I haven’t blogged this week because I was out of town for a couple days when my Grandma died. I will be doing a blog in remembrance of her as soon as I scan in some photos, but wanted to share something cute in the interim.
My kitten Chessie enjoys little more than snuggling into a good load of freshly washed laundry. As soon as I dump the bag out onto the couch, she runs and jumps right in and becomes a purr factory. It makes for the perfect excuse to leave the laundry there without folding it for a few hours, which is a win-win for me: photogenic cat poses adorably, and I get to procrastinate my least-favorite chore.
Surely there will be more laundry-loving pictures of Chessie in the future, but this is my compilation so far:
My kitten Chessie, in typical family tradition, has decided to shatter the boundaries and mores of society (catciety?) by acquiring an avid interest in plumbing, carpentry, and machinery. Given that she is an indoor kitten, these career paths have been restricted to domestic plumbing, carpentry, and machinery. She is particularly fond of the dishwasher, chairs, and anything involving the toilet or its pipes.
Chessie in action on/around chairs is a bit harder to capture than the moments when she actually sits still on them, so the images below are of her brief periods of rest. And while I do have photos of her in the bathroom, it seems kind of whacky and odd to include those in this pictorial. Thus, I have limited this lil “My Cat, the Handyman” instagram set to Chessie’s affinity for chairs and the dishwasher. Enjoy!
As anyone who knows me even vaguely is glaringly aware of, about a month ago I adopted a kitten. I named her Chessie, after she had a brief stint as WorryFace due to her high, slightly uneven eyebrow situation, and she is the closest thing I ever want to a baby. Why anyone would want a kid when they could have a good looking kitten is well beyond me.
Chessie is a great model, and I’m looking forward to being the best Stage Mom I can be. She likes to put her paws on things like they are her friends, and so began the Chessie and Her Homies photo series. I hope you enjoy these Instagram pictures of the sweetest, cutest kitten around.
And a new one, from today. For some reason no matter what I do it refuses to be the same size as the others, so I am leaving it extra large because it’s extra cute.
