a few months ago a little missy cat had a wee litter of kitties and they took over our residential area. Everywhere you go you will find a cat. A cat here a cat there... cats everywhere. I always wondered who owned them or who even took care of them. ( PS: it's my neighbors little cat... she just lets him play around outside :) Every time i see a cat i meow at it. you know, it's nice to say hi sometimes. :) And every now and then i would have a meowing contest with a cat. cute.
then one day i met this little one. i can't say if its a girl or a boy so i call it puppy. mr.handsome thinks i'm giving it a complex by calling it a puppy but cats are already complex critters so it's cool. :)
Puppy and I are pals. This is how he greets me whenever i see him. He rolls over on his back waiting to play. adorable right? what a sweet little thing!
we sit and play with twigs. he's such a little pup and full of energy. i love watching him chase & play with everything.
He reminds me so much of my first cat friend i ever had, Sasha. My best friend in high school and i won him at a .25 cent game during a school fair. I convinced my sister ( who is allergic to cats :) to forge my parents signature of approval in order to take him home. Snuck him in my backpack past my mom ( who dislikes all animals ) and introduced him to my dad ( who LOVES animals ) when he got home from work so that he could fall in love with him and allow me to keep him. :)
He quickly became Sasha Hailey Campos ( we gave him a girl name thinking he was a girl at first and then he wasn't hahaaa! go figure! ) oh that little guy was adorable... at the time i also had 2 cocker spaniels and he loved to ride on one of them and eat his dog food. He even learned all the commands: sit, stay, come.... he was perfect.
i've always wanted a cat & a dog. but mr.handsome likes only dogs. :(
I love my little friend puppy. He is so loyal. He follows us home. He loves hanging out on our porch waiting for me to come out and play with him. And all this without giving him treats or food. We just hang out and kick it together. true buddies :)
look at that sweet face!
what's not to love?
I also love how photogenic he is. ;)
puppy love xoxoxo
now onto some thrifty news ( so that you don't completely think of me as some weird cat lady :)
earlier this week i woke up and felt REALLY super awesome. i had this feeling like something good was going to happen. of course. it had to be thrifty related :)
I usually go to only my fav thrift stores but decided to go to one i never really find anything amazing at. Weird right? Yeah, i walk in and find the following 2 pieces.
I had been searching IKEA for a piece of furniture like this but never found one within our price range & sturdy enough. These are 2 separate pieces and we plan on putting the piece with the cubbies on top of the drawer unit.
i quickly snapped these photos and sent them to mr.handsome and got a definite approval.
on top of that i ask about a discount... and sure enough discount + no sales tax. love!
this is my new project. which means my studio room needs to be revamped.
we've begun sanding both pieces down and I have some color ideas for both pieces but i'm to chicken to actually paint them a bold color. I'm thinking a bright vintage green?! yikes! the very thought kind of scares me. Paint it white or go with a bold color? what to do what to do?
what do you think?
girlfriend needs some help :)
