The Perils of Cat Ownership, as Specifically Related to the Pursuit of a Hobby

Posted By on October 3, 2011 at 7:30 am

I started, several months ago, on the construction of the Mayflower. Shortly after beginning, I was rudely interrupted by a tax audit, for which I had to clear off the work table.

Once the audit was complete and the table set up again, I realized I was having rather a lot of difficulty seeing what I was doing. A new prescription for bifocals having been acquired and attended to, I set to work again.

Work has progressed, albeit very slowly. This is helped, in no small part, by the presence in the house of two* of the most curious creatures imaginable. At every step along the way so far, they have sought to intrude, inspect, or inject themselves into the process.

This has, as you might imagine, slowed progress considerably. Nonetheless, a proper posting of the Mayflower’s progress will be published in the near future.

* OK, OK, three, technically… but Mycah is too old and creaky to get up on the table.

    That is not a peril.. that is what makes life interesting and makes you take notice of life :)

    No project is properly complete unless it has its fair share of cat hair on it. The kitties are just doing their duty to make sure this part of the project is done correctly. You should thank them! What looks like idle curiosity is actually serious inspectors making sure everything is up to code.

    Moochie and Czech sez: “Dogs rule, Cats drool!”… OK, we drool a little too, but we’re more fun!
