Well for a start when I mean work I mean drawing or painting and my friend are animals.

Why is it as soon as I'm really getting into my art zone and things going great my friends want my attention.My black and white kitten name Peepe le Pu (cos he stinks) for a little cat he puts out a big smell. His clam to fame is he loves to sit on my shoulder, but its his way of getting there I dont like...he will jump on me from a hight and scaring the s... happiness out of me or climb up,I dont mind that this time of year as my art room is cold,double layers of cloths.


Now my black cat Clarance he's partly blind, he's ok he comes to my door and calls out and if you answer he comes over, but if you stand still and don't make a noise he might go away,other wise he walks around sniffing and headbutting everything.This means I keep the floor clean and I dont move things around much,I hate seeing him running or walking it to things.My dog Ruby looks after him,follows him and stops the hens and the kitten from having a go at him,shes the mother of our family.

Do anyone else have the same hassles as me,I would like to hear about them and see photos of your Friends.

What fun pictures Danny! I used to experience similar interruptions from my feline friends Snowshoe and Skid, but they have since passed away. Amazingly, I miss the interruptions. Skid used to grab my paint brush or my pencil. I often wondered if she wasn't an artist herself! Here she is last summer out at the catnip station:

My shanti, ( a small black cat) looks like yours except she has more blue/green eyes.  She likes to sit on what I'm working on.  Our other cat Lofi, likes to push his head again my hand when I'm trying to draw lol. But I love them. Couldnt live without them.  They are my friends. I'll find a few photos and post them.  Your black cat is big! What a lovely cat.

danny, your cats look like they love each other, all cuddled up on the same chair. Our two fight sometimes, a male and female, they are siblings, may that explains it. lol

Hi Pauline  the cats do look cute all huddled up together, but the cats are Suzannes, sadly the black and white also the ginger cats are no longer with her.

there is no way my cat friends will do that yet, Fat cat (black cat) is to grumpy to share with anyone.

Comment by Pauline Donohoe on August 31, 2011 at 6:09am
I'm sorry Danny to hear they are no longer there.  We have had ours since they were ten days old and they are 13 now. I cant imagine life without them even if they dont cuddle up lol.
