My drawing skills are lacking . But practice is what makes you better! If you need practice participate in #inktober here is my day 2 sketch. For the prompt black cat. 🖤
Happy black cat appreciation day!
My husband gave me this lovely figure to honor the memory of my ornery black cat, Scratchy. She was one of a kind and I miss her so very much.
1. He has a bowl full of kibble but wants his canned food breakfast.
2. I hope so!
3. No shoes on at the moment
4. Bed, 2 dressers, blanket chest, nightstand, entertainment center (holds books and crafts but no TV), bookcase.
5. Early dinner with his family and late dinner with mine. Ham at both because neither niece likes turkey.
I've been silent for a few days because I had to let my cat Scratchy go. She was 16 years old and was suffering from arthritis and cancer. She was always such a fiesty little furball and lived life on her own terms. I loved her despite her sharp claws of kitty justice. She would also purr just for me. That's how I want to remember her. She will always be in my heart and I'll love her forever. But I miss her so very much.
It's been a harrowing couple of days! It seems Scratchy has arthritis and is in the midst of a flare up. The trip to the vet was awful and included sedation just so she could be examined. Blood work results come back tomorrow. She is on pain meds and is telling us all about her ordeal! I'll probably be up all night monitoring her. I just want her to be ok. And I want to run away with a book. Thanks for letting me unload. 💙
I guess I'm a little late, but happy #blackcatappreciationday! @Texreader the top 3 photos are our new #LittenKitten Minerva and the bottom 3 are our ancient kitty Ursula who passed 6 years ago at the ripe old age of 20. #CatsofLitsy #BlackCats
Not book related but I had to share this pic of my silly cat, Scratchy, attempting to drink water from my bathroom sink. After all these years I still try to help her but she's determined to do it her own way and get soggy in the process! ❤
I‘m traveling for the holidays and this sleepyhead is back home under the care of a loving aunt. How I miss reading on the couch with him beside me! When he sleeps like this, it must be some really GOOD sleep!🤣) #CatsofLitsy #OreoLequan #thugKitty
1. Silly Scratchy prefers to lay on me instead of the bed!
2. Reading, listening to and curating my own music collection, learning about tech.
3. I pick potatoes for both. 😋
4. I've never had an advent calendar. I don't know much about them but am interested.
5. Today I made some copies for a friend and played delivery person.

Thanks so much to @kamoorephoto for such an awesome giveaway! #catmojogiveaway #raok #payitforward
I couldn't choose a favourite photos. So I chose four holiday photos. #Totem is in the top two frames, and #OscarMeyer in the bottom two. Both of my black babes are rescues. Totem was from the local shelter, and was terrified of open spaces 💕 It took a lot of work, but he's such a loud outgoing cat now... that you would never guess he was ever Shy
Cuddling with Scratchy. Loveable and ornery. She's recovering from an infection and the harrowing trip to the vet that stressed out all of us. Anxiety has stolen my ability to concentrate (again) so I haven't read much. #catsoflitsy #blackcats #anxiety
I found these on my desk this morning because my colleagues know that if there are two things I love; it's books and cats. I don't always like my job, but I LOVE my team of teachers❣️❣️
So excited! Look what arrived today! They are gorgeous and double sided, so cool! I‘ll be ordering more from @BookBabe
And yes that is Isabella batting at the tassle
Another catch-up post. This is my beautiful 6 year old girl Raven, who I wanted to show you for #internationalcatday. We've had her for about 10 months.
I admit that I know nothing about the book I tagged, but the title drew me in. Last August we lost our 16 yo cat Max, who was a rescue we'd had for four years. He was a force of nature, and when we lost him we felt like our hearts had been ripped out.
It took me awhile to convince myself that I was ready for a new kitty after the loss of my Binx. However this evil, maniacal, ninja kitty assassin needed a new home. Meet Oreo LeQuan Charles, a.k.a. El Diablo. We love him❣️❣️❣️❣️ (Don't let the sweet face fool you!)
Poor Toby's just so embarrassed he pooped all over the vet today... whoops! He can't even bring himself to look at me - or maybe he just wants his head rubbed 😹
Lots of things make me happy, but this little fur face is one of them. I'm actually severely allergic to cats, so I'll never have a #LittenKitten of my own. Maddie is my brother's cat, so I only see her when I visit him or when he's spending an extended period of time with us. She's a little weird and super ornery at times, but I love her to bits. #funfridayphoto
#FunFridayPhoto I collect bits & bobs from home or abroad for bookmarking. When it comes time to choose one I look for the right one to jump out of the pile by color, theme, or some other feels-rightness. Fun to sift through the memories looking for the perfect mark...
50 cats. All black kitties. 1 per spread. Awesome illustration of the cat's face plus a blurb for each (longer than the above teaser from the flap) that describes how odd and funny each one is. No cats are alike, and every one here is worth getting to know!
