Never hire a tabby cat

Never hire a tabby cat.   They sleep on the job and don’t get any work done.   Trust me on this one…

page turner

I actually paid him to turn the pages for me.  I don’t know what I was thinking!


He may look pretty, but those are the eyes of a lazy cat.

  • Nancy - His twin brother, George lives here…he lounges around on the deck all day, just waiting for dinner to arrive, while his more ambitious sister, Emma, who thinks she is a long eared, Nubian Dairy Goat, spends her days in the pasture keeping tabs on her goat and llama family.ReplyCancel

  • Jan - His cousin lives with me. We call him Fat Cat because he only moves to eat. I try to get him to do any work around the house all he does is smirk at me. 😼ReplyCancel

  • Christina - Very true! We have an orange tabby that works very hard testing the comfort of the chair. Since he is geriatric, we don’t mind his extended lunch breaks.ReplyCancel

  • Little Quiltsong - Oh – he totally looks like our Sebastian Cat. Our daughter brought him home from college. I never wanted a cat in the house, but he changed my mind :). We still really miss him. Enjoy your lovable ‘lazy’ cat!ReplyCancel

  • DeAnna Dodson - Believe me, you want a lazy cat.

    I have two busy ones, and it’s like keeping up with toddlers. My lazy one is no trouble at all.

    Of course, if I could teach them to do housework, then we’d be good. :DReplyCancel

  • Judi Reiss - Please, Please Now I am begging – on hands and knees – Please come up with another Pink, Gray, and Blue collection! All the new Moms to be want those colors for their nurseries! Yes, I only know ONE out of 16 new Moms in the last four years who waited to find out “what they are having!” There are no Moms who want generic colors. They either have a then=me which is easy or they want Pink and Gray or Blue and gray!

    My stashof Ooh La LA and Puttin on the Ritz are almost depleted! HELP! I know one was gray and one was taupish but that is what these MOms want!ReplyCancel

  • Karen - That’s a hilarious photo, Anne! Thanks for the afternoon chuckle!ReplyCancel

  • Delcia Rosenow - Ha! Ha! HA! Same goes for our Daisy–but that is far better than our daughter’s Flynn (an orange cat with a catitude) who steals things like the Easter chicky and anything else his little self desires, and even leaves inappropriate wet spots when he’s ticked off. So I enjoy a lazy cat. The alternative isn’t nearly as pleasant! LOL!ReplyCancel

  • Susan K - I have an orange and white tabby. He’s very good at “helping”. He helps keep me from cutting fabric when he lays on the cutting mat and helps keep me from quilting when he lays on the quilt I’m trying to machine quilt. He’s also good at keeping me warm when I’m hand sewing the binding on a quilt. So “Helpful!”ReplyCancel

  • Susan K - I forgot one other way he is “helpful”. Whenever I’m trying to take a picture of a quilt on the floor, he walks or lays on it to give the scale of the project.ReplyCancel
