Antlers For A Higher Purpose

Back in the 90's I had cats.

I guess you could say I was kind of a cat lady...but just a little.

Their names?  Chloe (a black one) and Olivia (a tabby).

I think they really prepped me for life with kids.

No diapers, of course, but there was a lot of poop involved.

There was night waking too.  Every morning at 4am, my sweet 'lil Chloe would sit by the front door and "sing" me awake.  I'd go get her and bring her into my bed.  It was the only thing that would shut her up.  Hmmm, sort of the same as what's happening in our house right now, minus the sitting at the front door...oh, and the "singing".

So I say I was a cat lady...but I wasn't a CRAZY cat lady.  It's not like I took them to sit on Santa's knee at the SPCA or anything.  Okay, maybe I did...don't judge me.

It's not like I bought 'lil mini kitty antlers in the hopes of placing them atop of their furry 'lil heads to take a Christmas picture.  Okay, maybe I did.  But maybe they wouldn't wear them and so I didn't get the picture I wanted and maybe it was a big waste of money ...

... or maybe it wasn't ...

I now know that buying those antlers for my kitties was not a waste of my time or money or sanity because now, some 5 years later that action I took has a purpose.

Perhaps I bought them with some subconscious knowledge that one day the picture I managed to capture would be used for a higher purpose, like linking up with Taming Insanity and her "Antler Up" linky post where she's asked us to don a pair of antlers.

So without further ado, here is the picture that I did take of me and my cats with the antlers I bought for "them" ...

Please enjoy this most festive of holiday photos ...

You'll have to excuse the paisley couch cover.  It was the  '90s

Be sure to check out the other brave bloggers over at Taming Insanity who have donned some of the most impressive antlers I've ever seen.  See what I'm saying?  Brave, not crazy.

Those cats look wicked jealous of your antlers. As they should.

I'm thinking the cats are just happy YOU are wearing the antlers. Maybe. :-/ LOL Too funny!

You are a brave, brave woman even attempting to get antlers on a cat. I would have attempted it, but I'm pretty sure I would be missing a limb by now.

LOL! I'm cracking up right now! I love it. I too thought it would be a good idea to get a couple cats back n the day (pre kids); and now I'm regretting my decision. I still have a minimum of 10 yrs left with my stinky fur-balls dealing with the shedding, hairball barf, and non-stop litter box stank! What Was I Thinking?!?!
