Mancat Monday & Shabby Chic Day

Inspired by Alfie I am decorating Eldest Boy Beans Dresser. Cats improve any decor don't you know.

 I wish I could claim it was an original idea, but Whiskers taught me this decorating tip.
 Here he is improving the looks of the Dining Room by sitting on the China Cabinet.

Whiskers 2004

We don't have pictures of Whiskers' ultimate decorating achievement he painted the garage, the Boy Beans' go-cart and Daddy's CD player a lovely shade of furred butt blue. Alas instead of going to therapy the beans spent hours cleaning up paint and even took Whiskers' to the vet where the lovely blue butt furs where removed.

I am simply exhausted, us guys have been hard at work. Doing what you ask? Well first Daddy burnt off all the tall grass on the other side of the pond. Then Daddy tilled the ground up and then he (with a little help from the Mom) planted wildflower seeds. I of course had to snoopervise their endeavor.

Mommy and Fenris reported seeing some seeds sprouting after their walk a couple of days later, so it's nice to know all our hardwork wasn't in vain. I am also happy to report that the Stokes' Aster has tons of buds on it and will be blooming soon. The roses are in full bloom and Daddy got more work done on the Hummingbird Cottage. ~Socks
