I realize it's been awhile since I joined Annie at A Stitch in Time, where each week she shares a Friday Smile.
Some of you may remember this photo I shared a week or so back. To recap for those who didn't see it, the cat bed and two mice were given to Squiggles by my friend Sally. She said the boys would have to share the catnip mice.
Feeling sorry for Bleubeard, I gave Squiggles the purple cat collar and Bleubeard the blue small dog collar, since his head and neck are so big in winter. I also gave Bleubeard the catnip pillow. I thought they made nice Christmas presents.
Yesterday, Bleubeard and I slept later than Squiggles since both of us were up all night. When I came out of the bedroom
this is the sight that hit me square in the face. I knew it wasn't Bleubeard because he and I had shared the bed behind closed doors, while Squiggle was sleeping in the office.
Contrary to what some believe, I don't sleep with a gun OR a camera under my pillow. But the camera was on the nightstand, so it didn't take me long to retrieve it. As for the gun, that's a story for a different day.
As I got closer, I realized what I was looking at. Not only had he torn into the throw rug,
he had also torn into the small catnip infused pillow I had gifted to Bleubeard. You might even be able to see some of the green bits of catnip still infused in the batting.
I decided I would do something nice for Bleubeard to make up for Squiggles attacking the catnip. Not sure what it will be yet, but I'll make it up to him. I hope Squiggles enjoyed making this mess, because I was the one who had to clean it up!
On the bright side, as this trash was sitting on my dining room table, I realized it would make great art fodder. So I removed the batting and added it to my "found objects."
Let's join Annie and begin the weekend with a Friday Smile.
