A little knitting and a stupid cat story

A little shawl knitting. I can't remember the pattern name off the top of my head (the same one I used for my green shawl) and I don't remember the yarn other than it's knit picks and the color is called smores. I wanted something a little heavier to throw on my shoulders while I'm working this winter. Something that wouldn't show dirt too much so I don't have to wash it until it smells. How grown up is that line of thought?
And this is where I am on sock #2 of my sixth sense sock.
So how about a litle cat story? It's about the evil one, Oscar.

"Please, Diane, they'll never believe I could be that evil."

Every night before bed my clothes from the day end up on a pile on the floor. In the morning as part of my routine I make the bed and throw the clothes in the wicket basket I use as a hamper in my room. Same routine for the 14 yrs we've lived here.

Yesterday I threw my clothes in the basket and the friggin' basket moved. I screamed, jumped about a foot off the floor, and jumped backwards about 3 ft in a nano second. OMG!!!!! I regroup myself enough to look in the basket and it turns out to be this one shooting me the same pissy look as she is in this picture."Ok well someone has to be evil in the house so it might as well be me."

She's never in my room (because the other two cats hang out there all the time and she hates them) and she's never been in that basket before. I was telling my son about this and he said, "Well, I think she's on her quest to kill you. Since she tried tripping you on the stairs and you didn't die, tried tripping you in the kitchen and you didn't die, she probably decided that maybe a heart attack would do you in." I think my son may be on to something here.

oh yeah.. I get that "pissy stare" every now and then too :) and it's ok, cuz I'm tired of TRIPPING over her and having her eat every scrap of paper in the house!

But at least she hasn't tried to cause me physical harm.. yet!

I think your son has the mind of a true horror writer. ;)

She definitely looks like she has attitude. Maybe she thinks you have 9 lives too.

Re: your comment on my OCD? You definitely do NOT want to hear about the time I picked up the neighbor's trash can lid to be helpful (since it was in the middle of the street). It still gives me the willies. At the time, I actually went in the house and SHOWERED.

LOL! I would have jumped a mile high too. And at least the creature was small and fuzzy.

Patricia said...

Funny. Those felines keep us on our toes. Literally!

Karen said...

LOL. And yes, she does look pretty evil in that picture. Has your husband increased your life insurance policy recently?

LOL.......okay..sorry to laugh at your near fatal heart failure but OMG.....too funny. Good to hear I'm not the only one with animals who are out to get the caretaker........aka Mr. Bettis!

p.s. she has a look of "who me?"

Lynn said...

Don't have to wash it until it smells...... I LOVE that!!! LOL And that story abt Oscar is hysterical!!! He does have a pissed off look, doesnt he?!!? LOL

Rachel said...

Ha ha, that's pretty funny. Hopefully your evil cat doesn't succeed! (Maybe you should try bribery . . .)

Dee said...

He looked so sweet in that first shot, but I believe you son may be right. The cat says you must die!

Yikes! I think you must pay off the cat with kitty-knibbles and catnip.

Deborah said...
