Everything's a toy!

To Ruse and Audace, everything is a potential toy! Ruse especially enjoys the box that my new wireless mouse and keyboard came in! It's shaped just right. (Audace has tried it out, but he's a bit too big ... funny boy!)


I've stayed away from crocheting anything because of these guys. A couple of years ago, I started to make a new afghan, but the battle with the yarn-chasers was just too much, so I put it all away. Then recently, I was asked to start crocheting little hats for elementary school kids. I thought, "Why not? These are smaller projects and surely the cats wouldn't have much access to too much yarn." Well ... that went OK for a couple of weeks, but today, after I had been gone for about two hours, I came home to find the following!!




See the culprit - Audace! - posing as innocent as you please, in the doorway, as if he had just been a spectator! I laughed and laughed ... and then took photos!

How cute, a yarn trail.

Good job of capturing it on pictures, too.

You can sense him saying, "Not Me" while sitting there so smug.

Great post, needed a laugh this evening.

Saw your comment on the CB about Melvin's toolbar. We have been wondering about it. It sounds as if you really like it.
