Cats Behaving Badly
“Way down deep, we’re all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.” Jim Davis
I’m sure that dogs consider it a double standard. If a dog engages in poor behavior, he’s scolded harshly; he’s a bad dog. If a cat behaves badly, we roll our eyes and shrug. The cat’s just being a cat.
Inspired by my own cat, Charlie, I designed some coloring cards to celebrate our strange relationship to our feline friends. I call these greeting cards: Cats Behaving Badly. I drew these images with clean, black lines, so that you could express your creativity by coloring them with pencils, crayons, markers… or whatever grabs you. Instead of sending impersonal cards this year, why not let your kids (or you) personalize your cards?
Cards are 110 lb card stock,
5 x 7 inches, and come with envelopes,
A box of 10 cards makes the perfect gift for that cat person in your life (including yourself).
Look for these cards on my Secure Store.
Charlie lounges on my desk while I work, mostly sleeping. If I get up, he’ll often wake and follow me. The other day, I got up to make lunch. Evidently, Charlie did not appreciate my need for nourishment. While I was heating some left-overs in the microwave, I heard the familiar sound of tearing paper. By the time I got back to my desk, Charlie had snatched away my first card, “A Light Snack.” He’d completely shredded it. “Meow,” he said, which translated to, “I knew this would get your attention. Now, let’s get back to your real job: adoring me.”
As Lynn M. Osband said, “The mathematical probability of a common cat doing exactly as it pleases is the one scientific absolute in the world.”
