Rant & Rave
My new block kitties!
I shared a picture of my new kitties on Instagram but I just can't get over how cute they are! I've seen kitties like this before but I never even considered making them before because, well, power tools and I are long time enemies. Enter my awesome husband. He's more than just a pretty face. He has tools and the skills to use them! Not that cutting pointing ears into 2X4's is hard but if I was trying it, I might as well be disarming a bomb. So he cut the pointy ears and painted them and I picked out the smallest, beadiest googly eyes I could find and some cute Halloween ribbon and there you have it! Now my kitties are sitting on top of my fireplace where I can see them everyday and smile at their cuteness! My sister was so jealous I had my husband whip her up a pair. What do you think? Cute, right?!
Blue Jays. The outspoken, obnoxious, state the obvious bird I can't stand! I know, you think I'm crazy. Blue Jays are so pretty. Well, pretty is as pretty does and this stupid bird couldn't make it's self more ugly if it tried! Besides the irritating sound this dumb bird makes it has declared itself the neighborhood watch! It's like that nosy old neighbor you have that is constantly watching you and then calling so and so to tell them what you're up to. These annoying birds are all over in my yard and they think it's their duty to sit in a tree right above my cats and squawk to all the other birds and squirrels that there's danger, danger, danger. No kidding, you stupid bird! Every other bird and squirrel knows all about the the cat. They've been QUIETLY watching it long before you got here. I would imagine when the blue jays start screaming that there's danger, that every other bird and squirrel rolls it's eyes and mutters, "no shit, Sherlock" under its breath. Good grief! Even as I type this one is squawking about something! So, if you ever see me in my yard yelling obscenities and throwing rocks up into the trees, well, now you know why. Excuse me. A blue jay and I have unfinished business.
Your kitties after very cute! :) I like them a lot. And, ha ha ha about the bluejays!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Aren't they cute?Delete
Love love love the kitties! And agree about the bluejays! But I don't think they are just warning of danger. They are screaming at every other animal to go away and let them have all the territory. I totally think I saw one attack a robin and the robin fell to the ground dead, right out of our tree. And then I had to go and deal with its poor dead body. Ugh.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh! Seriously? Just another reason to hate those birds!Delete
I love the kitties! So simple and cute. How nice to have someone to cut wood on demand for you -- I need me one of those :)ReplyDelete
Here, it's the woodpeckers that drive us batty. They peck through the stucco on our houses and make a racket doing it. Plus, it freaks me out when I'm home alone and I hear loud, insistent knocking. Creepy. And irritating.
There's a few woodpeckers around here but not many. Birds in general can be quite annoying.Delete
Cute kitties! Me and crafts do not usually get along :). And I love that you are ranting about bluejays. We have ugly fat pigeons here.ReplyDelete
I don't do crafts either but these were too easy. Well, with the help of my husband.Delete
Soo cute! I bet your fireplace looks great.ReplyDelete
Makes me smile every day!Delete
Oh those kitties are so adorable! I must have my father make me some (he is the woodcraftsman in our family). Ugh I hate bird noises, especially in the spring and fall when you want to sleep with the windows open and they wake you up way before dawn!ReplyDelete
You should have him make you some! Yeah, Birds and I do not get along. I can only stand a few birds the rest are just annoying.Delete
Love the kitties!!!ReplyDelete
Hahaha, on the Blue Jays! We don't have super noisy birds here, or at least not that I notice (our cats are indoor because they lack basic survival skills), BUT our new neighbors have chickens. Including a rooster. Thankfully, we can rarely hear them in the house, but because of the new puppy, we are in our backyard a lot (she can't be on her own because she's small enough to look yummy to birds of prey and I'm super paranoid they'll snatch her) and that damn rooster has a horrible sense of time. Dark outside? He'll cock-a-doodle-doo. The sun has been up for hours? He'll cock-a-doodle-doo. Smh.
