Because She's a Cat

Whenever I ask my husband why our cat does what she does, he invariably answers "because she's a cat".

Why does she pretend that she is stone deaf when I try and get her off the table, but jumps when a leaf hits the ground outside the closed door?  Because she's a cat.
Why does she stick her entire head into my tea cup while I am still drinking it
?  Because she's a cat.
What possible reason could she have for putting every coin on my dresser onto the floor individually....at 3 am?  She's a cat!
Why would she lick the electrical outlet?  Cat.
Did she just attack that plastic bag?  CAT!

Guess cats don't really need reasons. Mine is content to "be".   My poor well-behaved dog can't believe she does what she does either so that's some comfort.

Why did I put this furry animal at the center of this card?  Because she's a cat!

I used the excellent sketch over at Sweet Stop for this cat-themed card. 

I have been doing a series of orange cats so I decided to keep going with that color scheme!  The Crafty Pad is having a Paper Piecing Challenge, so that came into play as well!  The Pink Elephant is doing "Orange" so I will be entering this card in that one as well!

Here's the finished card:

Because of this look on my dear sweet darling's face, I decided it was time to take the "Quiz" again. 

If you would like to dicipher "that" look that your cat is giving you, check out this helpful test - Is Your Cat Plotting to Kill You?

Have a purr-fect day!
