Old Cat, New Tricks

I was devastated when my morning photo shoot with the new cat, Lucy, produced a bunch of blurry shots of her whipping off her antlers faster than she could scream, “Quick!  Somebody call L.A. County Kitty Services — this woman is N-U-T-S!”

As I pried the “HELP ME” sign out of Lucy’s desperate paws, I spotted Marcy lounging on the chair and thought, “Why not?” without much hope.  People, she did not so much as blink when I strapped that humiliating holiday headwear around her chin.  She was all, “Here.  Let me show the new girl how it’s done.”  And she SO did.

Sibling competition — I am totally going to exploit that to my advantage.  “Hey, Skye!  I bet you can make mommy a martini better than the baby can!”  BWA-HA-HA.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
