So we had a rather unexpected addition to our family recently. An old (and also rather sick) cat came not just into our lives – but also our heart and my studio. ;-)
I know that it sounds slightly crazy to “adopt” an old and sick cat – especially when your husband has a cat hair allergy and you already own a dog. But if we would have not taken her to our home she would have been starved to death by now. (She was being fed, but as she was very sick the food did not really help her much.)
I did not feel like I have a choice. This little being that only consisted of a bit of fur and bones just broke my heart. So she moved into my studio. However, she did not like the box with blankets we gave her. She rather chose her space herself. Typical cat! ;-)
At first I was not too happy that the chosen space was INSIDE my desk. But what should I have done. It is pretty pointless to fight with a cat. And if the cat is old and sick even more so …
She seemed happy, so I put my books and folders aside and put a blanket into the desk and that is where she lives now.
It was kinda fitting that at about the same time some “pets” moved into my online store. (Funny, right?!) First Boomer and Murphy – two melancholic dogs – moved in and are waiting for their new and cozy home.

And of course then a few cats had to follow.

Where would you let the cat or dog buttons live?
If you wanna know my answer come back next week as I will share it in a separate blog post about a little cat and dog home I made last year around Christmas. :-)
Edited: The post about the “home” for cat and dog buttons has been published. :-)
