Cat Lady

Don't get me wrong. I love dogs. I grew up in a family that always had a dog or two or three, and I thought I was strictly a dog person right up until I took in a tiny orphaned kitten. I named him Ryker, and he slept on my chest each night, kneading my bony sternum as though it was a batch of bread dough. Imagine how happy he'd be pushing his paws into my current soft fleshy self.

My favorite character in the Shrek movie series is Puss in Boots, and I crack up every time he tries to manipulate others with his big dewy eyes routine. So when I happened across these stuffed animals with big ol' Puss in Boots eyes, I had to get them for my girls.

Monkey!


Doggie!



Twins!
Woops. I mean, Lion! and Froggie!



Dinner last night: chicken noodle casserole, snap peas

It is all about monkey and dogs at my house. JDaniel has to sleep with them at night. Sometimes a rabbit slips in.

I love the eyes on those things! That dog is just too cute...although the twins have nearly just as big of eyes. How do you ever say no?

Ha.....they are so cute, I can see why they were irresistible! =]

My Princess would love those. She picks a different "lovie" every night to sleep with. Her lack of loyalty has me worried.

Love the pictures!

I'm all about the monkey! Chuckle.

As long as I can remember, I've always had a cat... Dogs never lasted long...

I'm a dog person. I have three. And a chicken person. I have four. I do have a cat, but just one, so I don't think that makes me a cat person. Just a crazy animal hoarder person.

I've always thought of cats as uninvolved and unloving but that's because I've never had one. I've definitely seen some that are loving and sweet. I'm more of a dog person.

I linked to your blog about cursive handwriting in my blog today!

Too cute, I mean your girls not the stuffed animals - they are kinda creepy.

Make it a great day!

awwww, how cool ... such big and loving eyes ... the size tells how much love they have for you (sorry I know I am an adult but these stuffed animals still tickle my heart)
