Spring Cleaning the Cat

     Spring cleaning is one of those things we humans do, often as a way of shaking off the "cabin fever" after months of  cold weather.  Felines often have a different attitude about the bustle of spring cleaning, preferring that things remain exactly the way they were and not get moved around or rearranged. 

     The three cats who think they own my house and that I'm only there to feed them and clean their litter box, have to thoroughly investigate (and hesitate to approach) even a closet door which now is open an inch when before it was completely closed.  Sigh...

     The feline on today's card has taken a firm stand against her part of the spring cleaning.  lol  Image from Whimsy Stamps.

Super cute image and great card! For what it is worth, dogs are sometimes no more fond of spring clinging... the home or themselves! My hubby worked on a garage clean out today... the dogs couldn't stand not knowing what we were doing and yet were so bored by our actions they asked to go back in the house, only to beg to come see what we were doing. In and out, all day. *sigh*

This is awesome and my cat would agree. Great embossing.
