The beauty of a fluffy sidekick

I am back in Tallahassee, and things are starting to settle back into the normal rhythm. I feel a tiny bit bratty for saying this, but is there anything worse than having to go back to work after an awesome vacation? Seriously, every move I make is punctuated by a mental “I don’t wanna!” I’ll have some trip photos for you guys later on this week, but today I wanted to share with you an article I found about a photo series by Magdalena Grześkowiak of her and her cat Kate throughout the seasons.

Her cat is much better behaved than mine are; most days, it’s like living with a herd of fluffy diva ninjas. I really do wish mine would agree to go on adventures with me. I had the best time seeing all of the different things she and Kate did together. If the glimpse above isn’t enough for you, you can see more of their adventures on their Instagram account.


I’ve been thinking about getting a cattoo…

As you are all well aware, I am completely at peace with my crazy cat lady-ism. Heck, 99% of the time I embrace it wholeheartedly. I love my fur babies, and I have a ridiculous amount of photos to back it up. Which brings me to today: after Charlie died last year, I wanted to get a memorial tattoo, and after 4 (oh yeah, it was 4) failed attempts at getting an appointment with the two artists I was interested in getting work from, I decided to shelve the idea. In hind sight, it wasn’t a bad thing considering I’ve since decided against my previously chosen artwork. Now I am going to wait until I find exactly what I want. However, the itch to get a new tattoo is still there. I’ve been considering getting one of the other tattoos I’ve been wanting, and the top contender is something to take my crazy cat lady status up a notch. I want to get a cattoo.

All of my current tattoos are fairly large and extremely colorful, but for my cat tattoo, I am finding myself drawn to more simplistic black and grey images. I really wish finger/hand tattoos had a better shelf life because a tiny cat on the inside of my right ring finger would be completely awesome, but if I am going to go through the pain, I want it to last.

KitTea

It’s happened! The first cat tea room has opened in the United States. San Francisco, the proud home to the Golden Gate Bridge and the house where Charmed was filmed, can now add yet another exciting destination for locals and tourist alike – KitTea. The trend of tea rooms where patrons could interact with resident felines originated in Japan. Over the last few years, the trend has made its way across Europe with tea rooms in Rome and London, and now the US has one of our very own. If cats and tea aren’t enough for you, all the feline residents are also available for adoption.

I am a Crazy Cat Lady Part 37

My name is Julie and I am a Crazy Cat Lady. I rebelled against tradition and married a wonderful man named Andy, but it’s cool because he is a Crazy Cat Guy. We have six, that’s right, six Crazy Cats. It’s a problem, seriously, I love my fluffy children like super whoa big time. I’ll even go so far as to say that I like my cats more than I like most people. Are you going to lay across my lap when I am cramping and hormonal? I thought not. Just saying. As if I wasn’t crazy enough there is the new-fangled thing called the internet and like 30% of its content is cat-oriented. And they know about me, even the ads on the side of my facebook page are a covert cat overture. Like this neat t-shirt site? Oh wait, while you’re here did you see we have an ENTIRE section dedicated cat stuff? I’m only so strong you guys.

That last one is for you, Estefania! And these six products are a scarily accurate portrayal of my life. Even the tote bag! That’s what it looks like at dinner time in the Bucior household.

I Want to Make It, and Make It Bigger!

This DIY Cat Rope Coil Basket (full tutorial here) by Henry Happened is so damn cute. Perfect for a crazy cat lady like myself. But in true crazy cat lady fashion I can’t just make the basket, I have to make it better, and by better I mean bigger. I need to make a rope coil tote bag! Sure it will be heavy, sure it’ll be unwieldy, but it would be ADORABLE! I could even make one for my mom!

That is pretty much my mental dialog while I was reading through the tutorial. The tote bag idea came from the size of the basket I’d need to make to put one of my cats in it. They’re cute, but in no way dainty.
