...rollin' in it!

...and lettin' it all hang out!

Last week I opened my new booth space
and I wanted to use burlap on the dividing walls.
The day before, I laid my material out to iron,
 and soon it was overrun by cats...
drooling, chewing, rolling, sniffing;
a disgusting display.

Sort of like a catnip trip

I was laughing the whole time I took these.

I get this way sometimes myself,
but it's usually around cheesecake or purses.

Just wonderin' if any of you who have kitties have seen this before...?
(love this next one)

Please excuse all the fur and fatness...
just havin' some burlap bliss.

Hope you can join in on
Vintage Inspiration Friday

and speaking of VIF,
I love each one of you for taking the time to come to the party,
and love seeing all that you all share,
but I'm having a little time management issue.

I'm trying to visit each of you.
please don't leave me if I can't leave a comment every week
(oh, guilt is a hard thing)
Just needing to keep it real, kids.

love ya bunches,
and no... that's not me in a cat suit.

  5. Hi Debra, that is soooo cute!... I love kitties, and all their silly antics!... I too get that way over cheesecake and purses!... xoxo Julie Marie

  6. Debra, I have cats and they do this all the time. I was playing with one of mine this weekend (I have 5). As I was sunning, one of them decided he was going to play with my hair? I was laughing so hard. Then, here recently they've decided they like to get right in my face, it's so funny. I love them.

  7. That is too funny!!!! I love it:) Thank you for making my morning:)

  8. Debra, your cat is too cute loving on the burlap. My cat used to be fat like that, but in his old age he has become quite thin. I know what you mean about leaving a comment on each entry. There are not enough hours in a day and I have felt guilty, too, but surely they know we have a life besides blogging.

  9. Clovis and I love fur and fatness, His fatness is sitting on my chest right now! Your kitties are terribly cute in their orgy of burlap♥

  10. HA!!! I love watching fat kitties play on stuff they aren't supposed to be playing on... sometimes I'll lay something on the floor for the laugh!

    LOVE it!


    (time management? what's that?)

  11. Oh girl...I've been known to do the same thing from time to time! Is that what is known as the Cat Daddy Happy Dance?
    Thanks for the giggle and smile...that'll carry me all day!

  12. My Dogs do the very same thing everytime fabric hits the floor.They are two 7lbs dogs and it is the cutest thing ever.Thanks for sharing...very cute!!!

  13. What a fun post; made me laugh out loud!


  14. That's too cute! LOL And no, my cat didn't have that reaction to some burlap I'd left on the floor. She threw up on it.

  15. I don't have a kitty now, but I do remember those days. :D They always have to be up in the middle of things.

  16. too funny! Why over burlap I wonder? Thanks for sharing. A video would have been even better.

  17. Our cats are always surprising me and making me smile. Loved seeing this one find delight in burlap!

  18. Hi Debra, this was such a cute post... I love cats, and yours is sure cute!!! I know what you mean Debra about the time management, I have the same issue, doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done! Now I off and running to get some things done!!!
    hugs~~~ Daphne

  19. Debra, you are so funny! Cat suit. Your kitten is adorable and watching any pet have fun is priceless.

  24. Cute post, it really made me smile!! The cats are having a great time.
    No need to apologize about not commenting on all of the VIF posts. You throw a popular party and it would be very difficult to visit everyone. I for one just appreciate an opportunity to share some vintage inspiration!

  25. Love the new header Debra!

    Cute post...I can't really stretch just yet so I think your sweet kitty is doing it for me!!

    No worries about the party...I just love having a place to soak up some inspiration!!

  26. Love these pics! As I'm reading this post, I have a Basset on her back wagging her tail waiting for a belly rub.

  27. Hello again:)
    So nice of you to follow my blog, I really appreciate it:)
    Have a nice day:)

    Hugs Marianne

  28. how adorable!!!! I get like that around scrap supplies and chocolate :) Sweet pix of your furbaby!!!

  29. What a cute post!~ My they look content!

  30. Haha! I love this; funny kitty!

  31. Your Fur Baby Burlap Bliss is hysterical! I have a Cat that goes into rapture over plastic... it's her drug of choice! *winks* She hasn't done anything but sit on my fabrics... but if they come wrapped in a plastic bag, she's all over it in similar gymnastics to your kitty's Burlap Binge! *LOL*

  32. Funny! Burlap, what a cheap high! Haven't tried this with my kitties. I'll have to leave some out and see what happens.

  33. Ha! How cute is that??? Hey, maybe burlap is made from hemp... that would explain a lot of things. Maybe that is why my computer room is my favorite room now... it's the burlap on the walls! And here I thought the smile on my face was from my accomplishment of cleaning it!
    Many Blessings today!

  34. Hi Debra, You made my day with this cute kitty; I have three Irish Wolfhounds who are nothing but big loves! Blessings to you and your precious furbaby!

  35. Love the cat dance! I firmly believe that cats area really fur people!

  36. Thanks for the much needed laugh!

    But seriously, I'm loving the idea of a burlap wall...maybe I could somehow work it into my jewelry display.

  37. Love it! BTW, I'm also planning to use burlap to cover the walls of my booth. Can I ask how you are adhering yours?

  38. I love this post! My cat Boomer only gets that way over catnip, which may be a clue. Maybe burlap just smells good, LOL! ;-) As for me, I only get that way around chocolate and lace. Hugs, Cathy
