Stripes (#bestcat) is a cat who loves to cuddle and in winter if there is a blanket to burrow underneath she is there. Most of the time this is terribly sweet and yes, I am so blessed to have such a loving companion to keep me going while I work, but occasionally when I am trying to work on something very complicated her persistence is not so welcome.
You see, somehow Stripes knows when a deadline is eminent, that’s when she insists on pushing all the pens and pencils off my desk, she then tries to curl up on my mouse hand and if that doesn’t work (which it normally doesn’t) she then tries to squeeze herself onto me lap (under my desk) and then as a final distraction she always insists on using my keyboard as a thoroughfare – without fail managing to activate all sorts of weird Photoshop setting that I simply cannot turn off… yikes!
So in an attempt to maintain peace in our house I have been shopping about for cute cat hideaways. I found a few really gorgeous felted examples and may well have to place an order soon.
