life with kittens installment 6

so many more done since I last shared



taking up flower arranging

I'm fond of this collection of dried seedheads from my garden, friends etc, collected over time



and the inevitable CRASH happened - bits of dried flowers everywhere and some very naughty words said ......



they follow me everywhere - I have to move them out of the bath several times before I have a shower - they like to play with the plug and watch the water







and Smokey does a wall-of-death running round the end of the bath chasing his tail and slithering down the sides on his velvet paws



and the cliche kitten thing ...



they enjoyed helping with framing for recent exhibitions



this was done for a sketchbook exchange with a topic 'there's music in the air'



an aerial view of me eating lunch in my recliner with soulful eyes and sneaky paws watching



living with a pair of vandals



and a pair of keen ornithologists



insisting on cuddles when I'm online



or playing with the cursor

Re: life with kittens installment 6



dragging my painting pinafore from the kitchen to the living room



Simi chasing his tail around the arm of my desk chair



Stealing and playing with a spiky seedhead I'd drawn



meeting me as I open the door



helping themselves to the cat treats I had in my desk drawer



keeping my feet warm while I work

and Smokey has taken up mountaineering on the bookshelves
- that in the next installment

Re: life with kittens installment 6

oh and Smokey is now quite a bit bigger than Simi - a similar size when they arrived, He's going to be a huge cat - his Norwegian forest side is really coming out

Re: life with kittens installment 6

Those Norwegian’s get to be big cats. I would be tempted to take some of these and turn them into finished paintings, because they seem like the kind of thing that I would enjoy painting. My own cat has gotten massive, and I think he is still growing longer and taller by the day (only slightly over a year but most the cats I have had in the past were full grown by then, not my big guy here though).

Enjoying the series, thanks for sharing!

Re: life with kittens installment 6

Thanks 😀 one thing I read said they don’t mature until they are 5 years old 😳. He’ll be huge if he keeps growing at this rate! They have reached the terrible teens at the moment

Re: life with kittens installment 6

Lots and lots of fantastic mischief being depicted in these. One of my two cats (the sister) regularly pounds around in the (empty) bath after the morning feed. I can hear her from downstairs while I'm having a cup of tea before I go to work. Whenever I go up and investigate, she hears me coming up the stairs and stops. I go in the bathroom and she's just sitting there looking up... "What's that you say? Banging? No, no. Nothing to see here. Are you going to work today or not!"

Great expressive sketches. I can identify with them so much.

Re: life with kittens installment 6

these are all SO wonderful to remind us of when ours were but growing kittens. The mischief, the misdeeds, and the memories.

Oh, they will. There will be moments when everything is calm and you will hardly hear a peep out of them all day. And that's when you know something is afoot... something big and planned is coming!
