Heed my tale of woe, fellow Craftsters.

This morning while the coffee was brewing before work, I heard quite a commotion coming from my downstairs workshop. The cats love the workshop, but are naughty (of course), so I plodded down the stairs to see what they were up to. I made it halfway there before the sinking realization that I'd left out my just finished inchie houses to dry completely the night before. Oh no! Sure enough, the cats were delighted with the new 'toys' I'd made them. One roof torn through, one floor ripped off, one whole house crumpled into a damp mess of cat mastication. The sample and trial sadly survived unscathed! Damn cats. I know what I'll be doing tonight! Remaking those houses and then immediately putting them somewhere safe! Oy.

Oh naughty !  But totally forgivable!  everyone please hug your cats and look after them cos i was driving home last night and the car in front of me swerved to miss something on the ground, i was going to just keep driving but realised at the last minute it was a kitty cat that had been hit.  I stopped cos i couldnt bearthe thought of a car driving over him and i redirected cars around askingone to call for emergency vet help, then the owners came out.   Ive had a broken heart since then, esp witnessing the neighbours running out in their pj's and picking him up to rush him to the vet.  Oh so sad.  I just went home and hugged and hugged my dogs...

As craftsters, our kids and pets are part of our daily lives...and sometimes things go wrong...it is a shame to have to start again, but, at least you can! Cats will be cats...I bet they loved the wee houses...I know my cats want to add their teeth marks into everything I make!

Oh ninaprettyballerina--so sorry to hear of that tragedy...it does make you appreciate your pet babies more and more!

Thanks. I was panicked about getting new ones done in time, but it worked out great. I wasn't 100% pleased with the first batch (paint dried off color, were a bit flimsy, they just weren't right) so I went a different direction with the new ones and I love them. I didn't have time to do the itty-bitty extras I wanted, but I am much happier with these and they are in the mail. Turns out my cats are art critics, I guess.

ninaprettyballerina - I am sorry to hear about the cat's misadventure and glad you were able to protect it from further harm until the owners got to it. That is heartbreaking.

I'm so glad your second batch worked out. Sometimes that's the way it works, and I guess you have to be thankful for critics, even if they DEstructive, as opposed to CONstructive.  Cheesy
