Been wanting to do this for over a year. My white trousers have waited patiently in the bottom drawer, unworn, for such an opportunity to add happiness to them.
got out my fabric pens and OF COURSE turned to cats for inspiration.

This was all freehand work.

back...

front....

cat ate all the pizza and as a result cannot fit in the box

yes, everybody poops.  Hopefully, inside the box.

copying the saying on my favorite bumper sticker

Last year I fostered kittens who began to find their way UNDER the closed door like this one.

I have been rescuing cats for 25 years. Yes, I have lost my marbles.



If I were not so busy rescuing cats and putting color on white pants, I might read a couple of these books

this poor soul does not look pleased with his new hoodie



I yearned for a sink-sleeping cat. I got one, then had to leave the darling behind with the divorce. I go back a lot to visit



wait a minute, that is a repeat pic!  Told ya i had lost my marbles......

So cute! I especially love the cat who ended up being the "butt of the jokes". Cheesy

Wow, that is definitely the purrfect pair of pants!  I love the sheer variety of feline imagery and quotes--it's almost like having double sleeves of tattoos.  You'll probably attract a trail of hypnotized followers when you're out-and-about wearing these too, as people will be trying to see/read everything on them!

She's too big/chubby now, but our cat, Princess Butter Crumb, used to squeeze underneath the bathroom door like that cat on your pants too when she was still a kitten (now, she just contents herself with sinking her claws into the small carpet floormat and pulling that underneath, and through, the door space to express her displeasure at not being allowed inside).

One of my childhood friends had a sink-sleeping cat (probably great in the summer to keep them cool), but I never have.

You should seriously look into marketing/selling custom kitty pants like these; I bet a lot of cat-lovers would be interested!  If nothing else, I bet they'd bring in some good money for an animal charity craft sale.

Thank you all so much for your kind words regarding these trousers! I wore them for the first time the other day (they had their solo flight as one might say) and got great compliments. I picked the solo flight phrase because I was wearing them while up in a plane! My boyfriend is a pilot and he took me up for a night flight in a tiny plane. It was the most awesumist thing evar. First time I have seen my town from above.

I am beyond happy that so many entries have appeared in this challenge. The theme was the best, we have NEVER had so many entries in a challenge, have we?  woo hoo!!

I recall that, around Valentine's Day, you had posted some ATCs of your former boyfriends' names on tombstones (which I didn't comment on, because, as a guy, that's a rather awkward kind of thing for me to respond to) and that you had pretty much given up on romantic encounters for that holiday.  So, I'm glad to read here that you've found a new love interest and I hope that everything between the two of you works out and that you find happiness together!  Maybe you could make him a matching pair of kitty pants? Cheesy

I also agree that its great that this challenge received so many entries; much more than usual!
