaving me a comment. Have a great weekend. Elizabeth x #11

Sue said...

Well all's fair in love and crafting lol. My cat's quite often covered in glitter and embossing powder but I've never shaved her! Saying that I do need to clip her around her love handles, she can't quite seem to get her tongue to reach around here any more lol x

Linda said...

I just love your kitties. They are adorable. I also loved your ATC.
