A Totally Random, Completely Awesome Picture

My cat's name is Kathryn. When we got her at the shelter some four years ago, her name was Sassy Mama. My daughter and I did not feel that this was a dignified name for her, so we renamed her in honor of Catherine the Great - only spelled differently.

However, the extra pounds she has put on has made grooming herself a decidedly inelegant and undignified chore.

And here's the evidence:


I feel like she was auditioning for the can-can or some naughty cat movie!

In Other News...

Hubby graduates from college this weekend with a degree in auto body. And he already has a job waiting for him. Can you say two paychecks? Woo hoo! The past three years have been tough, but we did it!

It's also my birthday on Saturday, and Father's Day on Sunday.

We're having a get-together on Saturday to celebrate all three occasions. I plan to eat, drink (soda!) and be merry.

    1. Thank you, Debs! I caught her in this same pose today and just had to laugh. Maybe I should make a cat "centerfold" calendar! LOL
